Katy Perry’s new man

Katy Perry’s new man Rob Ackroyd has been busy meeting her friends in Los Angeles.

The Florence and the Machine guitarist – who was introduced to Katy through mutual friends Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart – has extended his stay in the US so he can get acquainted with her inner circle.

The couple were first spotted together at California festival Coachella earlier this month, and were recently seen enjoying dinner at Hollywood’s exclusive Chateau Marmont hotel with her friends, stylist Johnny Wujek and actors Shannon Woodward and Markus Molinari.

A source told The Sun newspaper, “Rob had his arm around Katy while the group were chatting. He looked very at ease. It’s early days but she’s confident it may be going somewhere.”

Meanwhile, Rob’s friends have been mercilessly teasing the musician since news of the relationship broke.

Quoting lyrics to Katy’s hit I Kissed a Girl, one pal wrote on Rob’s facebook page, “Did you kiss a girl and like it? The taste of her cherry chapstick?”

Referring to Katy’s ex-husband, Russell Brand – who she split from in December 2011 – another friend wrote, “I’m guessing there is probably f**k all chance of you getting an autograph off Russell Brand now.”
