Taylor Swift And John Mayer Ran Into Each Other In WeHo… And It Was NOT Pretty!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsJohn MayerTaylor Swift

taylor swift john mayer confrontation

The war has BEGUN!

John Mayer recently spoke about how upset he was over the song Taylor Swift wrote about their 2010 relationship, called Dear John. He went so far as to call it "cheap songwriting" and scolded her for "humiliating" him - and now, it appears that the country cutie isn't exactly over their falling out, either!

Sources at WeHo's Tower Bar are reporting that the two had more than a little bit of an awkward confrontation when they ran into each other there on Tuesday night!

A witness explains:

“Taylor very visibly — in front of the entire restaurant — demanded to be moved to the other side. The bar’s usually an oasis of calm and privacy for celebrities and power players, but this was drama central.”


While we don't condone making a scene in public, we can imagine that his recent comments must have really poured salt into some old wounds - especially since he attacked her integrity as an artist!

Remember, gurl, the best revenge is a life well-lived!

Don't even give him the satisfaction of knowing that he got under your skin!

UPDATE: Sources insist that Taylor did NOT cause a scene of any kind. The concede that she was at the restaurant, but her path never crossed Mayer's and nothing all that dramatic occurred.

Who to believe?!

    This bitch needs to learn that there are consequences to her actions. God, I really cannot stand this girl. Team John!

  2. 2

    She needs to grow up and stop playing the victim. He needs to shut up, be a man and treat his exes with respect - regardless of who did what.

  3. 3

    you don't condone it?

  4. bryanlizza says – reply to this


    Well, what goes around, comes around. He was pretty disrespectful to Simpson and embarrased the heck out of her, time for a teaspoon of his own medicine!!!

  5. 5

    She's awfully childish. You can't write a song about someone and put it out there publicly and expect that person to not say anything about it. She invited his comments by doing so. Move on girl and grow up. Let go of the past, and move forward. That's what adults do. (real ones)

  6. Elaine says – reply to this


    This girl isnt a victim. Maybe if she stopped dating half the world, her heart would not be as broken. She is 20+ years old, i think it is time to leave the highschool attitude behind and grow the hell up. So tired of her theatrics alreafy

  7. 7

    They're both immature, egotistical, self-centered assholes. If she chooses to air her dirty laundry so publicly via song, then she should expect reaction. At the same time, if Mayer doesn't want people to see him as a douche bag, then he should stop acting like one.
    "the best revenge is a life well-lived" How does this statement fit in with your claims of change and positivity, Perez? How is that even remotely peaceful or mature? You need to STFU, you loser asshole.

  8. 8

    He's mad at her for writing a song but it's ok for him to talk about how the sex was with his exes???? He must be great in bed. I don't get how he gets so many A list women…

  9. 9

    God, if this is true, she is ridiculous. Demanding to be moved to the other side? If it was that serious, ol' girl should've gotten up and left and decided to be a woman and get over it.

  10. 10

    There both a lot of work.

  11. AvaVaValdi says – reply to this


    When you use your flavor of the month/boy crushes for song fodder and utilize your PR machine to promote them as such, calling out any boy who doesn't marry you then don't be so duplicitous when an ex-flame (and helluva songwriter) calls you out on your hack a*s whiney brat songwriting.

  12. 12

    STFU John Mayer. You and your rasist dick lost everyone's respect when you kissed and told. You admitted that you f*cked up your career because you talk too damn much. And now you're hurt because someone sang about you? Mr brag-a-lot? Oh please. It's Taylor Swift. She's been doing this since the beggining, you're not the first. And it's out there that she does this, so why the hell are you so shocked and sad for. You act a fool, you get sung about boyo. Maybe she'll grow out of it, maybe she won't. But as for now, this is part of her shtick.

  13. 13

    It's a "war" now, Perez?? Really? An immature girl writing a song about another of her ex-boyfriends and the ex-boyfriend saying he didn't like the song is "war." You've been watching too many Housewives of ____________ shows. Not everything is Jerry Springer, Perez.

