It was their first stroll down the carpet as a couple since rumors surfaced about the two reuniting earlier this year. Bloom and Perry made their reintroduction on Wednesday at the Gala for the Global Ocean, hosted by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, at the Opera of Monte-Carlo, in Monaco.
Ahead of the event, Perry posted an Instagram Story of the Lord of the Rings actor putting on his tuxedo and shaking his butt to Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” She even added a sticker to the video that said “Lemme touch ur butt” in a pink heart.
The 41-year-old actor and the 33-year-old singer were first connected in 2016, after being seen cozying up at a Golden Globes afterparty. Just a year later, in February 2017, the couple announced their uncoupling. They were “taking respectful, loving space,” according to a representative at the time.
It wasn’t long until Perry addressed their breakup on Twitter, writing, “U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain.”
However, earlier this year, Bloom and Perry ignited rumors that they were back together after being seen taking trips together—to the Maldives, where they celebrated the holidays, and to the Vatican, to meet the Pope. In June, Perry accidentally left at NSFW comment on one of Orlando’s Instagram posts, writing, “I need a season pass for that ass,” then quickly followed it up with, “oops I meant to send that to you privately.” While it looked blatantly obvious, Perry hasn’t commented on their relationship or being with Bloom again other than saying “she’s spoken for.”
