Popular American singer Katy Perry, who is now engaged to American actor Orlando Bloom, has said that she contemplated suicide in 2017 when she broke up with him back then. The couple, however, got back together a few months later.

The singer was also depressed over the fact that her album 'Witness Fell' that released the same year was not successful. Speaking to an international news agency, Katy Perry stated, "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's 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. 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." She further added, "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."

After being diagnosed with clinical depression, she had mentioned in an earlier interview, "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 realise that everything related to my career isn't all of what life is, it's just a part of who I am." Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom started going out in 2016 and broke up in February 2017. They got back together later that year and announced their engagement on Valentine's Day in 2019. Orlando Bloom also revealed that the singer was pregnant with their baby girl in March this year.
