Actor Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr have announced they have split after three years of marriage and six years together.
The couple have been separated for months and are ready to move forward with a legal separation.
The couple’s spokesperson said in a 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.”
The statement continued, “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 British actor and the Australian model started dating in July 2007 before tying the knot secretly three years later.
Miranda, a former Victoria’s Secret Angel, gave birth to the couple’s son Flynn in January 2011.
The couple were last seen together publicly at the opening night of Bloom’s Broadway production of “Romeo And Juliet” on September 19.
Although they had already split at that time, Miranda praised Orlando’s performance to the November issue of Cosmopolitan.
Miranda Kerr stated, “When I saw Orlando on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet, I was blown away. For someone to be able to learn all that and hold the energy to do it every day, six days a week – I have so much respect for him. We don’t run lines though. We keep that very separate. That would be like me asking him to teach me how to catwalk.”
There were rumors of problems in the marriage in December 2012 after Miranda denied a report of a hook-up with model-loving actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Now all those sexy photos Miranda has posted make sense. She’s looking to find her a new man!
