Orlando Bloom apparently can’t keep his hands to himself. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, who has been dating Katy Perry since hitting it off at the Golden Globes back in January, was spotted getting extra snuggly with Selena Gomez at Light nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 7, and the internet is freaking the F out.
“Dude. Orlando. Whoa. Simmer down, man. She's 23,” one fan tweeted in response to the photos of actor, 39, and “Hands to Myself” singer intertwined on a couch. “Orlando Bloom went from Katy Perry to Selena Gomez. What a tragic downgrade,” a Perry fan added.
The fact that Gomez is BFFs with the “Roar” singer's nemesis Taylor Swift didn’t help calm the frenzy either.
“If orlando bloom is really flirting with selena gomez (poor katy perry), taylor swift is probably doing a victory dance (not nice) #badblood,” another person tweeted.
Although an eyewitness told Us Weekly that “Selena was just trying to have a good time with her friends” and that “Orlando was all over her,” the duo’s complicated relationship dates back to 2012, when Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber reportedly flirted up a storm with Bloom’s then-wife Miranda Kerr.
As fans well remember, Bieber and Kerr allegedly hit it off backstage at that year's Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which naturally pissed off Bloom, who later separated from Kerr in 2013. The following year in July 2014, Bloom and Bieber got into an altercation at hot spot Cipriani in Ibiza. As previously reported, Bieber attempted to say hello to Bloom, who failed to acknowledge him, prompting the “Sorry” singer to snipe: “Tell Miranda ‘What’s up.’”
Bieber then allegedly ducked Bloom’s punch, and the following day, the “Love Yourself” singer posted a meme on Instagram of Bloom crying.
Their own drama aside, fans are now wondering what will be done by Perry, who was busy at a Renaissance festival in California on Saturday when the canoodling went down.
