Now that her divorce from Russell Brand is finalized, Katy Perry just wants to have a good time. And it looks like she's found the right man to do that with" Perry, 27, was photographed leaving Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont on Wednesday night with none other than legendary ladies' man John Mayer, 34.
According to Us Weekly, the pair were first spotted getting cute and cuddly at West Hollywood's SoHo House on June 19.
But the paparazzi photos of Perry and Mayer leaving their purported Wednesday dinner date are the first physical evidence that they've been spending time together.
A witness tells Us that the two singers weren't shy with the PDA during dinner, "holding hands across the table," kissing and laughing with each other.
Perry has allegedly had a crush on the notorious Casanova -- whose past conquests include Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jessica Simpson -- for years, and reportedly even hit on him back in 2009 at New York City's Golbar. For now, Us Weekly's source says they're "just hooking up" and that "it's not serious -- yet!"
A different source has confirmed the fledgling romance to People -- but also stresses that things are casual.
"I don't think either of them are trying for anything serious right now. She's not talking like he's 'The One,'" a friend of Perry's tells the magazine. "She's comfortable around guys who understand the craziness of that world, which he definitely does."
Perry certainly doesn't seem to be in a rush to jump into anything serious. Although she's been romantically linked to Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd since becoming single, she was quick to shoot down the idea that she's "dating" anyone when USA Today asked her about the relationship in early July.
"That's not even appropriate to label," she told the paper. "There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it's not really appropriate to have anything serious."
Will things eventually get serious with Mayer? And will Perry be the lady to finally tame the "Your Body Is a Wonderland" singer? We'll just have to wait and see.
