John Mayer has not been telling his friends that Katy Perry wants him back after she wished his dad a happy birthday on Instagram, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

Mayer shared an Instagram photo earlier this month from his father’s 90th birthday celebration, and asked his fans to “leave doting comments about my dad below.” Perry was among the singer’s followers to do so, writing, “Looking fantastic as ever! Happy birthday friend.” An article posted on OK!’s website now alleges Mayer’s “inflated ego” has him convinced that his ex-girlfriend posted the message because she’s still in love with him.

A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “John’s conceited enough to believe his own fantasies. He’s carried a torch for Katy since they broke up… and he assumes she wants him back.” The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “John sees himself as God’s gift to women. Someone needs to bring him back down to earth. She merely reacted to the sweet post he placed for his dad’s birthday. It wasn’t a proposal or anything.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Mayer didn’t interpret Perry’s message as an indication that she wants him back, nor has he been making such a claim to his pals. This is simply a non-story. In fact, it seems the writers at OK! are the ones still hung up on the exes’ relationship, as we’ve repeatedly called out the tabloid for publishing inaccurate reports about the pair.

Gossip Cop busted the outlet earlier this year when it falsely claimed Mayer sent roses to Perry following her split from Orlando Bloom. Shortly after that piece of fiction, we corrected a similarly bogus story about Mayer wanting to get back together with Perry. This latest article surrounding the ex-couple is equally phony.
