Orlando Bloom dates Jessica Simpson, crashes



Tbdorlandobloom101507 This last week has been oh-so-rough on Orlando Bloom. First paparazzi caught him strolling with Australian model Miranda Kerr (“We actually ran into each other by coincidence and then someone took a photo, turning a molehill into a mountain,” she says), then he was spotted with MIA actress Jessica Simpson by Ok! magazine.

But all that came to a screeching halt at 2:15 Friday morning when Bloom crashed a friend’s Toyota Matrix into a parked Porsche Cayenne, TMZ reports.

The site says an LAPD source tells them a car cut Bloom off, leading to the minor crash, and that Orlando initially got out of the car and tried to walk away before the busy lenses following him convinced him to attend to two female passengers in the Matrix, one who was injured and bleeding. That woman turned out to be celebrity stylist Cher Coulter, who suffered a cut on the head and a neck injury.

“No alcohol was involved, and he wasn’t speeding,” the LAPD’s Ana Aguirre said. That’s why they’re called accidents.
