Russell Brand has opened up about his ex-wife Katy Perry, and her relationship with her new boyfriend John Mayer. While Brand was a guest on the Howard Stern show, Stern asked about his thoughts on Perry’s new boyfriend. Brand replied, “Worse or better, depending on how you view it.” Definitely true, considering that both Brand and Mayer have reputations as womanizers, and Perry has been in long-term relationships with both of them.
Brand continued to open up about Perry’s relationship with Mayer, adding, “You have to let go of the instinct to protect someone once you divorce them.” A classy statement, and it proves that Russell Brand can be mature when it’s required. He even withheld details about his own relationship to Perry, saying, “So help me, Howard Stern, I will not compromise my ex-wife's va**** for the sake of ratings! That woman was perfect from top to bottom!"
He also spoke about the state of his own love life, saying, “I'm not dating anybody. Actually, I'd like a romance. Not so much playing the field, just going through life, meditating, doing yoga, concentrating on this TV show and trying to find a nice wife."
Brand and Perry reportedly had a reasonably amicable divorce, which is further exemplified by the fact they are staying civil and not saying horrible things about each other to the press. Now, with rumors abounding that Mayer is about to propose to Perry, one has to wonder how Brand is moving on, considering that his ex-wife has gotten into a serious relationship with another so-called womanizer so quickly after their divorce.
