Dated Between: 2008 - 2009, and - 2009
This on again-off again couple first started dating early 2008 after having met each other at the Oscars. The romance was more like a fling, with the pair calling it quits in August, with John Mayer announcing to the media that it didn’t feel right and he didn’t want to waste his or her time.
John and Jennifer’s relationship was a highly publicised one and was often scrutinised in the media and compared to that of Brad and Angelina’s. A few months after breaking up, John and Jen were said to have rekindled the romance, and again went public together at this years Oscars.
Jennifer Aniston is ten years John Mayer’s senior, though it wasn’t her who pulled the plug on their relationship, it was him. John and Jen had disagreements upon Jennifer Aniston returning from having touring to promote her latest movie Marly & Me. John Mayer had heard rumours that Jennifer had stayed one night in Owen Wilson’s room, so he confronted her about it. Jen admitted to having slept in the room, but on the couch and only because she had had too much to drink. According to John Mayer, that was grounds for instant dismissal, and he broke up with Jennifer on the spot.
The break up is said to be “for good” now, but then again, how often have we heard those words?
