Is John Mayer hooking up with Allison Williams behind Katy Perry’s back?

Allison Williams

I harbor mixed feelings about this story. John Mayer and Katy Perry have been dating for at least six months, and supposedly, they have progressed into a very serious relationship. I mean, John’s probably cheating on her in some shape or form, but he spent Christmas with her family, and he’s reportedly looking for an engagement ring for Katy. So it is what it is, whatever it is.

According to a report from Mail Online, John may be trying to get cozy with Allison Williams (from HBO’s “Girls”). Now Allison supposedly has a boyfriend, and they’re apparently all couple-datey with Katy and John, but the details of this story are a bit sketchy. Observe:

John Mayer

Musician John Mayer has been spotted with Girls beauty Allison Williams – just days after partying with girlfriend Katy Perry at the White House.

The singer, 35, and the willowy brunette, 25, who is dating Mayer’s good friend Ricky Van Veen, surprised onlookers as they turned up at an intimate event for fashion store American Two Shot at Manhattan’s trendy Jane Hotel on Friday night.

The couple are longtime pals and enjoyed dinner with their respective partners in New York last month.

An onlooker told MailOnline: “Allison and John walked in together and separated to talk to respective friends. They then made their way back to each other, and John had his arm around Allison’s waist. They were talked together for a bit before leaving.”

The onlooker said Allison, who stars as Marnie in Lena Dunham’s HBO hit, had her hair in “polished waves,” and was wearing a beige suede jacket – while John had donned an odd “beige dressing gown-style coat.”

The pair left the event – where there was red velvet cake and bacon vanilla sponge cake to celebrate the store’s anniversary – and headed to dinner at West Village Mexican hotspot El Toro Blanco.

There, another onlooker told MailOnline: “They were with another guy, but they seemed to be in an intense conversation the entire night and were sitting across from each other at the booth-style table. They were sitting down when we got there for our 10pm reservation, and they stayed until around 11:30pm. They stayed pretty the late until the restaurant was clearing out.”

Here’s what throws me off: Why did John have his arm around Allison’s waist if he’s not trying to subtly work a douche move on her? Even if they were hanging out with some other dude too, it still seems a bit weird. It’s almost like John figures since he’s friends with this Allison chick and her boyfriend, no one would think he’s really trying to get with her, and thus, he’s got a perfect excuse to put his arm around her and explain it away as nothing if anyone asks. Does that make sense? I think I just hurt my brain trying to get into John Mayer’s douchehead.

    He’s so gross. I’m surprised he and Katy are still together but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s putting the moves on other women.

  2. gee says:

    She looks really pretty in the blue dress. But as a new face, she should really stay away from the shadiness (that is being associated in any way with cheating with John Mayer) or it’s going to damage her reputation.

  3. Faye says:

    Seriously, *what* is it with this guy? He looks disgusting and his reputation is awful; how does he bag all these celebs?

  4. allons-y alonso says:

    ‘John Mayer seems like an ok guy’, said no one ever.

  5. Agnes says:

    He’s a gross douche. I don’t know what all these women are thinking, seriously.

  6. renata says:

    How in the world does he get all these girls? It’s completely mystifying to me. He’s talented, but not good looking at all. Whenever I see pictures of him I think if I were standing next to him he’d probably smell really bad.

    I remember reading an article somewhere about a year ago that speculated he had a johnson the size of mainland China. I guess that must be it, but still! Think of what you”d have to look at to get to it! Yeeeccccchhh!

  7. marie says:

    he is so gross, don’t understand why anyone would get with him..

  8. good_as_gold says:

    There doesn’t seem any solid evidence to claims of cheating. I mean, what if the “other guy” that they were with was her actual boyfriend.

    Still, it’s John we are talking about here…

  9. Bad Irene says:

    All I got from this story is that there was BACON VANILLA SPONGE CAKE, why am I only finding out about this now? I feel my parents and my college education have failed me.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I think he tries to “get cozy” with anyone with boobs. He’s so gross. Katy Perry has some strange taste in men.

    Allison is very pretty, and her dad is awesome. Hopefully she stays away from JM.

  11. Dirtnap says:

    Well, let’s see now … Jen was John’s ticket to the Oscars, and Katy was John’s ticket to the inaguration. Guess he’ll be d*cking Sir Richard Branson’s daughter soon; I hear her dad is working on civilian space travel. I’m
    sure John would love to fly to the moon for free.

  12. bea says:

    Looks like he just got done selling turkey legs at the Renaissance Fair!

  13. Gene Parmesan says:

    She is soo pretty and looks just like her dad!

  14. I love her on Girls and she is so beautiful. It would make me really sad if this story turned out to be true.

  15. Esmom says:

    One word: Uptrade. Katy might be a bigger name but I see this Allison as having more “cool cred” in his eyes.

    I don’t watch her show but every time I see a photo of her I think it’s Amanda Peet.

    I’m sometimes perplexed by my own gender. HOW can women find guys like John Mayer, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, and Chris ‘Breezy’ even remotely attractive??? These guys are all self-aggrandizing, rude, arrogant slime buckets…I no longer wish to call any of them “douches” as actual douche bags serve a useful purpose. These ugly tools make me want to dry heave — I’ll take a real man like Dong Draper or FineAssbender any day over those losers, thankyouverymcuh!

  17. yolo says:

    I know everyone hates John the douche bag, but to me, this seems like a non-story. They are friends. They are allowed to have convos and dinners. They aren’t strangers, she’s dating his bff. I have male friends that I hang with innocently, that have pulled me in closer for a chat at events or parties before…??? No?? Just me?? It just seems too in your face if they’re messing around. I DO wanna know more about that cake tho! Sweet J, that sounds delish!!

    ruh-roh, maybe there *is* trouble in paradise!

    While John was out with Marnie/Allison (love her on Girls, but please don’t get involved with this douche), Katy was getting cozy with Dom Howard (Muse drummer) in LA:

  19. Really? says:

    Aaaugghh!! Her hair!! Crazy beautiful, hurts my eyes!!

  20. annabelle says:

    Um Bedhead, if you successfully got into John Mayer’s *anything* you might want to look into some strong antibiotics.

  21. Miss Choctaw says:

    I think this girl is so plain and boring. If her dad wasn’t crooked jaw Brian Williams – she would not have job.

  22. RosettaStoned says:

    A commenter on dlisted the other night (late night, think it was yesterday) said she had been at an after-after party and saw KP there sans JM. The commenter said KP was being very obnoxious and attention-seeking (surprise) and seemed to be ‘on the prowl’. IF this is true, it seems to me like they have ‘an understanding’ or some type of open relationship. I’m inclined to believe this based on the stories of them appearing affectionate with separate people. So take from it what you will, just found that interesting!

  23. Izzy says:

    Ugh. He is just gross. If she is hooking up with him, I hope she hauls butt to the local clinic to get tested for STDs. Blech. Now I need brain bleach. Please pass the bottle…
