Katy Perry defends Orlando Bloom amid cheating rumours

Los Angeles: Singer Katy Perry has defended her partner Orlando Bloom after his photographs featuring him getting cosy with Selena Gomez surfaced online. Perry, who has been dating Bloom for several months, took to Twitter to clear the air and to defend her boyfriend. "Instead of giving energy and eyeballs to dumb conspiracy check out how cool this is," Perry wrote alongside a link to a story about Orlando's recent charitable work with UNICEF. Hours after she posted her tweet, Gomez also retweeted it. Perry's response comes days after the very cosy-looking pictures of her boyfriend and Gomez in Las Vegas surfaced. In a string of images from their night out, the stars looked totally enamoured with each other as they sat apart from their friends.
