Is This The Real Reason Russell Brand Filed For Divorce From Katy Perry?
When Katy Perry and Rusell Brand got together in 2009 it was the "huh?" heard round the world. But as their whirlwind romance developed we quickly came around to the idea that some people are just meant to be. That was of course until Russell unceremoniously dumped Katy via text message in 2011 and despite their divorce papers citing, "irreconcilable differences," we've never really uncovered the reason for the break down of their relationship.
However in a new explosive documentary 'Brand: A Second Coming' we can see that even before their marriage Russell was extremely uncomfortable with her celebrity, labelling her lifestyle as, "vapid, vacuous, plastic, constructed, mindless."
Further adding salt to the wound, in another scene he mocks Katy during a stand-up comedy routine and he even forsees the demise of their relationship.
"This is my suspicion, that at some point, to be happy, I'm going to have to walk away," he tells pal Stephen Merchant.
Well with an attitude like that, no wonder their marriage didn't last.
Understandably, Katy is deeply upset over the extremely personal contents of the documentary and a source has told British Grazia, "It hurts like hell for Katy to re-live her painful marriage like this. She feels vulnerable and embarrassed."
Russell Brand has always been an open book, but using the painful break-down of his marriage for public fodder seems ironic considering he branded his former wife as being, "vapid" and "constructed." Purposeful exposure of a celebrity relationship's entrails is a very good example of the "mindless" acts that he claims to detest so much.
We hope that Katy can get closure from this and move on knowing that she is a much better person for it.
