After the dust has settled on Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s ill-fated marriage there are some pointers emerging from the wreckage which indicate that Perry was the real problem at the heart of it all.
According to a close friend of the pair she had become the antithesis of Brand; a man who was publicly battling drug and sex addictions and wanting to make a better life for himself, while she had joined a ‘wild’ crowd who loved to generically snort the old Peruvian marching powder until sunrise and then some.
Hardly wild really when compared to the drug antics of other rock stars who managed to go several days without sleep or food, shagged masses of girls, drive cars into swimming pools and still came out the other side to write some of the greatest records ever to be published.
According the the source, Russell became disillusioned with Katy’s behaviour and called for a swift end to the marriage.
“How is Russell supposed to feel when he hears that his wife is out till all hours of the night?”
“He can only assume the worst.”
Brand’s addiction issues have been well documented and the source went on to say, “Russell was a truly horrible addict. It’s a day-by-day struggle for him to stay sober and walk the right path now.”
“He’s really turned his life around, and he couldn’t let it be destroyed.”
“She went from this sweet, adorable woman that he was madly in love with to a needy person who surrounded herself with hangers-on who were using her.”
“She’d throw back tequila shots, chain smoke… and have mood swings. He gave her an ultimatum: ‘Get rid of your hard-partying friends or lose me forever!’”
Clearly the choice was made and Katy is now in what appears to be a similarly destructive relationship while Russell has really cleaned himself up.
