Russell Brand 'hurt by Katy's comments'

Russell Brand

Russell Brand reportedly “can’t understand” why Katy Perry said certain things about their failed marriage in an interview with US Vogue.

The stars were married for just 14 months before they split at the end of 2011. In a candid interview with US Vogue, Katy revealed she couldn’t disclose the “real truth” about why her marriage to Russell had ended and claimed they were no longer in contact. According to insiders, Russell was deeply hurt by Katy’s comments about their failed relationship.

“He’s devastated by what Katy has said, given that they’ve been in contact on numerous occasions,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “He can’t understand why she would say all these things.”

During the revealing chat with Vogue, the 28-year-old spoke about why the union had failed. Katy claimed Russell hadn’t liked her being his “equal” and hinted at a dark secret behind their divorce.

“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,” she said. “I let go and I was like: 'This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me.' So I have moved on from that.”

Katy also said she hadn’t heard from her former spouse since he had sent her a text on December 31, 2011 “saying he was divorcing me".

Since the split, both stars have moved on and dated other people. Katy has been romantically linked to Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson and had an on-off relationship with musician John Mayer.

Russell’s latest romance seems to be getting serious. Last week he reportedly took 23-year-old hotel heiress Alessandra Balazs to the UK to meet his mother Barbara.
