A newly divorced Katy Perry is doing little to dispel rumors about a possible romantic spark between her and singer-songwriter John Mayer. Perry, whose divorce from British comedian Russell Brand was finalized last month, was spotted leaving the historic Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood with Mayer Wednesday night. Photos splashed across the Internet Thursday show the pair in an SUV, with Mayer behind the wheel. According to “The Huffington Post,” the two looked “cozy” while dining at Pace restaurant in Los Angeles before heading to Chateau Marmont. Rumors about a possible romantic link between the two first surfaced last month with a number of public sightings. Perry and Mayer were first spotted together stepping out for a slice of pizza then “holding hands and cuddling” at Soho House in West Hollywood.
Mayer was previously paired with actress Jennifer Aniston and singer Jessica Simpson. He recently called out country-pop star Taylor Swift for her song “Dear John,” which is widely rumored to be about him. Mayer told “Rolling Stone” he was “humiliated” by the song’s lyrics, which refer to an older guy “messing with” a young girl, calling it “cheap songwriting.”
