I know we’ve talked before about what a friendly divorce Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have, but this latest quote from Miranda is making that look a little less certain. She talked to The Sunday Times about what parenting their son is like after the split. Apparently Miranda has a nanny follow Orlando around whenever he takes care of Flynn. But it’s not because she doesn’t trust him or anything, you guys! In fact, it’s just the opposite.
“The nanny is with him [Flynn] all the time when he is with Orlando; don’t get me wrong, he’s a great dad, it’s just me being a protective mother and wanting to make sure all his needs are met.”
Miranda adds that it also puts “less pressure” on Orlando. I haven’t had my passive-aggressive comment detector checked in a while (gotta remember to make an appointment for that), but my alarms are definitely going off right now. In my experience, when you have to preface something with “don’t get me wrong,” especially when you’re a celebrity, people are going to get you wrong. Or get you right, because usually whatever comes after “don’t get me wrong” is bullshit.
What if she doesn’t stop at the nanny? Perhaps Miranda’s next interview will feature her explaining, “Don’t get me wrong, of course I trust Orlando. That’s why I had that computer chip implanted beneath his skin to monitor where he is at all times. It puts less pressure on him.” Or maybe “Don’t get me wrong, that ankle monitoring bracelet is for Orlando’s own good. It keeps him from leaving the house, and who wants to do that, anyway?”
It wouldn’t be an Orlando/Miranda post if I didn’t mention that whole Justin Bieber debacle. You know, the one where Miranda allegedly hooked up with Bieber, which led Orlando to try to introduce his fist to Bieber’s face a couple of weeks ago. I must ask Miranda, first of all, what is wrong with you?! And second of all, what is wrong with you?! And third of all, where was Bieber’s nanny that day?
