Travie, 31, took a trip down memory lane, remembering happier times with Katy, 27. "We looked really cute together," he says. "We get along better than any other girl I've ever hung out with in my life. That was the beginning of a really really awesome time for me ... When I was around her I felt really at ease and comfortable with myself ... It was the most amazing thing ever."
But you know what they say, all good things must come to an end; and as Katy's career began to skyrocket, she had to leave her druggie boyfriend behind. "She wasn't stupid," McCoy says. "She knew when I was f--ked up I chose drugs over our relationship."
Travie admits he felt neglected and insecure as Katy enjoyed more and more success, revealing, "As things started taking off for her the more I started to doubt my role in her life. There were times I felt like a stepping ladder."
And then there was the unceremonious breakup email. "It started off with 'I love you so much I hate to do this,'" the singer recalls. "Someone that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with sends you a f--king email just s--ting on your whole parade. It destroyed me," he admits. McCoy had previously gifted Katy a promise ring with a vow that they would spend the rest of their lives together.
