American singer Katy Perry and British funnyman Russell Brandwere married back in October of 2010, before announcing at the end of 2011 that they were going to divorce. Katy has now opened up about her split from Russell, admitting that she was very low and spent weeks in bed.
Kat Perry and Russell Brand at happier times
Perry was chatting to The Sunday Times, when she explained, "I'm not the kind of person who is always like, 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. I was in bed for about two weeks. I was pretty f**ked, yes. It hurt a lot. I got a good knock. Unfortunately, although I had the outward self-identity I didn't have the inner kind, I hadn't built that up."
She added, "My self-worth was in someone else's hands which is never a good idea, because it can be taken from you at any time. And it was, and it was shattered."
The couple split in 2011
Katy Perry recently released her new album Prism, which she says sought a lot of inspiration from her split from Russell Brand, as she felt the need to show fans just how low she was feeling at that time. You can listen to the Katy Perry single Unconditionally below, which is taken from the new album.
