The Katy Perry-Russell Brand Saga

Russell Brand and Katy perryKaty Perry (Kath­eryn Eliz­a­beth Hud­son) and Rus­sell Brand( (Rus­sell Edward Brand) have been quite the cou­ple. They first met in 2008 at VMA awards where she per­formed her hit sin­gle ‘I Kissed a girl’. As things were dif­fer­ent then, she wasn’t sin­gle at the time as she was dat­ing Gym Class Heroes front­man Travie McCoy. A year later Katy and Travie broke up.

Rus­sell was back as a sec­ond time host on the VMA stage where he and Katy flirted through rehearsals. They were hot news instantly and three weeks later they made their cou­ple debut at a Fendi party at Paris Fash­ion Week.

Soon the cou­ple was mak­ing news all around the world. They took a long extended vaca­tion to Rajasthan, India for New Years, where Rus­sell pro­posed to Katy (oh so roman­tic) and she said YES!

On 23 Octo­ber, 2010 Katy Perry and Rus­sell Brand were mar­ried in a reli­gious Hindu cer­e­mony by a Chris­t­ian min­is­ter and long time fam­ily friend at the Amin-i-khas near the Tiger Sanc­tu­ary where he had pro­posed to her.They were thrilled to announce that they are now Mrs and Mr. Brand.

Katy Perry-Russell Brand Divorce

The cou­ple spent a happy but brief mar­riage for about a year, before their down­fall. Erratic work sched­ules, break up and baby rumours, the paparazzi had made way through the cou­ples love story.

By Decem­ber 2011, Katy and Rus­sell were spot­ted in Hawaii and Lon­don respec­tively with­out their wed­ding bands.

On 30 Decem­ber, 2011 he “texted” her that their mar­riage was over and had filed for divorce. The divorce was effec­tive on 16 July, 2012. He rea­soned the divorce say­ing that they had “irrec­on­cil­able differences”.

Katy went through a hard time recov­er­ing from the Divorce. She even con­sid­ered tak­ing her own life. She drank her way to obliv­ion at first, but bounced back with a chart top­ping album.

She was born and brought up in a Pen­te­costal fam­ily and was never allowed to lis­ten to sec­u­lar music. She got enlight­ened about sec­u­lar music by sneak­ing in music cd’s from her friends. She has come a long way in her music career and despite her divorce she rose even higher.

She was spot­ted with well known musi­cian John Mayer, but never con­firmed if they were a couple.

Rus­sell is an Eng­lish come­dian, actor, radio host, activist and author. He has mostly been in news for his behav­iour, drug use, alco­holism and promiscuity.

He has been to var­i­ous Art schools, but was sus­pended because of ille­gal drug use and poor attendance.

He then dated Jemima Khan, an edi­tor of the New States­man, from 2013–2014. By Novem­ber 2013 news spec­u­lated that he had cheated on Khan. Sep­tem­ber 2014 soon saw the end of their relationship.

Katy and Rus­sell have grown tremen­dously in their respec­tive fields irre­spec­tive of their ups and downs. He is known for his drug abuse and mis­be­hav­iour, while she rose to new heights in her career.

Rus­sell claims to love Katy very, very much and never wishes for any­thing to hurt her. Their love story was short lived, heated in the moment and cold as ice soon after.
