Oooh, this is risky. Katy Perry‘s new boyfriend Robert Ackroyd is planning to move to Los Angeles to make his relationship to the singer work. Robert, who is a guitarist for Florence + the Machine, fell in love with with Katy at the Coachella music festival and the two have been inseparable ever since. Perry knows that it’s a risky move for Ackroyd to move out to LA because she doesn’t want to go through the same agony again as she did with Russell Brand.
“Katy doesn’t want to make the same mistakes she made with Russell,” a source revealed. “The long distance thing didn’t work so if she’s going to settle down again, it needs to be with someone who can be close at hand when she needs them. It will also take some compromising on her part. But Rob is making the move overseas towards the end of the year. It seems really sudden, but it’s now or never for them.
The source continues that Katy’s work, promoting her movie Katy Perry: Part Of Me and her new single Wide Awake, has kept the two away from each other, as they are both very busy. But the move will definitely see them being able to be together more often: “They’ve spent the majority of the past few months apart, so in one way it will actually be a test of their relationship to be around each other so much.”
Robert is expected to move to LA in October, once the band goes on their break.
