Katy, 28, covers the July issue of Vogue magazine during which she finally sheds light on her 14-month-marriage to Russell, 38. First Katy admits Russell was the one who wanted a divorce – but the shocker is the way he went about asking for it!
“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” reveals Katy. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”
Wowzers. Via a text message? Yikes. That’s pretty cold. Katy continues that before receiving the awful text, there were some cracks in her marriage and Russell’s sense of humor was starting to rub her the wrong way.
“[He's] hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows,” she tells Vogue. “I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie [Katy Perry: Part of Me]. That wasn’t edited to leave footage out—there wasn’t any footage of him.”
Another issue was that the comic/actor was “controlling” and had a hard time with her being his “equal.”
“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,” says Katy. “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.”
The good news or bad news depending on how you look at it is that Katy truly believes she has found love again with current on-again, off-again boyfriend / professional douchebag John Mayer. She insists her romance with John was not a rebound.
“No, not at all. No, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,” she said of John. “All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind.”
“Beautiful mind, tortured soul,” she continued. “I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.” Yes you do Katy. Yes you do.
