The marriage of actor Orlando Bloom and Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr of three years, has ended. In this ride down the path of splitsville, Kerr was seeing attending social events without her wedding ring – appearing to have a good time. Bloom and Kerr have one child together, 2-year-old Flynn. While Bloom’s mother fluttered down previous reports of trouble brewing in the marriage, pictures showed the story of a couple who stopped attending events together. Amid the rumors, additional truths came to light about Kerr’s diva-like attitude. It was this attitude that crumbled her contract renewal with David Jones and potentially her marriage.

Bloom, 36, was born in England and admired the arts of theater and television acting. He entered the realm of acting early on and at the young age of 20-years-old, he landed in the movie Wilde; a biopic on none other than Oscar Wilde. A year later, Bloom suffered a frightening fall where he nearly lost his ability to walk. With strict physical therapy and determination, he would go on to become one of the hottest young actors in Hollywood. From his starring roles in The Lord of the Rings, Black Hawk Down and the trilogy of The Pirates of the Caribbean – Bloom paved a way of success.
Kerr, 30, was born in Australia and the beautiful Aussie grew up as a tomboy; she raced motorbikes and horses against her younger brother on their grandmother’s farm. Around the same time Bloom was selected for his role in Wilde, Kerr began modeling for surfwear brands in and around Australia. She rose through the ranks of modeling with her beautifully, toned body and flawless features.
Capturing to mind the picture of angelic beauty, she was tapped by Victoria’s Secret to replace none other than Gisele Bündchen. In 2007, the Brit and Aussie connected over their shared Buddhist faith, and began a courtship that eventually lead Bloom to pop the question and marry his bride three years later. It is disheartening to see the once in love pair, ready to accept the road to splitsville, even as rumors spilled alluding to trouble amid the seemingly, happy couple.
Did Kerr’s Attitude Bring About Ruin?
Amicable separations and divorces are a staple of Hollywood. It seems no different for Bloom or Kerr as Kerr was spotted in LA for the Vogue Fashion Fund dinner. Missing from Kerr’s hand was the wedding band Bloom had shared with her on their wedding day. Naturally, the next question leads many to wonder what happened?
Certainly, Bloom has been busy with Broadway and working on set with The Hobbit trilogy. Does the separation of careers truly define a Hollywood marriage to seek an end when partners become friendly strangers? While surface deep, the stories always emphasize the amicable split, underlying trouble brews rumors and suggestions.
Kerr has been busy promoting her organic skincare line, Kora Organics and looking to avoid fallout with any additional contracts in place. Over the last few years, Kerr has developed a reputation of being “difficult,” arriving late to shoots and falling into a “diva” pattern with demands. Once the face of the David Jones brand, Kerr did not have her contract renewed, amid reports of her standoffish attitude and inability to show up on time. Last summer, it was Kerr’s own mother who departed Kora Organics, rumors exploded suggesting there was a dispute of creative differences with her daughter.
Then earlier this year another wave of trouble hit Kerr; Victoria’s Secret would not renew their contract with the once in demand model. Rumors hit the entertainment industry as anonymous sources reported Kerr was not kind to the other models and made life difficult when she arrived on set. In addition, it appears Kerr’s appearance did not sell well as some of the other top Angels. It seems Kerr is sparking negativity with those around her, was this potential poison the root cause of her marriage troubles?
It was Bloom’s agent who stepped forward to announce the amicable separation of the couple, with not-so-surprising news the couple had been living apart for a few months. Currently, there is no word if a pre-nuptial agreement was signed between the young couple. Kerr’s net worth is estimated at $20 million dollars between her modeling career and her organic business. Bloom has a net worth over $30 million dollars from his many projects and acting jobs.
The couple for now, are putting on a brave face for their son, friends, family and fans. Bloom and Kerr hit splitsville; rumors point out the vast difference or schedules, others point to Kerr’s attitude. Only these two individuals will know the truth. It is sad to see another young couple ending what seemed to be, a very happy union. What do you think attributed to the end of the marriage for Bloom and Kerr?
