Katy Perry has broken her silence amid whispers that boyfriend Orlando Bloom has been getting cosy with Selena Gomez. "Instead of giving energy & eyeballs to dumb conspiracy check out how [COOL] this is," the singer tweeted, along with a link to Orlando's recent TIME article about his UNICEF ambassadorship. Katy, 31, also added the hashtag "#dontfeedthebeast."
Selena herself was among those who supported the post, retweeting the message on social media and adding a praise hands emoji alongside. She then followed it up with: "#killemwithkindness – one day they'll get it lol."
Katy Perry has responded to reports linking boyfriend Orlando to Selena
Katy and Orlando, 39, are yet to officially confirm their romance, although their numerous loved-up public appearances seem to suggest they are very much an item. The couple, who were first linked together at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, were most recently pictured at the Met Gala, when they wore matching Tamagotchi accessories.
Orlando and 23-year-old Selena, meanwhile, were pictured hanging out together in Las Vegas in the early hours of Saturday morning, following the first concert of her Revival tour. The pair have been romantically linked in the past, but numerous sources have confirmed they are absolutely just friends.
The singer told fans to ignore the "dumb conspiracy"
Shortly after the photos emerged, Katy posted a cryptic tweet, writing, "Is that all there is?" along with a video of Peggy Lee singing the song.
"And then I fell in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world," Peggy sings in the jazz track. "We would take long walks by the river / Or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes.
"We were so very much in love / Then one day, he went away and I thought I'd die / But I didn't / And when I didn't I said to myself, 'Is that all there is to love?'"
