It seems Katy Perry and John Mayer are dating again as the singers were spotted spending their Memorial Day weekend in Disneyland.
According to reports, John Mayer and Katy Perry had a blast with friends as they rode on some of the park’s rides.
The singers also grabbed dinner at Disneyland’s super-exclusive Club 33 after staying right until the park closed.
Even though Katy Perry and John Mayer have not confirmed they are a couple again, the two have been spotted out together several times in the past few months.
Katy Perry and John Mayer sparked dating rumors in January after they were spotted grabbing dinner at a mutual friend’s house in Los Angeles. They were also seen together at different events in the next months.
Katy Perry has been sued by Christian hip-hop stars, who claim her hit Dark Horse ripped off their track Joyful Noise.
They accused Katy Perry of using the 2008 track without permission, tarnishing its “devoutly religious message” with images of “witchcraft” and “black magic.”
Joyful Noise comes from Flame’s Grammy-nominated album Our World: Redeemed.
Dark Horse topped the US Billboard chart for several weeks in January.
The group of rappers – Flame aka Marcus Gray, Lecrae Moore, Emanuel Lambert and Chike Ojukwu – are seeking damages from Katy Perry, guest artist Juicy J, Capitol Records and songwriters Dr Luke and Max Martin for copyright infringement.

Court papers in St Louis, Missouri, show they also want an injunction and profits gained from the unauthorized use of their track, stating Katy Perry had performed Dark Horse at sold-out concerts throughout the US and sold millions of copies.
“The devoutly religious message of Joyful Noise has been irreparably tarnished by its association with the witchcraft, paganism, black magic, and Illuminati imagery evoked by the same music in Dark Horse,” said the rappers’ complaint.
They continued: “Indeed, the music video of Dark Horse generated widespread accusations of blasphemy and an online petition signed by more than 60,000 demanding removal of an offensive religious image from the video.”
The video for Dark Horse was edited in February this year following the complaints, with a pendant featuring the Arabic word for God being digitally “scrubbed” out of the scene.
More than 440 million people have watched the video on YouTube since February this year.
Flame said the track’s similarities to Joyful Noise were brought to his attention by his DJ, Cho’zyn Boy. The DJ compiled an audio comparison of the two songs, published by Rapzilla, after noticing comments about them on Twitter.
They claim Katy Perry and her collaborators “never sought or obtained permission” to use Joyful Noise for “creating, reproducing, recording, distributing, selling, or publicly performing” Dark Horse.
Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry were “looking cozy” last Friday during a post-premiere party in Los Angeles for his well-received movie The Rover, Page Six reported.

Katy Perry, 29, who since her February split from John Mayer has been linked to DJ Diplo, rapper Riff-Raff and rocker ex-boyfriend Robert Ackroyd, has said she even contacted Robert Pattinson’s repeat ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart to tell her the hookup talk wasn’t true.
The singer said: “I sent her a text message saying, <<I know you’ve seen all this stuff, but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person>>.”
Selena Gomez has hired Bradford Cobb, who manages Katy Perry and Adam Lambert, Us Weekly reported.
The 21-year-old Disney star fired her mother Mandy Teefy and stepfather Brian Teefy, who have managed her since childhood.

The decision comes after Selena Gomez cancelled her Australian tour in December and secretly entered rehab in January and reconnected with boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Selena Gomez made yet more headlines last week when she palled around with Kendall and Kylie Jenner at the Coachella Music Festival — only to mysteriously unfollow them on Instagram shortly thereafter.
Bradford Cobb, who was listed as one of Billboard’s 40 executives under 40 in July 2013, has spent more than a decade in the industry making a name for himself, and was instrumental in making Katy Perry a pop superstar.
Selena Gomez’s 2013 album Stars Dance was her first number one on the Billboard 200, with hits Come & Get It and Slow Down.
Katy Perry’s video for her new track Dark Horse has been edited following claims from some Muslims it was blasphemous.
More than 65,000 people signed a petition which stated the video – featuring a pendant with the Arabic word for God on it being reduced to sand – was offensive.
The music video has not been cut, but the pendant has now been digitally “scrubbed” out of the scene.
Petition instigator Shazad Iqbal, said he was “thrilled” with the outcome.
“The name of Allah has been removed from the Dark Horse video – we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard,” he wrote on Change.org.

“I feel that the impact we have made and the total number of signatures obtained does convey just how worthy a cause this is, it is a significant step towards the right direction.”
It is unclear whether YouTube made the change or if it was instructed to by Katy Perry’s record company.
Katy Perry’s video features the pop star as an Egyptian queen who transforms suitors into sand by disintegrating them.
Shazad Iqbal, from Bradford, began the petition after he spotted one of the suitors wearing the pendant.
Explaining his reasons for starting the petition, Shazad Iqbal wrote: “Blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry – who appears to be representing an opposition of God – engulfs the believer and the word God in flames.”
“Using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion,” he added.
Katy Perry’s Dark Horse video has attracted more than 37 million views since it premiered on YouTube on February 20.

