Katy Perry Reveals She Was Suicidal After Split From Orlando Bloom in 2017
Although they are now happily engaged and expecting their first baby together, they did split for a while in 2017. Recently, Katy Perry talked about her breakup and revealed that she was suicidal.
A timeline of her relationship with Orlando Bloom:
It all began at the Golden Globes 2016. At the after-party, the pair started flirting and left together. The same year, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom attended Coachella with a group of friends. In May, Never Worn White singer posted pictures of them on Instagram and made their relationship public. Throughout that year, the couple attended events and parties together. However, they broke up the very next year. But the breakup did not last long and they got back together after a few months. Since then, they are going steady, are engaged and expecting a daughter who will be arriving soon.
Recently, Katy Perry revealed that she was suicidal after her 2017 split from Bloom.
In a recent interview, Katy Perry revealed she had suicidal thoughts after Orlando Bloom and she called it quits in 2017. However, that was not the only reason. Her album, Witness, did not do well on the charts and contributed to the suicidal thoughts. While talking to SiriusXM CBC, she said:
‘My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic. I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be. And then I was excited about flying high off the next record. But the validation did not make me high, and so I just crashed.’
However, it was Katy Perry’s faith which helped her get out of that difficult situation. Furthermore, she said:
‘It was so important for me to be broken so that I could find my wholeness in a whole different way. And be more dimensional than just living my life like a thirsty pop star all the time. Gratitude is probably the thing that saved my life, because if I did not find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped. But I found the ways to be grateful. If it gets really, really hard I walk around and say, “I am grateful, I am grateful!”; even though I am in a sh***y mood.’
A few months back, she revealed her pregnancy in the music video of Never Worn White. While Bloom already has a son, it will be Perry’s first child.
