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.

John Mayer has taken to Twitter this week to celebrate the fact he has been alcohol-free for the past 12 months.

In a move which ignited a reasoned and thoughtful conversation on Twitter, the singer revealed that his decision has made an incredible positive impact on his life.

"One year ago today, I decided to give drinking a break," he wrote in a post which has been liked 48,000 times in just two days.

"A very personal thing for everyone. For me, a constant return on investment," he added.

John explained that his reason for sharing the anniversary is to remind his fans and followers that abstinence is an option for everyone.

"I post this because I want people to know that “that’s enough for now” is on the menu, so to speak," he explained.

John has been inundated with support since the upload, with one person considering the impact the post will have on those who come across it.

"I’d like to think that someone out there is one day away from their 1 year and saw your post today and will now make tomorrow happen!"

"I'd like to think that someone read this and is going to start their 1 year today," added another.

John's post acted as a catalyst for followers to discuss the various ways sobriety effected them, with one writing: "I learned that I didn't need alcohol to cope with my problems or chronic back pain. There are other healthy ways to do that."

"Counselling helps — I'd recommend it. Working out at a gym or going for a walk when you have an urge to drink. It's not easy but worth it," she added.

During the summer, John revealed that alcohol rarely satiated him, telling Rolling Stone: "Drinking is a f*cking con. How much is enough?"

"Every time I drank, I was looking for some sort of regulated amount. It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard. ‘I said two, now it's three, now we're at four."


He’s been linked to Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, but it seems John Mayer could now have his eye on pop princess Demi Lovato.

The famous pair were spotted getting close in an exclusive rooftop restaurant and club in West Hollywood over the weekend, with sources saying the Gravity singer had his arm wrapped around the 24-year-old Confident star.

An eyewitness told Us Weekly: “John had his arm around Demi and was whispering sweet nothings into her ear.”

“She was into it,” they continued.  “They weren’t making out or anything, but she was giggling the whole time.”

Another insider told the site that the performers “chatted it up for over an hour”, with the 39-year-old suggesting that Demi “has one of the greatest voices”.

Way back in 2009, the stars were caught flirting on Twitter after the singer-songwriter tweeted the former Disney star a compliment about her music.

Sounds like this could be one to watch!


She mightn’t have made the Emmys last night, but that doesn’t mean Taylor Swift didn’t manage to make things awkward for her recent ex Tom Hiddleston.

Last night at the star studded event Tom impressed everyone by returning to his pre-Hiddleswift state of hotness, but unfortunately for the actor even his very dapper suit couldn’t stop the Internet from finding a link between him and his famous ex.

After presenting the award for Best Directing in a Limited Series to Susanne Bier for her work on The Night Manager, Tom was played off stage by another of Taylor’s former flames, John Mayer.

While the Bad Blood singer and American singer-songwriter only dated briefly in 2009, Twitter users could not ignore the show’s producers’ clever decision to move the camera from Tom to John as Mr Mayer strummed his guitar for the actor’s descent off stage.

One viewer wrote: “Emmy for directing a limited series goes to whoever directed the camera directly from Tom Hiddleston to John Mayer.”

While others suggested that the song John had been playing was called The Thrill Is Gone.

Whoever organised this one is a genius!

Considering he's dated gorgeous and talented women like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, you wouldn't think John Mayer would need the help of a dating app to find love.

However, according to Perez, he's now signed up to one.

But now, this isn't your usual Tinder or Plenty Of Fish, no,no. This one is for famous "creative types."

The dating app called Raya is home to celebs like Chelsea Handler and Matthew Perry, and you also need to be approved by a council to get in.

An insider told the website, "His profile is a slide show of photos set to a Neil Young song." Interesting.

We hope he finds his soulmate!


Taylor Swift is the queen of serial dating in Hollywood, having sparked a new romance with English hottie, Tom Hiddleston. 

The Blank Space singer recently called it quits on a 15-month long relationship with DJ Calvin Harris, and is already back in love with a new man.

Almost like a dating chameleon, Taylor seems to re-vamp her personal style with every new fella she gets. 

