Katy Perry reveals she considered suicide following split from now-fiancé Orlando Bloom and album’s poor salesJune 29, 2020
Katy Perry has revealed that she considered suicide after splitting from her actor fiancé Orlando Bloom back in 2017.
The singer, who is now engaged and expecting a baby with Orlando, revealed she suffered a breakdown when her album Witness flopped in the charts and her romance with the actor came to an end.
Despite the couple rekindling things years later and Orlando popping the question to the 35 year old pop star, Katy recalled the difficult time in her life as the couple prepare to welcome a daughter together.

In a new interview with SiriusXM CBC, Katy explained: “My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic.
“I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be.
"And then I was excited about flying high off the next record. But the validation did not make me high, and so I just crashed.”

Katy credited her faith for getting her through the heartbreaking time in her life, explaining: “It was so important for me to be broken so that I could find my wholeness in a whole different way.
“And be more dimensional than just living my life like a thirsty pop star all the time.
"Gratitude is probably the thing that saved my life, because if I did not find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped.

“But I found the ways to be grateful. If it gets really, really hard I walk around and say, ‘I am grateful, I am grateful!’; even though I am in a sh***y mood.”
Katy added that she is in a much better place going forward as she prepares to become a first-time mother.
She said: “Hope has always been an option for me, because of my relationship with God and something that is bigger than me.

“Of course if I am the one controlling my destiny I am going to be the one driving it into the ground.
“My hope is that something bigger than me created me for a purpose and created me for a reason, and that I’m not disposable, and that every person that’s been created has a purpose.”
