Kiernan Shipka was spotted with John Mayer
Kiernan Shipka is best known for starring in Mad Men as Sally Draper and in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as Sabrina. Meanwhile, John Mayer is a Grammy-winning musician who’s had top charting songs and albums over the years.
Recently, the two seemed to be spending some quality time together in L.A. this Thursday. People are again curious how this pairing came to be as Kiernan Shipka is 22 right now and John Mayer is 44.
They were seen together by the Tower Bar located inside the Sunset Tower Hotel. Kiernan Shipka and John Mayer also hugged goodbye. The duo was chatting in a friendly manner, indicating that they were quite close. But you know, even friends are close like this.
Apart from being linked with Christian Coppola, BJ Novak, and Lukas Gage, Kiernan Shipka has actually dated Charlie Oldman. However, they have broken up on good terms.
As for John Mayer, he’s had a long history of dating very famous women in Hollywood and multiple controversies
In 2006, he dated and broke up with Jennifer Love-Hewitt and made some sexist remarks in a stand-up routine. He said that he never got to have sexual intercourse with Hewitt because of her food poisoning. Later on, he apologized for the comments.
In 2008, he broke up with Jennifer Aniston and he shared the news with the world by holding his own press conference saying:
“I’m the a–hole. I burned the American flag. I basically murdered an ideal”
Many didn’t like his comments. Mayer also apologized for these comments saying that he only wanted to take responsibility.
In 2009, he was interviewed by Vulture Christianna Ablahad where she said that Barack Obama’s peace prize was premature. To that, Mayer responded by saying:
“I love you, you’re beautiful, but shut your f—ing mouth. You’re not building a journalistic career. You’re making yourself look like a moron and you’re not a moron. I’m going to forcefully sodomize your editor.”
In 2010, he made some misogynistic comments in an interview with Rolling Stone. He called himself the “new generation of masturb-tors” and that he was looking for a woman with a beautiful v*gina:
Aren’t we talking about a matrix of a couple of different things here? Like, you need to have them be able to go toe-to-toe with you intellectually,. But don’t they also have to have a vagina you could pitch a tent on and just camp out on for, like, a weekend? Doesn’t that have to be there, too? The Joshua Tree of vaginas?”
He also had an interview with PlayBoy the same year where he called his girlfriend Jessica Simpson “s-xual napalm”:
“That girl, for me, is a drug. And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, s-xual napalm.”
Simpson has said that she felt “embarrassed” at reading the article:
“He talked about me by name in the most degrading terms. I scanned it more than I read it, horrified at whatever paragraph my eyes landed on.”
John Mayer also made racist remarks and used the n slur in the same Playboy interview:
“Someone asked me the other day, ‘What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” Mayer said. “And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n—– pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, ‘I can’t have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.'”
And when Mayer was asked if Black women “throw themselves at him”, he responded saying:
“I don’t think I open myself to it. My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist.”
When asked about whether he ever kissed a man, he responded:
“I remember seeing Perez Hilton flitting about this club and acting as though he had just invented homosexuality. All of a sudden I thought, I can out-gay this guy right now. I grabbed him and gave him the dirtiest, tongue-iest kiss I have ever put on anybody — almost as if I hated fa**ots.”
In 2012, he also called Taylor Swift’s song about him ‘Dear John’ “cheap songwriting” and said that he didn’t deserve it:
“It made me feel terrible. Because I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.”
For context, Taylor was just 19 and he was 32.
So, John Mayer has had a very controversial past. And considering the age difference between Kiernan and John, the public is very concerned. But they’re probably just friends hanging out. In Kiernan Shipka’s latest Instagram Posts, she has tagged Christian Coppola. This gives a big hint that they’re still probably dating.
