Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have ended their relationship.

Reps for both stars confirmed the news in a joint statement to PEOPLE Magazine this week. “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” the statement read

The news came as a bit of a surprise because the pair were spotted together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday night. They were, however, sort of distant during that party, according to sources.

The relationship was never supposed to be serious, according to sources who spoke to PEOPLE. “When it first started, she was basically like ‘This will be fun for now," a source connected to Katy Perry told the magazine. A source connected to Orlando Bloom shared similar insight with PEOPLE. The source said that Bloom was happy, but "he was not in the mindset to settle down.”

The relationship lasted roughly a year.
