Katy Perry Is “Devastated” Over The Death Of Ex Johnny Lewis

Published On September 28, 2012 | Celeb Facts, Celebrities

Johnny Lewis, an actor on FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and Katy Perry’s ex-boyfriend (the couple dated from 2005-2006) passed away recently and since finding out about his passing, the singer is said to be “devastated.”

“She had to separate from him . . . to get ahead and focus on her career,” a source told US Weekly. “He was in trouble then and she couldn’t help him. A lot of her songs were partially inspired by him. I know ‘The One That Got Away’ and ‘Circle the Drain’ are partly about him, as well as Travis [McCoy of Gym Class Heroes]. But she was young and it was a time in her life she cherishes.”

“They had good times. It’s really sad. She could never help him and couldn’t [let herself] go in that direction,” the source added.

Lewis’s body was discovered on Wednesday (September 26th) after he fell or jumped off of a rooftop following an altercation with his landlady. Lewis is believed to have beaten his 81-year-old landlady to death.

In a shocking statement by ‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter, he revealed that he was not shocked by Lewis’s actions. “It was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way,” Sutter wrote. “I wish I could say that I was shocked by the events last night, but I was not.”

Well …

R.I.P. Johnny Lewis … & to Katy Perry, we hope that she can make it through this rough patch in her life.
