‘I Haven’t Heard From Him Since He Texted Me’: Katy Perry Reveals Russell Brand Asked For Divorce Via Text

Katy Perry opens up about her love life in a new candid interview with Vogue magazine, where she revealed her ex-husband Russell Brand ended their 14 month marriage over text message.

The 28 year-old has always kept quiet about why her marriage ended but it appears she finally discusses the split in the latest issue of the fashion bible, where according to she admits not having spoken to Brand since he asked her for a divorce in Decemeber 2011.

“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry said. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”

Revealing more about their relationship the star admitted after being initially attracted by the outrageous funnyman she found some of his humour off putting when they were married.

“Hysterical in some ways,” she claimed when asked about the Brit’s sense of humour, “Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows.”

“So. Hysterical to a point.”

Insisting though it wasn’t all his fault they split she went on: “I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie.”

Katy Perry: A Part Of Me 3D was filmed during the breakdown of the marriage and was released just weeks after the couple’s divorce was finalised. Claiming it was a pretty good indicator of how their relationship broke down she went on: “That wasn’t edited to leave footage out—there wasn’t any footage of him.”

Admitting the strength of each other’s characters may have had an influence on the end of the marriage, it appears the two were often in conflict with one another.

“At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness,” she mused, “He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting.”

Going on to discuss the reason behind the end of her marriage, she revealed we’ll never know the real reason: “I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.”

Admitting she was over the relationship Katy added: “I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”

Moving on to her more recent romance with John Mayer it appears the raven haired beauty has more of an emotional connection, telling the magazine she was “was madly in love with him” and admitted she still is.

The couple began dating last summer before a brief split in September. While things appeared to be getting more serious the lovebirds were over again by March this year.

Describing the 38 year-old rocker as having a “beautiful mind,” and “tortured soul,” it appears Perry holds more than just a torch for the Wonderland singer and with recent reports they may be back together, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this couple back on again.
