Katy Perry Says Russell Brand Asked For Divorce By Text, Knows 'Real Truth' Now
Katy Perry dished about her high-profile relationships with ex-husband comedian and actor Russell Brand, and singer-songwriter John Mayer in a recent interview with Vogue magazine.
Perry married Brand in 2010, when the pop star says she “was in love with him.” Perry admits Brand's sense of humor was a point of attraction for her “until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience.” She sees his desire to make jokes at her expense as a result of being uncomfortable with her success, saying that Brand initially was attracted to the idea of being with an equal at then felt, “I can’t handle the equalness.”
Fourteen months after they wed, Perry received a text message from Brand saying that he wanted a divorce. At first Perry blamed herself, but then says she “found out the real truth” behind the split – something she claims she “can’t necessarily disclose.”
Where Mayer was concerned, Perry had more kind words to share, saying that she “was [and is] madly in love with him.” Though she says that he has a “tortured soul,” she also believes he has a “beautiful mind. Perry claims that the relationship is officially over and not in another one of it’s off-phases, adding “I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
