Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr Split: Actor and Model Confirm End of Three-Year Marriage

October 25, 2013

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have split after three years of marriage. The British ‘Lord of the Rings’ actor and the Australian Victoria’s Secret model made an official announcement that they are no longer a couple.

It was Bloom’s rep who gave the official, exclusive confirmation to ‘E! News: “In a joint statement, 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.”

The 36-year-old Orlando Bloom and the 30-year-old Miranda Kerr had been married for three years — their wedding was in July 2010. They had, dated for a few years prior to their marriage. They have one child together, a son, Flynn, born in January 2011. The Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr had famously displayed her post-baby body less than three months after giving birth and shared her eclectic healthy diet and fitness tips which ran the gamut from green veggies and green tea to a daily yoga routine.

The news comes as a surprise, as the couple appeared to be happy and in love. They were frequently affectionate as they made joint appearances on the red carpet, as seen in the picture above, taken earlier in the year during what were happier times for them as married partners.

The couple was also seen together at the red carpet premiere for the new Broadway production of Shakespeare’s tragedy, ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ Orlando Bloom — best known for his portrayal of elf prince Legolas in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies — is making his Broadway debut in the play, opposite Tony-nominee Condola Rashad.

Hours after the announcement of the split, TMZ cameras caught up with Orlando Bloom in New York and, when asked if he and Miranda Kerr remained friends, he said, “We’re not friends; we’re family.” You can see the video below.
