Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have decided it’s time for a break after dating for over a year.

Reps for the 32-year-old singer and 40-year-old actor confirmed to People magazine Tuesday night that the rumors they were no longer together were accurate, saying they were never focused on being together forever. (RELATED: Katy Perry Promises To ‘Vote Naked’ To Help Get Hillary Elected)

“It was never really supposed to be serious between them,” a source close to Perry told the magazine. “When it first started, she was basically like ‘This will be fun for now.'”

Recently, the relationship however, “just became more and more work to make it work,” added the source. “Because this wasn’t something permanent, it just became time to take a break.”

A source close to the actor said while he was “happy and content” spending time with Perry, he was never “in the mindset to settle down.” Adding, “it wasn’t as serious as everyone was making it out to be.”

The two starting seeing each other last January. Sources told the magazine back in August, that “[Bloom] would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids.”
