It looks like Katy Perry has ditched her “rebound Romeo” Robert Pattinson as she was spied out on the town, or more accurately, attending the 87 year-old Don Rickles’ Friars Roast with her old flame John Mayer.
Looks as though the couple are at that “on again” stage of their relationship once more.
But the 28 year-old singer must be suffering from amnesia, because we would swear that she just told Vogue magazine that she and Mayer were over. Sure she also said that she was “madly in love with him,” but she also referred to him as a broken bird!
On Monday night, the two were spotted hitting the town together hand in hand at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York to help the Friars Foundation honour comedian and actor Don Rickles with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Comedy.
But Katy Perry wasn’t the only star there, other celestial celebrities included Bob Newhart, Robert De Niro, Joan Rivers and John Stamos. De Niro must be starting a new career attending Roasts for the comically inclined, he also attended the Mel Brooks award Roasting.
But though the occasion was set up for the bald funny man to get his “royal roasting” it seems that Katy and John couldn’t be bothered to look at the stage, they had eyes only for each other. So Katy Perry sans Robert Pattinson and out on the town with her old flame seems to equal a consensual and mutual forgiveness between the two “lovebirds.”
According to a fellow audience member of the Rickles Roast, “During dinner, Katy and John looked at each other like they were the only people in the room. Katy didn’t stop smiling and John kept whispering in her ear. A few times, their faces were so close it looked like they were about to kiss, but they didn’t. They were very intimate and seemed very much in love.”
The two sat at the same table as Joan Rivers and another fellow audience member had this to say about the romantic couple, “They were very much together. It was a date night.” Before their meal was served, the couple took a few pictures with soldiers.
So it appears that Katy just can’t quit John Mayer.
This public outing comes just two months after their second breakup. The couple had reunited at Perry’s brand-new Hollywood Hills home on May 27 for a Memorial Day barbecue. According to a source at the time, “They seem to be back together — or back together-ish. They were very flirty and having a really good time together. They have good chemistry.”
But when Katy was interviewed for her July Vogue cover, she stated that she and Mayer were no longer seeing each other. Although, the Part of Me singer spoke kindly of him, saying, “I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,” the once-wed singer told the magazine. “All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind.”
She added, “Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
Apparently, it was Robert Pattinson’s broken bird impression that caused Katy to flock to his side after his breakup with Kristin Stewart. But Perry heading out on the town sans Robert seems to be saying that his wings weren’t broken enough.
