Katy Perry & John Mayer broke up for the 3rd time, she dumped him

John Mayer

Here’s a photo of John Mayer attempting to go unnoticed as he left his NYC hotel yesterday. He’s doing the Bieber walk and has the shades on, so I can’t get a grasp on his mood besides the usual “douche” vibe. Maybe I should be nice — a new report from E! says Katy Perry dumped John a few days ago. Is the greatest love affair of our age over all over again?

Not that we didn’t see this coming. They’ve already broken up a few times — most recently last March before going for a third round in June. Kaiser, CB, and I had a little in-house bet on how long they would last before ditching each other again. We’re all pretty sure John wanted to end this thing a long time ago. They were promoting their joint single with coupley Vanity Fair portraits, but live interviews revealed that John looked super uncomfortable when Katy touched him in public. Then she started playing the “engagement” ring game again. I bet John started treating Katy like crap until she dumped him. I hate it when guys do that:

Katy Perry and John Mayer have called it quits.

A source close to the pair exclusively tells E! News that Perry broke up with Mayer within the last few days.

No other details about what prompted the “Dark Horse” singer’s decision were forthcoming, but Mayer was noticeably absent from Perry’s side on her recent trip to London and Milan. She returned home to Los Angeles on Friday.

Despite some early ups and down, the musical pair fast became one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, sweetly gushing about each other in interviews and collaborating on the song “Who You Love,” off of Mayer’s latest album, Paradise Valley.

The duo have been the center of engagement rumors for quite some time now, with the most recent round of are-they-or-aren’t-they being sparked by the huge diamond ring Perry was wearing at the Elle Style Awards last week in London.

Perhaps the glittering accessory was just for style after all.

A source told E! News in November, however, that the next step seemed “inevitable,” and that all of their nearest and dearest were really rooting for them to stay together. “They are so perfect together,” the insider added.

The Prism artist once called Mayer a “genius” and told E! News, “I’ve been a fan of John’s for years before I got to actually kiss him.”

About their musical collaboration, she added, “I’ve been such a fan, I think he’s so incredibly talented and gifted and a genius songwriter. So to be a part of anything he was doing was just natural.”

The two first went public with their off-and-on romance in summer 2012. They split briefly, reconciled, called things off again last March, but then seemed to be going strong once again.

[From E! Online]

They are so perfect together” *sniff* Is it possible for John to be perfect with anyone? He’s a lone wolf. The guy is happy enough to get with a woman initially, but he always gets the itch and ends up looking trapped. I hope this story is true and Katy gives some good dish for her next Vogue cover. She trashed Russell Brand that way, and you know John deserves the same game.

CB mentioned that John was probably dying to give his version of events to the paps yesterday. We should applaud him for his self-restraint — as hilarious as it would have been for him to pull that stunt again.

    I’m heartbroken. I thought these two were solid,eyeroll.

  2. Nerd Alert says:

    LOL “he’s a genius songwriter…” Oh yeah, Katy. Compared to you, everyone is a genius songwriter.

  3. Neffie says:

    HA if i were these female celebrities or any female for that matter i would not go anywhere near John Meyer, Wilmer Valdarama,Leo Dicaprio,George Clooney,Simon Cowell. They have been with enough women to populate a small country yuck

  4. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Okay, seriously–I could see having a FWB relationship with John Mayor–as in as soon as the afterglow fades, I would be OUT of there as soon as possible. I don’t understand WHAT he has, beyond sex and good looks, that hooks these women, who keep coming back, no matter how badly he treats them. Don’t get it.

  5. JaDeRu says:

    I’m returning to my bed chamber with a bottle of wine and a box of tissue to bid farewell to true love.

  6. littlestar says:

    We all predicted this. On every single Katy and John post on here. I think it is safe to say, no one here is surprised.

    I am slightly glad though that Katy was the one who supposedly did the dumping.

    John Mayer is such a loser.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Ugh, he’ll probably be back. Or he might pull a ‘Joe Wright’ and get pap’d with a car full of strippers with his friends, in a couple of days.

      Don’t get it–my older sister is with someone who got her house shot up–where her five year old son, my nephew was in the house. The dude is nice, don’t get me wrong, but he brought that bs to her house. Who knows what’s going to happen next??

