Celebrity-hood is not only about being rich, famous and dodging the paparazzi; it’s also about ensuring that your dirty-laundry isn’t the talk of the town because well, the constant scrutiny by the media is something you can’t run or hide from.
And sometimes, the entire world is privy to some of the biggest sexcapades.

Bloom stayed at the Chiltern Firehouse hotel for a couple of days when he took notice of waitress and aspiring actress, Viviana Ross. Sparks flew instantly between them after which he invited her to the suite he was staying at (after her shift got over). Bloom later checked out of the hotel room while the hotel manager found Viviana in the room after which her contract was reportedly terminated.
According to a few reports, Orlando called her up to apologize for the mess after their one night of wild passion.
