Katy Perry, John Mayer Were "Fighting" Pre-Split
Katy Perry sounded wistful about romance on Friday, March 22. Three days after Us Weekly broke news of her breakup with John Mayer, the pop songstress, 28, shared a sad love song with her nearly 34 million Twitter followers. "Perfectly put, by Tristan Prettyman," Perry wrote, sharing Prettyman's piano-driven breakup ballad "I Was Gonna Marry You."
But according to multiple sources close to Perry and Mayer, 35, the split seemed inevitable. On top of many work commitments -- Perry's third studio album, Mayer's upcoming tour dates -- the on-and-off couple have been "fighting" recently, one source close to the "Heartbreak Warfare" rocker says. Dating since July with a brief August split, the pair seemed to fast-track things in late 2012 and early 2013, with Perry spending time at his Montana ranch and Mayer celebrating the holidays with her family in Santa Barbara.
"Introducing her to his dad was a big deal," the Mayer source says. "It was just too much, too soon," another insider adds.
Still, some are cautioning that the pair could reconcile. "They've broken up before so it's hard to tell," a pal points out. "She's changed a lot since she's been with him . . . [you] can't argue that she has been in love."
