The Word: Are Katy Perry and John Mayer back on?

Katy Perry is rekindling her friendship with her ex, John Mayer. They hung out together this weekend — with about a dozen of their friends. Are they back together? Or just pals? John Mayer doesn’t really seem like the kind of ex you could stay just friends with, does he?

The two singers showed up with their friends at Chateau Marmont on June 7. They staked out several tables in the patio and passed a long evening of low-key partying, according to Hollywood Life.

Katy and John mostly stayed at their own tables and didn’t interact much with each other. Maybe they’re just playing it cool — a public patio isn’t exactly the place to restart a love affair.

Katy has also been spending a lot of time with newly single Robert Pattinson. They even crashed a wedding rehearsal together recently, and if that’s not a magical first date, I don’t know what is. However, sources close to the non-couple say there’s nothing romantic between them: They’re just good, platonic, wedding-crashing pals.

“Rob and Katy are just very similar people and she adores him, as a friend, and she just wants to be there for him as a mate,” the source explained to E! News.
