Pop sensation Katy Perry has revealed that ex-husband Russell Brand dumped her by text message. Perry made the allegations during an interview recently with US Vogue in which she also hinted that the “real truth” behind the couples’ split is yet to be revealed. The couple, who met, became engaged and married all within a year, ended their marriage after 14 months in December 2011. At the time the cause for divorce was cited as “irreconcilable differences” and during Perry’s autobiographical movie it was revealed that a disagreement over starting a family led to the end of her marriage.
During the Vogue interview, Perry said, “He’s a very smart man, a magical man and I was in love with him when I married him.” She told how the comic used to make fun of her not knowing she was in the audience after surprising him at one of his shows. She added, “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31st, 2011.” The pair who had hectic schedules during their marriage found it increasingly difficult to make things work in their marriage as the months went on. Perry said, “I do admit I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting.”
She went on to say she felt the responsibility for the marriage ending until she found out the real truth, which she is keeping “locked in my safe for a rainy day”. She also confirmed despite numerous rumours, that her relationship with singer John Mayer is over even though she is still “madly in love with him”.
