Katy Perry - Katy Perry Dating Ryan Gosling Lookalike: Who Is He?

Katy Perry was photographed in a passionate embrace with the British rocker Robert Ackroyd at the Coachella Festival this past weekend, leaving fans of the pop superstar anxious to find out more about the little known guitarist.
Perry - who split from comedian Russell Brand after just 14 months of marriage - was photographed kissing the British musician while they watched Rihanna perform at the Californian festival. The couple were also snapped walking hand-in-hand through the crowd, with Katy looking happy and relaxed in shorts and a sheer blouse. So, who is her latest flame? Well, Ackroyd is best known as the guitarist with Florence And The Machine - the indie pop group fronted by Florence Welch. He has a Twitter following of 3,365 followers and regularly tweets about his love for music, as well as his football team Tottenham Hotspur. Many fans have noted his distinct likeness to the Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling. During an interview with Roland, Ackroyd revealed how he was invited to play with Florence by the Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell who was working with the band at the time, saying, "At the time I was working for a production company in Soho and was desperate for a change of scenery. I'd seen her (Welch) at The Metro on Oxford Street and had been impressed, so it was an opportunity to seize". In the same interview, Ackroyd spoke about his musical influences, picking Bruce Springsteen as his favorite guitarist in the world.
Perry announced her split from Russell Brand at the end of December, with their divorce expected to be finalized around July 2012.