  14. 14

    Wow saw this coming a mile away. Knew she would write about him. Next is Jake. Watch!

  15. Sarah says – reply to this


    Incorrect, Perez. Stop trying to cause drama based on what you read in trashy tabloids. Witnesses have been correcting the story, saying there was no run-in or scene caused at all and swift may not have even seen Mayer there.

  16. 16

    Re: Elaine – since when can you not date however many people in your twenties???? her behavior is expectant of a college student, nothing is wrong with that. both are gaining publicity and money from the song and relationship, they should milk it for all its worth.

  17. 17

    Ok, they dated like 3 years ago, it's been almost 2 years since that song was released (although it was only on the record and not on the radio), and that wasn't even the only song written about him. The Story Of Us was also about her running into him at some country award show, so they have seen each other. They both need to get over it, although it wouldn't be an issue at all if Mayer never said anything, which was the source of his trouble way back in the first place.

  18. wtf says – reply to this


    Re: Elaine – Dating half the world? The fuck she hasn't had a boyfriend since Jake G, over a year and a half ago. Taylor dates less than the average girl lol. You people make up so much shit.

  19. didi says – reply to this


    I was there, article is way sensational, looked like she just asked to be seated somewhere else. It was kind of loud in there in the first place. She wasn't being snobby and demanding, she just kind of panicked for a moment, which I did too upon seeing her when I already seen all the other people there. I didn't even know about the rolling stone article then. She was with some other girl I didn't recognize.

  20. 20

    I find Taylor Swift to be so incredibly annyoing with her cutesy demeanor and for writing all these passive agressive songs. Yet when someone calls her out on her crap, it's not cool? Grow up.

  21. 21

    I do not understand why she was so shocked that they didn't work out when she knows his track record. Why the hell did she think she would be different? she is a child…her songs are pathetic. I won't deny the fact that she has a lot of talent…but her songs are disgusting. Grow up already Taylor, relationships end….its what happens

  22. 22

    Why are you on her side? She knew what she was getting into when she started dating him. It's not like it was a secret or anything. Isn't her 15 minutes of fame up already?

  23. Nida says – reply to this

    Country radio needs to drop her now

  25. 25

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, John Mayer is a douche!!! Douche bags do douche things, that is all they know what to do!! I wish he'd fall of the planet for good!!

  26. Vy says – reply to this


    Re: sarahbella246 – Um. Okay. Then don't 'stand her.' Ignore her.

    And only you know if you could ever call her 'bitch' to her face. How lowdown of you to call her names behind her back and without knowing her. I guess we know who the bitch really is. What a loser. waste of space.

  27. Vy says – reply to this


    Re: Elaine – Awfully childish? So she is wrong for reacting? She should have happily greeted him then? And who are you to say she didn't expect for him not to say anything about it? Maybe you need to check your definition of childish.

  28. Adam says – reply to this


    I have to laugh at the immature losers saying Taylor Swift is imature…that's the true joke. She has done more in her 22 years of life than any of you will in in its entirety. John Mayer is bringing this up now because he wants to sell albums, Taylor Swift couldn't care less about this old fool.

  29. McMuffin says – reply to this


    OK, she had to know she could possibly run into the guy before she put that song out. So you can't say she never brought that awkard situation on herself. What she never expected is that some guy would finally grow a pair and call her on her bullshit. Dude is in the perfect position to call her a snot, because if it takes one to know one~ then he is the guy for the job! He's admitted to his own douchebagery, why should he let her continue to get away with it at his expense??

  30. tswift says – reply to this


    listen he hurt a 19 year like she said she writes songs and he know getting a taste of his own medican

  31. sara says – reply to this


    Re: Elaine – she was 19 when they dated and thats her way she writes song and she rarely dates

  32. Swiftie13 says – reply to this


    John Mayer did not need to call her songwriting cheap! Look at her songwriting cheap! Look at how far it's gotten her. She writes about her life and that's how she chose to write the song. That's how their relationship was to her. It was her point of view of it. I respect her 100%, I am a huge Swiftie and what she has nothing to take back for what she wrote in that song. He's the one that shouldn't have called it cheap songwriting. Trust me, this is not cheap songwriting!

