Why did Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr split up? We are unreasonable sad about hearing the news of their impending divorce today. We’ve always thought the Lord of the Rings star and the beautiful former Victoria’s Secret model were such a delightful couple. They always glowed in photos and seemed like a happy, sweet pair who loved each other and doted on their sun.
Alas, Hollywood is all about appearances and apparently their marriage wasn’t all roses and sunshine after all. A rep for the couple confirmed Friday that an Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr divorce is on the way. No explanation was given for why they have called it quits on their three year marriage.
“In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months,” a rep for Bloom confirmed to the New York Daily News. “After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation.”
Orlando and Miranda began dating in 2007 and were married in 2010. Their son, Flynn, was born in 2011. Rumors of an impending split started popping up late last year when the two stopped appearing in public together very often. Miranda was also photographed without her wedding ring more than once.
At the time, rumors of trouble in paradise were dismissed and even Bloom’s mother said the couple was fine. We note, however, that Miranda only posted one photo of her husband on her constantly updated Instagram feed in the past nine months.
The couple plans to keep things amicable, however, and there does not seem to be any hard feelings over the breakup. “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family,” Bloom’s rep said.
We’re sad to see them go their separate ways but applaud them for keeping it classy.
