If there’s one thing any couple hate, it’s when one member lives far away from the other.

And that is the reality for Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry.

Katy has spoken to Women’s Wear Daily saying ‘’My boyfriend lives in Malibu and getting used to that [drive] was like, ‘Are you kidding me? What kind of life is this?'”

Perry lives in Santa Barbara, a 150km trip from LA, but Bloom lives in Malibu, a 53km trip from LA.

With him living half way to her home, it appears Perry just can’t do the drive and just go home, saying ‘’here’s no pop-over and I never really got used to Malibu ‘cause it’s halfway to Santa Barbara, so I’m always just going to Santa Barbara then. I get the whole coming to L.A. and living by the beach thing. But it’s really like, it’s so far, nobody [who lives in town] is going to come see you.”

However, the couple have struck a balance, with Perry revealing Bloom has visited her before.


“I still spend a lot of time there because I grew up there. I grew up in the poorest part of Santa Barbara… Actually my boyfriend didn’t even believe me and I was like, ‘I’m going to drive you by my house’ and you can Google Earth it. I basically had a crazy church-filled, God squad upbringing. I lived on food stamps and food bank in Santa Barbara, which is like a crazy juxtaposition to live in beauty and still have a bit of a struggle, but that’s just because of the nature of the church.”

The distance isn’t hurting them too much, however, with a source telling E! News that the lovebirds are already discussing children, saying ‘’They are in love and happier than ever. [Orlando] would like to get engaged to [Katy] before the year is up.”

Our insider also told us, “[Marriage and children] is something Katy has always wanted when she met the man she was ready to settle down with.”
