We’d never thought of John Mayer as one of those kids in the neighborhood your mom didn’t want you to play with.
But apparently we were wrong.
We hear that the mom of one of his buddies recently gave the star a good telling off for being “a bad influence” on her boy.
You may remember the star of MTV’s Fantasy Factory, Rob Dyrdek, being carried out of a club by John back in June.
It turned out to be a stunt the boys had dreamed up to mess with the paparazzi. But even so, the incident didn’t go down too well with Mrs. Drydek. And it took all of John’s legendary charm to get himself out of her bad books.
“My mother was so disappointed,” Rob told OK! the other day.
“She went to instantly not liking him and thinking he was a bad influence on me,” said the pro skater, whose misspent adulthood is documented in the Fantasy Factory.
“She used to be like, ‘John Mayer’s so great!’. And then after that she was like, ‘No John! I don’t care how famous you are, John.'”
“My mom knows that the paparazzi ain’t chasing me, and that me going out with him and acting like I was drunk — like he influenced me to be the guy getting carried out of the club.
“She was like, ‘John, how come you didn’t get carried out of a club?’.
“I got the bad end of it.”
