Orlando Bloom’s ‘partying led to the end of marriage to Miranda Kerr’
Orlando Bloom’s wild party lifestyle was rumoured to have led to the breakdown of his marriage to Australian model Miranda Kerr – a claim the pair both denied
Orlando Bloom split from his first wife Miranda Kerr in 2013 amid rumours the actor’s partying had played a part in the breakdown of the relationship.
It’s been almost exactly 10 years since the couple tied the knot in an intimate and private ceremony in the US on 22 July 2010.
The pair had been married for three years and had become parents to a son, Flynn, now nine, before their shock split.
In a statement, released in October 2013, the former couple revealed they had been separated for several months and had decided to make the break permanent.
They explained: “Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months.
“After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation.”
“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”
However, the pair were plagued by rumours suggesting Orlando’s party lifestyle had contributed to the breakdown of their marriage.
The suggestion was denied by Orlando’s representative, while a spokesperson for Miranda said there was “no truth” to the story.
RadarOnline had reported that Miranda grew tired of Orlando’s wild nights out, with a source telling the publication: “I think the drinking was the flaw Miranda used to file the divorce,’ the source added.
“Miranda hated when Orly would drink a lot and become someone else.”
The insider added that a party held by Orlando’s Lord of The Rings co-star Sir Ian McKellen in New Zealand in June 2013 was one of the final straws.
They claimed: “Orlando got wasted at one of Ian McKellan’s famous dinner parties, which was mostly just a wine party.
“Miranda hates when Orly [his nickname] gets drunk the way he does because he often blacks out or forgets where he is.
Someone usually walks him home just to be safe, but I think the drinking was the flaw Miranda used to file the divorce.”
Orlando and Miranda divorced in 2013 and the actor is now engaged to pop star Katy Perry, who is expecting their first child together this summer.
Miranda went on to remarry, tying the knot with Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel in 2017.
The couple are parents to two sons, Hart and Myles.
