Does John Mayer want Katy Perry back? That’s what a tabloid is claiming now that the pop star is single again. Gossip Cop looked into the story.

The allegation can be found in the new issue of OK!, which writes, “It’s only been a few weeks since Katy Perry split from Orlando Bloom, but an insider reveals that her ex, professional playboy John Mayer, is already making his move to win her back.” That so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “John recently reached out to Katy, offering to be a shoulder to cry on, but his intentions are obvious. Sure enough, by the end of the call he was asking if she wanted to meet up.”

According to the magazine, Perry “hasn’t yet agreed” to a hangout, but “may give in.” The outlet’s supposed source insists the exes are “talking often,” and Katy “never stopped loving John.” Contends the alleged tipster, “The only reason they broke up was that he wasn’t ready to commit. He says he’s ready to give up bachelorhood now. He’ll do it whatever it takes.”

That leads OK! to opine, “Sounds like there are still some fireworks there!” Sure, if you believe tabloid fantasy. This is a typical gossip magazine storyline: When a celebrity becomes single, link him or her to an ex. And Gossip Cop has exclusively confirmed this tale is just what the publication wants to see happen, not what’s actually happening.

Though Perry and Mayer had an on-and-off relationship, it doesn’t mean it’s going to swing back to the “on” position. Mayer isn’t looking to reunite with Perry right now, and anyone suggesting otherwise is reading more into a situation that doesn’t currently exist.
