Katy Perry broke up with singer-songwriter John Mayer in February but she's reportedly still "devastated" over the separation, a new report suggests.

She was visibly upset when he moved out, and has even been seeing a hypnotherapist since the break-up to allegedly try and "retrain her brain."

An insider told Grazia: "Katy was devastated ... they had talked about marriage and she seemed to think he was a changed man, so she is beyond gutted."

Alas, he supposedly cheated with Lauren McHale. What's a girl to do now?

"Katy is a firm believer in alternative therapies and she wants to wipe him away from her life for good, so she decided to see a hypnotherapist."

"She doesn't want to find him attractive anymore," the source added.

Wait ... so John Mayer is such addictive sexual napalm that you need a shrink to tell you not to bang him anymore? Come on Katy ... you're better than that.

Katy Perry and John Mayer recently split for good, despite almost universal belief in celebrity gossip circles that a proposal was a matter of when, not if.

The reason has been a mystery, until this theory posited by one tabloid:

Allegedly, Katy Perry was the one to say enough is enough after she found out about his relationship with 24-year-old SoulCycle instructor, Lauren McHale.

Apparently, the pair met at a bar in Los Angeles in May, then went back to her house for a little after-party after having a few drinks together.

“They kissed,” an insider revealed of Mayer and McHale.

“It was all very innocent. They didn’t sleep together.”

Not innocent enough for the "Dark Horse" singer.

Katy Perry and John Mayer have broken up, according to reports, ending a fairy tale relationship and surely devastating millions of fans nationwide.

Or not.

But it is somewhat surprising, given the duo's public displays of affection and persistent rumors that an engagement was just a matter of when, not if.

A source close to the pair says Katy Perry did the dumping. No other details about what prompted the "Dark Horse" singer's breakup were forthcoming.

Despite some ups and downs, the musical pair fast became one of Hollywood's hottest couples, sweetly gushing about each other in interviews.

They also collaborated on "Who You Love," off of his album Paradise Valley and sparked rumors more than once this year that he had proposed.

So much for that. Guess the ring on that finger was just a ring.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. That's true for everything, including breakups.

Musical power couple Katy Perry and John Mayer first broke up last August, but the breakup didn't take, and they got right back together again a month later. Psh, quitters.

Pop music’s strangest and maybe hottest on-again/off-again couple is off again. Katy Perry and John Mayer are over, and this time it looks like for good.

The couple began dating in early August and split after just a few weeks. They got back together a few weeks later but that reconciliation didn't last either.

"John just can’t commit, and he kept luring Katy back with promises that was going to change, but didn’t. Katy was pretty crazy about John Mayer," says a source.

Katy Perry and John Mayer have broken up.

They say the media made it more serious than it ever was, but in any case it is now over. The two singers are no longer dating, a source confirmed.

"They will end up as friends," the insider says. "They were honestly just hanging out and having fun. People made it out to be far more than it was."

Katy Perry and John Mayer recently had dinner at the Chateau Marmont, an animal-filled birthday bash at a Hollywood agent's home, and "sleepovers." Supposedly.

It seemed like a good match, according to an observer: "They acted like they've been a couple for a long time ... It definitely didn't seem like a new relationship."

Perry is recently divorced from Russell Brand, and dated Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd earlier this year before parting ways as friends.

Mayer's exes include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, Minka Kelly and now Katy Perry. We must be missing something here.

Katy Perry is once again a single lady after breaking up with her rebound rocker beau, Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

The pair weren't a pair long, only going public with their coupling last month, kissing at Coachella. Guess things went south shortly after.

"It wasn't serious," a source said. "She likes him a lot, but it was just a distraction. It was short-lived, she's still dealing with getting over her marriage and it's going to take her a while to truly be able to trust anyone again."

"She's still friends with Rob, but they were never serious ... she had doubts from the start. There are no hard feelings, they are both just very busy and had no expectations. Rob is a good guy, but she just wants to focus on her work."

Speaking of her marriage, she revealed why she decided to include her split from Russell Brand in her upcoming movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

"I thought it was important to show everything in between," the star said on Ellen today. "Sometimes people think that we're perfect, and we know we're not perfect, at all."

Just last week, Russell himself stopped by to talk to Ellen about Perry, who he had nothing but love for. Watch a clip from Katy's visit below:

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

The Internet may be a "wicked little liar," to use Russell Brand's words, a great deal of the time. But apparently not in this sad case. He's divorcing Katy Perry.

Just 24 hours after Russell was spotted sans wedding ring in London, with Katy 7,000 miles away with friends in Hawaii, the actor filed the papers this afternoon.

Brand personally confirmed the news, saying in a statement: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

Brand cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split in the official divorce documents, filed in Los Angeles Friday. The couple married October 23, 2010.

The documents list "community property assets," which may indicate a lack of prenup, or one that does not account for all their earnings and other assets.

The news is surprising and yet not, given recent reports that the couple had been having problems and spending time apart, possibly following a massive fight.

He does not list a date the couple separated, but TMZ reports that Russell Brand may have blindsided Katy Perry by filing the divorce petition. Stay tuned.
