Russell Brand‘s two-year marriage with Katy Perry ended in 2012 with both of them visibly distraught over the divorce. Since then, Russell has discussed his marriage with Katy in interviews and while on tour.
Russell has said very few negative comments about Katy with most of his comments stating that he didn’t want the divorce any more than Katy did.
He said the primary reason they split was Katy didn’t want kids and because their careers were getting in the way of their relationship.

Katy has made it very clear that she did in fact want kids, and said the real reason Russel wanted a divorce is because his vision for marriage didn’t include her being more in charge.
From what I’ve read, they didn’t really get to know each other very well before getting married.
They didn’t talk about the important stuff before getting married. Like, whether Perry wanted kids, or who was going to be the predominant decision maker for their family.

Rusell has come out on social media talking about his heartbreak over not being with Katy, and has explained on interviews, was very much in love with her.
I’ve heard this story before. It is easily one of the most common stories covered in celebrity news. A studded superstar falls for a glamorous model or artist, and decide they want to get married.
Unfortunately, the pressures of Hollywood have a big effect on relationships.
Have you seen Katy’s videos with her crying after Russell sent an sms message wanting a divorce moments before she’s supposed to perform? Russell was really sad to see this.
Apparently, fans have been big supporters of Russell and appreciate his transparency when talking about what his marriage meant to him.
As he has gone on tour, he has become more than a comedian, discussing his spiritual growth, and details the journey of personal development. Fans have discovered that there is a lot more to Brand than they first thought.
He regularly posts on social media detailing his upcoming stops and giving shout outs to fans about how much he appreciates them.
With Katy’s pregnancy announced, the news has been filled with rumors and recaps of the two star’s relationship drama.
I find it interesting that Russell had the option to settle for 50% of the estimated 44 million that Katy had made during their relationship, yet took none of it.
I think that really speaks a lot about how much Russell cared for her and despite his heartbreak over losing the love of his life, he wishes her well and wishes they couldn’t have worked things out.
