Singer Katy Perry recalls contemplating suicide following her breakup with Orlando Bloom in 2017

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are once again very tightly knit like a couple. Perry and Bloom often appear on each other's social media accounts. Bloom also recently revealed that he is expecting his first child with Katy Perry very soon. In a recent interview, Katy Perry revealed that her relationship with Orlando Bloom wasn't always smooth sailing. Perry recalled having a hard time after her breakup with Bloom in 2017. The singer also admitted to having suicidal thoughts at that time.
 
Speaking to The Sun, Perry said, "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."
 
Katy Perry is finally in a much better place in regards to her mental health now. The singer further said, "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.”
 
In a separate interview, Perry previously said that she went into depression after her last album release. She said, "I became very insecure and had to go on a journey, both emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically to understand why I relied so much on validation. I had to realize that everything related to my career isn't all of what life is, it's just a part of who I am."
