Despite a long history of blabbing to the paparazzi about every intimate detail of his personal life, the rocker, crooner and lover opted to avoid the shutterbugs as he walked back to his condo.
Meanwhile, E! Online reports that Katy Perry was texting John before she met and fell in love with Russell Brand at last year’s MTV VMAs.
John and Katy apparently met the night before the ceremony, for the first time after weeks of flirty texting.
A source close to John says, “They’d never met in person, and she went to meet him there after she was at a Jay-Z concert at Madison Square Garden. John thought she was so hot and fun and was into her.”
The insider adds: “They were so flirty and all over each other that night at the bar, they really liked each other. Their personalities just clicked and they were flirting and dancing and it was on.”
The pair stayed at the bar late into the night and exchanged texts at the awards the following day. However, it was never to go any further as Russell swept Katy off her feet that very night.
