Russell Brand has opened up about the end of his 14-month marriage for the first time
He may have filed for divorce and had numerous flings with other women since then but Russell Brand has insisted that he still loves Katy Perry.
During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 36-year-old had nothing but praise for his estranged pop star wife, even going so far as to say that he still loved Katy Perry.
Reflecting on the end of his 14-month marriage, Brand said: ‘I still love her as a human being.
‘But, sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything.
‘I was very happy to be married with her,’ Brand continued. ‘She’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.’
The comedian, who decided to unfollow his ex on Twitter late last week, didn’t give any solid reasons as to why the pair ended their marriage so soon.
About the split, he said: ‘You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes thing are just different and then you to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation.’
He concluded that the 27-year-old singer is still ‘a person I still consider to be beautiful… I have nothing but positivity for her.’
Perry has since started dating Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd and Brand has been spotted with a number of beautiful women since he filed for divorce in December 2011.
