John opens up about how Katy cared for him

John Mayer publicly spoke of his love for Katy Perry at a concert in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Saturday night.

The singer gushed about on-off girlfriend Katy, 28, during the first show of his Born And Raised tour, calling her ‘more incredible than I ever thought’.

He also thanked the Russell Brand‘s ex for taking care of him when he underwent surgery to repair a granuloma in his throat last summer.

John, 35, confessed that Katy would speak for him when he couldn’t talk and even ordered food on his behalf.

She was so patient,’ he told the crowd.

[She took the time] to continue to get know me and love me.’

When the gig drew to a close John made sure that Katy got the final mention, dedicating closing track A Face To Call Home to the Teenage Dream singer.

John said: ‘To Katy, who is my face to call home.’

Katy was believed to be in the audience to hear her man sing for her.

It comes after the pair – who reportedly called time on their relationship in March – shared a cute snap of themselves cuddling up and wearing the Stars and Stripes on Independence Day.

Katy recently spoke about her feelings for John, admitting she was still in love with him despite their break-up.

I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,’ she told American Vogue.

All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind.

Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.’
