The new duo were spotted leaving the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood together on August 1. John, 34, who in the past has dated, among others, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift and Minka Kelly, seemed deep in conversation with the pop star, who recently divorced Russell Brand.
“Katy was dressed in a low-key white dress and the whole thing seemed very relaxed,” says a witness. “They both seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
The new relationship seems to have been brewing for some time. In June, the singers were reportedly spotted at LA’s Soho House engaged in some heavy-duty flirty. Katy, 27, had been seen with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, but that seemed like just a rebound romance after her marriage collapsed.
“For me, right now, I’m totally not looking,” she said. “I’m just looking to heal. And I’m on that path. I’m not down on love.”
John, who is notorious for being loose-lipped about the women in his life, says that’s all in the past now. Let’s hope not! We want all the details.
