John Mayer once tried to pick up pop starlet Jessie James by text-messaging her, "Let me tuck you in."
James told "Boomer & Craig" on WFAN Sports Radio that she met the singer-songwriter in Manhattan.
"He had someone send for me [from] across the room," James related. "He had a bunch of girls with him and he said, 'We should [all] go back to my apartment.' "
She said Mayer left first to avoid the paparazzi, and when they got to Mayer's apartment, "We were all hanging out and everyone started to gradually leave. It was just he and I at this point. I told him, 'I need some taxi money, I'm gonna go home now.' "
Mayer asked James for her number and she gave it to him before leaving.
She recalled, "He texted me throughout the entire night while I was at the hotel room," leaving messages like, "Let me tuck you in. I want to see you."
While the show's hosts labeled Mayer "a douche," a friend of his shrugged it off, "He met her two years ago, it was not a big deal."
