The 'Chained to the Rhythm' hitmaker and the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star confirmed they had called time on their romance on Wednesday (01.03.17), and the 32-year-old pop beauty has taken to social media to state that she will remain friends with her ex and that no one is ''a victim or a villain'' as they broke up amicably.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday (02.03.17), she wrote: ''HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017 U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all! (sic)''
It was recently reported that the former couple's romance was ''never really supposed to be serious'' and was always about having ''fun'' rather than settling down.
A source said recently:''It was never really supposed to be serious between them. When it first started, she was basically like, 'This will be fun for now.'''
Whilst an insider close to Orlando added: ''[He was] happy and content [but] was not in the mindset to settle down.''
And the pair are said to have split up after the relationship because ''more and more work''.
The source shared: ''It just became more and more work to make it work. Because this wasn't something permanent, it just became time to take a break.''
And another insider added: ''There was nothing dramatic or over the top. Katy's going through a lot of changes for her new music - both physically and emotionally - and this was a part of that.''
Katy and Orlando announced their split in a joint statement where they revealed they would be ''taking [a] respectful, loving space at this time''.
They said: ''Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.''
It's time for a riot grrrl revolution.
