It probably won't come as a great surprise that the man who appeared on Wednesday night's episode of MTV's Catfish thinking he was dating Katy Perry, was not in fact dating the pop superstar. He was being catfished.
The show's focus, Spencer, says he had been talking to a woman claiming to be Katy Perry for the past six years and was so smitten that he even bought her an engagement ring using his grandmother's emerald. He had started messaging her using a texting app and, basically, just fell for the whole thing. She lured him along with emails and, once, a phone call that cost him more than $200 to a Canadian cell phone because, you know, she claimed to be touring in Canada at the time.
