RUSSELL Brand has revealed Katy Perry was a pain in the ass during their short-lived marriage.
The British comedian — who recently finalized his divorce from the singer — shocked a live audience during the filming of his American show by saying Perry gave him “ass-ache”.
The 37-year-old star was at Solar Studios in Los Angeles on Sunday filming this week’s installment of his chat show BrandX for network FX.
While he refused to go into depth about his legal union to the 27-year-old singer after they announced their split in December, he had now admitted that she was irritating.
“Russell was bantering with the audience, in particular a couple called Curtis and Katy,” a source said.
“He got onto the subject of their sex life. Katy was giving as good as she got.
“Then, all of a sudden Russell shouted: ‘Anyway, enough of you. I’ve had enough ass-ache from people called Katy in the last year.’
“It was obvious he meant Katy Perry. The whole room gasped. I think it took a couple of seconds for what he’d said to sink in.
“He then laughed and shouted: ‘Oh no, there might be a journalist in the room.’ He shrugged his shoulders and murmured: ‘Oh well,’ before moving onto his next subject.”
Katy recently blamed Russell for the breakdown of their marriage, as he didn’t come and see during her enough while she was on her California Dreams Tour.
When asked if Russell’s absence was the catalyst for the break-up, Katy replied, “Yes, if I could edit it any other way I would but that is exactly what it was.
“I always had plans to make this record (‘Teenage Dream’) and usually with a record, you tour.
“Touring is always important to me. It’s like a big IOU to my fans, because I know they are the reason I exist.”
