Katy Perry & Diplo Dating For Publicity? Why Those Close To The DJ Say You Shouldn't Be Waiting To Hear 'Wedding Bells' For These Two!

katy perry diplo dating for publicity why we shouldnt be waiting for wedding bells

Whoa, this is NOT the kind of thing you want your new beau's mother saying!

Makes us think that Katy Perry won't be throwing Diplo's mom a Birthday party anytime soon!

Barbara Pentz, aka Diplo's mommabear, gave a pretty telling interview about her son's relationship with the pop princess!

In it, she actually accused them of dating one another for publicity!

What the WHAT?!?!

She dished:

“I don’t think it’s a big deal right now. I don’t think they’ll be wedding bells yet. They’re both doing their own things right now and on opposite coasts. He hasn’t discussed it with me, but he did with his dad. He said ‘we’re just hanging out. We’re just friends right now.’ He doesn’t seem to be making a big deal about it. I wondered if it was a publicity stunt. It did occur to me. They both do like the cameras."

But… if she's never met KP, then how would Barbara know if she "likes the cameras?"

Kind of a contradiction, no?

Anyway, Barbara went on to gush about her son's blossoming relationship.

She said:

“She seems like a lovely girl. He hasn’t mentioned bringing her home to mama just yet. But I think he would before it gets serious. Of course, she’s got to be grilled by the mom! [But] he’s a 30-something-year-old man. He wouldn’t listen to me anyway if I told him what to do! He’s always been a strong-willed young man ever since he was little. She’s rebelling from her parents a little too, so I read."

Innnnneresting! We wonder if these two will reach the "meet the parents" stage

Katy DID just reveal that she's "deep into Tindr" these days, so that can't be a good sign!

We'll just have to wait to see if their fling will stand the test of time!

    @nana no actually. If you do your research you'll see he had a son with an EXgirlfriend and he ditched both of them, never sees them

    I also heard from a friend that used to regularly bone him in NYC that he is pretty much a sex addict and will screw any rat that crawls out the trash can. He is a groupie for celebrities cause he wants to be in those circles so bad. I remember him bragging to GQ magazine about how he doesn't take women on dates and from what I hear he NEVER took his ex girlfriends on dates either but all of a sudden a celeb chick comes along and they're going on DATES, if so, he is putting up a front. The mother said it right, PUBLICITY STUNT, although I do believe they probably boned!

    I've met Diplo a few times (b/c I'm a big fan of his music, not a groupie) and he has an open relationship with his baby's mama. @emily, he does see them when he isn't performing all around the world. he flies home to spend time with them. check his instagram! He does hook up with young, groupies sometimes (or so they've told me on HolyShip.) I'm sure this Katy Perry thing is a publicity stunt/music colab. He dated M.I.A. back in the day.

    I don't know much about Diplo but if these comments in here are correct then in the words of the guys in that old movie "Wayne's World" … he's not worthy!

    You can do better Katy. You don't have to settle for another "bad boy" who will probably end up screwing you over again. Get out there in the singles scene and look high and low for someone who is perfect for you. He's out there somewhere.

    I had sex with him for two years, all the while he was with his baby mama. And it's definitely not an open relationship, and she definitely had no idea what was going on. Although she must have known because I wasn't even close to being the only one. He's a complete slut no questions asked. Do i think he screwed Katy Perry? YES. Do I think they're dating? NO. But he's desperate to be a celebrity. He has the lowest self esteem ever. And his mom definitely did not give an interview. She knows kathryn well and also they live in bumfuck Florida. What reporter could find them???
