Katy, who is expecting her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom, made this heartbreaking revelation. She also revealed how she overcame these thoughts and got back on her feet eventually.
Speaking with radio station SiriusXM CBC, she said, "My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic. I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be."
After elaborating a bit further on how she felt during her low time, she added, "'Gratitude is probably the thing that saved my life, because if I did not find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped." Speaking about how she copes up with bad days, she added, "But I found the ways to be grateful. If it gets really, really hard I walk around and say, "I am grateful, I am grateful!"; even though I am in a sh***y mood."