  33. Swiftie13 says – reply to this


    Keep in mind that she was 19 when she wrote the song, so don't call her childish!

  34. 34

    Debunked by Gossip Cop hours ago :

    Um… was it really “drama central”?

    Not at all.

    A Swift source tells Gossip Cop there was no “nasty confrontation,” adding that the only accurate part about the story is that the young singer was at the Tower Bar at time.

    Some people are saying they’re not sure Swift even saw Mayer at the restaurant, which has a dark interior eating area as well as an outdoor patio.

    Re: Elaine – I agree, she's a terrible songwriter and she really needs to grow up. Perez, stop kissing her ass.

  36. barny says – reply to this


    Taylor Swift is a NO TALENT piece of SHIT with a HUGE EGO.

  37. 37

    Re: AvaVaValdi – That was supposed to be a positive rating -_- But I agree with all of this. Pretty sure she has songs for 3 or 4 different guys on that same album, which is a little excessive when it comes to break up songs. Not every guy you date is going to marry you, and Taylor seems like she falls REALLY fast.

  38. Dinnyq says – reply to this


    They are both SO immature. He's a douche bag and she's a baby. She should have known he would be an ass to her when she dated him. That's typical of John. And he should have known she'd write a song about it when he dumped her. That's typical of Taylor. They need to get over it, they broke up years ago and it was only a few weeks!

  39. Jamie says – reply to this


    Um, he was 31-33 when he was dating a 19 year old, and thats inappropriate. He aims for women with the same mental age that he is permanently stuck in. And after he embarassed his exes, he totally earned the karma. Whether or not her music sucks is irrelevant. If the things she said in her songs about him weren't true, he wouldn't be so ridic about. The truth hearts, Perv-Mayer. Stick to women your own age, not 19-20 year olds. Gross.

  40. Dinnyq says – reply to this


    They are both SO immature. He's a douche bag with an ego bigger than his head and she's a baby who falls in love with any guy who looks at her. She should have known he would be an ass to her when she dated him. That's typical of John. And he should have known she'd write a song about it when he dumped her. That's typical of Taylor. They need to get over it, they broke up years ago and it was only a few weeks!

  41. 41

    everyone is saying for taylor to grow up.. but john is the one saying sh!t when the song was released 3 yrs ago! granted, they are both being immature about the whole situation, but im def team taylor!

  42. Dinnyq says – reply to this


    Re: Jamie – Ummm he didn't force her to date him….Who doesn't know John's a d!ck? He got a taste of his own medicine though, good for him!

    Team John All The Way!!!
    God This girl seriously is a whiny bitch!!

  45. me says – reply to this


    Ok 1 Taylor didnt "freak out" she calmy asked to be seated elsewhere. I would lose my appetite too if i had to sit next to my ex. And 2 she writes about her feelings and her breakups because thats the only way she can feel better. Dont be jealous just because yo dont freaking know how to deal with your feelings! So just SHUT UP!! Taylor is an ispiration to kids teens and even adults around the world and obviously you dont know her well enough to know that she wouldnt freak out over that. And john seriously needs to stop whining about everything. He knew this was going to happen and that she writes songs about exes, but if he didnt want her to write a song about him then why did he hurt her in the first place?! Oh yeah! Thats right! Because he is a player!!

  46. Jake says – reply to this


    So I guess everyone here doesn't feel bad or sad when someone treats them wrong? You act like if someone who used to be a big fan of yours said you suck now you'd feel okay? A lot of you are very annoying. #TeamTaylor

  47. 47

    TEAM TAYLOR. Mayer needs to stop crying about that song. Dating a songwriter can do that to you.At least it was a great, critically acclaimed one. He is not very bright.

