Are Russell Brand & Katy Perry planning a vacation to save their marriage?


By now, you know the drill with Katy Perry and Russell Brand. The two have been married just over a year now, and their entire relationship has consisted of stolen weekends here and there as well as continual denials of a split and constant damage control on the part of their publicists. So of course, Katy and Russell spent 11/6 attending separate events on different continents. Katy attended the MTV Europe Music Awards 2011 (EMAs) in Belfast while Russell attended a Yahoo! Sports event in Los Angeles. At least he wore his wedding ring, unlike on their wedding anniversary, which he spent alone in NYC:


For appearance’s sake, both of them are still playing nice with the in-laws though. Much like Katy spent time last month with Russell’s mother, Russell’s own date to last week’s Friendly House gala lunchion (which honored him as “Man of the Year”) was Katy’s father, Keith Hudson:


Meanwhile, Katy was photographed on 11/4 flashing her panties (from underneath a very unflattering ensemble) in Scotland:


Still, it’s rather obvious that the couple is having problems at least from a “spending time together” standpoint. While their recent (un)romantic bike ride in NYC was part of a weekend refresher for the couple, it’s not very realistic to expect a marriage to hold together based upon a few days here and there. So allegedly, Katy and Russell are taking their marriage back to where it began; that is, the couple is heading back to India, where they became both engaged and married:


They’ve hardly been seen together in recent months, kept apart by busy work schedules, leading to speculation about the state of their marriage.

But Russell Brand and Katy Perry are reportedly planning a romantic trip back to where they tied the knot in a bid to spice up their relationship. The couple are said to be returning to India, where they got married in October last year.

According to a report in the Sunday Mirror comedy actor Russell has booked a holiday to the Aman New Dehli Hotel in the New Year to get their marriage back on track. The newspaper claims that Brand has booked a two-week stay in a pool-suite at the five-star hotel.

They have spent months apart due to their relentless work schedules. Russell has been working on back-to-back film projects since the summer while Katy has been traveling around the globe on her California Dreams tour.

Things have reportedly become so strained that friends have started to fear the worst for their relationship.

A source close to Katy revealed to the Sunday Mirror: “As part of Katy’s birthday present last week Russell booked a trip to the Aman resort in New Delhi for New Year. Katy’s schedule is jam-packed right until the end of the year. They plan to spend Christmas in Britain with Russell’s mum and then fly to India on holiday. Russell and Katy have both agreed that the time they spend apart has been extremely tough and that they need to spend some quality time away together so that they can re-connect as a couple.”

Last week they were spotted ­riding their bikes near their £1.68million pad in TriBeCa, New York – Katy’s 27th birthday providing an excuse for her to take a break from touring to spend time with her husband.

It’s said that the weekend in New York inspired the couple’s trip away to India, making them realise how distant they’d become.

The luxurious Aman New Delhi is described on its website as “a contemporary oasis of sophisticated calm providing extensive recreation, meeting and leisure facilities.”

A two-room pool suite costs just over £1,000-per-night, and other facilities at the hotel include three tennis courts, three squash courts, a pilates studio and a gym. The on-site spa offers a multitude of treatments, and there’s a golf course to the north of the plush hotel.

Uh-oh. Who really knows whether this story is true, but if it is, then this really could be make or break time for the marriage. How on earth will they actually spend extended time together when they clearly have been living very separate lives during the entirety of their marriage? After a few days of “togetherness,” maybe Katy will even grow so bored out of her skull that she’ll get wasted again while Russell shakes his head at the silly girl he has married. If this trip really happens, then we may very well expect a divorce announcement shortly thereafter. This cannot possibly turn out well.

    Russel always says how it was “love at first sight” when seeing her. I guess if you barely see each other during your relationship, I can believe that they think it is because they have a strong bond that holds their marriage together while in “fact” it is just because they don’t see each other long enough to overcome true difficulties and obstacles. How many people struggle when shacking up together for the first serious time? Plus they’re celebs, that makes is even more hard because the whole world is watching their every step. I wonder what their relationship would be like if they both spend a lot of time together…silly partygirl + reformed womanizer/drunky, mismatch imo.
    No way that somebody like Russel who had daily vag is the perfect monogamous husband now. I don’t think Katy is his Annette Bening.

    Sidenote: that first picture makes my eyes hurt.

  2. carrie says:

    Yes,they need to spend time together and to live together

  3. Russel says:

    You know that is over. They stopped to dye their hair for the same color. BTW Katy darling Xtina wants to her cartoon eyebrows back.

  4. Jayna says:

    Good Lord, maybe they are getting away together because she’s been on the road touring and is tired and they are taking a vacation together. Grueling work schedules are hard on any couple celeb or not celeb, but the schedule eventually lets up.. Congrats, Katy, you’ve been rockin’ this tour.

  5. Blankverse says:

    Oh my gosh! I forgot how pretty she could be when I saw those pics of her with almost natural dark hair and no kabuki makeup.

    They also seem to be on some weird opposing time/ space continuum whereby he seems to be getting older/wiser, while she’s just regressing into early teens and looking less mature each day. I’m waiting for Dr Who to come and save the day. If he doesn’t then this marriage is toast.

    Agree with NM9005 – that first pic should be viewed with shades or you’ll lose your retina.

  6. gee says:

    She looks stunning in that last pic.

    I don’t get how you can be married and live so seperately early on. It’s not like he’s a soldier or something.. they have the option to be together. Why bother being married?

  7. G says:

    I’m rooting for these two. I’ve never really heard a bad thing about either (since he cleaned up) and I’ve never heard either of them say anything bad about anybody else. Once she’s done touring, i predict things settle down.

