During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Mayer refrained from sharing details of the split. "Listen, it was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it's a private relationship, still," Mayer said.
While the singer was once known for his open discourse regarding past relationships — most notably when he referred to Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" — Mayer has since learned from his past mistakes. "I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given, but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I've been much happier since then," he continued. "I'm on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing. It's a tricky thing. I want everyone to be happy."Mayer and Perry were first spotted together in June. They reportedly broke up last month, only weeks after attending the Grammys together.
