Now that Russell Brand and Katy Perry are officially getting a divorce, “friends” of the couple are coming out of the woodwork and have juicy stories to share with the tabloids.
Like how Russell hurt Katy’s feeling when he told her that her recent hosting stint on Saturday Night Live “wasn’t that funny.” (Ouch!)
And not only that, but he also quickly turned down a request from Katy to appear with her on the show and didn’t even fly to New York to watch her.
“There were so many times when he wasn’t there,” an insider says of Brand, 36, who blindsided Perry, 27, by filing for divorce Dec. 30 without consulting her.
Weeks before, when the “Firework” singer guest-hosted Saturday Night Live, the British comic turned down Perry’s plea to perform in a skit with him, remaining in L.A. instead. And after Perry had pulled off her SNL stint?
And when the Arthur star did show up to support his wife, as he did at Perry’s final concert stop in November, “He was totally uninterested and seemed annoyed he was there,” says a witness. “I don’t think he sat through one song.”
Honestly we wouldn’t be able to sit through a full Katy Perry concert either … but then again, we aren’t married to her.
You couldn’t even sit through one song Russell? Damn.
