Katy Perry: Russell Brand Told Me He Was Divorcing Me By Text

July 11, 2013

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.”
