On the American Idol season finale Monday night, Katy Perry let it slip that she isn’t single, and all signs are pointing towards a reunion with her ex, Orlando Bloom.
“I’m not single but I still like you,” Perry joked to Bachelorette contestant Becca Kufrin after asking if she could be “in the running.”
This tidbit, in combination with multiple recent Perrybloom sightings, have led fans to draw the conclusion that the exes are most definitely on again. Most recently, Perry and Bloom travelled to Vatican City where they met the Pope (yes, that Pope) together. In her Instagram story, Perry told fans she was in Rome to speak about meditation, and that she was with her mother, her manager, and her “darling” (referring to Bloom).
Darling? The Pope? Sounds pretty serious!
In late March, Perry and Bloom were caught dressed as Mario and Luigi in Tokyo (something to do with go-karting?), the same night the songstress had dedicated a song to feeling loved, which could be a reference to Bloom:
“I feel very loved and this next song is about being so loved and so seen that you never, ever, have felt this feeling before. This feeling of love,” she said.
And in January, Perry and Bloom were spotted vacationing in the Maldives together, although it’s unclear whether it was that kind of vacation, or just two friends catching up.
The pair first started getting flirty in early 2016 at the Golden Globes afterparty, later going on a string of dream dates like an Adele concert, a Hawaiian vacation, Coachella, the Cannes Film Festival, and of course, paddleboarding (we’re getting tired just thinking of all these activities).

Later, in March 2017, their reps confirmed they had split, but a source told E! News that they “never lost touch” during their time apart.
And now, it seems as though Perrybloom is back in full force. Bring on the quirky costumes!
