Orlando Bloom Insists He And Erica Packer Are 'Just Great Mates'
The Hobbit actor has quashed rumours he has a new love interest...
Orlando Bloom has insisted he and Erica Packer are just 'great mates', despite snaps of the couple looking cosy on holiday in Ibiza together.
Bloom split from his wife Miranda Kerr last year, after which she was rumoured to be dating mutual friend James Packer, who's ex-wife Erica was then spotted with Orlando looking loved up.
"It probably looks odd but we are all mates, we have all known each other for a long time," the actor told the Daily Telegraph.
Asked if they're dating, Orlando responded: "No, I’ve known Erica for a long time, we are great mates. She is a great girl.”
While supermodel Kerr is in a similar position, having clarified her relationship status to the Sunday Times magazine recently, saying her and James are 'just friends'.
"I know the truth, I am single, and the people that are important to me know the truth, and that is all," she added.
Bloom went on to explain how his family are all very supportive of each other, despite the split.
"Family is important and we are so lucky because we get on so well. We are great co-parents to Flynn. We really support each other."
