Russell Brand Blames Distance & Him Wanting Kids For Divorce (VIDEO)


In an interview with Howard Stern, Russell Brand said he still loves Katy Perry but they split for “practical reasons.”

Brand, who got engaged after only two months of dating and married soon after, said it seemed the sensible thing to do to marry her.

He said, “I loved her so much, [getting married] just seemed like the sensible thing to do.”

“I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other … it mostly didn’t work for practical reasons,” he admitted, saying Katy’s busy work schedule was a factor in the split. “She’s young, successful and dedicated. You can’t fully understand [marriage] until you do it.”

Russell also wanted to have a family, stating, “I was really into the idea of marriage and having children.”

Stern pressed for more details, but Brand wanted to keep some things private.

The 37-year-old actor felt maybe the age difference could have been a factor, stating, “She’s younger than me. She’s a young woman.”