Cutie pie

Ah, the early days. Back in 2008, Taylor dated boy-bander Joe Jonas, and embodied the concept of a pop princess.

Tay was always seen wearing precious pastel numbers, and always looked like the All American princess that she is.

High school sweetheart

When Tay Swift started dating Taylor Lautner in 2009, her style remained very sweet, and American.

She was seen donning more athletic looks, similar to those Taylor Lautner wore.

Dressing down

Taylor had a brief fling with actor, Jake Gyllenhaal in 2010, which saw her dressing down in a major way, and wearing a lot of dark blues JUST LIKE Jake. 


Darker times

Things changed for Taylor in 2009, when she started a fling with singer-songwriter (and professional bad boy) John Mayer.

Taylor ditched the pretty dresses that she had become known for, and began opting for darker silhouettes, perhaps to match John's #darksoul.

Political stance

Taylor dated political heir, Conor Kennedy for a few months in 2012, and totally embraced her inner Jackie O with midi skirts and floral prints.

Casual cool 

Moving on from the dark shades of John Mayer, T Swift dated our favourite One Direction boy, Harry Styles in 2012.

This relationship involved a laid back approach to style, with Tay seen rocking jeans, jackets and comfortable knitwear throughout.

Getting sexy

Taylor left her princess status behind her when she started dating Calvin Harris in 2015.

We saw daring hem lines, plunging necklines and general sassiness in her style. Taylor also got a major chop, ditching her long blond locks for a more grown up bob. 

Matchy matchy

Taylor's latest beau is English actor, and absolute BABE, Tom Hiddleston.

Nicknamed "Hiddleswift" by the media, the couple have been spotted wearing matching quilted jackets and jeans while out and about. 



Some of us put a lot of effort into creating the perfect environment for the no-pants-dance and others are total wham, bam, thank you ma'am merchants who wouldn't know a scented candle or John Legend track if it bit them on the arse.

If you're the latter and hoping to inject a little romance into your sex life, you might want to take a leaf out of John Mayer and Khloé Kardashian's books who swear by a solid sex playlist.

After hearing that the youngest Kardashian sister likes to get her grind on to John's cover of Beyoncé's XO, the 38-year-old singer decided to add to the conversation by offering some handy hints and tips when choosing a playlist for the bedroom.

Appearing last night on What What Happens Live, John reminded us that our partners need to really consider the length of their playlist…for obvious reasons.

"I think if you're a guy at least, and you have a playlist, it should be a really long playlist," he told host Andy Cohen after insisting he was flattered that Khloé included his cover in her bedside collection.

"If you're shuffling and the song comes up twice, you wanna make sure you get through a good portion of the songs," he advised.

Sage advice John, sage advice.



This week, Zayn Malik allegedly threw shade Taylor Swift's way – retweeting a message that implied the songstress is more focused on making money than using her fame for good.

It was a move that prompted Tay-Tay's boyf Calvin Harris to launch a full-on attack on the former One Directioner… though the Scottish DJ later relayed somewhat, complimenting Mr Malik on his "great voice". 

Still, it's certainly not the first time that 25-year-old Ms Swift has been involved in a tiff. In fact, trouble and feuding seems to follow the singer-songwriter.

Here, we chronicle the highs and lows of her top six fall-outs:


Taylor Vs Katy:

The original feud! We can hardly remember what kicked it all off at this stage – something to do with Katy, 30, allegedly stealing her former friend's dancers for a world tour (why were the dancers so eager to leave, we'd like to know).

And even now, it seems it's the stand-off that refuses to die-down.

In fact, just late last month, Ms Swift brought on stage with her during a concert in Massachusetts an over-sized shark – a prop Katy famously used during her Super Bowl performance. She evidently thought it was hilarious; others were less enthused.

Of course after Taylor's high-profile Bad Blood video, we're guessing that a kiss-and-make-up scenario isn't on the cards anytime soon. 


Taylor Vs Miley:

We love that Ms Cyrus, 22, speaks her mind – and speak her mind she certainly did during a recent interview with Marie Clare.

