After breaking up with Justin, the “Come & Get It” singer has been in desperate need of a pick-me-up, and it sounds like she’s found just the guy to give her one. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Orlando Bloom has come along with a special, intimate way to support the brokenhearted Selena. Find out what it is.
Selena Gomez, 21, has been leaning on Orlando Bloom, 37, during this tumultuous time in her life, but she isn’t just attracted to his good looks. Actually, Orlando has found an emotional, profound way to get Selena back on her feet after splitting with Justin Bieber yet again, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Orlando Bloom: How He’s Supporting Selena Gomez
Here’s his secret: he’s been explaining the benefits of Buddhism to the “Come & Get It” singer!
“Orlando has been really supportive of Selena and has even invited her to chant with him at a Buddhist meeting. He says chanting helps people turn poison into medicine and it doesn’t matter what religion you practice, anyone can benefit from chanting,” a friend of Orlando’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Orlando is a longtime member of Soka Gakki International, an organization which practices a type of Buddhism called Nichiren Daishonin.
“He chants ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ and explained to Selena how Nichiren Buddhism has been so inspirational in his life, and how it helped him deal with his divorce from Miranda [Kerr],” says the insider. “He’s a good friend for someone like Selena.”
Orlando may just be the perfect friend now, but perhaps he could turn into the perfect boyfriend down the road?
Selena & Orlando: Cozy Up At Concert
Selena and Orlando were last spotted together at Chelsea Handler‘s comedy show on April 26 in Los Angeles. The two chatted together outside the concert venue while Orlando smoked a cigarette, and another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “Selena actually looked really happy.”
Back in 2012, Justin and Orlando’s wife Miranda Kerr were rumored to have hooked up after the famous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York City, so clearly Orlando and Selena may have a bond that goes much deeper than you’d think.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, should Selena think about dating more uplifting people like Orlando? Do YOU think they make a cute couple?
