It was always pretty obvious that Katy Perry‘s split from Russell Brand wasn’t all that friendly, and it was also obvious that Russell asked for a divorce in a pretty messed up way: via a text message. Katy sang about it in her song ‘Ghost’ on the Prism album and has mentioned it once or twice in interviews before. And while a couple of years have passed out and both have moved on to new relationships, Katy and Russell are still pretty frosty.
From The Daily Telegraph:
CK: Have you spoken to Brand at all since your divorce?
KP: He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say.
CK: You seem to have rebounded very strongly from heartbreak over the last several years. Are you stronger than ever?
KP: I’m one of those people that likes to be fearless. We bungee-jumped in New Zealand on one tour. We go to water-parks and do things like that because I have a little fearless invincibility streak in me. I don’t like to live in fear because that traps you and your voices. Fear is a control tactic in the world that is negative and depressing and I don’t want to be associated with it.
I mean, I don’t feel like that’s particularly rare. How many couples who divorce after a short time and that have no children together actually go on to become buddies? This relationship is old news, so I’m sure Katy would appreciate if people would stop asking her about it just as much as we’d prefer not to read about it.
