The Katy Perry-John Mayer saga continues. The pair, who reportedly split up last March, appear to be back on.
The singers were spotted holding hands Monday at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York as they were leaving the Friars Foundation's roast of comedian Don Rickles, 87, who received a lifetime achievement award for comedy. (Bob Newhart, Robert De Niro, Joan Rivers, Bob Saget, Kathy Griffin and John Stamos were also in attendance.)
Normally we wouldn't be so enthused by this bit of PDA, but it's unusual juxtaposed with her recent disclosure that she and Mayer were kaput. Perry herself, however, admitted that she was still "madly in love" with the singer, insisting that Mayer wasn't simply a rebound guy after she divorced comedian Russell Brand.
"I was madly in love with him," she said in Vogue's July 2013 issue.
"I still am madly in love with him. All I can say about that relationship is that he's got a beautiful mind .... Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds."
