Rumors first surfaced that Mayer, 36, popped the question to Perry, 29, when the “Who You Love” singers were spotted leaving the Sunset Tower Hotel in L.A. on Friday, Feb. 14. At the time, the “Roar” songstress was all smiles as she rocked a stunning ring on that (!) finger. (Perry also caused a commotion when she stepped out wearing a ring on her left hand while attending the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam last November.)
“It’s not true. They are not engaged,” an insider reports. Adds a second source: “It was a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner for the two of them in a private spot but there was no proposal…the dinner was sweet but low-key.” Afterward, the pair met up with friends at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood and sat at a private booth. (The next day, Perry was no longer wearing the ring as she and Mayer did some shopping in Hollywood.)
The couple of nearly two years may not be walking down the aisle anytime soon, but a wedding is definitely on their radar. “Everyone knows it’s just a question of when John will propose,” a source previously told Us Weekly. “[They] realize they must be together.”
Mayer was previously linked to Jessica Simpson in 2006, and had an on-and-off relationship with Jennifer Aniston from April 2008 to late 2009. He also briefly dated Taylor Swift in 2009. Perry finalized her divorce from comedian Russell Brand in July 2012 after 14 months of marriage.
