Since being linked for the first time at a Golden Globes after-party, where onlookers said they were cozy and flirty, the pair has been seen out and about a number of times, including at a celebrity-packed dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel this week.

But sources say Perry and Bloom were particularly friendly with one another throughout the evening.

"Orlando and Katy had that new-relationship glow about them," one person said. "They were cuddling and flirting with each other all night."

And the pair were also seen together last weekend, smiling backstage at a showing of The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, a play running in Los Angeles.

Still, before these two can be named Hollywood's new "it" couple, it's important to take into account how serious — or not — their relationship really is. According to sources close to Perry, she's in it just to have some short-term fun.

"She’s having fun with Orlando," an insider told Us Weekly. "I don’t think she’s seeing this as long-term yet. It’s a fun hookup thing right now."

Perry and Bloom were first linked when witnesses saw them looking intimate at a party following the Golden Globes.

"He would lean in to whisper into her ear and touch the small of her back as they chatted," an onlooker said at the time. And at Harvey Weinstein's bash following the awards, sources said Perry challenged Bloom to a dance-off.

"Katy literally dropped to the floor and was waving her booty around, beckoning Orlando," one insider said.
