Russell Brand hated Katy Perry’s cocaine lifestyle, he’s shagging other chicks

Mark my words — the speculation over the demise of Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s marriage will last longer than the 14-month marriage itself. We’ve already heard many theories about the divorce, which range from Katy’s refusal to start a family to Russell’s overwhelming demand for wheelchair pr0n, and it’s all a bit exhausting. If only half of the stories that’ve come out are true, well, it’s rather unbelievable that Katy and Russell ever got married in the first place. This week, we’ve got a story from Star that claims to have “the real reason” for the split, which relies heavily upon the Hawaiian beach vacation that ruined Christmas. Star alleges that when Russell found out what occurred in Hawaii, he was finished with Katy for good:

Russell Brand may be the recovering addict, but it’s Katy Perry’s exposure to hard drugs and all-night partying that doomed their marriage. Amid reports of cheating, fighting and a fading romance, Star has discovered the shocking reason that [the couple] split a little more than a year after their wedding in India.

Russell, a recovering drug addict, “hit the roof,” says a source, when he found out exactly what was going on in Hawaii. “Katy runs with a really wild crowd,” an insider tells Star. Some of her acquaintances love to do cocaine. “They will party all night till the sun comes up, doing line after line of coke.”

According to pals, Russell felt he had no choice but to instruct his lawyers to put a swift end to the marriage. “How is Russell supposed to feel when he hears that his wife is out till all hours of the night,” says the insider. “He can only assume the worst.” And even though the singer wasn’t doing drugs herself, the source feels it showed really bad judgment. “Ruseell was a truly horrible addict. It’s a day-by-day struggle for him to stay sober and walk the right path now,” says the insider. “He’s really turned his life around, and he couldn’t let it be destroyed.”

Katy apepars to have had a long and complicated history with drugs. Although her parents [are] strict evangelical Christians, she revealed in 2009 that even they weren’t always on the straight and narrow. In fact her mom was, in Katy’s words, a “wild child rock ‘n’ roller, pot-smoking debutante,” and her dad was an “acid dealer with long hair.”

There’s no doubt that Katy was exposed to it all, even then. Her Gym Class Heroes singer ex, Travie McCoy, acknowledged his own addiciton and blogged about being in rehab. And a source claims he was a really bad influence on her. “Katy was really struggling when she was with him.” But “she promised her dad she would stay clean.”

Accordng to another insider, Russell saw changes in his wife over the past year. “She went from this sweet, adorable woman that he was madly in love with” to a needy person who surrounded herself with hangers-on who were using her, says an insider. And her behavior was getting increasingly erratic. “She’d throw back tequila shots, chain smoke… and have mood swings. He gave her an ultimatum: ‘Get rid of your hard-partying friends or lose me forever!’” It looks as if Katy made her choice.

Out of all of the tales thus far, this one speaks loudest about what we already knew was a problem in the marriage. That is, Katy really didn’t see the big deal in bragging about being wasted while her husband struggles daily with sobriety. It really speaks to her insensitivity and immaturity, and it sounds like Russell needed to get away for his own good.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly has a new story about Russell’s new single life in L.A., which is turning out to be quite the opposite of his “Lonely in London” routine. Apparently, Russell is already scoring all of the fly tail, but Us wants us to also believe that he’s spilling everything about his marriage to these random chicks:

Less than one month after filing to divorce wife of 14 months Katy Perry, Russell Brand has moved on.

The latest issue of Us Weekly (out Friday) has new details about the Brit comic’s bevy of new beauties, who have incensed his soon-to-be ex-wife Perry, 27.

“She discovered through her friends,” an insider tells Us of how Perry found out about 36-year-old Brand’s wandering eye. “One of the women told a friend of hers and it got back to Katy.”

And the Rock of Ages actor’s new ladies aren’t the only ones doing the talking. Brand — who blindsided Perry by filing for divorce December 30 — has been trashing her to his conquests.

“He’s spoken terribly about Katy to them,” the source says of Brand, who has sought out one particular woman to “explore a relationship” with. “[Russell] told her he wanted her to move in with him after the divorce is final,” confirmed the insider.

[From Us Weekly]

I don’t believe for a moment that Russell is already asking some chick to move in with him when the divorce finally goes through. Naturally, he’s probably shagging like crazy, and maybe he’s handing out some good lines to these chicks, but Russell clearly has no intentions of shacking up and getting serious with anyone in the near future. That would totally ruin the “lonely” image he’s worked so hard to project over the past month or so. The Mail has a bird’s eye and interior views of Russell’s new $1.9 million house, and it is a true “bachelor pad” with all of the trimmings. I doubt he will tie himself down while living there.

