Meanwhile, Perry’s fans are speculating that she is set to drop a new single this week, titled “Never Worn White,” that references the estranged pair’s nuptials. They wed in India in a lavish ceremony featuring elephants, and the bride wore a gray wedding gown from Elie Saab Haute Couture.

The lyrics for the new ballad reportedly include the lines, “But I’m scared / Cause I’ve never worn white / But I wanna get it right / Yeah I really wanna try with you / No I’ve never worn white.” Perry got engaged to Orlando Bloom in February 2019 after rekindling their romance in January 2018. Us exclusively reported last month that the pair are set to wed in April.

Perry and Brand revealed they were dating in October 2009, and the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor proposed to the “Firework” singer after three months of dating. The duo tied the knot in October 2010 but announced their separation 14 months later. Their divorce was finalized in July 2012.

The 13-time Grammy nominee reflected on her marriage to Brand while speaking to Paper magazine in February 2019. “I’m very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things. I mean, I was married when I was 25. I’m 34. It was almost 10 years ago,” she said at the time. “I was like, ‘One person for the rest of my life,’ and I’m not so sure that that idea is for me. I’m just such a different person than I was.”