      • littlestar says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised either if Mayer came crawling back. Perry was BY FAR the bigger star in that relationship and he knew that by being with her, she raised his profile (even though he would never admit that of course, him being a “genius” and all…). I just don’t understand what women see in him. It’s SO obvious he’s a Grade A Douche, how is not obvious them them? He seems to go for women who aren’t exactly rocket scientists though, so there’s that…

        And yikes! That is scary and hopefully was a wakeup call to your sister!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Well yes, there’s that too. When I first started reading this site–I read his Rolling Stone interview, and went back and read his archives–all of it had to do with the women he dated i.e. Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston. I’ve heard he’s talented–I have no clue, but he’s not THAT famous. I’ve read from other posters that he goes after vulnerable women–after they get out of a relationship, etc…I’m inclined to think that’s true.

        As for my sister–unfortunately it was not. My mom is PISSED. The dude, who is a really nice, sweet guy apparently got my sister’s house shot up over 20 dollars…yeah, right. It’s a hard thing, because the dude who fired the bullets is dating my ‘aunt’–she’s adopted, so she’s only about four years older than me, and she wouldn’t help with the police investigation, so now we (at least I don’t) talk to her anymore…..

      • littlestar says:

        This IS another big factor in his dating history – he definitely goes after vulnerable women. I remember when he was dating Jessica Simpson. She coloured her hair dark brown, in an attempt to be seen as more “serious” by him, and I think I recall her talking about how she was reading poetry etc. Basically she was trying to change herself to get his approval. I distinctly remember thinking how sad it was that she felt like she had to be some artsy intelligento type to get his attention, and I wondered what kind of man he was that he would let her do that. And this was before that disgusting racist and sexist interview of his! Now, I think that he really enjoys mind f*cking women he thinks are inferior to him, playing with them and abusing them (you already know about his penchant for p**ping on women…). He’s just a plain old sicko in my opinion. As for his talent, he can actually play the guitar quite well, but I am not a fan of his music or voice. Sappy and annoying and very basic rhyming lyrics.

        Sadly, your sister will have to figure out for herself that no matter how nice this guy seems, he’s bad news :( . I have a cousin who was with a guy who turned her life upside down (and continues to do so even though she’s no longer with him) – we all told her he was an awful person. She wouldn’t listen to any of us. She had to learn the hard way unfortunately that he was not a good person :( .

      Ditto! Although I am more than slightly glad. I love it that she dumped him. i’m pretty meh on her, but now that she dumped him, I think I like her more, lol.

  7. HerIndoors says:

    No way did she dump him. Face saving is all.

  8. yennefer says:


    And this puppet will be back with him in two weeks.

  9. blue marie says:

    Why do I have a feeling that they’ll be engaged in less than a month?

  10. jojo says:

    bets on who he ends up with next. The twerking wrecking ball perhaps? Or maybe Lohan?

  11. Jayna says:

    It was embarrassing to see them together in interviews. She was fawning all over him and in love and he was barely attentive to her. Zero chemistry.

    Let’s face it, he probably wanted out sooner, but he had to stay with her long enough to get this single out there that they did a duet together on and promo it and do interviews together Now that’s done and over with, and John didn’t need her anymore and became his usual douchy self and passive aggressively forced her to dump him by treating her like sh..t.

    • Lauren says:

      I saw these two on a morning show clip, and John didn’t seem to respect Katy at all. He seemed embarrassed to be with her, and the awkwardness was painful to watch.

      John is a phenomenal guitar player and a brilliant songwriter–he is well educated and had a scholarship to Berkley, but dropped out. Katy is very calculating and ambitious, but an intellectual lightweight.
      I think Katy wanted to get engaged on Valentines Day, and John didn’t meet her demands. Thus, another breakup.

      • Jayna says:

        On Good Morning America? I saw that one and it was sooo painful. I saw them on a late night show also, maybe Kimmel or Fallon I can’t remember.

        He is a great guitarist and an excellent songwriter. I’ve seen him in concert and he puts on a great concert. But I really don’t think he likes women, to be honest. I think he loves women and screwing them and all that. I don’t think he actually likes women and really seems to have a not so carefully hidden disdain for anyone he has been with. It must do a number on your self-esteem and psyche to be with him and finally realize no matter how much you change or act to please him, it won’t matter. He will never really love you because he’s not capable of really deep love. Seeking his approval just does a number on his women I think.

