John Mayer didn’t seem broken up at all over his breakup with pop queen Katy Perry on Wednesday night when the singer-songwriter and notorious ladies’ man hit a Greenwich Village jazz club solo.
Sources say Mayer was looking worry-free at the Blue Note and stayed into the wee hours of Thursday morning to take in a show by pianist Chick Corea at the famed West Third Street venue.
Spies snapped a picture of Mayer smiling at the crowded club in a woolly sweater that looked like it came from the set of 1970s TV series “Starsky & Hutch.” Mayer posted a video of the jazz performance with the caption, “Helluva night.” He was later seen on Thursday looking scruffy in Soho.
We’re told Mayer and Corea have been recording together with other musicians, including producer-composer Steve Jordan, bassist Pino Palladino and trumpeter Wallace Roney. They were scheduled to appear on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Thursday.
Reports have said that Mayer and Perry’s split was “mutual” and “extremely amicable,” but sources exclusively told Page Six that Perry wasn’t happy when she recently “found text messages on John’s phone from some random girl.” Mayer’s past reported conquests have included Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.
Mayer and Perry have dated on and off since the summer of 2012, and earlier this month, rumors swirled that the pair had gotten secretly engaged when Perry was seen wearing a blingy ring on Valentine’s Day and recently in Europe. But on Wednesday, news broke that the two had broken up.
Perry has been traveling in Europe, where she’s also been dealing with some bad press over a video for her song “Dark Horse,” which offended some in the Muslim community by showing a burning Allah pendant.
