Katy Perry was recently spotted enjoying a night out with John Mayer, just days after it was revealed that she is still in love with him.
The "Hot N Cold" singer, 28, was photographed walking in New York City as Mayer, 35, trailed closely behind her and fans are now questioning whether a reconciliation is likely. Perry and Mayer split in March after less than one-year of dating.
"I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him. All I can say about that relationship is that he's got a beautiful mind," Perry recently told the July issue of Vogue regarding Mayer.
"Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds," she added.
While critics suspect that the pair may in fact be dating again, a source claims they are just keeping it causal.
"They are just hanging out. They are not putting a label on it," a source told The Sun U.K.
In a post break-up interview with renowned talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, Mayer revealed that he was "happier" after splitting up with Perry. When asked if his split from Perry was permanent, the Grammy award-winning singer replied, "correct."
"I'm on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing ... Listen, it was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship, still," Mayer told DeGeneres.
"I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other," he continued. "I've been much happier since then. I want everyone to be happy."
Perry began dating Mayer in July 2012 and the singer reportedly helped her overcome the emotional challenges of her 2011 divorce from British actor Russell Brand. Both singers have not publicly explained what exactly prompted their split.
Upon meeting, the pair appeared to grow serious at a rapid pace with both introducing each other to their respective families within months of dating. Mayer was photographed spending Christmas with Perry's family in Santa Barbara.
"Introducing her to his dad was a big deal," a source linked to Mayer told People magazine. "It was just too much, too soon."