      • here's Wilson says:

        the dicktamazation of Katie Perry…..I feel bad for her… hopefully she doesn’t go back for sloppy thirds, fourths, whatever ##

  12. shitler says:

    Let’s play “Who should Katy date next?”
    I vote Jared Leto

  13. lunchcoma says:

    Not such a good move on his part. He’s basically peaked, both in terms of fame and looks, and it’s not like he has a great personality to fall back on. He would have been smart to latch onto Katie’s still-rising star.

  14. The Original G says:

    All the full scale stage costumed music extravaganzas in the world to lure John and us into the idea that they’re a great love just points out what an emotional adolecent this chick is.

  15. Kemper says:

    Now Katy & Taylor Swift can duet together.

  16. K-Rock says:

    Jeez that picture of them together where she’s got her talons dug in and he’s twisting away…I’m mortified for her

  17. Maureen says:

    Did she finally realize that he cringes at being touched by her if she isn’t naked?

    Seriously, the douche’s discomfort at being “boyfriend” is written all over him. He wants to sleep with a sexy girl. He doesn’t want all that other stuff that comes with a relationship.

  18. gg says:

    He needs somebody strong and way more boheme, she needs somebody weak and retro.

  19. pnichols says:

    first of all – all of these comments- lmao!! I just choked on my coffee. And second of all- WHY DO WOMEN LIKE THIS DUDE!!! I don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t see anything remotely attractive or redeeming. To quote Cher: “you’re not interesting enough to make me sick.”

    • Janet says:

      He must be dynamite in bed. I can’t think of any other reason.

      • Jayna says:

        I can never get past that visual I read of him when people were posting if they had ever hooked up with a famous person on Reddick. This story is too far out to be a lie. Someone doesn’t usually lie about being treated badly when being picked up. This girl posted her friend left a bar with him he was at after a concert. They went to her apartment. They were kissing and all of a sudden he didn’t want to get it on right then and suggested a shower. While they were in the shower he told her to talk dirty to him and then he just stared into her eyes while he masturbated. She went along with it thinking it would progress I guess to sex. But he finished masturbating, and that was it. He got dressed and left, nothing for her. LOL Someone on here said they had heard a similar story about him, no sex because he was too drunk, just getting off.


      • LadySlippers says:

        Oh God, he seriously does like Rosey & her sisters. OMG. Men that use you only to get off are selfish. WOW.

        And then Katy sings about John making her ‘Walk on Air’ which you know is bad if my 15 year old daughter is seriously rolling her eyes.

        Google the lyrics. And bring a barf bag and/ or steal Izzy’s bleach. DON’T say I didn’t warn you either.

      • pnichols says:

        No way. After hearing that shower story (LOL) he is even less attractive to me. I’m thinking she’s one of those chicks that takes emotional abuse and tries to “fix” the guy. So much for hearing her roar. More like a muffled meow. Cut him off.

    • lunchcoma says:

      My usual assumption in these cases is that he’s really good in bed, but thinking about John Mayer in bed just makes me nauseated.

  20. Jessica says:

    I must be losing my edge. I was surprised both by the blurred lines guy story (i can never remember his name) and this one too.

  21. jlee says:

    My fantasy “Katy it’s not you or me, it’s your bangs. Call me for the next go round once they’ve grown out.”

  22. Boobookitty says:

    I fail to see why his all of his girlfriends think Mayer is a genius. His songs suck andhe acts like dbag. I have yet to hear him utter an intelligent thought or opinion about anything.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I can see why all his girlfriends think Mayer is a genius. It’s because he’s an averagely smart man who exclusively dates women who are substantially less intelligent than he is. It’s a type I’m usually wary of.

    • Adrien says:

      He’s a great guitar player but his lyrics are mushy. The ladies love men who can play the guitar very well. His songs, like Maroon 5 songs are the type that get played as supermarket background. I admit I like the incredibly sappy Battle Studies a lot. Like Adam Levine, John tries to maintain that kind of sly, douchey persona to make up for their pop-ish songs.

  23. Rockymtnprincess says:

    I wonder which skanky guy is going to be next for her…

  24. coconut says:

    his clothes are so southwest grandpa…they don’t fit the hip girls he dates.

