Katy Perry opens up about her marriage to Russell Brand, who she says told her he was divorcing her after just 14 months – via text message! Ouch!

Perry, 28, describes Brand, 38, as “a magical man” when they met four years ago, which culminated in a lavish Indian wedding in October 2010.

“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry tells the July issue of US Vogue in her first cover for the magazine.

“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”

And she’s not holding back on the reasons he quit the marriage.

“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 says.

Perry has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with John Mayer since 2012.

“I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,” says Perry.

“All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
