In case you were wondering, Katy Perry and John Mayer are still a thing, and they've even taken a step forward in the romance with a public display of holiday spirit. The pair posed separately with Santa on Wednesday night at the Broadway production of "A Christmas Story: The Musical," with Katy looking appropriately festive in an unflattering knitted number, and Mayer attempting to smile in a plaid coat. They also gamely posed together with the show's cast.
Meanwhile, in a story we urge you to take with a boulder of salt, In Touch claims that the doll-faced popster has been texting "How ya doin'?" messages to ex-husband Russell Brand but "hiding it from John," because he "would freak out if he knew," according to a snitch.
Katy purportedly believes it's "healthy and constructive to have closure and to be friends with Russell" after their abrupt split, says the source, who fails to point out that allegedly hiding such "healthy and constructive" communication from one's current squeeze is anything but.
