John Mayer, serial womaniser and current dater of Katy Perry, has finally admitted what we all already thought to be true, that he was a 'jerk' to his past girlfriends. We would have gone with some other choice words John, but you're in the same ballpark area as us so we'll leave it.

The 35-year-old singer has dated stars including Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and Minka Kelly before finding his current happiness in Katy Perry (he must have some weird pheromone effect on the lonely single white female. That or be massively talented, if you catch our drift) and admitted he didn't always treat his former love interests well, saying on 'CBS Sunday Morning', 'I was just a jerk.' Again, his words, not ours.

'It's very liberating when you finally understand it's impossible to make everyone like you. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction.'

The relationship with Katy is now apparently so serious that it's escalating to meetings with estate agents so they can get their own place together. Red Alert Katy. Lawyer the hell up before you sign your name to anything with him. A source said: 'He always insisted he needed his own place to make music but clearly that's changed. Now he mostly hangs out at Katy's place in LA. They've both acted very private about their relationship in the past but they seem comfortable about going public with their relationship now. They seem very happy.'

'John really likes the fact that Katy is so independent and not needy and clingy like the other girls he's dated. This is the first time John's felt so strongly about a girl. She's played her cards perfectly. They really do bring out the best in each other.' She's played her cards perfectly? Because he's the catch here? Someone's ego needs a good firm popping.
