Travie McCoy Reflects On Relationship With Katy Perry
Gym Class Hereos star Travie McCoy has spoken out about his past relationship with Katy Perry, revealing the singer broke up with him by email.
In a Behind The Music special, Travie reflected on his two year on and off relationship with Katy Perry, explaining where it all went wrong, and how Katy dumped him.
Whilst confessing that his time with Katy was the ‘most amazing time ever’, Travie revealed how the couple’s relationship came under strain when Katy’s career began to take off. Reports suggest similar reasons were to blame for the breakdown of Katy’s marriage to comedian Russell Brown.
Speaking of the happier times in his relationship with Katy, Travie said: “When I was around her I felt really at ease and comfortable with myself. It was the most amazing thing ever.” Travie went on to admit that his problems with drugs were also a contribution to Katy leaving him.
“She wasn’t stupid… She knew when I was f**ked up. I chose drugs over our relationship… As things started taking off for her the more I started to doubt my role in her life. There were times I felt like a stepping ladder.”
Perhaps the most surprisingly revelation from Travie, came when he revealed that Katy broke up with him simply by email. He explained: “It started off with ‘I love you so much I hate to do this…’” before confessing “someone that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with sends you a f**king email just s**ting on your whole parade. It destroyed me.”
