Miranda Kerr opens up on love: 'I know the truth, I am single'

Since Miranda Kerr split from her husband of three years, Orlando Bloom, she has been rumoured to be dating her friend James Packer, but now the Victoria's Secret model has opened up on her relationship status.

"I know the truth, I am single, and the people that are important to me know the truth, and that is all", she revealed to the Sunday Times Style magazine this weekend.

She added: "James and I are friends, but people want to make a story, the public want to put me with someone."

Australian billionaire James and 31-year-old Miranda have known each other for a long time, and reports first romantically linked them back in December. At the time, sources confirmed they were just friends but it is thought they recently started a blossoming new relationship.

Miranda and Orlando have a three-year-old son together, named Flynn, and Miranda also revealed that her nanny accompanies Flynn to his father's house.

The model said: "I have a nanny who comes when I work, but when I get home she leaves and I switch my phone off.

"The nanny is with him all the time when he is with Orlando. Don't get me wrong, he's a great dad, it's just me being a protective mother and wanting to make sure all his needs are met."

She added, "I want to keep Flynn's routine. Orlando's fine with it. In fact, he likes it, it's less pressure."
