Star looks to calm speculation after duo confirm they are taking ‘loving space’ from one another

Pop star Katy Perry has insisted “no one’s a victim or a villain” after her split from Kent actor Orlando Bloom.

The US singer posted a message on Twitter in which she appeared to address her break-up from Bloom after it was confirmed earlier this week.

Without naming the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor, Perry wrote: “How (about) a new way of thinking for 2017?

“(You) can still (be) friends and love (your) former partners!

“No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!”

Perry’s message came as she unveiled a dramatic new hairstyle, going from a long blonde bob to a shaved pixie cut.

In a joint statement issued earlier this week, Perry, 32, and Bloom, 40, confirmed they were taking a break from their relationship.

The famous duo had been dating for little more than year and were spotted together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party on Sunday night.

Their statement said: “Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

Bloom has a son with supermodel ex-wife Miranda Kerr while Perry was previously married to British comedian Russell Brand.

Orlando Bloom grew up in Canterbury before hitting global fame with roles in Pirates of the Caribbean and the Lord of the Rings films.
