It looks like Diplo's mom, Barbara Pentz, wants to get to get to the bottom of all this Katy Perry chisme (we call it gossip) that's been popping up after this year's Coachella.
Momma Diplo gave an interview to Radar online recently saying lightheartedly "He hasn’t mentioned bringing her home to mama just yet. But I think he would before it gets serious. Of course, she’s got to be grilled by the mom!”
Diplo and Katy Perry were seen hanging out backstage of Coachella, and again at an Amazing Spiderman 2 afterparty out in New York.

According to the Radar interview, Diplo has talked about Perry to his dad, saying ‘we’re just hanging out. We’re just friends right now.’” So it looks like they are taking it slow for the time being.
Mom doesn't seem to think that it's too serious either. “I don’t think it’s a big deal right now. I don’t think they’ll be wedding bells yet. They’re both doing their own things right now and on opposite coasts. He doesn’t seem to be making a big deal about it”.
As far as the relationship being something just to get their names in the papers, Momma Dips says "I wondered if it was a publicity stunt. It did occur to me. They both do like the cameras!”.
As for now though, she doesn't seem to be too concerned, and has given Katy Perry a preliminary thumbs up. Not that it matters though, as she goes on to say “He’s a 30-something-year-old man. He wouldn’t listen to me anyway if I told him what to do!”.
