The Word: Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr split up

2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - Runway

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are ending their two-year marriage, according to his representative.

“In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months,” Orlando’s rep told E! Online. “After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation.”

“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star and the Victoria’s Secret model are the parents of a two-year-old son, Flynn.

You may now take a moment to process your beautiful-celebrity-breakup-induced ennui (even they can’t make it?) or schadenfreude (Ha! Even they can’t  make it!) or hubris (Miranda Kerr is single! Bring me my beard comb!), as the case may be.

We now return to your regularly scheduled Miley Cyrus.

Earlier this year Victoria’s Secret refuted rumors that it planned to demote Kerr from angel to regular underwear model.

Ed Razek, chief marketing officer at Victoria’s Secret, said Kerr has already been invited to walk in the 2013 Angel show.

“We have no plans to stop working with her,” he said.

Razek also dismissed rumors of Kerr’s diva behavior.
