Katy Perry’s Sobering Decision: Why Orlando Bloom Was A Major Wake Up Call

‘She would get depressed and anesthetize herself.’

Katy Perry is going through more changes than just her cropped locks. The singer, who recently revealed that she’s newly sober, has been in therapy to work out issues with her fundamentalist Christian family and her romances — and sources say she’s finally confronting her demons.

“When Katy broke from her roots to be in pop music, she became a big partier,” an insider says. “She didn’t think she had a problem, but after a breakup she would get depressed and anesthetize herself.” Her February split from Orlando Bloom was the final wake-up call. “She realized how much baggage she’s been carrying,” says the source, “and that she had to get sober to unload it for good.”