  8. fabgrrl says:

    I don’t really care for these two, but wow, I feel badly for them. Imagine having every little detail of your marriage picked apart like this. don’t get me wrong, I looove celebrity gossip (why else would I be here?), but it seems like this pair is under the microscope non-stop. I know of very few relationships that can survive that much scrutiny, especially a new marriage like this one.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Marry in haste – regret in leisure.
    An old saying but true. Always wait to marry – rushs to the alter almost never work. I’m a divorce lawyer. I know what I’m talking about.

  10. Dudette says:

    @carrie – completely agree. Unlike ordinary folk who sometimes don’t have a choice but to live apart, they have the means and ability to live together and the fact they really aren’t speaks volumes.

  11. kiki says:

    Not really a fan of hers, but love RB. Still, I’m also rooting for them against all odds.

    It doesn’t look good though. I’ll never understand long distance relationships — absence does *not* make the heart grow fonder to me at all. And these 2, no matter how much love it was at first sight really haven’t known each other that long to have a bond that overcomes distance & time apart.

    We’ll see about this trip to India: 1) if it’s true – can’t trust Daily Mail, and 2) if true will it hold the marriage together?

  12. Shelly says:

    I can’t stand either of these two. They are both beyond annoying and deserve each other.

  13. Lantana says:

    I think unless they get on the same page about drinking/drugging they’ll split. And if they both decide to go the party route, they’ll split anyway, it will just take longer (and we’d all blame her for sabotaging RB even though in reality it is his choice).

  14. Jover says:

    I agree shelly go on that vacation and never come back she’s a talentless airhead and he’s never gonna happen here in the states no matter how hard his pr team tries; when you try to act so cool, you’re not; hell, benny hill’s funnier than he is and I despise his attempts to play some faux rock star type when he’s the farthiest thing from it – Robert Plant back in the day, yes, but no way with RB. Just doesn’t have it.

  15. Day says:

    UGH. She should never have even married. Katy will more than likely never see this type of success with any other album. So, instead of tying herself down w/one dude, she should have been off enjoying the fame while it lasted. If you are still in the party mode(which she is), you have no business trying to settle down. And, he is just gross.

  16. Ming says:

    Since the authors of this site mostly follow the headlines of other gossip blogs and rarely do their own thinking (although this makes no difference: Jon Hamm/Jenn Westfeldt are totally over !!!!111, Robsten is totally overrrr !!!!111), I would not worry about Katy and Russell.

  17. ShanKat says:

    I love them, separately and individually. I wonder if Russy is pouty over Arthur flopping. If it had hit, he might have been huge this year.

    Katy is a hit. She held it down this year. I almost always love her hair and makeup.

  18. lisa says:

    This happens all the time. Couples get married and then one or both goes off to do their own thing. At some point you have to be a married couple. By the time they realize it it’s too late. I think of Ryan and Scarlett and so many other. Married but living separate. And then couples that are together almost all the time are on rags each week with the Break up because they are not seen together for a day or two.

    I get long distance.. but these people need to either put the marriage FIRST and cut back on the career or stay single.

  19. The Original Mia says:

    Wow. I, too, forgot how pretty she could be without the pink hair and garish makeup.

    I don’t understand why they got married when they did. They could have waited until their schedules cleared and they could spend time together as a married couple. I think all this time apart and the fact she still drinks are indicators that maybe they did rush into this.

  20. Gina says:

    In her mind you know she thinks she’s Gwen Stefani, but all I see is a girl ready to lead a sing-a-long of ‘Beauty School Dropout’. Why does she think this looks cute?

    I would just like to reiterate how disappointing Russell Brand is. There were like 5 minutes in 2009 when I thought he might turn out to have some substance to him. He fooled me. He looks so miserable most of the time, but at least he’s not emaciated anymore. When they first hooked up I thought she was literally sucking the life out of him and not in a good way. Heard she can’t work with Dr. Luke again. Anyone think she’ll ever have another hit single after TD, not that she would care?

  21. Abby says:

    I like them together. I hope all the strained marriage and break up rumors are false.

  22. Kim says:

    The busy careers excuse is a cop out. If they loved & wanted to be with each other more they could & would.

  23. Liza says:

    These 2 again. Why is this story being leaked to the press? DRAMA FOR her 6th single ya’ll, which when it goes to number one is the day the music died. Whatever, if I were her I’d get right back in that studio and make another moneymaker. India alone locked in a room with Brand for two weeks? Yeah Katy, sounds great. Glad I’m not you. If I were, I’d find better things to do with my time in the sun.

  24. Bull says:

    People need to stop making these two happen. Let them be miserable or happy together in their creepy marriage of convenience. Who gives a crap? If we all just ignore them maybe they’ll just quietly go away. How does Brand not have AIDS and Hep C from all the alleyway and bathroom f*cks he’s had? He should be studied by science.

  25. Keily says:

    I don’t get how these rumors circulate constantly. She’s done with her tour in a week and she’s obviously at least 4 months pregnant. They’ve got lots of money. She’s also obviously accepted and happy with the idea of an open marriage as long as he keeps it under wraps. She has no talent and is an unappealing and ignorant person. They’re a team. People keep inexplicably employing Brand even though he’s a disgusting manic creep. What could they possibly have to fight about?

  26. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site. Reading this information So i am satisfied to express that I’ve an incredibly just right uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I so much surely will make certain to don?t omit this web site and give it a glance regularly.

    Valuable info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site accidentally, and I am surprised why this coincidence did not took place earlier! I bookmarked it.
