Who is Katy Perry Dating?

​​She has a type! Before marrying Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry dated a number of musicians. She has had high-profile relationships with John Mayer, Travie McCoy, Diplo, and others.

Katy is currently engaged to Orlando, whom she adores. Before he got down on one knee on Valentine’s Day 2019, the A-list couple had been dating on and off for three years. When it came to proposing to the “Dark Horse” artist, the Pirates of the Caribbean star pulled out all the stops. “I thought we were going to see some art after dinner, but instead we pulled up to a helicopter,” Katy explained later that month in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. While pulling the ring out of his pocket, Orlando passed the “Roar” singer a heartfelt note to read during their romantic ride above the city. Despite the chaos caused by the large box becoming stuck in his pocket, he asked, and she said yes!

“When we landed, it was like James Bond, with everyone wearing an earpiece.” We then proceeded to the basement… and my whole family was there and all my friends. Katy gushed about the special day, “He did so well.” Katy revealed she was pregnant with her first child, a baby girl, in March 2020, and their relationship took another big step forward when she announced she was expecting in August 2020.

Orlando has a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with ex Miranda Kerr, and was overjoyed when his daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, was born. According to a source close to the couple, he and Katy are “enjoying every minute” of having a baby. “[Katy] hasn’t gotten much sleep and is exhausted, but she understands that it’s all part of the process.” “Her own mother, Mary, is assisting, and Orlando is extremely hands-on,” the source said at the time. Katy finally found her happily ever after a long and winding road. To see her entire dating history, keep scrolling.

During a Behind the Music special in 2012, Travie said, “She knew when I was f—ked up,” citing his struggle with drug addiction as the reason for their breakup. “I chose drugs over our relationship. I began to question my role in her life as things began to take off for her. I felt like I was a stepping ladder at times.”
