Katy Perry flees Australia a day after getting a Coronavirus scare at her record label—she was pictured covering her face and stomach with a pillow.


Katy Perry has fled Australia after having a close shave with the Coronavirus. Two personnel at Universal Music building were reportedly discovered to have the virus, and as a result, all staff were instructed to quarantine themselves until Monday.

After the scare, the mother-to-be cancelled all her press interviews as an essential safety precaution and allegedly spent the whole day on lockdown at her Sydney lodge.

According to an anonymous celebrity photographer, the lockdown lasted up until her scheduled flight was out of the Sydney airport. However, Katy posted a picture that suggested otherwise—it remains unknown whether she took the photo herself or if she got the image from an Australian fan's page.

On Friday, she was pictured at the airport surrounded by her entourage and armed with a pillow, which she used to obscure the lower half of her face and her belly. 



The gorgeous songstress was dressed casually for the flight in a dark gray hoodie with matching track pants and Adidas sneakers. She hid her eyes with a classy shade.

The award-winning singer's marriage was previously scheduled to take place in Japan in June, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the plans were postponed.

It's been reported that she might be headed towards the United States to reunite with her fiance, Orlando Bloom, who is also the father of her child.


The famous musician flew into Sydney just after concluding a bushfire relief live performance in Vivid, Victoria. The production was done in appreciation of the heroic volunteer firefighters who have been battling wildfires over the last few months.

The mother-to-be revealed news of her pregnancy on March 5 when she flaunted her baby bump towards the end of the music video she shot for "Never Worn White." The child will reportedly be the first for her and the second for Bloom.


She has admitted that the conception came at the perfect moment for herself and Bloom. After the announcement, Katy's first appearance was in Australia.

Katy was pictured in a multi-coloured retro-themed dress at the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 final— and in a video from Twitter, she was captured screaming "I hope it's a girl." 


The award-winning singer's marriage was previously scheduled to take place in Japan in June, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the plans were postponed. The couple has decided to return to planning their wedding after the birth of their baby.
