RIP: Orlando Bloom & Miranda Kerr

It's Friday which means another celebrity couple announces their break-up.  This week, it's Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr.  Their reps released this statement:

They have been amicably separated for the past few months.  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."

What the what?  I don't understand what happened.  Five years ago, I was purchasing spin shoes at a cycling store and I was sitting right next to Orlando Bloom as I tried them on and based on that thirty second interaction, I did not see this coming. 

It's hard for me to wrap my brain around why people get divorced only after three years of marriage.  Like, assuming there was a period of time they were happy in their marriage-- how long could they have been truly miserable and working on things together?  A year?  Six months?  Maybe celebrities just don't work on the same timeline as normal people.  Or maybe someone cheated.  I get the feeling that Orlando Bloom is the type of guy that has a lot of hobbies and kind of likes to do his own thing and his significant other just has to find a way to squeeze into his life.  And maybe that gets old real fast when you're a super model.  I feel like Miranda Kerr is the one that called this quits, because how do you leave someone as pretty as her?

Anyway, the person I really feel sorry for is Baby Flynn who is hands down my favorite celebrity baby.  Hopefully Suri will give him a call and give him some tips on how to get through this difficult time.
