John Mayer seems to consistently have a swirl of rumours surrounding his love life, and now there are whispers of a potential spark with none other than Kourtney Kardashian.
The singer is renowned for his long list of ex-girlfriends who include Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift. He caught up with radio show host Andy Cohen on SiriusXM's Radio Andy, and the two discussed the latest rumours plaguing the star.
The Gravity singer had some things to clarify, namely that he has met Kourtney Kardashian but they have zero plans to date, as of yet.
Mayer and Kardashian apparently originally met back in December at a party, which sparked the romance rumours. One source from E! News claimed at the time;
"They connected, but Kourtney really didn't think twice about it. Kourtney thinks John is definitely charming but they don't have any scheduled plans to see each other as of now."
The Poosh founder, who is single after breaking up with model Younes Bendjima, "is going with the flow of her dating life." Mayer has now explained that the dating rumours "happen not to be true."
The pair crossed paths at the GQ Men of the Year bash, at which Mayer admitted he "crashed towards the end." He turned on the charm when he met Kourtney, and flirtatious banter undoubtedly ensued.
The insider who asserts to have seen them heard Mayer say to Kardashian, "It was sweet serendipity running into you." What an absolute MINX.
Mayer seemed happy enough to have the rumours floating around, but he took umbrage at the quotes being changed;
"I would never say that!" he told Cohen. "But if you're getting paid to write the story and you listen to every John Mayer song and say, 'What's the next thing he might say based on all the lyrics?' it might be 'It was sweet serendipity running into you.' But I didn't say that because that's hyper-corny."
The 41-year-old spoke the truth of their interaction, and it basically was just a chat about rock band The Scorpions…
"I ran into the bass player from The Scorpions and his name was Klaus or something. I don't think it was Klaus but it was close. I said, 'Klaus it was sweet serendipity running into you.'"
Mayer continued, "He started throwing me in a video and I was hamming it up because I love The Scorpions and then Kourtney Kardashian walks up. I said, 'Kourtney walk away. This is the bass player from The Scorpions and he's going to try to get you in his video' cause he was already like 'Hey Kourtney, come be in my video.'"
Mayer essentially just blocked a band from getting a Kardashian in their music video;
"All I did was save Kourtney Kardashian from being in a video with the bass player from The Scorpions." He referred to that as a "far better story than 'sweet serendipity.'"
The artist did call the beginnings of the romance story "diabolical and genius," which is a bit gas. There wasn't a meet-cute, but he did share his feelings on the famous family.
"Look, I actually like the Kardashians," he said. "If you break it down to your interactions with them, they're very nice people. So any objection to them is more philosophical, and I really don't have a philosophical objection to people that I don't get on with every day."
Mayer had a world of hilarious praise for momager Kris Jenner, even calling her "the Yoda of Hollywood serotonin," but expressed his fear of her at the same time;
"I don't want to be noticed by Kris Jenner too much. I want a nice base level of respect but I don't want to be too far on her radar. She could end me." He's dead right.
