Katy Perry and John Mayer have dated off and on for a couple years, but they are currently reported to be “on.” The two were first announced as a couple in 2012 and have weathered break up rumors as well as engagement speculation throughout their relationship. According to People, a source has revealed that the two missed each other and are now very much in love after Mayer and Perry were seen on what appeared to be a romantic double date with friends Allison Williams and her fiance Ricky Van Veen at Chateau Marmont.
1. Perry Recently Stated She’s Going To Be More Protective Of Her Relationships
When talking about her dating life in a recent interview with Billboard, Perry said:
What I will say is that to have any relationship at this level you have to just be protective and figure out how to navigate it. There is no handbook. In all my relationships, I’ve learned how I have to be more careful and that it’s not up for public consumption.
Perhaps it was all the PDA she had with Mayer in the past that originally led to their issues.
2. There Were Rumors That Perry Would Bring John Mayer On Stage With Her At the 2015 Super Bowl
Radar Online reported that Katy Perry was pushing for her man Mayer to join her onstage at the Super Bowl. A source revealed:
Katy is definitely bringing John with her on Sunday and there were talks that the couple would do a duet. It was her idea. Katy was really trying to push for him coming on stage. She still is … John was simply not into it. He said that he was having some vocal issues related to his throat condition.
So, it looks like there will be no Mayer performance. However, Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott are reported to be joining Perry on stage.
3. John Mayer Has Been A Ladies’ Man In Hollywood
Throughout the years, John Mayer has been known as a ladies’ man in Hollywood, though his public comments about the love he had for Perry in the past were different. He hadn’t been as openly affectionate with others in the past. Mayer had a long-term on-again-off-again relationship with Jennifer Aniston before she got together with her fiance and he was also involved with Jessica Simpson. Mayer faced a lot of backlash when he opened up about the personal details of his sex life with both Aniston and Simpson. He told Playboy magazine that sex with Simpson was like “crazy sexual napalm,” while he said that at times, he wished it would have worked out with Aniston.
4. There Have Been Recent Rumors That Perry’s Been Seeing Quarterback Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson is one of the quarterbacks for the Seattle Seahawks, who are playing in the Super Bowl and there has been recent speculation that Wilson and Super Bowl Halftime headliner Katy Perry were seeing each other. Perry publicly stated:
I was texting with my good friend Russell Wilson the other day, um, he’s actually been able to visit me and see my shows. He’s a really good friend of ours and I was actually texting him, I was like, how do you prep for the Super Bowl? Like, what do you eat? I love the Seahawks because of Russell and I’m going to publicly go for them.
So, do you think they’re just friends or is there more to it? If Mayer’s in the picture, they’re most likely just friends.
5. Perry’s Last Reported Relationship Was With DJ Diplo
Katy Perry was last reported to be dating Thomas Pentz, aka DJ Diplo. During the course of their relationship, Diplo had a son with ex-girlfriend Kathryn Lockhart as Lockhart was two months pregnant when she and Diplo broke up. They named the baby Lazer and already have a son named Lockett together. Perry and Diplo’s relationship was a bit low-key and Hollywood Life reported that:
After Russell [Brand] and John [Mayer], she doesn’t want to have the same media storm she had with them because that took a toll on those relationships and really were a main reason for the trouble. They are still involved but she is being very closed off on this because she wants it to work.
