Katy 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.
