Hmm.. we don't know if we really believe this or not.
It's not that we don't think Russell would give up his model friend for another chance with Katy… it's more like she's a strong, grown ass woman who knows how to learn from her past.
Still, sources say they've been talking more than ever following her split with John Mayer, saying:
"Russell may appear like a comic book character, but he’s got a wise head on his skinny shoulders. Katy reached out to him after she split with John, bemoaning her luck with men and Russell provided her with some much-needed reassurance. He flattered her with compliments and just listened to her every word. Russell also used his wit to cheer Katy up. They were the best of friends when they were together, and despite the fact they are no longer married they’ve managed to stay civil to one another."
But again… that doesn't mean they have to get back together, right?
"She's very respectful of Russell’s reasons for their break-up and would never overstep the line by begging for him to come back. But she does, however, think that he was definitely the love of her life. It’s left a lot of people wondering if she thinks that she could have fought harder to save their marriage."
LOL! We think he should have fought harder for HER!
And we're not exactly understanding the point of the line "[she] would never overstep the line by begging for him to come back" because that goes without saying!!
If they're able to maintain a civil friendship, we think that's great. But we'd hate to see her dipping her toes into treacherous territory again.
Give that heart a vacation, gurl!!
