Single actresses and female musicians, it’s time to check your Valtrex RX’s or ask your doctor for a pamphlet about genital herpes, because John Mayer has been released back into the wild!
US Weekly reports John and Katy Perry have broken up for a second time after a little less than a year of dating.
“It’s sad,” one pal tells Us, but cautions that it might not be a permanent break. “It’s not over until it’s over. You have to see how things play out.” Adds another source: “She’s leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work.”
Indeed, Perry has been busy recording her third studio album in Los Angeles, while Mayer — on the mend following serious vocal problems and throat surgery last year — is prepping for upcoming tour dates and a live Google Hangout chat this Thursday, March 21.
Following their September 2012 reconciliation, the twosome seemed to ramp up their relationship: The “Waiting on the World to Change” troubadour visited Perry’s Santa Barbara hometown in November, they attended high-profile events together as a couple, and Mayer, famous for his string of A-list exes, gushed about Perry in a January 60 Minutes interview. “I’m very happy in all aspects of my life,” said Mayer, who had messy splits with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt, to name a few.
I find it interesting that the article seems to stress the ‘for now’ part, as if these two perhaps have a tumultuous relationship (which wouldn’t surprise me at all) and perhaps breaking up and getting back together is a drama these two would actually thrive on. Also of note is the ‘she’s leaving the window open’ quote, making it seem that Katy is the one who initiated the break up. Anyway, like flies to a dog turd, I have no doubt these two will find their way back to each other once again.
