John Mayer


John Mayer has officially been snapped as a single man.

While shutterbugs were unaware of the hunky musicians newly single status as he exited his hotel in NYC on Tuesday, it was just hours later that E! News exclusively reported that the 36-year-old "Gravity" crooner and Katy Perry have called it quits.

A source close to the pair told E! News that the "Fireworks" singer broke up with Mayer within the last few days, providing no further details as to what prompted Perry break up with her on-again-off-again beau.

Mayer was noticeably absent from the brunette beauty's side on her recent trip to both London and Milan. She returned home to Los Angeles on Friday, while Mayer was snapped in the Big Apple this week.

The "Your Body Is a Wonderland" singer wore a stoic expression as he left his hotel, looking comfortable in a pair of jeans, brown boots, an untucked button down shirt and a long tan coat with a sheepskin trim, while carrying a backpack as he strolled past the pesky paps.

The former couple's split may seem sudden to many as the duo has been at the center of engagement rumors for quite some time, with the most recent being Perry's appearance at the Elle Style Awards in London, where she was snapped with a stunning diamond sparker on that finger.

However, this isn't the first time that the pair have parted ways in the past after they first went public with their romance in the summer of 2012. 

The musical duo briefly split in March 2013, but by June, they were "back on," enjoying a "casual" relationship, according to a source.

Just three months later, an insider revealed that their romance had become "very serious" with friends even encouraging the twosome to tie the knot.  "They are so perfect together," a source told E! News in November adding that an engagement is "inevitable."

The duo also recently collaborated on the song "Who You Love," off of Mayer's latest album, Paradise Valley.

"It's a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song but I think there's an authenticity to it when you hear it," Mayer said during the pair's first TV interview together. "It transcends us, it's more about the message of the song," Katy added.

And now we'll always have the tune to remember the two.
