AceShowbiz - Rocker John Mayer raised eyebrows on Monday, July 30, after posting a flirty comment on singer Halsey's Instagram page.
The Closer hitmaker, who split from rapper G-Eazy in early July, turned up the heat over the weekend, July 28, by hosting Playboy's Midsummer Night's Dream party at the Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas, where she showed her ex what he's missing by hitting the red carpet in sexy black lingerie.
She shared some steamy shots from the night on Instagram on Sunday, and followed them up with a more suggestive post on Monday, when Halsey uploaded a snap of a cherry and its stem, which had been tied into a knot, presumably with her tongue - a party trick skill which is said to indicate people who are good kissers or good at oral sex.
"Cherry stem champ. 4 seconds flat," she captioned the image. "F**k wit ya girl (sic)."
John Mayer was among the followers to comment on her saucy post, making a sex-related quip of his own, remarking, "I can make a Snickers bar appear".
The 23-year-old pop star has yet to publicly respond to John, but his message didn't go unnoticed by fans, who either replied suggestively to the singer/songwriter or criticised him for hitting on Halsey so openly.
It's not the first time John, 40, has used social media to interact with female artists he's attracted to - last September (17), he exchanged flirty Twitter messages with Nicki Minaj.
"I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not," he told fans.
"Would my body be your wonderland? Asking for a friend," she cheekily responded, referring to his 2001 track Your Body Is a Wonderland, which he reportedly wrote as a tribute to his ex-girlfriend, actress Jennifer Love Hewitt.
"Please hold, losing my s**t," John wrote back. "This isn't my reply yet."
They didn't trade any further messages publicly, but John is no stranger to high-profile relationships, having also dated stars like Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, and Katy Perry in the past.
