Santa Barbara warbler Katy Perry is one of the highest-earning performers in the world, but could the former Dos Pueblos High student be sporting a fake gold Rolex watch on her wrist?
Her off-on-off beau, rocker John Mayer, is suing Los Angeles jewelry dealer and Harvard graduate Robert Maron, who happens to be a friend of actor Charlie Sheen's, over passing off several allegedly phony watches.
According to reports, questionable timepieces could have ended up not on just Kay's wrist, but also those of Jessica Simpson and former Friends star Jennifer Anniston, both former romantic interests of Mayer, who started buying watches from Maron in 2007.
But in 2010 the Grammy winner discovered one of the pieces -which cost anywhere from $25,000 to more than $40,000 -was not authentic when he sent it back to get it repaired.
Mayer then returned the watch and was given a credit to buy another, according to reports, which say he spent $5 million in total on multiple watches from the dealer.
Mayer is said to be looking for a refund of $656,000 on seven other watches he purchased that he claims are counterfeit.
