According to sources close to the former couple, the real reason behind the split was Katy’s desire to get hitched and have kids. Orlando, who is already a father to 6-year-old Flynn, reportedly didn’t feel the same leaving Katy to question their future together.

The pair were pictured looking happy together at the Oscars just one day before this shock announcement was released by a spokesperson for the stars…

Could Katy’s marriage dreams have been the reason?

“Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

Sources say Orlando and Katy simply found themselves “on different pages” according to the Mirror.

The source said, “Katy and Orlando had a great time together. It was a great healing process for Orlando following his divorce from Miranda. But Katy and Orlando discovered they were on different pages. Katy wants children and to get married, while Orlando has been there and done that. At 32, Katy doesn’t want to waste any more time. It became a strain.”
