Katy Perry's ex-boyfriend Johnny Lewis has been found dead.
The 28-year-old actor - who dated Katy for 18 months until March 2007 - is believed to have killed his 81-year-old landlady Catherine Davis before leaping to his death from his home in Los Angeles yesterday. The upstairs of the building had been ransacked and a cat had also been killed.
"It's a terrible tragedy as far as we're concerned and we're digging into the bottom of it. He appeared to have died from some type of fall, either from the stairway, or from the balcony, or from one of the roofs. The best we're piecing together now is that it appears that some type of altercation occurred inside of the house resulting in the death of the woman. Then this individual ran outside, had an altercation with a couple of neighbors, ran back into the house and by the time we got here, he had fallen or had somehow died on the driveway," said Los Angeles Police Department Spokesman Andrew Smith.
Officers initially responded to a 911 call that a woman was heard screaming. No motive for the killing is yet known.
Russell Brand thinks he and Katy Perry were "incompatible."
The British comic split from the "Teenage Dream" hitmaker last December after just 14 months of marriage and he thinks they were just too different for their relationship to work.
"Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it doesn't. But if you sort of sense there's an incompatibility, then in any relationship, regardless of the status of the individual, it is kind of best to go separate ways," he said.
The Arthur star - who has been liked to several women, including Spice Girls singer Geri Halliwell, since splitting from Katy - believes it is very important for couples to share interests. "I think if you're someone who is really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone else who's into mountain biking, and if you're really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who into Eastern mysticism. I think if you're a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble. I've been in a lot of trouble!" he said.
Katy Perry is "totally in love" with John Mayer.
The "Firework" singer is worrying her friends and family by getting increasingly close to the legendary lothario - who has previously dated Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston - but is falling "dangerously" towards something serious with him.
"Katy's friends and family haven't taken to John at all, in fact they are worried that she is headed for heartbreak. She's been telling everybody who cares to listen how great John is and it's clear that she is totally in love with him. At first, she was quite careful with John and said she wasn't ready for a relationship and just wanted to have fun. But now she appears to have fallen dangerously in love with him and her friends are concerned," a source said.
Those close to Katy believe any potential relationship could end in "disaster" for her. "Now that she has invested more feelings in John and has let her guard down, there's only one way this can end... in disaster!" the source added.
Katy Perry has given John Mayer a key to her Los Angeles home.
The relationship between the singers has heated up since they recently rekindled their romance following a brief split and Katy is so serious about John that she made the romantic gesture. "John thinks it is easier to stay in hotels rather than his own L.A. pad [when he visits from New York]. But Katy insists he should stay with her. She thinks it makes sense," a source told The Sun.
The pair recently took a trip to Las Vegas with friends and joked about getting married in an Elvis chapel but didn't go through with it.
Katy Perry dated originally John Mayer before she met Russell Brand.
The "Part of Me" singer reportedly went on a date with the guitarist - whom she is now in a relationship with - the day before she met the comedian at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles, which eventually led to their marriage in October 2010.
"A couple of friends had set Katy and John up on this date. They had an amazing time and were planning to do it again. Then she went to the VMAs and fell head over heels for Russell. But it must have always felt like unfinished business with her and John, and they'd occasionally text each other while she was with Russell. It's no surprise to friends they have hooked up now her divorce has been finalized," a source said.
Russell and Katy split in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage and their divorce was finalized a couple of weeks ago. She had been dating Florence + the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd, but insisted it was not serious between them.
Katy Perry's loved ones are worried about her latest choice of boyfriend.
The 27-year-old singer went to a late-night house party with new man, singer John Mayer, 34, recently. John has previously dated Jennifer Aniston, 43, Cameron Diaz, 39, Jennifer Love Hewitt, 32, Kim Kardashian, 31, and Taylor Swift, 22, amongst others.
A source says most of Katy's inner circle, as well as ex-husband Russell Brand, 36, are worried about her choice of partner. "John has a big reputation as a serial womanizer. If people thought her ex, Russell Brand, was bad, John is notoriously a lot worse. Katy's friends are worried this is just a rebound bit of fun but will end with her getting really hurt," an insider said.
John - who also dated Jessica Simpson, 32, in between her relationships with Nick Lachey and Eric Johnson - famously described his time with Jessica as similar to taking drugs. "That girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say: 'I want to quit my life and just f**king snort you?'" he said.
Katy Perry partied with John Mayer and wild animals over the weekend.
The "Part Of Me" singer and her rumored new beau attended an extravagant bash at Hollywood talent agent Michael Kives' house where they were greeted by wild animals from a conservation, and the pair were spotted bonding over their mutual love of the furry creatures.
"They were really cute. They were standing near each other most of the night, playing with the animals outside," an onlooker told People.
Aside from the animals - which included an alligator and a kangaroo - the 27-year-old star reportedly only had eyes for "Gravity" singer John, and the party-goer claims the new couple "definitely enjoyed each other's company." The source added, "They almost acted like they've been a couple for a long time. It definitely didn't seem like a new relationship."
Serial dater John is known for wooing several of Hollywood's leading ladies including Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift.
Katy Perry thinks Adele being pregnant is "so cute." The "Teenage Dream" singer is a huge fan of humble British star Adele - who briefly appeared in Katy's Part Of Me 3D movie singing her praises - and says she is delighted her fellow singer is expecting a baby.
"I love the fact that she's going to have a baby. That's so cute of her. She's such a good woman. And she was really nice in my movie, saying nice things about me. I've always loved her," Katy said.
Katy Perry is dating John Mayer. The "Wide Awake" singer was seen enjoying a romantic meal with the "Gravity" singer at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood last night, and onlookers say they looked totally smitten with each other.
"They were holding hands across the table, sneaking kisses, and laughing," one source told Us Weekly. They were then pictured leaving the exclusive venue in John's car.
Russell Brand feels a "responsibility" to ex-wife Katy Perry.
The British funnyman - whose divorce from the "Part of Me" singer was finalized earlier this month - says although their 14-month marriage didn't work out, he will always have loving feelings for her.
"It was right for as long as it was right and now it's right that we're not together. I feel a responsibility to her - she's living in all of this (Hollywood) and I don't want her to read things that make her think I have anything other than love for her. Because I don't want her to be hurt," the 37 year-old star said.
Russell - who married Katy in October 2010 after dating for just a year - admits marriage is "hard" and takes a lot of work: "It's really hard to be married to someone. So really the fact is, this is a person I love and I don't want to hurt her."
Russell is now said to be dating former talent agent Isabella Brewster while Katy is romancing Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