    Big deal Taylor wanted some space from him? How is this even newsworthy?

  48. Xena says – reply to this


    John Mayer knows how to write songs.Girl that's why they invented telephony.Shame on you.Art is beautiful and your songs are a mockery.John Mayers new album is brilliant.i see his talent didn't rub on you when he rubbed you in.You go John

  49. sydneybee says – reply to this


    I totally agree with John and think she is out of line writing so transparently about her ex's. Seriously, "Dear John" as the title of the song?! How can she be surprised when someone with talent like John calls her out on the lack of creativity, she practically asked for it with that title. It IS cheap song writing and she clearly needs to grow up & out of her comfort zone. It's not that she doesn't have talent & a great voice, but she should use it productively to grow as an artist. That kind of writing is expected when she was 15/16 but she's in her twenties now- time to grow up. Honestly, no wonder she hasn't been able to keep a boyfriend. It seems that she is only waiting for her "innocent" heart to be broken once again so she can be inspired to write another song. Has she ever had a hit from a song that isn't her whining about being dumped? Sorry but I am O-V-E-R her crappy, sappy "love/heartache/yearning" songs, team John all the way.

  50. DanSingBear says – reply to this


    The real 'elephant in the room' is this : WITHOUT AUTOTUNE, put Mayer and a guitar in front of a mic and you will hear superb singing and musicianship. . . do the same w/ T.S. and you have cats fighting in a garbage can. I.E. if you've been paying attention at all, we've learned that w/o the controlled environment of BOTH the studio and her live gear she is a mediocre singer AT BEST. Which is not necessarily a rap on her skill as lyricist… she might be very good at that. And by the way there isn't one thing harmonically original in her songs (true of country in general)… whereas Mayer has often displayed genuine harmonic inventiveness, at least for pop.

    Re: sarahbella246Re: pareidolia

    Re: rosebud99

    What consequences? She never said John couldn't say anything back. Rosebud & Pareidolia, how is she childish? She acted very mature in my opinion. She hasn't said a single thing but instead opted to just move away from him. The press is blowing this out of proportion. She just asked for a table away from him. And Sarahbella, you're the one being a bitch. I can't believe you guys, WHAT CONSEQUENCES? She knew that they had the right to say something and Taylor hasn't said anything in remarks to John Mayer since then. ONCE AGAIN THE MEDIA DOES IT, blowing something way out of proportion.

  52. lan says – reply to this


    Re: sydneybee

    Several actually. Also, she was a teenager when she wrote this song at age 19.

    Mean, Mine, Our Song, Fearless, You Belong With Me, Enchanted, Sparks Fly, Speak Now, Fifteen,Ours

    Re: Victoria

    If you don't like her voice then that's fine, people have different taste, but if you say she's a terrible song writer, then you must not have heard a modern song. I'm still laughing my ass off that you said she's a terrible song writer. She's probably the best of this age.

  54. lan says – reply to this


    Re: Shannon92 – Hey shannon, welcome to the media. She probably just quietly asked to move to a different table. Once again the media blows things out of proportions.

    Re: sydneybee

    Also, aren't half of Johns songs about love anyways? Oops, I mean 99% of the music industry. That comment is invalid.

    Re: pareidolia – Yes! This. Well said.

  57. bryan says – reply to this


    Re: elle

    Well Taylor needs to grow up more (Kinda hard to say as a fan but that is a fact)
    And John well he knew what he was getting into dating Taylor.
    A Song is never far away so if you don't agree just go up to Taylor and Talk.
    But noooo everything needs to get out there via the media and take cheapshots first.

