[Blind Gossip] The female half of this famous celebrity couple is really pushing for the altar. She is telling her friends that a marriage proposal is coming soon.
That’s what she thinks.
Although he joins in on the lovey-dovey act in public, he is privately telling his friends that there will be no proposal until she keeps one very specific promise she made to him: to stop drinking. We think he’ll be waiting on that one for a while.

The stories that you are reading about what happened in the Katy Perry/ John Mayer split don’t even begin to tell the whole story. But we will!
First, the “official” announcement of the breakup. This is from EOnline, but all the reports are fairly similar:
Katy Perry and John Mayer Break Up
A source close to the pair exclusively tells E! News that Perry broke up with Mayer within the last few days.
No other details about what prompted the “Dark Horse” singer’s decision were forthcoming, but Mayer was noticeably absent from Perry’s side on her recent trip to London and Milan. She returned home to Los Angeles on Friday.
Despite some early ups and down, the musical pair fast became one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, sweetly gushing about each other in interviews and collaborating on the song “Who You Love,” off of Mayer’s latest album, Paradise Valley.
The duo have been the center of engagement rumors for quite some time now, with the most recent round of are-they-or-aren’t-they being sparked by the huge diamond ring Perry was wearing at the Elle Style Awards last week in London.
Perhaps the glittering accessory was just for style after all.
A source told E! News in November, however, that the next step seemed “inevitable,” and that all of their nearest and dearest were really rooting for them to stay together. “They are so perfect together,” the insider added.
The Prism artist once called Mayer a “genius” and told E! News, “I’ve been a fan of John’s for years before I got to actually kiss him.”
About their musical collaboration, she added, “I’ve been such a fan, I think he’s so incredibly talented and gifted and a genius songwriter. So to be a part of anything he was doing was just natural.”
The two first went public with their off-and-on romance in summer 2012. They split briefly, reconciled, called things off again last March, but then seemed to be going strong once again.
So that’s the official story.
Now, we’ll give you the REAL story.
Katy Perry likes to party hard (see links below). Katy Perry really wanted John Mayer to propose. Mayer hates Perry’s chronic drinking and partying. That was the main reason they broke up last year. They eventually got back together, but Mayer made it very clear to her that he was never going to propose to her until she stopped partying.
Perry would not stop partying… and she would not stop pushing the marriage issue. All of the engagement ring teases were publicity stunts orchestrated by Katy Perry. She was the one who bought the rings. She thought that if the public liked the idea of her engagement, that it would push Mayer towards proposing. That didn’t happen. It actually caused Mayer to back away more. Mayer eventually became so annoyed by her constant partying, her public clamoring for attention, and her trying to push him into marriage, that he broke up with Perry again.
Yes, Mayer broke up with Perry, not the other way around as she is claiming. And he broke up with her for the same reason that Russell Brand broke up with her: Perry’s partying is out of control.
Congratulations to EvieG, who was first with the correct response!