  25. Izzy says:

    “…but he always gets the itch and ends up looking trapped…”

    Psst. Dear John: They have medicated creams and special jockey shorts for that.

  26. Meggin says:

    He never seemed that into her. That interview where she’s touching him and he looks like he is about to cringe says it all… just because a girl is beautiful doesn’t mean a guy is automatically in love with her.

  27. homegrrrl says:

    I like his consistent style, he goes for that “medicine man” look, but Katy tried to turn him into a hipster. Yeah, they’re not a fit. He needs some Montana/horsey young dumb blonde pseudo spiritual type who will look the other way when he re-diseases his dipstick.

    I do feel sorry for her, as I’m also try hard man-rehabber. IT NEVER WORKS; a dog might get re-trained, but a male homosapien is set in their ways past the age of 10. Sigh. I just got a shelter puppy, and that has taken my mind of trying to fix the un-fixable.

  28. PirateQueen says:

    Is it just me or does Katys face look different in this weeks photos ? Can’t quite put my finger on it….

  29. Bread and Circuses says:

    You know, I think they probably were a good match, personality-wise. But yeah, Mayer was never going to *not* get the itch to run away to another bosom. He’s a Peter Pan.

  30. Annah says:

    Long time lurker. Just went back a couple of Mayer posts and guess who he did years ago! Scheanna Marie, the waitress Eddie “The Kept Man” Cibrian cheated with. Ugh. Feels like a gross high school reunion. Can’t even bring myself to mention the STDs…

  31. Tara says:

    Bleh. He has the worst fashion sense. That’s the nicest thing I have to say about him.

  32. Vivian says:

    Long post, here we go:

    Oh wow Katy Perry, did you wipe the cakeup off your face long enough for Mayer to finally see beyond your smoke and mirrors? He got his fill and has dumped you (also Brand) because SEX DOESNT LAST; have you heard of that psychological effect wherein humans adapt to any feeling, emotion, gift, booty call they get? It wears off! Your sexual charm stops as soon as he *finishes*. I thought you wanted to be more mature and less sexual for your new album, but WOOPS, there goes you on a GQ cover half naked. I may not have your body, definitely not your boobs, but let me tell you a secret to men: what they are attracted to is more than looks; its an energy, a certain INTELLIGENCE, a woman who plays her cards right intellectually and physically. Shes got the looks, the confidence, and she never sells herself short (or sexually). Brand doesnt want you (hes way too smart for you), Mayer got his fill; why not go back to school and learn something to expand your mind, not a man’s pants!

  33. BackstageBitchy says:

    What his women all have in common, besides being big pop-culture “names”, is deep and obviously insecure personalities. Starting with that poor desperate-for-love Jennifer Love Hewitt, (tries on engagement rings, etc), through Jessica Simpson (sad, divorced, struggling with daddy issues, waning fame etc), to Jennifer Aniston (documented signs of deep insecurity too numerous to mention) and now into Katy Perry, who, despite her sex kitten image, is clearly open to being molded by her men (from tattoed punk rock dude when she first broke out, to yoga and everything-Indian with Russel and now hipster-arty horseback riding John Mayer iteration).
    I think he clearly enjoys finding women who have a sexy public image but deep-seated personal insecurities, and preying on their combo of their celebrity arrogance ( that Bad Boy will change for ME!” ) , & desperation for approval and those insecurities.
    On a side note, the first time I personally encountered him, it was the late 90s/ early aughts, he was NOT famous, he was very puffy/ fat, dumpily dressed, stringy haired, schlubby, and standing alone awkwardly leaning on a pillar at a party in NYC. He looked miserable, insecure and cocky all at the same time. So maybe he’s working through his own loser sad-guy demons and insecure past by playing with the minds of these celeb women…

  34. Goddess says:

    I’m sorry, did she really think she’ll be “The One” who can reform this man and purge him of all douchabaggery? Seriously. The greatest lesson my mother taught me about men was that “If you’re going to be with a man with the dream that you’re going to be able to change him, you’ll just end up brokenhearted”. I think the whole “I’ll be the one to change him” theory is crap IMO.

  35. Andrea says:

    Russell brand to John Mayer is like filet mignon to chop steak. I wouldn’t touch John Mayer if he were the only man available.

  36. Andrea says:

    And btw, I wonder if Katy does have a drinking problem (and blow)?