“I don’t get the violence revenge thing,” the singer said referring to Taylor's Bad Blood video. “That’s supposed to be a good example?

"And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my titties out? I’m not sure how titties are worse than guns.”

Now, HollywoodLife.com reports that Ms Swift knows Miley doesn't like her (FYI: Katy and Ms Cyrus are mates – and Tay-Tay thinks the former turned the latter against her).

In fact, Swifty is SERIOUSLY concerned that the Wrecking Ball singer is going to have a pop at her at the VMAs in two weeks' time: Miley is presenting; Taylor is up for nine awards.

We can't wait. 


Taylor Vs Nicki

Speaking of the VMAs – Taylor was left red-faced when she assumed Nicki Minaj's VMA Twitter rant was about her (it's not always all about you, Tay-Tay).

Ms Minaj, 32, had been complaining that her mega-hit Anaconda didn't get a Best Video nomination (which actually does seem a bit strange). 

"If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies," her online complaint began, "you will be nominated for vid of the year." Cue Taylor jumping in, taking it all personal. 

Predictably, within 24hours Katy Perry just couldn't resist elbowing her way into the situation with her own online contribution. 

Wowsers. Anyway – Twitter went properly into meltdown over the whole situation, and Tays later took a chill pill and admitted that she had probably jumped to conclusions.

She also invited Ms Minaj to join her on stage "anytime," (pretty sure the woman sells out her own concerts, mind). The duo subsequently seem to be on good terms – for the moment anyway. 


Taylor Vs John

The Pennsylvanian singer and a guitar-weilding John Mayer had a brief romance – although things didn't end too well. Then she wrote a song, Dear John, which he claims is a bit mean.

Lines include: "Don't you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?" and "I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules every day."

These days, Mr Mayer says she just ignores him.

"You can see me at the Grammys doing what I do best, being avoided by Taylor Swift," the 37-year-old said while hosting the Late, Late Show back in February.

John and a certain Katy Perry, of course, have had an on-off thing since 2012 – which probably doesn't help matters.  


Taylor Vs Apple and Spotify

Taylor famously withdrew her music from Spotify because she says they weren't giving her enough dough – though the likes of U2, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney don't seem to mind. Anyhoo, her argument is: "Music is art, and art is important and rare.

"Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for."

So, what's the alternative? Well, funny you ask… because in early June Apple began its music streaming service – a platform that, until Tay-Tay bemoaned its payment policy just a few weeks after its launch, many folk were unfamiliar with.

"We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation," she said in an open letter.

The tech corporation quickly did a U-turn, as confirmed by executive Eddy Cue on Twitter.

And so in the end everyone involved seemed rather happy – especially the woman herself, who just days after the incident announced that she'd be releasing her mega-selling 1989 album… on Apple. Yup, everyone's happy, so.


Taylor Vs Tina Fey AND Amy Poehler

We hardly know where to look – comediennes Tina and Amy are living legends, after all. But a couple of years ago, Swifty just didn't find them all that funny 

Why? Well, the duo were hosting the Golden Globes in 2013, peppering the gig with plenty of tongue-in-cheek gags. Over the course of the evening, they even made fun of Miss Taylor's dating history.

Tays didn't seem to see the funny side though and later told Vanity Fair: "there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."


In contrast, for example, the likes of Hollywood legend Leonardo DiCaprio managed to smile and say nadda at the receiving end of similarly scathing remarks.

Indeed, last year he did just that when Ms Fey announced his arrival on the Golden Globes stage with the properly hilarious: “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio…"




They may only have broken up back in March, but it looks like things are already back on track for Katy Perry and John Mayer.

The pair were spotted looking every bit the happy couple on Saturday night as they cuddled and laughed their way through a Fourth of July gig by legendary rockers The Grateful Dead, according to TMZ. Fans were quick to post pictures of the pair on social media, like this one that popped up on Twitter:

Other fans reported seeing the pair enjoying themselves at the concert:

Although Katy didn't reference her cosy evening with John on her own social media profiles, she did subtly allude to her date night by posting this colourful picture of her hand holding a bunch of roses with the caption, "grateful."

