Katy Perry: 'Russell Dumped Me By Text Message'
Singer reveals how Brand broke the news to her that he wanted a divorce...
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 16:12
The couple - who were married for just 14-months - parted ways in December 2011, with K-Pez now telling US Vogue that Russ called off their marriage in a message.
Perry 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."
Katy - who has recently been linked to Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson - went on to accept that her hectic touring schedule was part to blame for the split, but she did hint that there could be more to their break-up than meets the eye.
The Teenage Dream hitmaker explained: “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.
“I let go and I was like, 'This isn't because of me; this is beyond me.' So I have moved on from that."
Earlier this month, Brand himself addressed their divorce, blaming fame and commitment issues for the end of their marriage.
