From Jessica Simpson to Jennifer Aniston, John Mayer’s Dating history reads like a who’s who of celebrity women (via Hollywood Life). Who could forget the turmoil surrounding Mayer’s relationship with Katy Perry when she was linked to Taylor Swift, a former friend? (via Time).
Thankfully, Perry and Swift’s dispute is no longer active; Perry has since married Orlando Bloom and is happily in love with him. According to Rolling Stone, the “California Gurls” singer was supposedly still “madly in love” with Mayer at one point.
Perry said the two broke up because of their busy schedules, but she also dubbed the singer of “Your Body Is a Wonderland” a “tortured soul.” “I do have to find out why I am attracted to these damaged birds,” she admitted, alluding to Mayer and her ex-husband Russel Brand. Mayer’s reputation isn’t exactly stellar, especially when it comes to the women he’s dated. Swift has a thing for dating younger ladies, as evidenced by his song “Dear John,” which includes the line “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with.”
The musician is apparently linked to Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie David, who is 17 years younger than him, according to She Finds. Fans may recall that there was only a seven-year age difference between him and Perry when they were together.
Katy Wanted to Party, While John Wanted to “Go Home”
Even though they were close in age, it appears that their differing lifestyles had a role in their breakup. Katy Perry liked to go out and party even when the two were dating, according to People in 2014. According to a source close to the singer, John Mayer “simply wanted to walk away from all the festivities and go home.” According to The Daily Mail, the two began dating in 2012 and were on again, off-again until their official divorce in 2015.
Mayer is said to have applauded Perry at her Super Bowl XLIX halftime concert, referring to himself as “the first gentleman of Katy Perry,” allowing the pop singer to take center stage despite his own celebrity. According to The Things, he was the “first gentleman,” and Mayer’s nickname for Perry was “Prism.” If you’re a Perry fan, you’re probably aware that her 2013 album, “Prism,” had a few songs co-written by the two. Some fans believe that songs like “Legendary Lovers” and “Walking On Air” are also about Mayer.
It’s been a few years since they broke up, but there doesn’t appear to be any animosity between the two ex-lovers. In fact, during a section of James Corden’s show in 2017, Perry honored Mayer by putting him first among her prior partners (via Vanity Fair). He even beat out her current boyfriend, Bloom, who came in second.
‘American Idol’: Katy Perry Laughs at Her Ex John Mayer
“Who is going to pay for my extra hour of therapy?” On April 25, Katy Perry made a live request on “American Idol” after her ex-John Mayer link was brought up. Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan selected songs for the Top 11 performers to perform on “Idol.” Luke chose Noah Thompson to perform Mayer’s “Heartbreak Warfare.” Noah, on the other hand, assumed Katy had chosen the song.
“Noah, I feel like you should Wikipedia me,” Katy said, eliciting laughter from the other judges.
“A resounding no?” Noah inquired about Katy and John’s relationship, which lasted from 2012 through 2015. “Did you say no?”
“What she’s implying is that it wouldn’t, but…” Ryan Seacrest spoke out to break the awkward silence. However, he was dismissed.
“It’s a fantastic tune,” Katy remarked. I’m at a loss for words! She cried, “I’m triggered!” After that, he slid behind the judges’ table. She even tossed a chip bag to a member of the audience.
“Noah, we’ll explain later,” Ryan said.
“You sounded wonderful,” Katy praised when Noah finished his song, while Lionel and Luke criticized it. This is a fantastic song. He’s a genius in my opinion. You’re a talented artist. It’s excellent that you’re always pushing yourself to improve right now. You continue to astound us. It was impossible to do John Denver because it was too evident. “Way to go.”
Russell Brand and Katy Perry separated in 2012. Before splitting up in 2015, they dated for three years. Katy started dating Orlando Bloom in 2016, and the two got engaged in 2019. In the year 2020, Daisy Dove Bloom was born.
Fantasy for teenagers! Justin York is a musician and the older brother of Taylor York, the band Paramore’s guitarist. Katy and he began dating while she was only 17 years old.
In 2003, Katy began dating Relient K’s guitarist. Matt appeared in her music video for “Longshot,” and she has occasionally performed with the Christian rock band. In 2005, they called it quits.
The songs “Circle the Drain” and “The One That Got Away” was inspired by this awful relationship. From 2005 to 2006, the Grammy nominee dated the Sons of Anarchy star. Johnny was discovered deceased in 2012 after a long history of drug use and run-ins with the law.
Before falling or jumping to his death from a rooftop, he murdered his 81-year-old landlord, Catherine Davis. Katy was “devastated” by her ex’s sad demise, according to a source at the time.
In 2006, Katy started dating Gym Class Heroes frontman, and their relationship blossomed. She starred in the music video for “Cupid’s Chokehold” before becoming renowned for “I Kissed a Girl.” In 2008, Katy sent an email to end the relationship.
“She wasn’t a naive person.” Travie admitted in a Behind the Music special in 2012, “She knew when I was f—ked up.” “I choose drugs over us.” As her life unfolded, I began to question my role in it. At times, I felt like a stepping ladder.”