Now is Russell actually talking smack about Katy to his latest sexual conquests? The Us story really provides no details of what these women allegedly heard, and I really don’t think he’d be that insensitive to gossip about her at this stage while everything is still so raw. Sure, he might end up revealing certain tidbits in an upcoming book, but at this point, Russell is probably just getting laid, and I doubt he’s doing much talking about anything in the process.

    Scandalous and I believe this!

    The man does love his scarves.

  3. Ravensdaughter says:

    He’s shagging other chicks-does that mean he’s a “sex addict” again.
    I have never really understood that designation-when does a womanizer become a sex addict?

  4. Capella says:

    Let us put both these stories together, and we end up with a couple where the woman parties hard, disregarding her husband’s daily fight with sobriety; And the husband sleeps around, excusing his behavior by saying it is all his wife’s immature and hard partying’s fault.

    These two were NOT meant to get married. They should’ve put religious beliefs aside, and tried living together first. It’s 2012. You need to test-drive it first before buying it. ESPECIALLY when you work in a social environment, where temptation for cheating and drugs are rampant!

  5. bitca says:

    I totally believe the K Perry/blow part. The fave gossip euphemism IS “partying,” a term that has been associated with her for a while. She looks coked to the gills in half her photos, & people probably ask if she wants to do a few lines wherever she goes. The personality changes—tho described in rather a sappy way in the article—sure fit the basic pattern. And it is classic cokehead behavior to “party” when your partner is a recovering addict.

  6. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I don’t get Katy Perry’s popularity – I think her voice grates and her songs are mindless dribble

    Russel drives me mad with his whole being – just irritating

    Totally believe Katy is drugging and Russel is sh*gging, so no surprises!

  7. Newtsgal says:

    Skinny jeans & cowboy boots

  8. LadyJane says:

    I don’t see the big deal with Katy doing the odd line of coke when she is out partying with her friends. It isn’t that unusual and I don’t think anyone is calling he a coke head. There IS such a thing as responsible recreational drug use. Not everyone is a raging addict like Brand was or Lohan is.

    • Leigh says:

      Oh wow… just…. wow..

      If you’re married to, or in a relationship with a recovering addict, it is absolutely a big deal.

      And no, I disagree, there is not such thing as “responsible” drug use. The use of drugs, in itself, is IRresponsible and reckless.. and, sure, many of us have experimented but more often than not, move past it and grow up into responsible adults..

      She shouldn’t have married a recovering addict if she didn’t have her partying out of her system…

    • bitca says:

      Uh-huh. You may be lucky enough to be able to play with hard stuff & not get addicted—but don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s a simple recreation—or that you won’t develop a habit later on. Coke creates a brief euphoria, followed by a fierce compulsion to do more coke. The full addiction process can be very slow, though. I have seen years pass with some people for their use to progress from a weekend “recreation” to an every-night need.

      Also, as @leigh said: it’s unconscionable to be getting high on anything when you’re with a former addict. Unfortunately, as I implied earlier, cokeheads tend to lose the empathy to think that way. They only care about themselves & their own gratification.

      Whatever. The entire marriage was idiocy & charade. And I’ll never understand why people publicly lie/deny repeatedly & vehemently when a relationship is ending. It’s inane, desperate, & weird; I actually miss the venerable phrase, “no comment.”

    • Annica says:

      LadyJane, you are in denial and fooling yourself.

    • Kate says:

      Tell that to the toddlers eviscerated in South America to ensure the population do precisely what the cartels tell them to do.

      It isn’t only the users who’re affected.

  9. BabyCakes says:

    I love the juicy gossip today.

  10. Asli says:

    Ten to one when Katy’s pop-fame is over she’ll be a refound preacher like her mommay. Touring and talking about Christ rather than kissing girls. Live it up, Katy, you won’t be in the spot light much longer.

  11. Julie says:

    I’ve thought for awhile her & Rhinna were using blow but didn’t want to say anything since I feel like the coke police on here. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s true. Wouldn’t surprise me if R’s recent hospital stay had something to do with overdoing it as well.

  12. Bette says:

    Gossip Cop debunked the “Russell has a new GF and is talking smack about Katy” story from Us Weekly yesterday:

    “If the report sounds rather dubious, it’s because, as a source close to Brand tells Gossip Cop, ‘None of this is true.’

    Of course, both Brand and Perry will be ‘moving on’ as time passes.

    But Brand is not about to move in with anyone, and Us Weekly’s recurring assertions that he’s trashing Perry every chance he gets are not the case, either.”

    I also don’t think he really bought that “bachelor pad” either. I saw a real estate website that had the exact address, and they showed that it had last been sold over a year ago, not just recently, so if he’s living there, it’s a rental.

  13. nina says:

    she’s been known for partying “hard”(wink wink) for years. She made a hot mess spectacle of herself during the warped tour when she was with travis mccoy still, and then she turned around and acted like he was the one with the drug problems in her songs on the last record, like she was some victim.

