Katy Perry gave John Mayer the heave-ho because she caught the guitar-slinging Lothario cheating on her… AGAIN,” reports the National Enquirer. A so-called “source” tells the tab, “Katy finally had enough of John’s wandering eye,” noting, “He’s an incorrigible flirt who’s constantly chatting up other women, asking them for their phone numbers so he can text them.”

The purported “insider” adds, “Sometimes, he would even ask them out for drinks, and Katy got sick and tired of it.” The mag further claims that Mayer was “recently rumored to be getting cozy with pretty ‘Girls’ star Allison Williams,” saying the pair were “spotted together at a Manhattan fashion event in late January, and that was just about the last straw for Katy.”

Um… Perry and Williams are good friends, and have been spotted on a number of outings with Mayer and Williams’ longtime boyfriend, Ricky Van Veen. So it’s safe to say there’s NOTHING going on between Mayer and the “Girls” actress. And how did the “last straw” come in January, but Perry and Mayer didn’t split until March? Also, we’d like to point out that NOWHERE in this story does the magazine actual give a specific example of Mayer’s alleged straying. In any case, Gossip Cop checked in with a Mayer insider, who tells us the tab’s cheating claims are “not correct.”
