John Mayer confirmed his breakup from Katy Perry to Ellen DeGeneres on her show.
"It was a private relationship during and it’s a private relationship, still," Mayer told DeGeneres when asked about his breakup from Perry. "I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing.”
But, could their be more to the breakup than just tricky coupling? According to reports, Mayer was jealous of Perry's friendship with ex-husband, Russell Brand.
“Sure, Katy was unhappy that John constantly flirted with other girls and played up his heartbreaker image, even when she was standing next to him," a source said. “But, Katy gave it back. She knew that she could push John’s buttons by comparing his flaws to what she saw was great in Russell, which he hated! Katy and Russell still talk to one another, and that was another thing that irked John. He’s never been in a relationship where he wasn’t the main focus all the time and it bothered him."
