Katy Perry was considering eloping with John Mayer at one time, her friend has claimed.

The two singers began dating late in 2012, however relationship was on / off for the next number of years. It was regularly claimed that John’s disinterest for making things official was the situation, something Katy’s friend Robert Tencer has secured.

“None people are surprised to view things with Katy and John finally fizzle out,” he told Britain’s Heat magazine. “It’s mad, but in 2009 she was dealing with eloping with him, but he just never committed fully and will not support her. She’d have to go to events by herself. John was such as a ghost in the life.”

The star has now progressed with Orlando Bloom. Although they haven’t publicly confirmed their relationship, the newest couple are actually spotted out together on several occasions and Katy is apparently enjoying being open about her relationship.

It’s even been claimed the 31-year-old singer has met the actor’s five-year-old son Flynn, something Robert – who’s known Katy for several years – loves.

“Katy makes a great mom and has now always of kids,” he enthused. “She has always pointed out wanting marriage and babies. Anyone who thinks it’s to soon for her to meet up with Orlando’s kid is wrong. Orlando ticks a great deal of boxes for Katy – she loves those dark , brooding looks, he’s talented and the man treats her being a lady. Katy loved British guys.”

The feeling appears to be mutual, that has a pal of Orlando’s suggesting Katy is really his perfect woman.

“Katy’s everything Orlando likes – smart, talented and gorgeous,” the insider said. “Everyone thought this might be merely another of his conquests, but introducing Flynn to Katy would have been a big step, and none individuals are in any doubt he’s absolutely serious about her.”
