John Mayer: Jealous of Katy Perry and Russell Brand?

by at . Comments

Was John Mayer jealous of Katy Perry and Russell Brand, and did that lead to the couple's second (and for the love of all things good, final) breakup?

According to reports, the singer-songwriter wasn’t happy that his now-ex was still on friendly terms with her former husband, who she split with in late 2011.

Mayer grew tired of Katy’s comparisons between him and the Brit comedian, and it created tension between them that threatened to boil over at any point.

Eventually, it just became too much.

“John and Katy together were like a volcano,” a source says. “Their relationship was incredibly volatile, stemming from the jealousy they both harbored deep inside."

“Sure, Katy was unhappy that John constantly flirted with other girls and played up his heartbreaker image, even when she was standing next to him."

“But, Katy gave it back. She knew that she could push John’s buttons by comparing his flaws to what she saw was great in Russell, which he hated!"

“Katy and Russell still talk to one another, and that irked John. He’s never been in a relationship where he wasn’t the main focus all the time and it bothered him."

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres this week, Mayer stayed uncharacteristically tight lipped about his failed romance with the pop princess.

“It was a private relationship going in, it was private relationship during, and it’s a very private relationship still,” he said. “Coupling is a tricky thing.”

“I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I’ve given, but I finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and another."

Well, that's a first.

So no sexual napalm comparisons apparently this time. Sad, in a way, from a celebrity gossip standpoint, but probably for the best as a human being.

I think katy perry and russell brand Good couple but john mayer jealous of they !!


what i dont understand is how katy perry can still be friends with kritin stewart when katy perrys ex-husband did the exact same thing to her that kristin stewart did to robert pattinson

@ heather

I don't think Russell cheated, it was more of a case of wanting different things in life (him wanting a family, her wanting her career while it's hot). I don't think she belongs with John Mayer, but I hope she finds the happiness she's looking for.


I think Katy is a very interesting and beautiful woman.
I also think John & Katy are a perfect fit. They are creative, talented and sexy people. (Russell was too). The thing is she is younger. Hopefully John & Katy reunite. Love like that is unique and they should make it work.


pleas dont use bad language like "russell brand", will ya?

@ abe

Funny, I've never seen that in an article that also included John Mayer.
