Nearly five years after his much-publicized divorce from Katy Perry, Russell Brand is looking back on the high-profile relationship fondly.
“I still feel very warm towards her,” the comedian said while sitting down for an interview on “John Bishop: In Conversation With”. “I feel like, when I hear about her or see her, ‘Awe, there’s that person. There’s that person in the world.’”
In 2010, after a year-long whirlwind romance, the couple tied the knot during a multi-day celebration in India. Unfortunately, their union would soon fall to pieces with Brand reportedly asking Perry for a divorce via text message. The demise of Perry and Brand’s marriage was the subject of the singer’s 2012 documentary “Part of Me”.
Brand went on to reference their busy schedules as a factor in their divorce. “The marriage didn’t last for a very long time and I think that is to do with the undulated nature of fame and that, living in those conditions and what was happening,” Brand added.
