The “on-again, off-again” couple are now said to be back in the “off-again” category. The pair went public with their rocky relationship in September 2012, but split in March 2013. Katy was candid about the breakup in a July interview with Elle UK. The singer admitted:
“He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realized I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another…[But] ‘m not interested in taming anyone — I’m pretty wild myself. … My days of celebrity saving are over!”
By June, they were hot and heavy again; even collaborating on the song “Who Do You Love?” Katy sparked rumors of a Valentine’s Day engagement after she was photographed sporting a new sparkler.
Alas, it was not to be.
Celebrity squeals tell Us Weekly that Katy’s upcoming run of show dates has put strain on the already tumultuous union.
“She’s stressed about the tour, they’ve been fighting. It is probably for the best, because she is going to be on tour for forever. Of course this happens all the time, I can’t keep track anymore. But for now they are done.”