On Saturday night, Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry spent time together as they attended a Bjork concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry were said to have met up “discreetly” and made their way into the gig together before leaving separately to avoid photographers waiting outside the venue, X17Online.com reports.
Katy Perry, 28, opted for a gothic inspired ensemble for her evening out with her showbiz pal, teaming a punky leather miniskirt with a black and silver crucifix logo T-shirt.
She teamed her outfit with a long black satin coat, black tights and heels, while wearing a black and silver choker around her neck.
Showing off her perfect porcelain skin with natural make-up, Katy Perry wore her raven locks poker straight around her face.
And in spite of her A-list pal, Katy Perry paid no reference to her company as she expressed her delight at the gig over Twitter, writing: “Dear Bjork, how do I join your traveling girl cult? #brilliantshow.”
Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson have been spending a lot of time together in recent weeks, and it’s even been claimed the songstress has even taken her pal to visit her parents in Santa Barbara, California.

A source told Grazia magazine: “Katy and Robert have been spending a lot of time together recently and it’s safe to say there is serious chemistry. Katy thought the break from LA would do Rob good, and since he was no longer living with Kristen, she didn’t hesitate in inviting him to join her.”
“But she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship by rushing into anything.”
Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson puzzled onlookers earlier this month when they were spotted checking out the wedding rehearsal of two strangers at San Ysidro Ranch, not far from where Katy grew up.
Rehearsal guest Stephanie Sands told People.com: “Katy and Rob were just sitting next to each other watching the wedding rehearsal in the main courtyard area. They were dressed very casually.
“She was wearing a hoodie and big sunglasses. There was no PDA between them and no body language that showed they were dating. They just sat together and watched. They were not affiliated with the wedding party and were not seen mingling with guests.”
Katy Perry was said to have been disapproving of Robert Pattinson’s reconciliation with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart last year following her fling with married director Rupert Sanders.
A source told Life & Style magazine: “Katy never really supported Rob’s decision to get back with Kristen. She always said they wouldn’t last.
“Katy told Rob she didn’t think their relationship could withstand the cheating scandal. And he deserved better than someone who would destroy a family [like Rupert’s].”
Despite the couple managing to patch things up after a two-month break following Kristen Stewart’s “momentary indiscretion” with Rupert Sanders last year, it is thought their relationship is over for good this time after Robert Pattinson was spotted moving his belongings out of her home in Los Feliz earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Katy Perry split from musician John Mayer in mid-March, but the on-off couple are recently said to have rekindled their turbulent romance.
Last night Katy Perry sported a nude bodysuit as she took to the stage at the MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA’s) in Toronto, Canada, to perform her new track Wide Awake.
However, despite the outfit being concealed somewhat by a huge pair of butterfly wings she was wearing for the rendition, it was when Katy Perry made her way off the stage after collecting her award for International Artist that she ran into trouble with the outfit.
But luckily Katy Perry thought quickly and decided to use her MuchMusic award – a long black rectangular box – to maintain her modesty by concealing her rear as she exited the stage after picking up the prize from Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale.
The bodysuit was just one of three outfits Katy Perry sported at last night’s star-studded awards.

She had earlier arrived on the red carpet dressed as a Marvel-esque superhero in a black and gold gown with cartoon princess hair, accompanied by a mini-army of children dressed in tiny replicas of previous outfits worn by the star.
Katy Perry later toned things down with a prim pair of black culottes and a cream and black lace high necked fitted top, before changing into her bodysuit for the performance of Wide Awake.
The singer debuted the tune at the Billboard Awards in May with an elaborate performance in Las Vegas which saw her lowered onto the stage on a swing wearing a wedding dress.
She was then thrown across the stage as a long haired groom tried to catch her.
The lyrics clearly relate to the breakdown of her 14 month marriage in December last year.
Katy Perry sings: “I’m wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong? I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn’t dive in, I wouldn’t bow down.”
She even hints in the song that the marriage was over for a while.
“Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion’s den. I don’t have to pretend. The story’s over now, the end.”
Katy Perry and Russell Brand have never confirmed the reasons for the dissolution of their marriage in anything but the vaguest terms, but all that could change in the wake of a new film that will feature their doomed union.
Katy Perry, 27, opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on her show about her new film, Part of Me, and how she decided to show a realistic account of her life in the feature, including her relationship with Russell Brand.
The singer’s news comes just a week after Russell Brand, 36, told Ellen DeGeneres that he still loves his estranged wife.
Ellen DeGeneres asked Katy Perry about the 3D documentary, saying to her: “Of course, you got married during that time and that didn’t turn out to last, is part of it still in there?”

Katy Perry told Ellen: “I thought it was important to show everything in between.
“I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all.”
“I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film,” Katy Perry said.
“In the most tasteful way. But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun.”
Some reports suggested that Katy Perry had cut Russell Brand from the footage, but this interview finally lays those rumors to rest.
The couple have been granted go ahead for a divorce but it will not be finalized until July, because California law requires a waiting period of six months.
They split just two months after their first wedding anniversary.
Katy Perry was said to have been “blindsided” when Russell Brand filed for divorce just after Christmas.
The move came after the pair enjoyed separate holidays over the festivities, Katy Perry in Hawaii and Russell Brand in his native England.
They have both moved on, Russell Brand has been linked to Brazilian artist Oriela Medallin and David Hasselhoff’s ex Anouska De Georgiou, while Katy Perry has had flings with Baptiste Giabiconi and Florence the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
