Katy Perry & John Mayer split for a 4th time: ‘maybe she’s too good for him’

Katy Perry

Much like this outfit on Katy Perry, it looks like I’ve lost a bet. The last time Katy and John Mayer got back together (two months ago) we took a poll here. Kaiser and CB both thought this latest reconcilation wouldn’t last long. I thought John would be dumb enough to put a ring on it but break off the engagement. Aaaaand I was wrong. In retrospect, I should have guessed something was up when Katy dressed like her version of a goth at Paris Fashion week. Katy always goes dark after a bad split. She was also canoodling with a banjo player (Winston Marshall from Mumford & Sons) in Berlin this weekend.

Now there’s an official reason for her antics. Katy and John broke up (again) for the fourth time. Fourth, right? That we know of. Much like last time (a year ago), there are rumors that John can’t stay faithful. Katy’s camp is (again) putting out details about how she’s too busy with touring to try and make it work. Radar says the reunion was pure convenience (they wanted to hit it), and John can’t handle it when Katy’s career heats up:

That was fast! Just two months after Katy Perry and John Mayer rekindled their romance, RadarOnline.com has learned that the perpetually on-off pair have called it quits again.

According to multiple sources close to the couple, the brief reconciliation was more about convenience than anything else. “Katy and John reconnected once she had a break in her Prismatic World Tour. So, for those few months they had a great time, pretending that it would last — and of course it didn’t,” the source explained.

According to the insider, Perry, 30, and Mayer’s relationship can’t handle the pressures of their careers. “The reason they have split in the past is because Katy gets busy. John can’t handle the lack on attention, and she can’t handle the trust issues she has when she’s so far away,” the source said. “So they’ve learned that it’s better to just take a break when they can’t be in the same place.”

Another source claims that, instead of being happy for his lady, Mayer, 37, had become increasingly jealous of Katy’s success. “The fact that he does not have anything major going on with his career is really starting to take a toll on their relationship,” the source said. “Katy is at an all-time high. She is starting to give in to what everyone around her is saying, that maybe she is too good for him.”

I’m guessing all of this is coming from Katy’s camp because John’s the one getting trashed. He also doesn’t use others to send his messages. This is a guy who’s dumb enough to talk the paparazzi when he wants to trash an ex. With that said, it’s a douche move for Katy’s people to kick John during his career downswing. Yes it’s true that she’s riding at her highest point of success, but she was still dumb enough to take him back! Own your mistakes, girl.

These two are both messes. John just happens to be the bigger, more outwardly arrogant mess. Surely they won’t get back together again for a fifth time, but yeah. I’ll probably lose that bet too.

    Or maybe she’s an idiot to keep going back to him?

  2. Christin says:

    But he has that new, huge camper-truck custom contraption that supposedly goes anywhere. Maybe it was the third party in their latest (cough) relationship attempt.

  3. lisa2 says:

    John seems to have been pretty quiet for some time. And are you really too good for a guy you keep going back to.

  4. kibbles says:

    I always say this but I just do not understand how he can get with so many beautiful celebrities. I understand that many women have a thing for musicians, but his musical talent isn’t enough for me to want to date him. He is very unattractive to me. This guy must be very suave in person, great in the sack, or knows how to take advantage of women who aren’t very bright, who are lonely, or have low self-esteem. He has no redeeming qualities other than that he is a good musician. I can understand dating a secret douche who at least keeps his sex life under wraps, but after knowing that he blabs about exes to the media, I would not touch him with a ten foot pole. At this point it isn’t even his fault. He’s already given himself a bad reputation. Any woman who still wants that should only blame herself for the inevitable break up and public humiliation.

      I don’t understand it now – when he first started out he was cute in almost a geeky kind of way, but the longer he’s been famous, the worse he’s gotten. With all that’s known about him now, I don’t understand the appeal at ALL.

    • Kosmos says:

      @ Kibbles–you are SO right! When all is said and done, I really wouldn’t recommend John Mayer to any woman. Yes, he’s a hugely talented singer and musician, no doubt about that, but something is definitely missing in the relationship department. Some people are not cut out for pairing up, at least not for long stints. Katy was probably very ‘attached’ to him and out of that attachment, continues to go back. Not everything between a couple’s relationship is bad—they probably have enough positives to make hooking up again worthwhile—but I would advise Katy to LOOK AWAY this time…..move on, and don’t look back.

  5. I stick to the theory that this chick is either A) crazy, or B) has the WORST taste in men ever. Considering Russell Brand left her via text message (and knowing from experience that when women break up with a man that way it’s USUALLY because they’ve been advised tofor their own safety as the guy is unstable/manipulative) I’m going with crazy.

    • Andrea says:

      I couldn’t agree more with this assessment. Russell seems like the guy who would tell you through a rational conversation if you were of sound mind.

    Eh, I know the Super Bowl is a big deal, but I wouldn’t say she’s at the height of her career with “Prism” — it didn’t do nearly as well as “Teenage Dream.” That’s the album that tied with MJ’s for 5 number one singles. “Prism” came out after she’d already released its two biggest (and only notable, in my opinion) hits, “Dark Horse” and “Roar,” and then the album didn’t even move 300k units the first week. Compared to the performance of Taylor Swift’s 1989, which moved 1.287 million its first week, that’s not good at all. And since her album’s release, she hasn’t been known for much besides d-bag John Mayer and feuding with T.Swift. Her fame and likability hasn’t taken as big a hit as Gaga’s, but she definitely needs another hit album to reclaim the “top female US pop star”/”top of her career” title, in my opinion.

    • Kosmos says:

      You may say that–and I’m not even a Katy fan–but she’s making $$ millions, so I wouldn’t call that nothing…..she’s very popular with some people, enough fans love her and have made her a star, so I’d say she has been very successful.

    I actually think these two vacuous morons are perfect for each other. PERFECT. They should stay together so as not to torture others with their hypocritical cupcake boobs and superior intellect.

    • kri says:

      “Hypocritical cupcake boobs”??! HAHAHAHAHA! Oh, god that is brilliant @liitlemissnaughty. That will be the next insult I hurl at someone. Thanks!!

  8. PunkyMomma says:

    My money’s on a reunion. These two were made for each other.

  9. Tiffany27 says:

    They will absolutely get back together.

  10. Kelly says:

    Well she’s not too good for him

  11. Andrea says:

    I’d bet $100 they will get back together.

    • Tiffany says:

      I will take that bet. Ahhh, who am I kidding. I don’t have $100.00 to give you, Andrea.

  12. kri says:

    These two are made for each other. I’m currently putting the finishing touches on my new musical invention in their honor. it’s called a “herpeschord”. It’s always out of tune, it’s covered in gumdrops and two idiots have to play it together. I almost want to know what john Mayer’s got tho-in bed, I mean. These women keep getting with him.

  13. Jordan says:

    She has Aniston beat for the taking a loser back title.

  14. Cali says:

    This week she was trying hard to get press again – posting a pic of her wearing a necklace that said “Mom” on it. Eye roll. This chick will do almost anything to get articles written about her. She bores me to tears.

  15. serena says:

    She’s not to good for him, she’s as much of an idiot as him. It’s too convenient and late to say this after your 2324234 split. But yes, better late than never.

  16. danielle says:

    I think she’s too good for him. Jennifer Aniston is too good for him, Jessica Simpson is too good for him, maybe even Jennifer Love Hewitt! I think a fun game would be, who is NOT too good for him. Lohan, of course – but she might be too messed up. Giada, if she did get with him while married. Someone equally manipulative. Anyone have other fun ideas?
