Love Blooms for Orlando?

Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom may soon “step out” with a new flame.

Last week the British actor confirmed that he has separated from his wife Miranda Kerr after three years of marriage. Speculation is now surfacing that Orlando might have feelings for his co-star Condola Rashad, who he is starring alongside in a New York theater production of Romeo and Juliet.

“The rumor is they have become incredibly close off-stage,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “Orlando might step out with Condola soon.”

Since Orlando and Miranda announced that they are no longer together, rumors have been rife about when they parted ways. Some insiders claim the actor and Australian model haven’t been in a committed relationship for some time.

“Orlando and Miranda have basically been living separate lives,” a source revealed.

There has been speculation surrounding their marriage since the end of last year, with Miranda linked to Leonardo DiCaprio after the pair were seen out together in New York twice last November.

Orlando has spent most of the year filming in New Zealand and South Africa, while Miranda has been living in New York and was spotted without her wedding ring.

Despite revealing plans to formally separate, Orlando and Miranda are determined to remain on good terms for the sake of their two-year-old son Flynn.

The pair were spotted strolling arm-in-arm in New York City over the weekend, taking Flynn out to lunch.

Orlando has insisted there is no animosity, revealing he still considers Miranda “family”.

“It’s all good,” he said. “Life’s a mystery. Things don’t always work out the way you want, but it’s all good.”

Orlando and Miranda started dating in 2007 and became engaged in June 2010, before getting married the following month.
