Katy Perry seemingly hinted at Russell Brand’s secrets years before sexual abuse claims came to light. In a 2013 interview with Vogue, which has resurfaced amid the ongoing allegations against Brand, the “Firework” singer spoke about her “controlling” ex-husband and their “really hurtful” marriage.
Perry, 38, told the outlet she was “in love” with Brand, 48, when she married him in India on Oct. 23, 2010. However, the two divorced just 14 months later after she received a breakup text from him on New Year’s Eve in 2011.
She admitted that she initially blamed herself for the split – until she “found out the real truth” about the comedian.
Perry said at the time:
“At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, ‘I can’t handle the equalness.’ 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… I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like, ‘This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me.’ So I have moved on from that.”
Katy Perry alluded to misogyny and emotional abuse during her marriage to Russell Brand in a 2013 Vogue Article.
