After the total and utter carnage that was celebrity relationships in 2015 (opens in new tab), 2016 is already delivering some pretty unexpected pairings. January alone has gifted the world Harry Styles + Kendall Jenner (opens in new tab)—not to mention Liam + Miley 2.0 (opens in new tab)—and now it appears as though Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are an item. Their love is blooming, if you will. (Sorry. Just, so sorry.)

Orlando and Katy were first seen being "extremely flirty (opens in new tab)" at Harvey Weinstein's 2016 Golden Globes after party (which, fun fact, Marie Claire (opens in new tab)co-hosts (opens in new tab)), and were most recently spotted seeing The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey together on January 21.

The play's star, James Lecesne, posted a photo of the duo on Instagram, so according to the "pics or it did't happen" rule of thumb, it totally happened.
