Are Katy Perry and John Mayer Dating?

New couple? Katy Perry and John Mayer leave a house party together in Los Angeles on Saturday nightDear John: The pop star appeared comfortable around her rumoured beau - at least enough to change out of her sky-high heels on their way out
It seems things are heating up between Katy and John because the pair have been spotted couple of times in recent weeks. They were seen together on a casual date for the first time last month and spotted again recently  accompanying one another to a house party in Los Angeles.

Katy's divorce from comedian, Russell Brand officially ended last month after their 14-month marriage, while John has enjoyed long-term relationships with Minka Kelly, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and has also dated Jennifer Love Hewitt and Taylor Swift.

This people don't waste time to move on, I hope this relationship works out because I know John as a ladies man...

Liberty Ross Set to Divorce Rupert Sander Following His Affair

A source told The People the Liberty started divorce proceedings within a week of finding out about her hubby's cheating, contrary to earlier reports that she wanted to save their marriage.

She also wants to take her children Skyla, seven, and Tennyson, five, back to her homeland as she only moved to the U.S. for Rupert's career as a director. 'She has no strong ties in the U.S. nor does she want to remain here,' a source told the newspaper.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Left Off Forbes' Highest-Paid Celeb Couples List

Last year, 'Twilight' couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart landed in fifth place on Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list, with a combined annual earnings of $40 million. However, this year the couple are missing from the annual list.

"Stewart and Pattinson were, in fact, left off of the list because they are broken up," Forbes told The Huffington Post.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have now taken Pattinson and Stewart's place on the list, which is headed by Beyonce and Jay-Z, who earned $78 million. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and quarterback Tom Brady came in second on the list. David and Victoria Beckham grabbed third place, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came in fourth.

This is the first of fallen awards for the "Twilight" sweethearts. The pair likely won't be favorites to win "Best Kiss" for the 5th time at this year's MTV Movie Awards. 

So its safe to say they are officially broken up.... how sad!

This is the latest move by the UK’s coalition government to persuade foreign convicts to serve their sentences at home.

It was revealed that a project is currently on going in Nigeria which supports the provision of “human rights training for prison officers” while another project will construct new facilities at a women’s prison in Lagos, to reduce overcrowding.
The report also claimed that funds are currently being spent in Jamaica to “assist Jamaican authorities in modernising their prison service and rehabilitation and reintegration activities.”
