John Mayer and Katy Perry have split according to sources close to the couple. On Feb. 26, Huffington Post reported that Katy Perry dumped John Mayer less than two weeks after Perry was spotted with a maybe-engagement ring.

According to a source, Perry broke things off with Mayer and then hopped on a plane to Europe, leaving him back in LA to pick up the pieces. No details on why the couple split or what may have sparked problems between them. Given John Mayer's track record with women (Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift), this really isn't surprising.

Katy Perry's split is only surprising because of the timing. With rumors of an engagement and a pregnancy red hot, news that she actually broke things off seemed to come out of nowhere. Now, chances are good that the two will reconcile; they have broken up at least once before but only for a few days. Perhaps it was just a fight and Perry left to clear her head. At this point, saying that Katy and John are completely through is probably too soon.

Do you like Katy and John together? Do you think they will work things out?
