Meanwhile, the singer's fiancé, Orlando Bloom, squashed split rumors this week while opening up about his "deeply loving" and "committed relationship" to the star on the On Purpose with Jay Shetty podcast.

"I think I'm constantly learning to let go," he shared. "Because anything that I try to hold onto, whether it's good or bad, doesn't serve me. Not in the relationship, and it doesn't really serve either of us."

"Because you've chosen that person, you are on a journey with that person. You are gonna learn this lesson. And if you've chosen that person, then that's the person you're gonna learn that lesson with. I mean, that's the opportunity, right?"
