Russell Brand: “Divorce with Katy Perry caused by ‘incompatibility’”
British comedian Russell Brand gave his thoughtful insight on why he thinks his short-lived marriage with pop star Katy Perry failed during an interview on Australia’s “60 Minutes.”
According to reports, 37-year-old Russell Brand — who split from Katy Perry last December after just 14 months of marriage, said in the interview: “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.”
The English actor added that while opposites may attract, it doesn’t mean their relationship will be sustainable in the long run.
Russell Brand noted, “I think if you’re someone who’s really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone who’s into mountain biking, and if you’re really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who’s into Eastern mysticism.”
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor then concluded, “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.”
Brand is noted in the British media due to his eccentricity and for controversies, such as his dismissal from MTV after he dressed as Osama bin Laden, his behaviour as presenter of various award ceremonies and his former drug use.
