Katy Perry doesn’t seem interested in jumping back into a serious relationship after her split with John Mayer, but that doesn’t mean she’s not casually dating. She’s now been spotted a couple of times (across the country) with L.A.-based music producer Diplo.
Katy and Diplo sparked romance rumors when they flirted at Coachella earlier in April, but Katy flirts with everyone, and Coachella is Coachella. She recently told Power 105.1 she was single, joking that she was “really deep on Tinder so I don't have a whole lot of time."
Maybe she doesn’t have a lot of time for relationships — especially with her upcoming tour — but Diplo, 35, could be a dark horse in the running for her next boyfriend. Katy, 29, and the DJ were photographed on a dinner date at the Marlton Hotel in New York City on April 24.
After dinner, they went together to the Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere after-party in Manhattan, E! said, and after about an hour there they went to the Up & Down nightclub in the West Village.
A witness at the party told US Weekly,, "Diplo and Katy were super affectionate. It's a really fun relationship for them both, easy and casual." Katy and Diplo (who previously dated M.I.A.) were spotted making out earlier this month at Coachella. "They were stealing kisses at first," a spy told Us. "As the night progressed, there was a lot of touching!" But a friend added, "She was just messing around!"
It’s hard to tell when Katy is serious about a guy or just goofing around, but we can’t blame her for wanting to keep things light after her marriage to Russell Brand and two-year relationship with John Mayer, which just ended two months ago.
If we keep seeing her with this Diplo guy, we’ll read more into it, but for now it looks like Katy’s just being Katy — young and free.
