Los Angeles, April 5 (IANS) Singer John Mayer is said to be jealous of former girlfriend Katy Perry’s ex-husband Russell Brand.
“Perry and Brand still talk to one another and that was another thing that irked Mayer,” thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
“He’s never been in a relationship where he wasn’t the main focus all the time and it bothered him,” added the source.
According to the source, Perry was also unhappy that Mayer constantly flirted with other girls and played up his heartbreaker image, even when she was standing next to him.
“But Katy gave it back. She knew that she could push John’s buttons by comparing his flaws to what she saw was great in Russell, which he hated,” added the source.
Mayer recently appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’s chat show and said he was happier without Perry.
The source said: “John and Katy together were like a volcano just about to go off. Their relationship was incredibly volatile, stemming from the jealousy they both harboured deep inside.”
