Katy Perry has jumped to defense in the midst of Ellen Degeneres's media firestorm - but not everyone is a fan of her words of support ...

The current Ellen DeGeneres controversy is hard to miss.

But on celebrity has jumped to the presenter's defense ...

She came on the scene in 2008 with the explosive (and controversial) hit, I Kissed A Girl. 

She's one of the most successful singers of our time.

Her 2015 Super Bowl half time show is thought to be the most-watched musical event ever.

Katy has had an unbelievable number of hit singles.

Even those totally out of touch with pop music could probably sing along to a few of her killer choruses.

But it took them a while to get to where they are now.

It wasn't until May of 2016 that Katy confirmed the two were officially dating.

She shared this snap of the pair lying down on some steps at the Cannes Film Festival. But, before this, their relationship was kept very hush-hush.

The couple have had some amazingly cute moments together.

They are definitely couple goals!

And, after a couple of relationship hiccups, they finally confirmed that they were officially together in April 2018.

That same month, Katy shared this amazing (yet slightly bizarre) picture of the couple meeting the Pope.

And last Valentine's Day, Orlando shared this cryptic message.

He didn't tag anyone in particular, but fans quickly suspected they knew exactly what it meant.

And Katy confirmed everyone's suspicions...

She shared this snap of the corner of the pair's faces, alongside multiple heart-shaped balloons and a truly stunning pink engagement ring... on Valentine's Day in 2019. Orlando shared the same picture, with the simple captions, "Lifetimes."

People were thrilled to hear the news...

And one die-hard fan pointed out that exactly one year ago, Katy had caught the bouquet at her own brother's wedding.

The couple are yet to tie the knot...

But, as of a few months ago, they have something much more exciting to look forward to.

The couple are expecting their first child together!

And, in typical Katy Perry fashion, she revealed the exciting news in a rather unconventional way...

Through her new music video.

I know, it doesn't get any more A-list than that, does it?

Katy's new song, "Never Worn White" debuted earlier this year...

And the song, which will be a part of her fifth upcoming album, hints massively that the singer will be walking down the aisle very soon. The lyrics sing: "Cause I've never worn white. But I wanna get it right. Yeah, I really wanna try with you. No, I've never worn white. But I'm standin' here tonight. Cause I really wanna say 'I do'"

As the video draws to a close...

The singer can be seen clasping her hands around her stomach, which hadn't seemed any bigger throughout the full sequence.

And then, there we have it.

She suddenly stands to a side and reveals her small bump, which she cradles delicately.

And, shortly after the debut, Katy shared a clip of the video on her Instagram, with the cryptic caption:

"Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam-packed summer..."

She then addressed her pregnancy in an Instagram Live stream...

"I'm excited," she said, "We're excited and happy and it's probably the longest secret I've ever had to keep."

We are utterly thrilled for the couple's happy news...

And we're sure that they are starting to prepare for the arrival of their little girl.

Katy has been keeping her fans updated throughout her pregnancy...

And it seems that she has been staying healthy and well throughout the lockdown period.

And we must say...

Katy is rocking the pregnant look.

But this week, she's been hitting headlines for quite a different reason ...

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll have heard about Ellen DeGeneres' latest issues.

Tons of previous show staffers have come forward with claims of mistreatment and even more serious problems.

And even former guests have spoken out.

Ellen's loveable media persona is falling apart before our very eyes.

But one star who's leaped to Ellen's defense?

Katy Perry - with a couple of controversial tweets.

She claimed Ellen had always been pleasant to her.

But fans were not happy about this support from Katy.

Some pointed this out.

The way Katy Perry gets treated is probably not the norm.

It's not really about how Ellen treats celebrities ...

But how she treats those who work for her.

People are not impressed.

And to be honest, we can see why.

Some branded it disrespectful.

And it's hard to deny her timing was poor.

There was one overring reponse.
