Katy Perry and comedian Russel Brand used to be quite the item while they were married. The couple split up in 2012, however, and details about the divorce are still coming out.
In an interview with Vogue, Perry said that Brand asked for a divorce via a text message:
"I was in love with him when I married him, [but] let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,"
If that sounds rough, it was for the pop star. Perry said that she initially shouldered some of the blame for the divorce, but she later came to the realization that it wasn't because of her. Her reasoning was that the divorce was beyond her and that she needed to put it behind her.
Interestingly enough, Perry says that she only stopped blaming herself after she found out the real truth behind the divorce. She won't disclose what that truth is, however, as she is opting instead to save it for a "rainy day."
The rest of the Vogue interview is a fascinating look into her short fling with John Mayer, her parents, her education and what she wants out of life. Katy Perry fans will definitely want to give it a read. As for everybody else, you might just learn something about that pop star that caused one of the only few controversies on Sesame Street.
