Since Katy Perry and John Mayer called it quits, no one is really too sure what’s happening in the songstress’s love life. She’s been linked to a few men over the last months, one of whom is DJ and music producer Diplo.
Perry is rumored to be dating Diplo, whose real name is Wesley Pentz, but if those rumors are true then her relationship is going to get a whole lot weirder because the DJ is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend.
According to New York Daily News newspaper’s Confidenti@l column, Diplo’s ex-girlfriend, Kathryn Lockhart — with whom he shares a 4-year-old son, Lockett — was “newly pregnant” when he started dating Perry in April.
“She’s due in the next couple of weeks. Her friends recently had a baby shower for her. She and Wes aren’t together, but he’s actively involved in (Lockett’s) life,” a source told the publication.
Although Perry has not shed any light on her rumored romance with Diplo, the pair first sparked romance rumors in April when they spent a lot of time together at the Coachella festival in California. They have been spotted out together on more than one occasion though, including a trip to Jamaica with friends in June and when they packed on the PDA at Seth Meyers’s Emmys after-party in August.
So, why has nothing been said about the potential romance? Well, according to E! News, Perry wants to keep it under wraps.
“She’s keeping this one undercover because she’s learned her lesson. She’s in control, but he likes that,” a source told the publication earlier this month.
“He knows she’s in charge and respects her. She keeps tabs on him… but she trusts him and that’s the most important thing to her.”
