From Star via Celebitchy:
Is Katy Perry about to make the same mistake twice? Sources tell Star the fast-moving pop star, 27, is already house hunting in London with her new beau, guitarist Robert Ackroyd, just three months after meeting him. “Rob has been staying with Katy in L.A., but now he needs to be in England because he’s playing in all the summer festivals. He begged her to go with him,” says the source. “At first Katy wasn’t sure because he’s got such a ladies’ man reputation [sound familiar?] and only recently split from his ex.” But he insisted he’d put his bad-boy ways behind him to be with her.
Rob, 29, even went so far as to take out his iPhone and delete the numbers of every single ex-girlfriend in front of Katy. “He told her he just really wanted to be with her all the time and that it would be all fun and no drama,” says the source. “She was so taken with the gesture that she agreed to do it.”
There’s just one bump in the road to their happiness — her ex, Russell Brand. “Russell lives in the U.K., and both Katy and he have agreed that they can’t live in the same town anymore,” says the insider.
The amazing thing is, Russell, 37, who Katy says was “unbearably petty” during their 14-month marriage, has actually agreed to give up his home turf in the U.K. and move to L.A. for the summer. Katy is surprised and delighted that he’s being so accommodating.
“She has definitely moved on from Russell,” the sources says. “She’s telling friends she’s madly in love with Rob and has never felt this way about anyone before,” the sources says. “Katy really feels inspired by England, and she just can’t wait to put this horrible year behind her and go forward with this amazing guy by her side.”
I don’t even know where to begin with this. History repeats itself, I guess, and in this case, the history is that a couple of years ago, Katy met a different man who had a similar reputation for being promiscuous. They dated for three months, then they got engaged. The wedding was several months later, and the divorce was filed several months after that. So obviously, in the meantime while she’s waiting for the divorce to finalize, a great idea would be to do the exact same thing all over again.
And if I was concerned about moving in with my boyfriend because I was worried he was a player, then he probably just wouldn’t be my boyfriend anymore. Deleting ex-girlfriends’ numbers from your phone doesn’t exactly sound like an amazing promise of commitment to me. And call me cautious, but if a guy tried to convince me to move in with him because it would be “all fun and no drama,” then again, that would be a no for me.
But hey, I guess if you’re Katy Perry, then getting a house with someone isn’t such a huge deal. It wouldn’t be exactly the same as, say, a lovable gossip blogger buying a house* with her fiancé. There’s a lot more money involved, and a whole lot more travel. I guess for Katy Perry, buying a house in England isn’t really a big deal at all. At least I hope it isn’t, because I really don’t want to write all the engagement, wedding, and divorce stories all over again.
