Russell Brand: I love Katy
Russell Brand "still loves" his estranged wife Katy Perry.
The two stars are in the process of getting divorced after their 14-month marriage broke down last December. Despite being the one who filed the papers at the end of last year, Russell insists he has nothing but affection for the songstress.
"I still love her as a human being. But, sometimes when you're in a relationship I suppose it doesn't work out, does it? But that doesn't mean I regret it or anything," he said in an interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I was very happy to be married with her. She's such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."
Katy is thought to be dating Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, after they were seen smooching at a recent music festival.
Russell doesn't harbour any bitter feelings towards his ex-lover.
"You can't absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes things are just different and then you just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation," he gushed, before adding that she is "a person I still consider to be beautiful... I have nothing but positivity for her."
Russell caused a stir late last week when he decided to unfollow Katy on Twitter.
