It looks like John Mayer is all but confirming Katy Perry’s new romance with Orlando Bloom.
Mayer appears to no longer be following his former girlfriend, Katy Perry, on Twitter, suggesting that the two are over for good amidst rumors that Katy has been growing increasingly close to Bloom in recent weeks.
Notably, Perry does still appear to be following John on the 140-character site, though it’s a different story across Katy’s other social media accounts. It’s what Perry’s not doing on Instagram that appears to confirm the two, who dated intermittently for three years, are officially over.
A number of Katy’s fans took to Twitter on February 9 to reveal that Perry allegedly unfollowed John on Instagram, with many speculating that Mayer may even have blocked Katy on the photo sharing site.

“I’m like 90% sure John has blocked Katy, or Katy’s unfollowed John,” Twitter user @Ast_ronaut alleged on February 9. “It’s too much of a coincidence it’s just his account that’s disappearing [sic]” @KatysHabibis also confirmed the social media drama, tweeting out, “Katy just unfollowed John on Instagram, do you hear me crying?”
Though neither Katy nor John have confirmed or denied rumors that they’re no longer looking to receive updates from one another on social media, Perry has used the Twitter to send a pretty strong relationship message in the past.
Following her split from her former husband Russell Brand in 2012, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Katy Perry famously unfollowed her ex-husband amidst their relationship drama, though Katy made no official mention of her decision to click the unfollow button at the time.
Katy’s most recent social media break-up comes after the “This Is How We Do” singer has been spotted getting increasingly cozy with actor Orlando Bloom in recent weeks.
Perry and Bloom’s blossoming relationship comes after weeks of sightings of the two together, which included a brief reunion at the Stella McCartney Autumn 2016 Presentation in January. But while the two appeared to be getting closer at the fashion event, E! Online reported at the time that there was nothing romantic between her and Orlando, as Perry was still in a relationship with John Mayer.
According to a source who spoke to the site last month, Perry and Mayer were “still very much together” when Katy attended the event on January 12, and Orlando even knew “that she is still with Mayer.”
But it was just this past weekend when the alleged couple were most recently seen together, and they very much looked every inch the happy couple.
According to Us Weekly, Katy appeared to be spending some quality time with Bloom and his son from his former marriage to Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, Flynn, when the threesome attended a birthday party at Robert Downey Jr.’s house on February 6.
The two were photographed leaving the event later that afternoon, where Perry was spotted in the back seat, keeping Orlando’s son entertained during the car journey. “Katy was entertaining Flynn so he wouldn’t get bored,” an eyewitness revealed to the Us Weekly, “It was a long drive and she was trying to make him laugh,” the source said.
Hollywood Life also spotted Katy and Orlando out in California just weeks ago, where the two appeared to be enjoying a date night at a show.
“They were out together in Culver City walking together, it looked like they were on a date,” an eyewitness who spotted the supposed couple told Hollywood Life. “[Katy] looked gorgeous and perfectly made up, but she wasn’t dressed up she was wearing jeans and boots.”
The site also reported that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom “weren’t holding hands” when they were spotted together in Culver City, “but they were walking very close together” and looked pretty “cozy” together.
