While it's become clear that their sudden split hit Katy hard - especially since it was by text - we had no idea how hard!
She was so hurt by it all that she actually had suicidal thoughts! The Roaring pop princess opened up to Billboard magazine about her song By the Grace of God and how it speaks about her life during that split:
"That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?' All the songs are real-life moments. I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs."
We can't even imagine what Katy was going through, but we're so glad she's come out stronger!
And now that she's happily enjoying a life full of success with her AH-Mazing new music and her romance with John Mayer, we're guessing that past is nothing but a memory.
We hope anyone else struggling with thoughts like this can come out the other end just like Katy!
