While many celebrities like to keep their relationship as quiet as possible, Orlando and Katy couldn’t help but gush about each other on their air. “She’s a remarkable human being, actually,” People reports Orlando told The Times regarding Katy. “And you know, when you get hit sideways you get hit sideways. You don’t pick who you fall in love with.”

As for Katy, she sang a song in March 2018 that many fans assumed was about Orlando. At a concert, she even prefaced it with, “[I feel] very loved. And this next song is about being so loved and so seen that you never ever have felt this feeling before.”

The couple sparked engagement rumors when Katy was seen out and about wearing a huge diamond ring during the beginning of their relationship, People reports. And another source told the publication, “They are not engaged yet, but are very serious.”

That’s not all, either. The source also said Orlando wasn’t this serious about anyone since first meeting his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr. “He would love to settle down and have more kids,” the source added.

It seems the couple ran into multiple bumps in the road throughout their relationship until they finally decided to split. Mirror.co.uk says sources back in November 2016 claimed they were going their separate ways because Katy wasn’t ready to settle down. Another source said she was breaking up with Orlando due to “different life paths.”

The real breakup didn’t happen until midway through 2017, however. And they each had nothing but good things to say about each other after all was said and done. “We’re friends. It’s good. We’re all grown-up,” Orlando said at the time.

Next: Could they be back on? Fans think so after Katy said this.

She didn’t go into much detail, but fans definitely heard Katy tell the world she’s no longer single on the air. People explains Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin was a guest star on the American Idol season finale when the whole thing went down.

Perry jokingly got on her knees and asked Kufrin is she could be in the running for the Kufrin’s love. Kufrin laughed and said, “Yes, I’ll give you all my roses.” Katy then responded with, “I’m not single but I still like you.”

Next: That’s not the only time she’s said she’s seeing someone recently. 

6. She also says she’s ‘been spoken for’ in recent interviews

Even before the moment on Idol, Katy gave hints there was a man in her life. People explains that while at a red carpet event in April 2018, Entertainment Tonight asked Katy if she would ever date a contestant. Katy then told them, “No, I’m sorry I have been spoken for and speak for myself.”

The news outlet again asked Katy if she’s spoken for following her first comment. She convincingly replied, “Yeah, of course I am!”

It seems Katy’s Idol co-stars are also ready to meet Orlando. Luke Bryan even mentioned him by name when he said, “I haven’t met Orlando yet to suss him out, check this guy out.”

We’ll never forget this infamous photo, and neither will Katy or Orlando. Elle reports the two were paddleboarding off the coast of Sardinia when they thought the coast was clear of paparazzi. Orlando then decided to paddleboard totally in the nude.

“We’d been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free,” Orlando said. He then continued by saying, “Note to self: You’re never free. Ha!” Perhaps Orlando will think twice about putting himself out there again now that he’s back in the spotlight.
