We could all use a big bear hug right about now. Orlando Bloom is showering Katy Perry with ‘love and affection,’ HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned, after Hillary Clinton’s devastating election loss. Read on to see how he’s lifting her spirits.
If you thought our country was divided, try spending a few hours with Katy Perry‘s, 32, family. The pop star revealed on Election Day that her parents voted for Donald Trump, and she’s absolutely heartbroken by the final results. Luckily, she’s got Orlando Bloom, 39, by her side to ease the pain. “He’s been encouraging her to stay super positive and to keep her spirits up,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He knows how devastated she is over Trump’s win, and is doing his best to be a pillar of strength for her and to keep showering her with love and affection.”
Sensing that our nation was in trouble, Katy made one final plea to voters to keep their hopes up. The “Rise” singer appeared at Javits Center in NYC (home to Hillary’s election night party) to pump up the crowd and expose a shocking confession. Katy admitted that her parents voted for the Republican nominee, which goes against everything she stands for. She soon lightened the mood by saying that Thanksgiving dinner with her folks could get a little awkward.
“Orlando is convinced that Katy will one day get even more involved with politics,” the source continues. “He knows she’s a born leader.” And we couldn’t agree more! Upon hearing of Donald’s gut-wrenching victory, the raven-haired beauty blacked out her entirely Twitter page as a sign of protest. Katy couldn’t help but vent, and posted multiple Twitter statuses, including, “We will never be silenced,” and, “the revolution is coming.” If only all of us had a hot guy like Orlando to be our shoulder to cry on.
HollywoodLifers, how sweet is it that Orlando is comforting Katy?
