Russell Brand Is “Devastated” By Katy Perry’s Comments On Their Divorce

Katy Perry made some recent comments to Vogue magazine about her divorce to Russell Brand, namely that the last time she communicated with him was when he asked her for a divorce via text. This “devastated” him. Here’s why, from The Huffington Post:

He’s devastated by what Katy has said, given that they’ve been in contact on numerous occasions. He can’t understand why she would say all these things.

A few things can happen now:

– Katy Perry says she was misquoted.
– Russell Brand denies this story.
– Katy Perry clarifies her comments with, “We’ve been in contact but only about legal matters” blah blah.

Interesting that Brand didn’t address the part of the interview where Perry got all mysterious and ominous about the “real truth” behind their divorce.

Mr. Brand has said only very kind things about Ms. Perry since their split. He’s said that he “loved” being married to her and that she is, “a lovely beautiful person.”

Here Are Russell Brand’s Requirements For A Wife

Russell Brand wants to get married again. I didn’t take sides in the Katy Perry/Russell Brand split, but after hearing that he asked for a divorce via text, I’m team Katy. But if that doesn’t bother you and you’d like to be the new Mrs. Russell Brand, here’s what he’s looking for. From The Mirror:

I would like to marry again and have a family. I am looking for my future wife. I hope she’s kind and sweet and sexually adventurous. I don’t ask for much, do I?

He’s apparently dating some chick named Alessandra Balazs who is 23 and is Chelsea Handler’s stepdaughter. Here is what she looks like:

She really puts the “girl” in “girlfriend.”

In case you were curious, Russell Brand is 38.

Russell Brand Won’t Be Heading to the Middle East Anytime Soon

Russell Brand has decided to cancel an upcoming stand-up show to the Middle East, I guess over “safety concerns”. What concerns exist now that didn’t when he first booked the thing is beyond me, but whatever. He was planning to head to Lebanon and Abu Dhabi in August, which is sort of hilarious because I can’t see his humour translating to their audience – especially since much of it doesn’t even translate in the Western world.

From BBC Radio 5:

“Those gigs have been banned, pulled because of threats from extremists that if I went there, there would be problems.

“The venue contacted us and said we can no longer guarantee your safety.”

Well, can’t argue with that. However, the ‘Messiah Complex’ tour will continue around the world and will end in Reykjavik, Iceland in December, so here’s still a chance for you to see Russell live, if that’s your bag. Admittedly, I watched him on Question Time last night and the man knows how to speak. I hate myself for saying that, but it’s true.
