WHAT: Katy Perry and John Mayer Have Broken UpS

Katy Perry and John Mayer have broken up after an endless stream of engagement rumors, one insufferable love song and several gossip site meltdowns prompted by the vision of Katy Perry wearing an extremely large diamond on her ring finger. If anything proves that we live in a dark and chaotic world ruled over by the whims of cruel and capricious forces, it is probably not this. But still! I really thought they were going to make it!

A source close to the pair told E! News that the couple is officially dunzo — also, the wild-eyed crooner responsible for "Your Body Is a Wonderland" was notably absent from Katy's side during a recent trip to London and Milan. It was, as one might expect, Katy Perry's doing. RIP Katy Perry and John Mayer's love. We will miss you. [E!]

Jared Leto's other Oscars date is maybe a wet man-bun. [The Cut]
