John Mayer has confirmed that he has split from Katy Perry.
The singer-songwriter and the pop star were thought to have called time on their romance last month and John confirmed the break-up during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, according to Us Weekly.
John, 35, opened up after Ellen said her "thoughts" were with him after the split.
He kept quiet about why he split from the Firework singer, although he did hint that the romance hadn't been without its complications.
"I'm on the same journey as everyone else," he said. "Coupling is a tricky thing."
John and Katy, 28, started dating last summer and managed to keep details of their relationship to themselves while they were an item.
He said: "It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship still."
