During an interview on Australia's 60 Minutes, the Rock Of Ages actor claimed that getting hitched after a year of dating proved they were not right for each other.
Brand - who recently enjoyed a whirlwind romance with Geri Halliwell - explained: "Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it don't. But if you sort of sense there's an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways.
"I think if you're someone who's really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone else who's into mountain biking, and if you're really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who into Eastern mysticism."
He added: "I think if you're a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble. I've been in a lot of trouble."
