American Idol season 19 judge Katy Perry has had a long career and has dated a few famous men over the years. Before becoming engaged to actor Orlando Bloom, Katy’s love life was somewhat intense and dramatic. Alas, many American Idol fans may have forgotten about Katy’s dating history, previous marriage, and other high profile relationships.
Katy Perry’s first celebrity relationship started in 2007, when she was linked to singer Travis McCoy. Both of them were just coming onto the music scene, and they stayed together for two years. However, in 2009, Katy broke things off via an email. Travis later said that he struggled with subtance abuse during their relationship, and Katy’s song “Circle The Drain” is said to be about him. She briefly dated two other musicians in 2009. Her short relationship with singer Josh Groban ended when they decided that they’d be better off as friends. Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine also had a brief relationship with Katy, and she is rumored to have helped the band write the song “Old Piano.”

Katy Perry & Russell Brand
By the end of 2009, Katy Perry had found new love with her soon-to-be husband, comedian and actor Russell Brand. The two met at the 2008 VMA awards, where Russell asked Katy to do a cameo for his upcoming movie, Get Him To The Greek. They officially started dating after meeting up again at the 2009 VMAs, and Russell proposed to her just three months later during New Year’s Eve. Katy and Russell tied the knot in October 2010 in India at a private, romantic ceremony. However, only 14 months later, the relationship ended. Katy said in an interview that Russell brand broke up with her over a text message on December 31, 2011. The constant media attention over them as a couple, as well as Katy’s hectic work schedule and rising fame, were the reasons Russell pointed out as being destructive to their marriage.
Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom
Katy Perry’s quest for love didn’t end with Russell, but in 2012, she got into another highly-publicized relationship, this time with singer John Mayer. The pair were in a tumultuous, off-and-on relationship until 2014. They broke up three times before calling it quits for good. Alas, when Katy met actor Orlando Bloom in 2016, she didn’t know that it would finally be true love. The two bonded over an In-N-Out burger at the 2016 Golden Globes, and hit it off at an after-party. They dated until 2017, and then briefly split. When they rekindled their relationship in 2018, things started getting serious quickly. Orlando proposed on Valentine’s Day in 2019 with a ruby and diamond ring. The couple announced in March, 2020 that they were expecting their first child. Their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, was born in August 2020.
Even though Katy Perry’s love life had many ups and downs in the past, she and Orlando Bloom seem like the real thing. The two aren’t in any rush to get married, but will undoubtedly have a beautiful wedding sometime soon. The American Idol fans have heard a lot about Katy’s life outside the show, and wish her happiness with Orlando and their baby daughter.
