The comedian has opened up on his relationship with the American popstrel, slamming rumours they’ve been seeking marriage counselling
Russell Brand has revealed all on his relationship with Katy Perry in a no-holds barred interview with Piers Morgan, speaking of the difficulties of married life, but slamming rumours they have been seeking couples therapy.
The 35-year-old recovered sex and drug addict joked about his past life before settling down, saying: ‘I can’t believe I used to have sex 20 times a week, especially now I’m married. But now I’m a bloody good gardener’
The newly-wed rogue was happy to discuss his relationship with pop star wife Katy Perry for the ITV Life Stories show – set to be broadcast next month – as well as the difficulties of adjusting to married life.
‘It’s difficult getting used to one person and being in the same house every day,’ he revealed on the show. ‘See, if she leaves stuff lying around I have to deal with it. And if I leave stuff on the floor I have to pick it up. That confuses me.
‘And she takes ages to get ready. It’s unbelievable. I had no idea what went on, I was never normally around for that bit.’
Russ also rubbished claims that the couple have been seeking marriage counseling, after running into relationship trouble earlier this year.
‘It’s not true we see a marriage counsellor,’ he said. ‘I don’t know where that story came from. We don’t pay any attention.’
Speaking of his desire to have children, he revealed: ‘Yeah children, that’d be good, wouldn’t it?’ but conceded he may not be the best role model based on his own past actions.
‘I’m aware I have no recourse if they misbehave,’ he joked. ‘Expelled from school for drugs? Well done, you’re on target.’
When quizzed on the difficulties staying faithful, the onetime lothario was typically honest.
‘I take it one step at a time – like with drugs, like with alcohol. Don’t look at things as in ‘rest of life’. Of course marriage is for life and that’s what I wanted but anything for the rest of life can be daunting.’
