Katy Perry is reportedly dating Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
The 27-year-old 'Firework' singer - who split with Russell Brand in December after just 14-months of marriage - was apparently overheard referring to Robert as her ''boyfriend'' at California's Coachella festival earlier this month.
A source told Life & Style magazine: ''Backstage at the Artist Lounge at Coachella last weekend, Katy kept saying her boyfriend was the guitar player for Florence + the Machine.
''She and a bunch of friends were supposed to go see Dr. Dre together, but Katy said she was waiting to watch her boyfriend perform.''
He wrote: ''Best Coachella ever. Scratch that, best weekend ever. Dre, Snoop, Pac, Nate, Fiddy & KP.''
The 'Hot and Cold' hitmaker has previously been linked with CHANEL model Baptiste Giabiconi, while her soon-to-be ex-husband Russell - who insists he is ''doing well'' following the collapse of their marriage - has already moved on with model Nikolett Barabas.
Talking about his positive attitude to the split, Russell recently explained: ''I don't have to let anything go. I don't hold on to anything negative. It's the same as zero-ness.
''It's not about letting it go. You can't let go of something you don't hold, you know. It's meaningless, [and] much of our world is predicated on meaninglessness. And I don't do that anymore.''
