The ugly side of dating Katy Perry Getty Images Phil Archbold Turning down the chance to date Katy Perry is the kind of decision that most warm-blooded males would spend a lifetime regretting, though — as her ex-partners have all come to learn in one way or another — trouble is never far away in paradise, especially when that paradise is LA. The Cali girl's hit-list is a who's who of Hollywood stars and prominent musicians, though after several failed relationship attempts both before and after the breakdown of her marriage , Perry is currently single and ready to mingle in the way only she knows how.
But is that good news for the eligible bachelors out there, or a reason to run and hide? From crazy grudges to outrageous flirting, this is the ugly side of dating Katy Perry. The year before their divorce was finalized, news emerged of Perry's apparent distrust of air-hostesses, brought on by her husband's fetish for them.
Three of Brand's former squeezes worked for top airlines, and according to Daily Mail Perry would refuse to be served by female staff while crossing the Atlantic.
On her last flight a female pilot came over to say hello, which was bearable, but she's not so keen on the hostesses. The honeymoon period didn't last very long, however, and before long the green-eyed monster was rearing its ugly head. A friend of the actor told Radar Online that Bloom had always kept female friends and he wasn't about to change that, despite Perry's objections. Katy was constantly getting jealous about everything he did.
In fact, Russell Brand did marry her and even he couldn't escape the wrath of her pen when the two parted ways. When the scorned singer was asked to open the 57th Grammy Awards , she decided to do so with a performance of her ballad "By The Grace of God," a song that reveals intimate details about Brand's part in the breakdown of their union. Compared to those before him, he got off easy. Perry's history of dissing her exes in her music goes back to her high school days, when she used to crush on curly-haired quarterback Shane Lopes.
Radar Online revealed exclusive details of a homecoming gig Perry put on at her former Santa Barbara school, during which she spotted the former footballer in the crowd. But you never wanted to date me, it was always Amanda Wayne. Oh yeah, you really chose right honey. What's up now, player. I'm going to dedicate this next one to Shane Lopes everyone. Online source who claimed the pair were having "sleepovers" together.
It has been going on for a while. That is what led me to this new awakening, this realizing, if I don't do some self-love, I'm not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. According to a source via Jezebel , Perry was forced to leave the troubled young star for the good of her career after he started getting into trouble.
Considering the circumstances of his untimely demise, it was the right move on Parry's part—Lewis allegedly murdered his elderly landlord and her cat before accidentally falling to his death. The news came from a camp insider who told E! Online that she was calling time on the relationship, with details later emerging in US Weekly via Daily Mail that she did so in order to concentrate on her career. What wasn't clear at this stage was just how serious she was.
The couple had split up and reunited in the past, and most people were expecting this to be just another bump in the road, but as weeks turned to months it became clear that wasn't going to be the case. The Sun reported that Perry was actively ignoring Mayer, with a source close to her revealing that several text messages and phone calls went unanswered. Perry's unnamed acquaintance confirmed earlier reports that her music was coming first from now on and Mayer would only slow her down.
She thinks that a relationship will complicate things right now. With the ink still wet on her divorce papers, Perry was spotted with the tattooed rocker at Coachella looking very much smitten, however poor Rob ended up being nothing but a rebound. A friend of Perry confirmed as much via E! Online when she said that Ackroyd was "just a distraction" for the 'Firework' singer. She admits she's a flirt Getty Images Perry later came out in defence of her treatment of the strapping Florence guitarist during an insightful interview with USA Today , in which she reiterated the fact that there was never a label on whatever they had.
I can make the happy ending myself. Rumors that she was taking advantage of Kristen Stewart's exposed affair and getting her claws into Robert Pattinson began to circulate after the two crashed a wedding rehearsal together, shocking loose-lipped guests.
The pair were later spotted "heavily flirting" at the premiere for Pattinson's film The Rover, though, according to one Hollywood Life eyewitness, Perry left the after party because she "wasn't getting the attention from Rob that she thought she should be getting. Their source reported that Perry seemed very interested in the currently eligible bachelor. Then he took off but came later for more flirting.
The "Shake It Off" singer seemingly confirmed these claims without actually naming Perry, admitting in an interview with Rolling Stone that it wasn't about a guy. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. She and Perry's future squeeze John Mayer had a fling in that ended with Mayer dumping Swift, who fired back with her song "Dear John.
This isn't the only chip Perry has on her shoulder because of an ex-boyfriend, either. She was recently accused of attempting to sabotage Selena Gomez's relationship with YouTuber-turned-megastar The Weeknd, reportedly calling the musician for a flirt in revenge for Gomez spending time with Orlando Bloom.
Gomez met the Pirates of the Caribbean star at the We Day California event in , though Perry apparently begrudged their friendship.
She had only been seeing the DJ for a month when she apparently "freaked out" about the idea of meeting his parents, according to an InTouch exclusive. Perry's u-turn came after Diplo's mother gave an interview to Radar Online in which she said the "California Gurls" singer would have to be "grilled by the mom" before the family would give their seal of approval.
Funny thing is, she doesn't seem to mind making her partners go through the same ordeal. Back when she and Orlando Bloom were still an item, she put him through not one, but two such awkward in-law events. The singer asked Bloom to attend the family's Thanksgiving celebration the photos she uploaded to her Instagram reveal that she threw him in at the deep end—he's wearing a onesie and cradling a baby and then brought him along on a family Christmas vacation. Perry has also stated on numerous occasions that she doesn't have any intention of starting her own family in near future, which was a catalyst in the breakdown of her marriage to Brand.
I think it was part of, If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice, I'd have to be home more. According to SheKnows , it takes a whole lot of makeup and a whole lot of patience. When Perry's Prismatic World Tour hit Europe, details of her insane rider demands began to get leaked to the media, with British newspaper Daily Star getting the scoop on her backstage diva behavior.
The superstar who has previously admitted she has her assistant take care of her dog so she doesn't have to pick up doo-doo reportedly expected custom-made French lamps for her dressing room, a director's chair with her name on it and a member of staff there just to cut her fresh fruit and veg. Well, they either have to deal with it or get lost, because she hasn't got the time to deal with anyone's issues but her own.
