Even though Katy Perry has just finalized her divorce from Russell Brand yesterday, she said that she wasn’t even considering anything serious with anyone. Of course she was referencing her brief relationship with Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
Katy commented that she was taking time to heal and was only flirting. She said that she wasn’t ready for any type of serious relationship with anyone. Apparently someone didn’t tell Robert that because the guy is moving to Los Angeles from England (!) to be closer to the pop singer.
An insider said, “Katy doesn’t want to make the same mistakes she made with Russell. The long distance thing didn’t work so if she’s going to settle down again, it needs to be with someone who can be close at hand when she needs them. It will also take some compromising on her part.”
The source went on to say, “But Rob is making the move overseas towards the end of the year. It seems really sudden but it’s now or never for them. They’ve spent the majority of the past few months apart so in one way it will actually be a test of their relationship to be around each other so much.”
He’s definitely an upgrade from Russell, that’s for sure. Think this one will stick around longer than Russell?
