London: Singer-songwriter John Mayer is reportedly sending `flirty` messages to Rihanna.
The 35-year-old `Waiting on the World to Change` hitmaker has recently split from singer Katy Perry, reported Daily star.
"She was really shocked when she heard from John. Even though he`s been chasing for years, she thought it was far too soon after his split with Katy.
"Rihanna said his texts were very sexy and flirty, with him suggesting they`d have hours of fun together. He was very complimentary about her Twitter photos," said a source.
It was reported that Mayer had earlier tried to impress Rihanna, 25, after her split with Chris Brown and also at a New York industry event in 2009.
