It was amicable...
US Weekly reports that Katy Perry and John Mayer have decided to stop being a couple, although they will remain friends. The split was "mutual" and "extremely amicable," as the two are still close, even though other sources claim they were "fighting" a lot before they ended things.
One of the reasons they split was reportedly Perry's touring schedule. A friend said that the pair "made the mature decision that it was the right time."
They have dated off and on since summer 2012. They were spotted together at the Grammys after-party at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. A source said at the time: "John and Katy were really cute together. [Mayer was] taking photos of everything and everybody. John seemed really comfortable with Katy's parents and her brother, too. They're very sweet together!"
Perry previously told Ellen DeGeneres in December that she and Mayer "have a lot of fun" because they have a lot in common.
She added: "We have music as an understanding and love between each other and we connect. It's like he understands what I do because he does the same thing. And so after a long day, if it's been tough, I don't really have to go into it. He just gets it."
