John Mayer, 35, and Katy Perry, 28, have called it quits…. again.
Several sources tell US Weekly, “It’s sad,” but the sources think the breakup might not be permanent. “It’s not over until it’s over. You have to see how things play out. She’s leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work.”
Indeed, Perry has been busy recording her third studio album in Los Angeles, while Mayer — on the mend following serious vocal problems and throat surgery last year — is prepping for upcoming tour dates and a live Google Hangout chat this Thursday, March 21.
Following their September 2012 reconciliation, the twosome seemed to ramp up their relationship: The “Waiting on the World to Change” troubadour visited Perry’s Santa Barbara hometown in November, they attended high-profile events together as a couple, and Mayer, famous for his string of A-list exes, gushed about Perry in a January 60 Minutes interview. “I’m very happy in all aspects of my life,” said Mayer, who had messy splits with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt, to name a few.
Perry, who finalized her divorce from Russell Brand in February 2012, was tweeting happily about her man as recently as March 2. “My boyfriend is taking me to a kitten shelter in his truck,” she wrote to her nearly 34 million followers. “I can’t think of a more perfect Saturday.” But on Monday, March 18, she suggested she’s been dealing with turmoil. “ATTENTION: Mercury is OUT of retrograde today. Thank GOD,” Perry wrote.
These two, these two. What are we going to do with them?
First thing that came to my mind was what I said last week. Katy Perry signed a $2 million book deal, and reportedly was going to talk about not only her ex-husband Russell Brand, but her then-boyfriend John Mayer as well. I couldn’t believe she’d include John in her book – who is he…. in the big picture… other than her boyfriend? He ain’t never going to marry you Katy – move on!
