John Mayer Dumped Katy Perry For “Getting Fat,” Claims Tabloid

Truth rating: 0

“John’s Message to Katy: ‘You’re Not Hot Enough!'” blares a headline from Star, which claims John Mayer dumped Katy Perry because she was “getting fat.”

A so-called “pal” of Perry tells the tabloid that the pop singer is “devastated,” revealing, “She is so confident, but as soon as she put on a few pounds, he was constantly putting her down.”

The mag further reports that “despite John’s shallow reasoning, insiders say a shattered Katy would still like to make it work.”

“She’s going to make sure she looks amazing,” says the purported “insider,” who adds, “She wants him to take her back.”


Just… wow.

This is by far one of the stupidest and most insulting stories Gossip Cop has come across in a while.

It’s so painfully obvious that Star has no idea what transpired between Mayer and Perry, and this superficial and ridiculous angle was the best it could come up with.

Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a Mayer insider, who tells us the tab’s story is “not correct.”
