Katy Perry and Russell Brand first started dating back in 2009, and got married the next year. The couple seemed to be head in the clouds in love. But like most whirlwind relationships in Hollywood this one ended up in divorce. After less than 2 years of marriage Brand apparently filed for divorced just before New Years’ Eve after the couple had a big fight and enjoyed the holiday thousand’s of miles away from each other. Brand enjoying England with his family, and Perry in Hawaii with her friends.
Unsurprisingly Perry was very hurt and in some circles felt blindsided by the divorce. In several interviews she explained that while she contemplated suicide, she never carried out any attempts on her own life. But the emotional scars still stands today. Greg Wells said:
“I think she felt so kicked in the head and so publicly embarrassed at being divorced by a text message, she was at a huge low and was thinking about not leaving the bathroom forever.”
After their divorce according to the Daily mirror; Russell Brand felt the wraith of a woman scorned after a good luck tweet during SuperBowl XLIX (49) New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks in Glendale Arizona. Perry was not amused or happy at remark or of the man who broke her heart. Here is the what the tweet from a snapshot of the internet:
‘ Super Bowl may be baffling to Brits but half time show will be amazing. Good Luck KP’
She still misses him as noted in her documentary “Katy Perry: Part of Me”, but most of all the divorce was not pretty due to the fact that Brand ended the marriage by text.
The two left each other citing irreconcilable differences as their reason of divorce. The couple did not sign a per-nupital agreement before getting married. Unfortunately for Perry since become a super phenom during their marriage and was then estimated worth $44million to Brands’ estimated net worth of $15 million; Perry would have had to split her net worth 50/50 with Brand. Brand declined the money during the divorce.
Perry and Brand loved, fought and ultimately left each other. Sometimes you can love someone that is not the best person for or you for them. But that doesn’t mean you did not love them, and want more than anything in the world the best for them. It also doesn’t mean that you wont hurt them; it just means that person wasn’t the “one” and you were just better off friends.
