These two need to stop playing with our heartstrings! After breaking up last year, it seems like Orlando Bloom (AKA the one that got away) is back in Katy Perry‘s life. So how did this happen? When did they happen? We have so many questions.
The Sun reports the two are “officially dating again” after going on a romantic getaway to the Maldives. It also turns out Orlando and Katy were never really out of each other’s lives – and according to friends, they care about each other a lot.
“They’re back on,” a source close to the couple told the website. “Katy wants to make things work this time around. She tried, but she couldn’t cut him off. She cares too much about him. This time, they’re keeping things low key — but they’re back together.”
Honestly, this is great news! Ever since they broke up, we’ve all been secretly hoping they would find a way to make it work. The couple first started dating in 2016 after they were spotted partying together at a Golden Globes after-party. If you’ve ever seen the photos from that event, you’ll agree that their chemistry was undeniable. Following the party, they began a pretty serious relationship.
They ended up splitting in March 2017 due to their busy schedules, but remained friendly. The two later sparked reconciliation rumors in August after attending Ed Sheeran‘s concert together.
“They have never cut communication since they broke up,” a source told E! at the time. “They just took a break because it was the best thing for them at that time, [but they] are seeing each other again.”
“Katy and Orlando want this to work this time, so they are working on mending their relationship. They’ve had some really good talks and have a better understanding on their needs. Time will tell at this point, but [things are] looking very positive,” the insider continued.
The source also went on to say that Katy and Orlando don’t care if people see them out in public together. “They love each other and never stopped,” the source added.
However, the rumors ended there… until now. Then last month, they enjoyed spent some time in the Maldives together, where fans took a photo of the two having breakfast during the getaway.

We can’t forget to mention the fact that Katy and Orlando are constantly flirting on social media. Not only do they like each other’s pics, but they comment too! For instance, Orlando posted a super hunky photo of himself on Instagram and Katy commented, “You’re making yourself drool.”
Need proof? A fan account even took a screenshot of their interaction!

Whether they’ll stay together remains unknown, but considering how many times they’ve gone back to each other, it seems only right that they give their love the shot it deserves!
