Katy Perry Says She and Orlando Bloom ‘Continuously Put in the Work’ to Make Their Relationship ‘OK’

Katy Perry shared some rare insight into how she and fiancé Orlando Bloom preserve their love after all these years.

“Orlando and I’s initials are O.K.,” the 38-year-old “Wide Awake” singer captioned on Instagram on Sunday, April 30, alongside a photo of herself and the Carnival Row alum, 46. “We are constantly working to ensure they are not K.O.” Find a partner who will go down to the mat with you and get back up with you every time.”

“I love you my fighter @orlandobloom,” the California native wrote at the end of her post. 
“I love you and our love bombs wouldn’t have it any other way,” the Pirates of the Caribbean star replied in the comments section.

Perry tagged the photos with “The Hoffman Process,” a week-long therapy retreat aimed to help participants recognize and overcome harmful behaviors and thought patterns. The “Teenage Dream” singer has previously stated that the strategy has helped her and Bloom maintain a good relationship.

The couple, who began dating in 2016, briefly parted in 2017 before reuniting a year later. Bloom proposed in February 2019, and the couple’s daughter Daisy, now two, was born in August 2020. (Bloom also has a 12-year-old son with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, Flynn.)

“Orlando went before me,” Perry talked of The Hoffman Process on Chelsea Handler’s “Dear Chelsea” podcast in May 2022. “He returned after going and wasn’t leaning into all of my nonsense, so it was boring. It became tedious, and I exclaimed, ‘We’re breaking up then!’ And then I had the worst year of my life, not just because of relationships, but because so many other things were moving and changing for me, which I genuinely believe was an opportunity for me to mature and grow.”

The American Idol judge then went through The Hoffman Process herself, learning how to change the “patterns and habits” that were impacting her well-being. “It profoundly changed my life,” Perry, 48, said. “It’s the first thing I recommend when someone is ready to advance in life.”

The singer also mentioned that she and her fiancé go to couples’ therapy, which she says helps them stay “in tune” with one another. “When you’re both working hard,” Perry noted, “the resentment can get really strong.” “And God bless successful people in the spotlight, and so when you want to be normal in a domesticated world where you have a child and stuff like that, you really have to learn how to be kind of different out there in the big and in the small. As a result, we’ve had a lot of success with couples’ therapy.”

Earlier this year, the “Dark Horse” singer said that she’d recently quit drinking after speaking with Bloom. “I’ve been sober for five weeks today,” Perry stated at a New York City event in March. “I made a pact with my partner to quit,” she says.

When her American Idol co-star Luke Bryan asked if she was going to cave that night, the American Music Award winner responded no. “I can’t cave,” she said. “I made a pledge. Two months.”
