For John Mayer, dating famous women is nothing new. The musician has been linked with a number of notable ladies, and it looks like he might be back with one of them. When the singer celebrated his 35th birthday on October 16, he was joined by fellow star Katy Perry. John has been linked to Katy since the summer, but they reportedly ended things in August. However, the two have been spotted together multiple times recently, and that is a sign that they might be exploring a romance once again. Over the years, John has developed a somewhat negative image when it comes to women. His ongoing feud with Taylor Swift is the most recent evidence of that. Is he turning a corner with Katy? History doesn't suggest that he is quite ready to do that. Here is a look at some of John's other notable relationships over the years.
John began dating the "Friends" beauty in 2008, and the two had a turbulent romance that played out over the next year. Their first run lasted for about four months, but that was hardly the end of it. John, who is nearly a decade younger than Jen, addressed their first split by saying that he would rather be alone if something doesn't feel right. The two got back together after that, but split for good in the spring of 2009. Not long after that, John began his relationship with Taylor.
Jessica had several notable relationships after her divorce from Nick Lachey, and one of those was with John. The two began dating in 2006, and stayed together for about nine months. They finally ended their relationship in May of 2007, though some wondered if it was over for good. "They have broken up," says the source at the time. "But they have broken up and gotten back together at least 10 times before." The two didn't end up together after all, and both moved on shortly after the split.
John dated the "Party of Five" star in 2002, making it one of his first celebrity relationships. The brief romance didn't last long, but it did appear in the news long after it ended. In 2008, John was forced to apologize to his former flame after a controversial comedy routine that poked fun at their relationship. "It really was me making fun of myself," said John of the bit, which focused on his claims that the two never had sex.
