Russell Brand Reveals He Wants To Be Friends With Pop Star Ex Katy Perry

Russell Brand has revealed that he would be willing to build a friendship with his ex-wife Katy Perry.

The unlikely couple married in October 2010, but left fans shocked in December 2011 when Russell announced he was divorcing his superstar wife.

However in an interview with Grazia magazine the 42-year-old has revealed he would be up for a reconciliation with the I Kissed A Girl singer.


He said: “I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind. Because if we can’t overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?”

Russell, who has recently tied the knot with 30-year-old Scottish lifestyle blogger Laura Gallacher, added: “It was a very important and lovely time in my life. I don’t regret being married to Katy at all.

“I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman.”

The pair were married for under a year when they announced they were separating.

It was later revealed that love lothario Russell had actually requested the divorce via text message whilst Perry was filming a documentary about her world tour.

The comedian still has a tattoo on his arm that he and Katy both have, it reads “Go with the flow” in Sanskrit

When asked if he is going to keep the inking he said: “Of course I’m going to keep it.”


Perry previously spoke out about her marriage to Vogue magazine and said she hadn’t heard from her ex since he called it quits.

She said: “He’s a very smart man, a magical man and I was in love with him when I married him.

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

She also said that she believes her hectic work schedule played part in the break up but hinted that there were other factors that contributed to it.

“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 teased.

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