Russell Brand knew he would ‘walk away’ from marriage to Katy Perry


TURNS out the marriage between American pop star Katy Perry and outspoken British comedian Russell Brand was doomed from the start.

Brand admitted to feeling he would ‘have to walk away’ at some point even before they were hitched, back in 2010.


Footage from the documentary Brand: A Second Coming, filmed during the couple’s 14-month marriage, quotes Brand as calling Perry a “plastic pop star”.

He realised they were very different creatures while in Africa in 2010: “The stuff in Africa hit me really hard. I’m associated with the very thing I detest: vapid, vacuous, plastic, constructed, mindless celebrity. ‘Oh, who’s he?’ … ‘He’s married to Katy Perry’.”

“This is my suspicion, that at some point, to be happy, I’m going to have to walk away.”
