Jennifer Aniston has a message for newly single Katy Perry – you dodged a bullet!
Jen reached out to the “Dark Horse” singer after hearing Katy had given crooner John Mayer the boot, possibly because she found out he was cheating on her.
If anyone knows what it feels like to be hurt by Mayer, it’s Jen – he reportedly dumped her by text message in 2008.
“Jen says John should come with a ‘bad for your heart’ warning,” a friend told The ENQUIRER. “John ripped her heart out when he dumped her. She really struggled getting over that, and she felt the need to reach out to Katy to give her a pat on the back and offer her a shoulder if she needed.”
Jen recruited a mutual pal, Chelsea Handler, to pass on the words of support to Katy, who’s currently in Australia on a promotional visit in preparation for her upcoming world tour.
“At Jen’s request, Chelsea emailed Katy, telling her that Jen thinks she handled the split with class and that she totally dodged a bullet,” the friend revealed, because Jen thinks John doesn’t deserve Katy.
Katy, who is due to begin her Prismatic tour in May, was thrilled to hear from the women and asked Chelsea to arrange a girls’ night out when she got back to the states, says the friend.
Jennifer, 45, and Katy, 29, have several friends in common but have never had a chance to really get to know one another.
“It’s not every day you have your ex’s ex taking you under her wing,” the friend added, “but Jen really does think Katy’s carrying herself like a trouper.”
