In the days since, there’s been a lot of speculation about what caused the celebrity power couple to breakup, with tabloid magazines jumping to all sorts of conclusions. One website even ran photos of Orlando looking cosy with a Katy look-alike at a pre-Oscars party.

The 32-year-old set the record straight on Friday, tweeting:
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!????

Katy and Orlando’s breakup announcement pre-empted the speculation and public interest that was to come.
“Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” their reps told Us Weekly in a statement on February 28.
