Katy Perry & John Mayer SPLIT!
Katy Perry has called it quits with John Mayer, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. The on-again/off-again couple first went public with their romance back in summer 2012 but quickly reunited after a short break that fall.
"Not sure how long it will last this time but yes, it is off for now," a source tells the mag. Another insider adds that the split was "mutual" and "extremely amicable," noting that the two remain close friends.
While one source cited Katy’s upcoming Prismatic tour schedule as a factor in the breakup, an insider says they simply “made the mature decision that it was the right time.”
John and Katy were last publicly seen together in late January at a Grammy after-party and again for The Beatles 50th Anniversary Tribute. The pair were even the subject of false engagement rumors over Valentine’s Day.
E! News was the first to report the news.

On being linked to Robert Pattinson: “I sent [Kristen Stewart] a text message saying: ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person. I’m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits.’”
On rekindling her romance with John Mayer: “He pulled away. That was a big hello for me… I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have… You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another. In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries. I think a lot of that was to do with the fear of loss.”
On her past relationships: “The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic… I’m not interested in taming anyone – I’m pretty wild myself.”

On ex-husband Russell Brand: “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011… At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”
On John Mayer: “I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him. All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
On being single: “I can just right now focus on me and strengthening myself and my emotional support system… I’m not in a relationship, I’m just on my own—I am myself in my own bed. I have to be happy being alone, and I am happy. I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way. I know I’m worth it.”
