Once upon a time, Katy Perry and John Mayer were dating. Then they weren't. And then they wereÂ—again. Rumor has it that, at some point during all that confusion, La Perry was spotted purchasing a pregnancy test. Oops. Yes, the ex Mrs. Russell Brand apparently feared she'd been knocked up by John Mayer. Eewww.
Interestingly, according to sources, Perry and Mayer had been using protection, but perhaps they had an accident. Or maybe Katy just wanted to make sure she absolutely, positively would not bear the spawn of theÂ—erÂ—John Mayer's child.
"Katy had a panic attack and was scared she could be pregnant...," revealed an insider, "she wanted to take a test to calm her mind,"
Fortunately, for everyone concernedÂ—especially KatyÂ—the test was negative. La Perry's relief must have been unimaginable. Few things are more upsetting than the thought of an unwanted pregnancy. The thought of an unwanted pregnancy by John Mayer is definitely one of them.
Of course, the question now is: Was the Part of Me singer's pregnancy scare the real reason she and Mayer broke up for a few days last month? It's possible. At the time, most reports assumed that Mayer had simply kicked the "Teenage Dream" girl to the curb after the requisite number of "sexy times," as is his custom. But maybe not. Perhaps Perry called it quitsÂ—or at least called a hiatus in the relationship until she could be sure there were no reproductive shenanigans in the works.
So, there you have it. What's next for Katy Perry and her unattractive boyfriend is anybody's guess. Stay tuned.
