Katy Perry Responds to 'Catfish' Victim: 'My Heart Goes Out to Him'

He might not be dating Katy Perry, but at least now she knows his name.
That's right, the 31-year-old pop star is aware of the man who believed he had been dating her for the last six years, admitting she finds the situation "very sad."
Perry appeared on Sirius XM's "Morning Mashup" on Thursday, when the hosts asked her if she had seen the Catfish episode, where Spencer from Tennessee was convinced he and Perry were in love.
"Yes, somebody sent me a link," she revealed. "I didn't actually read through it, because I just think it's really unfortunate and very sad."
Perry further commented on the ruse when one of the hosts implied that Spencer, who went so far as to make Perry an engagement ring using his great-grandmother's emerald, wasn't "wide awake."
"Yeah, you know, not everyone can be, but I think that, you know, my heart goes out to him, actually," she said, "because anybody that's been fooled like that or just you know… People have dreams, and people live in different parts of the world where not everything is as accessible."
"Like, we live on the coast, and you know, we get stuff in a way that some other people don't get, and so I feel bad for him," she elaborated. "And so I didn't really like to indulge in that, because my heart would die."
In the Catfish episode, the show's hosts, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, broke the news to Spencer that he had actually been communicating with a woman named Heather who lives in England.
Perry, meanwhile, was in Italy, enjoying her very real relationship with Orlando Bloom.