This is the third time that Katy and John have reconnected after a break-up. Earlier this year they split following a brief reunion, and sources say the main reason for the split was Katy's busy touring schedule. "John can’t handle the lack of attention, and she can’t handle the trust issues she has when she’s so far away," an insider told RadarOnline at the time.

It was also rumoured that Katy suspected John may have cheated on her while she was away and he was in Los Angeles, though this was never officially confirmed.

Now that the pop star's schedule has calmed down, it seems the pair are trying to rekindle their romance. 



It's long been taken as fact that singer John Mayer was not just a total player, but a fully-fledged sex addict too – but he says that's not the case.

At the height of his playboy ways, the star dated (and broke the hearts of) a string of high-profile women, from Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift to Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Despite having once described Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm," the singer has spoken out in an interview claiming he is not in fact addicted to sex… or women… or breaking hearts.

When asked by interviewer Ronan Farrow on the TODAY Show if he considered himself a womanizer, John answered with a vehement "no," adding, "Absolutely not."

No ladies, he's an ego addict, and admits he is constantly seeking validation. "The only way that I can be sure that I don't relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction — every day. So, I do the Grammys and I go home cause if I stayed, I'd get high again… You've already looked through Twitter, everybody goes, 'It's great,' and then you're low again because you can't stop looking. So, I'm a recovered ego addict."

The singer says he was misunderstood in previous interviews when he was "out of touch" and "being a ham," but that he never intended anybody to think of him as a "womanizer."

If he was given the chance to meet himself as a younger man, John said he would most likely think, "'That guy's really, really talented, but I don't want to be anywhere near him when that thing goes off!' There was never a shot of doing this perfectly. It was never in the cards."

So does he still seek validation? Well, he tries not to. "I will not check Twitter [after this interview]," he told Ronan. "But I check the mirror. The original Twitter."

Whatever works for you, John. Just don't go messing with our pals Taylor and Katie, alright?!


With so much talk of the rivalry between her and Katy Perry, we would have expected the mother of all disses against Taylor Swift to come from the California Girls star.

Suffice to say we were wrong, because that diss was delivered by none other than Taylor’s ex – and Katy’s on/off boyfriend – John Mayer.

The singer was making his final guest host appearance on The Late Late Show last night, and it seems he just couldn’t resist getting a dig in at Taylor before his presenting run came to a close.

Bringing up the subject of this weekend’s Grammy Awards, the Who You Love singer joked: “You can see me at the Grammys doing what I do best, being avoided by Taylor Swift.”

He went on to demonstrate exactly what such a snub looks like, before adding: “That won’t make the internet at all”.

He dated Taylor back in 2009, before breaking up with her (and reportedly leaving her hreartbroken in the process), inspiring her song Dear John.

With rumours rife that Mayer is back with Katy Perry once again, perhaps this was a burn they concocted together.

Check out the video below.



After Katy Perry was spotted on a dinner date with John Mayer in LA last week, speculation has been rife that the couple might be rekindling their romance.

Now sources close to the star have confirmed that the pair are indeed back on. "Katy is giving John another chance because she feels like there could be something there," said an insider.

The pair first began dating in 2012 shortly after Katy's divorce from English comedian Russel Brand. Their on-off relationship lasted almost two years but the couple split in early 2014, after Katy allegedly caught John cheating on her with fitness instructor Lauren McHale. Ouch.

But the singer seems willing to put the past behind her, despite warnings from pals that she is moving too fast. "Although her friends have warned her to be careful, she is already ignoring all of the red flags. She is not listening to anyone and is going into this full force," said the source.

John apparently began pursuing Katy "relentlessly" late last year after discovering she was dating music producer Diplo. Seeing the new couple together drove John "crazy," the source revealed.

The reunited couple have been spotted together numerous times in recent days. As well as last week's dinner date, Katy and John were also reportedly spotted kissing and holding hands at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood over the weekend.

We hope John has learnt his lesson this time around!