    I find her hypocrisy grating.

  14. Rainey says:

    Coke use would explain why her eyes always look like they’re about to pop out of her empty head!

  15. Alejandro says:

    Considering the people she hangs with I find no trouble believing this.With Katy and her publicist having US Weekly on speed dial trying to throw Russell under the bus it’s good to see him or his friends fighting back.

  16. Cathy says:

    Don’t you have any better pictures of him? Those cowboy boots are nasty. Matter of factly that whole outfit he’s wearing is nasty.

  17. Day says:

    What is it with these celebrities and coke? Is it like a pre requisite or something. I am not necessarily saying THIS particular story is true. But, it seems most celebrities get so hooked on coke and I just don’t get it.

    Edit: Anyway, I call bs on this story. Katy comes off as a drunk, a sloppy one at that, but I doubt she is on any hard drugs. But, you know how people are, if it is in a gossip mag it MUST be true. It is no wonder these trashy mags stay in business.

  18. Blue says:

    Despite all the rumours flying around, this is what I said from day one. They never should have gotten married in the first place. Katy is insensitive and immature and Russell is an idiot. He’s an addict trying to stay clean and she just wants to go out and party. What part of the coupling makes any sense? Russell needs/ed someone who understands and respects his struggle and his dedication to his soberity. Katy was not, is not that person at this stage in her life.

  19. Pazza says:

    Since when is Katy’s behavior new? Lonely in London knew what he was getting into and realized that Cupcake hypocrite tits couldn’t be discreet so after a while no one would believe his sober act. Russell has never dated a woman that wasn’t a hard partying actress or model that was hanging onto him for a couple of column inches. He had zero in common with Katy and hooked up for the PR bump but when he realized that she’d soon take his career back down further than before they married be ditched her. Good for him, but the way these two are both playing the victim when they knew exactly what they were doing is so stupid. He always had a look of disgust at her when they were out. The good thing for Russell will be if he remembers how annoying a boozy druggie is to be around and he’ll stay sober forever.

    I think the house is rented too and don’t believe the move in story. Definitely planted by team Katy. Because if the so-called new relationship woman told a friend that’s a friend to Katy, wouldn’t that mean she’s somehow peripheral to Katy’s circle and basically part of the same party scene? So he traded one lush for another? I doubt it. If he ever gets a long term situation, she’ll be someone outside the industry who appreciates that you have to spend Christmas in London with your husband if you want to stay married.

    I also don’t buy that he’s talking about Katy at all. He’s probably too busy working. Russell actually has talent and intelligence, after a while he probably just couldn’t take looking at Katy who is nothing but a wig and a pair of falsies.

    After all the stories she’s been leaking about Russell, I hope her problem really comes out and her brain dead teenybopper fans desert her.

  20. heidiho says:

    Katy Perry is wayyyy too hot for that goof. He’s not even funny wunny.

  21. Sasha says:

    I think Russell is intelligent and thoughtful enough at this point in his life NOT to talk smack about Katy. She was his wife (albeit briefly) and I think that it was a very significant relationship for him. I’ll really lose respect for Brand if he starts revealing all of Katy’s bad habits. Hope he has more respect for her than that, even if she doesn’t necessarily respect herself.

  22. kimberly says:



    Just expect any famous person with a jam packed schedule to be coked out. It is what it is.

  23. Lauren says:

    Katie is the typical child of bible-thumping parents..rebellious. Katie`s schedule this past year has been beyond hectic. Coked out indeed. Russell married her for her beauty & sexuality..duh. Cokehead bible-thumper.

  24. iseepinkelefants says:

    I can see Russell yapping. If you’ve watched him over the years you know he doesn’t hold back and it wouldn’t surprise me if his pillow talk includes comments about his ex. He’s not really a secretive, closed off individual. He doesn’t mind sharing really personal stuff with his adience so why would he hold back with a girl he just banged?

  25. homegrrrl says:

    Russell is older than a decade. He is responsible for his own sobriety. She’s in the music industry, and her hours aren’t exactly yoga ish. He was hot when she was hot, and he is her shaggy type. It’s Russell who should have known better than to.move the infatuation forward.

    I believe he acted like a newly recovered addict when he devoured her instead of just exploring the attraction. She is younger and had no clue how a dry drunk behaves in relationships. He’s the one who should have a qualified sponsor and good therapist. Like anyone at her age, she’s starry eyed and is a sucker for the illusion of love at 1st sighot.
    How would she have known or expected him to become.criticial of who and how she was when they 1st met? Are late nights or wild nights unusual for touring musicians? He is the one who showed his crazy. She is just doing her thing. He’s nuts. Sexy, kind of, but critical and addictive in every way but to.actual drugs.
