Even celebrities can fall victim to the cowardly curse of the e-break-up.
Katy Perry was on the receiving end when her boyfriend of just one month, John Mayer, pulled the plug on their short-lived romance via email if you believe the "friend" who spoke to Us Weekly about their rapid demise.
"He dumped her over email. She was furious and really hurt," the source claimed. "She was into him, but he wasn't feeling it."
Are you a man or a mouse, Mister Mayer? No wonder Taylor Swift wrote a song about your womanising ways!
Keep in mind that Johnny complained that he "never received an email" from Taylor asking permission to air their dirty laundry in the song 'Dear John' who needs email etiquette lessons now?
The same Us Weekly source believes that John was tired of Katy's "hard-partying". This is the girl who made a trip to Disneyland this week wearing Mickey Mouse ears. Yup, that's one dangerous California Gurl.
Meanwhile, Katy is looking taut as ever wearing a polka-dot sports bra in her new potentially photoshopped ad campaign for healthy snack food brand Popchips.
"Spare me the guilt chip," one of her ads reads.
Nice one, Katy!
