KATY PERRY and JOHN MAYER have split...again. Word has it Katy dumped him sometime in the last few days, which is a dramatic change from just last week when another round of engagement rumors were spreading after Katy was spotted wearing a diamond ring in London.

It's also said that Mayer's own recent tour put a strain on the relationship. Katy has been flying solo over the past few weeks during trips to Milan, London and elsewhere, although no one thought much of it at the time. While some sources are saying it may only be a temporary breakup, others are saying this time it's for good.
