Orlando Bloom says his relationship with Katy Perry can be 'really, really, really challenging' because they run in different circles

  • Orlando Bloom recently opened up about his relationship with his fiancé, Katy Perry.
  • “Sometimes things are really, really, really, challenging,” Bloom told Flaunt. “I won’t lie.”
  • Perry has said of their relationship: “It’s exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable.”

Orlando Bloom opened up about his relationship with his fiancé, Katy Perry, and it’s not all daisies and daffodils.

The actor discussed the challenges he and his “baby mama and life partner” face.

“We’re in two very different pools,” Bloom told Flaunt. “Her pool is not a pool that I necessarily understand, and I think my pool is not a pool that she necessarily understands.”

Bloom added: “Sometimes things are really, really, really challenging. I won’t lie.

“We definitely battle with our emotions and creativity, [but] I think we’re both aware of how blessed we are to have uniquely connected in the way that we did at the time that we did, and there’s definitely never a dull moment.”

Bloom and Perry got engaged in February 2019 after three years of dating. They announced the birth of their daughter, Daisy Dove, in August 2020.

Perry and Bloom met in 2016 and were on and off until they got engaged in 2019.

Perry has previously discussed her relationship with Bloom, which she also described as “challenging.”

“It’s exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable,” Perry told Vogue in 2020. “I’ve never had a partner who was willing to go on an emotional and spiritual journey like Orlando. It’s challenging because you’re facing all the things you don’t like about yourself. It’s like a never-ending cleanse.”

Bloom is back on the small screen for season two of Prime Video’s “Carnival Row,” which premiered Friday. Perry, meanwhile, returned to Las Vegas this month for her concert residency, “Katy Perry: Play.”

While there’s no denying the couple’s success, Bloom still finds time to contemplate life, the universe, and, well, everything.

“I think we’re all just humans navigating,” he told Flaunt. “We have to learn to accept each other. And I think everybody’s fallible. Everybody’s flawed, and everybody’s just looking to improve.

“I’m personally trying to evolve … attain enlightenment in this lifetime. I’m trying. I’ll keep trying. Here I am.”
