Has John Mayer been ‘bombarding’ Rihanna with ‘sexy texts’ to try & hookup?

John Mayer

This story seems perfectly plausible to me in some ways but not others, so let’s get down to business. Katy Perry and John Mayer broke up for the second time last month, and both have been very quiet on the reason for this latest split. John did get grilled by Ellen DeGeneres, but he evaded questions and called it “a private relationship.” Of course, Katy is former BFFs with Rihanna, and their friendship supposedly hit the skids because Katy didn’t approve of Chris Brown for obvious reasons.

Now that Rihanna and Chris are probably broken up again, would Rihanna turn on Katy and hook up with John? A new story in this week’s issue of OK! magazine says that John has been desperately trying to make it happen with RiRi by sending her suggestive texts, and the story says that Rihanna hasn’t rejected John just yet. Could this be the start of a gross new romance?


There’s a report that in the wake of John Mayer and Katy Perry’s split, Ye Olde Douchebag is doing the unthinkable – [going] after Katy’s best friend, Rihanna.

According to OK! magazine, Mayer has been “bombarding” Rih with texts, “begging for a date.” A source claims, “Rihanna was amazed when she heard from John, but deep down it didn’t surprise Rihanna because he has been chasing her for years.”

The insider adds, “His texts were very sexy, and he said they should get together.” And don’t count out Rihanna just yet. Since she and Chris Brown break up and make up all the time, especially now while since he’s been flirting up a storm with randoms while she’s away on tour, Rih might be “tempted to invite John to a show and see what happens there.”

Oh, how I wish this were true because, let’s face it, John and Rihanna are made for each other. I could totally see Mayer pulling a jerk move like this while Rih does have the worst – THE WORST – taste in dudes so why not Katy’s nasty leftovers?

Gossip Cop already says the report is “completely untrue,” but they’re always quick to deny any story related to John. It’s like he’s got them on speed-email dial or something, so I don’t necessarily put any faith into this denial at all.

What does give me pause is that John is a raging racist as evidenced by his claim of owning a “David Duke c*ck in that Playboy magazine interview from a few years ago. Of course, John tried to claim that he doesn’t even recall saying such terrible things (“it was a very strange time“), but he definitely said it. Is it wrong of me to actually hope that Rihanna would hook up with John? It would certainly keep her away from Chris Brown for awhile, and that’s always a plus.

    I doubt a man who said his penis is like David Duke (leader of the KKK for those who don’t know) when it comes to Black women would want to get it on with Riri. No matter how they try to package him he will always be a racist in my eyes. Are you still waiting on the world to change you douche?

    • Nooneimportant says:

      You beat me to it. However, he wouldn’t be the first racist to bed/like black women – James Strom Thurmond comes to mind and countless other white southern ‘gentlemen’ during slavery and the Jim Crow years.

      • nofkksgiven says:

        this. Plus, despite her personal life drama….Rih is so successful at this point anyone who dates her gets the biggest of publicity boosts…

      • V4Real says:

        Yes I know and there’s no need to talk about slavery and what took place in the slave quarters. It’s just unbelieveable that in this modern day and time people like douche Mayer can make such public racist statements.

    • Cameron says:

      I was going to say the same. Oh please,John “Jim crow” penis.

    • Aud says:

      I think he is a major douche as well, but that type of attitude he has (about his penis being a white supremacist and all that) didn’t stop other similar men from sleeping with African women either during the slave era.
      He is just disgusting. I don’t even know why the media give him coverage. Everything about him, from the second he opens his mouth, is just god-awful and vile.

      • alxandra says:

        Sleeping? The sex was not consensual those women were savagely raped. I love the fact that sometimes the comments on this lovely blog can be mean and bitchy. However, we all feel the same way about racism and douches like John Mayer.

    • Barbie Doll says:

      @ V4Real…You nailed it! I totally agree with you 100%.

  2. Becky says:

    Omg, how does a guy dressed like that get laid ever?

  3. didi says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually did try to get with Rhihanna. There are numerous people who are/were racists who still sleep/date races that they are racist towards(twisted but it happens).It happened in the past and unfortunately it happens even now.

  4. SydneySpy says:

    I think he’s an oily git, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the girl caves in. He seems to be an ace at “rescuing” vulnerable women, or is that just quickly picking up someone’s crumbs? Seems to be his shtick. Clothes might maketh some men, but he’s obviously got a certain charisma that some ladies find attractive….

  5. jinni says:

    In what world is dating a racist ever a better alternative to dating an abuser? They’re both terrible prospects; one isn’t better than the another. Why would anyone encourage a person to date either kind of a-hole? I don’t get the reasoning behind such an idea.

    • Lauren says:

      I whole-heartedly agree with your statement

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Yup. It’s a sad day when your apparent options are the dude who beat you to a pulp or an openly racist douchnozzle. Decisions decisions.

  6. Maritza says:

    Now that he isn’t dating anyone, no one cares about him. He definitely has his own interest in mind.

  7. dcypher1 says:

    If she hooks up with john she can kiss katey good bye. She would probably never speak to riri again.

  8. virginia5 says:

    I thought he said his d*ck is a racist supremacist :/

  9. jm says:

    Weren’t there reports that Rihanna didn’t approve of Katy dating John as well?

  10. HouseofBeatrix says:

    John Mayer has been trying to get with Rihanna for years. So did Russell Brand. Katy Perry scoops up RiRi rejects.

  11. Jenny says:

    I think RiRi and Fist Brown are at least sort of still on in their on again off again relationship. She just tweeted out pictures of them together in the last week and I think called him her man or some nonsense.

  12. Kelly says:

    Yuck, what a choice: Christ Brown or John Mayer. I used to love MAyer’s music, kind of Van Morrison light.

    Is he a racist for sure? He is the ULTIMATE douche, that’s for sure. Talk about kissing and telling.

  13. Nev says:

    Mayer wouldn’t know how to handle Riri anyways.

    • YEP_ITS_HER says:

      I doubt it. Anyway, He’s racist and although she clearly doesn’t know it, she can do waaay better when it comes to the boyfriend thing

  14. Jennifer says:

    John Mayer likes to date famous women. So i can see it. I dont think he is truly racist, he is just an arrogant douchebag.

  15. MellyBee says:

    Look at his wee lifts. Precious.

  16. Nooneimportant says:

    @V4Real I can talk about slavery all I want. Please do not try to police my thoughts. Ta.

  17. Helvetica says:

    …cue Chris Brown’s next meltdown/beatdown in 5, 4, 3, 2…

  18. babythestarsshinenright says:

    He’s gross

    • minamka says:

      They are both sooo gross,, ewww

      • Ally8 says:

        That’s why they’d be perfect together! I don’t think he’s enough drama for her, though.

      • Well hello there says:

        How is she gross exactly????? Smokes a bit of weed and forgets to wear clothes sometimes. Big deal. As for him looking consistently sweaty, eyes glazed and the weird creepy smirk. Plus the whole racist against black women thing. Calling dude gross is actually being kind considering.

  19. TheRealTea says:

    I hope she shits on his David duke dick for him & then promptly kicks him out! Though I’m sure he’d love it….racist jerk.

  20. YEP_ITS_HER says:

    Can’t believe people are buying this!! This story was probs started by Mayer’s PR team. I am quite sure a Hollywood Madame outed this fella some years back.