    And the problem isn't taylor in this Issue but JOHNNNNNNNNNNNNY boy

  58. bryan says – reply to this


    Most artists walk away with Taylor because she's herself in a Business dominated by Money/Ego.
    Still got her beautiful feet on the ground and never lost sight on who she is.
    That's hard to do in a Industry like that.
    I take my hat off for Taylor.
    Many Artists can learn from it

    move me to the other side now MOVE ME NOWWWWWWWWW NOW NOWWWWWW
    grow the fuc up

  60. 60

    John Mayer needs to grow a pair and shut the hell up! She called him out for being a womanizer (something we already knew about him), so he has no one to blame for Taylor's song other than himself. Besides, he doesn't mind humiliating HIS ex-girlfriends by blabbing about them (or their bedroom habits), so what J.M. is suggesting is that he can burn and embarrass whomever he chooses, but God forbid one of those girls bites back. Asshole!

    If it was with me I just leave the restaurant before slap him in the face!!!!!!!!!1

  62. Buffy says – reply to this


    It BLOWS my mind how stupid some of you haters are. You obviously haven't been in a relationship if you're telling Taylor Swift to grow up.

    TELL ME THIS: If YOU saw an ex who violated you in some manner, had sex with you, and was disrespectful and a complete jerk to you, would you sit across from him at a restaurant?

    Taylor has the RIGHT to move away from John Mayer. He's the one who damaged the relationship. Who cares if she wrote a song about him? Do you see HER talking about him publicly in tabloids? Her song doesn't count. She doesn't state his full name. Of course people know it's about him, but do you see her name-dropping him in interviews? NO. Because their relationship is nobody else's business. John was the one who dug up the past. Her song is 2 years old. SHE IS over it.

    I can tell you that, 90% of people who break up DO NOT have good friendships with their exes. So don't give her the grown up speech until you've actually been in a relationship.

  63. Leann Sellers says – reply to this


    OH NO NO NO.

    Okay FIRST off, she makes $$$ for writing these songs and helps other girls and boys by writing them. This happened idk, 2/3 years ago and he is JUST now saying something about it? Doesn't add up. Sounds to me like he is trying to raise some hype for an upcoming release of an album or something. If not, this would have been hashed out awhile back. I completely support Taylor and I know for a fact that she is not the dramatic type, especially in public. These are rumors, she probably sat down quietly and didn't say a word. If she DID request to be seated somewhere else it was probably silent and some eavesdropper probably made it out to be something else. Lets be honest, who wants to sit near their ex? If she even did say anything, which I highly highly doubt!

  64. Veronica says – reply to this


    Re: sarahbella246 – There has never been any confirmation that this song was to John Mayer, and shes being the classier person by not calling him out on what he has said about her. If he was the real adult he could have just confronted her instead of publicizing it.

  65. 65

    Taylor writes songs about her love life all the time & does John Mayer have his own app with millions of fans on it??????????????????????????????????? who agree w/ me???????????????????????? + that song has been out 4 what almost 2 years now …………….BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & none of this shisnit would've started if he would've just kept his BIG MOUTH SHUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. 66

    Re: BuffyRe: Veronica – & a LOT of others thnx 4 being w/ Taylor she didn't start any of this CRAZ STUPID RETARDED SHISNIT

  67. Morgaine says – reply to this


    Mayer is trying to drum up interest in his new album and he's riding Taylor's coat tails to do it. She has never confirmed that the song is about him. The slam about her songwriting was really beyond the pale - that's a great song, and she has the same right as any other artist to write about her own experiences. I'm tired of all the ageism and the misogyny that gets directed at her. She's a talented artist, and that album spans several genres of music and does them each very well.

  68. Gurl Please says – reply to this


    I think you're all being immature about this. Are you saying that Taylor is immature for putting her feelings on paper? It's called artisitc lisence. She writes lyrics that mean something to a lot of poeple. She doesn't even create this drama, she just lives her lives and the tabloids make a big deal out of it. I think she's quite mature for putting her feelings on paper and having the courage to put it out there. It takes a strong person to put yourself out there like that. We don't even know if that's actually how she reacted in the situation. John has good music, but so far he's done more bad than good in his personal life. But either way it's their personal life, so who are you guys to bash them about it when you only know what tabloids and people you don't even know are saying. Grow up.
