What started out as a friendly joke quickly turned embarrassing for American Idol judge Katy Perry. With multiple media reports of a split between Kim Kardashian and comedian Pete Davidson, Perry ripping from them online just hours before news of their split broke, has fans raving about the singer’s seriously bad timing, with some claiming the post caused the breakup.
It’s an intricate web of clumsiness, but here’s what you need to know…
Perry winces at the thought of Pete Davidson as her lover
on August 4, 2022, Perry uploaded a TikTok video that quickly went viral when she shared her results while playing MASH, a filter in the app designed to predict the contestant’s future across four categories: the house you will own, the car you will drive, the number of children you will have will have, and your future lover.
When the first two predictions popped up for her – living in a castle and driving a Tesla – Perry smiled and was pleased with her results. But the next two predictions turned that smile on its head.
At first the filter told her she would have six children, causing Perry’s eyes to go wide with shock; She currently has a daughter with her fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom. A second later, the game predicted her future lover, with an image of Pete Davidson popping up. Perry immediately went from shock at the number of children to full horror at Davidson.
Realizing she had just dissed Kardashian’s boyfriend with her reaction, Perry wrote, “No offense @KimKardashian.” And since Bloom has been connecting with Davidson on a film set in Australia lately, she added: “( and Orlando?)”.
Fans make fun of Katy for her really bad timing
The day after Perry posted her TikTok video, E! messages reported that Kardashian and Davidson had split nine months after first publicly confirming their relationship. The news was according to “sources close to the couple,” but several other outlets are now also reporting that they have confirmed the split with their sources.
Fans have taken to social media in droves, noting Perry’s “terrible timing” and wondering if she was somehow involved or aware of the troubles in paradise for the couple. One Twitter user wrote: “Somehow I feel like @katyperry caused this.”
Fans also flooded Perry’s TikTok post with comments, with many writing, “That hasn’t aged well.
Some fans claimed Perry’s ribs may have played a role in the split.
“KIM & PETE ONLY HAVE BROKE UP KATY TODAY THEY DON’T HAVE THAT,” one wrote, adding crying emojis.
Someone commented, “This is the TikTok that broke Kim and Pete apart.”
And another said: “Day later and the news comes out that Pete and Kim have split up? Can’t be a coincidence.”
Others said they agreed with Perry’s hilarious reaction to Davidson and that it was all just fun and games, including one fan who wrote, “I mean I would have reacted the same way if I was engaged to Orlando Bloom…sorry Pete.”
Perry has not commented on the impact of her video, which had nearly 6 million views at the time of publication. And neither Kardashian nor Davidson have commented on the post or their relationship.
