Russell Brand Divorced Katy Perry Because She Didn’t Want Kids Yet
Katy Perry opened up to Marie Claire magazine about her divorce from Russell Brand. Katy revealed that the reason Russell ended the marriage is that Katy didn’t want to have kids yet.
I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit [Russell] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready – I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love’.
Russell told Katy their marriage was over via text message on New Year’s Eve in 2011. Katy has since moved on with fellow singer John Mayer, and it’s rumored that the pair might be getting engaged soon!
