When the tragic news hit that Son of Anarchy and The OC actor Johnny Lewis had died, we learned that Katy Perry back in 2006 dated Lewis. This relationship went on for 18 months. He was with Katy before she became famous, and it’s believed that he was an inspiration early on in her career. He was on the wrong path then, which is what ultimately broke the two up.
A source told Us Magazine: “She is devastated. She had to separate from him to get ahead and focus on her career. He was in trouble then and she couldn’t help him. A lot of her songs were partially inspired by him.
This source close to Katy went on to say: “I know ‘The One That Got Away’ and ‘Circle the Drain’ are partly about him, as well as Travis McCoy. But she was young and it was a time in her life she cherishes.”
It’s very sad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Johnny Lewis’s family and friends. May he R.I.P..
