Katy Perry is shocked Russell Brand has moved on, he steps out with new chick

This week’s issue of Life & Style features a cover image of a somber-looking Katy Perry with the headline, “I’m Such a Fool!” If the story within the tabloid is to be believed, Katy is terribly distraught that her soon-to-be ex-husband, Russell Brand, has moved onto publicly shagging other girls without so much as a backward glance. Well I hate to point out the obvious, but when a man refuses to accept the $20+ million that he was entitled to as part of the divorce, and then his estranged wife signs divorce papers with a happy face and then trashes her ex-husband onstage at the Grammys, all illusions of an “amicable divorce” head straight out the door. And just to make it hurt even more, Russell’s choosing to do it with someone with a severely substandard acting reel.

While I do emphathize with Katy for the painful experience of going through a divorce (because it always sucks), she really shouldn’t be shocked when her tactics are not met with a candy-coated illusion (much like her music videos). Ultimately, Katy is said to be openly upset that Russell has decided to openly date other women. Hence the mystery woman who did the walk of shame outside his home and was further revealed as Oriela Medellin in a bizarre People profile. Can one really blame Russell for not respecting the sanctity of (a collapsed) marriage when his ex-wife failed to do the same? If Life & Style’s story is to be believed, then Katy pretty much expects the impossible:

It’s been just two months since Katy Perry and Russell Brand split — but Russell has clearly moved on already! Life & Style can reveal that the pretty brunette spotted leaving Russell’s new LA pad in the early morning on Feb. 12 is 25-year-old model and artist Oriela Medellin Amieiro.

“It was about 9:30 in the morning, and I saw them getting into a Range Rover,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “She’d obviously stayed over at his house because she was in evening clothes and high heels. She threw her head back and laughed — it looked like she was having a good time.”

A longtime friend of the former couple tells Life & Style that Katy now wonders whether Russell really was the “changed man” he claimed to be when they married in October 2010. “I’m such a fool,” Katy recently confessed to the pal. “I believed in him.”

Sources say the Arthur star has been on a tear recently, clubbing and coming on to women all over LA. In fact, less than an hour after he dropped Mexican-born Oriela home on Feb. 12, the Brit headed over to Earth Bar in LA, where he often tries to pick up women. “Russell is very flirty with the ladies,” a frequent customer tells Life & Style. “He gets a lot of phone numbers — the women just hand over their numbers and he takes them.”

And just a week later, on Feb. 20, Russell was again surrounded by groups of women during his stand-up show at Largo in LA.

“There were girls everywhere,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. At one point during the show, he invited a sexy blonde on the stage to talk about her bondage fetishes and was “very flirty with her.” But his mood quickly changed when he found out that another women he invited to the show was turned away. “Russell was pointing in the bouncer’s face and shouting, ‘What the f— is your problem? How could you let this happen?’” the eyewitness says. As he stormed off into the alley to his Range Rover, a woman jumped into his car! “She waited for over five minutes while Russell was on his phone before they pulled away,” the eyewitness adds.

“It’s very disturbing to Katy that he’s moved on so quickly,” the friend says. “She was shocked to hear that he was out partying again and trying to pick up girls. It sickens her — she feels humiliated and burned.”

According to further details from Jezebel’s weekly tabloid roundup, Katy is flummoxed that Russell is pretending that “their 14-month marriage never happened.” Again, I will refer to Katy’s smiley face and heart signature on the divorce papers. Her alleged sadness is also conveniently countered with a report from this week’s In Touch (again via Jezebel) that claims Katy is “on the prowl” and was spotted having dinner at the same table as Chris Martin while telling friends how “yummy” he looked. Really? This could actually be an occasion where I’d side with Goop.

Meanwhile, Fame has some new photos of Russell with his new semi-girlfriend and yoga buddy, Oriela Medellin. Unfortunately, Fame has described the photos as yet another mystery chick, but it really just looks like Oriela while she’s not wearing any makeup. Russell probably digs the no-makeup thing merely because it’s different than what he’s grown accustomed to witnessing. Kaiser thinks it’s even possible that he doesn’t really know Oriela’s name. It goes without saying that Russell’s scarves have eclipsed most commonly accepted standards of ridiculousness. Also … her pants.

    I’m shocked that she’s shocked.

  2. paola says:

    Ok Katy, move on now, you wanted divorce and he wanted divorce, now he’s a free man and he can do what he wants and it shouldn’t be anynone’s business

    • gg says:

      Yep, she’s a fool all right, but not for the reasons she thinks. He’s not flaunting it at all, he’s just moving on. He can’t help it if the papps are all over the place, it’s LA, for pete’s sake. They invented papping. And just because he’s moved on doesn’t mean her marriage was a sham. She’s an idiot for assuming she was enough to tame his ways. And she even read his book (I assume) before they got married. Take off the blinders, dummy!

  3. moopsie says:

    of course she is shocked, cause she is dumb

  4. Jules says:

    I wish the media would move on from Perry.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    Russell, it is not necessary to dress up like a swami just to go to yoga class. Get a pair of stretchy pants like the rest of us and get over it.

  6. Agnes says:

    yeah, she’s a fool for letting someone do that to her hair.

  7. Searching4grace says:

    Ha. I actually had to stop reading the magazine cover to finish my eyeroll. The woman he’s with is prettier without makeup than a lot of women with makeup. Those pants might be MC Hammer pants, but she’s got to figure if she’s going to be out with Russell Brand, would you rather get your picture taken in yoga pants that leave nothing to the imagination or MC Hammer pants that are comfortable to do Yoga in, and still preserve modesty from tabloids?

  8. Jennifer12 says:

    Well, he was married to someone with substandard singing.

  9. Asli says:

    Pah. She was singing about seeing another mans peacock not even a month ago (I think), she was pretty much wasted during their marriage and her song at the Grammy’s did not seem like a song for the broken-hearted. I dunno. I think they’ve both moved on.

    • Veruca says:

      I agree that they’re moving on, but as much as Russell might be enjoying the single life I get the vibe he’s still seriously pissed.

      Maybe I’m a romantic (or a cynic, depending on the day), but I thought/think he was really into the marriage. He strikes me as jaded now.

      Anyone who can say, “No, I don’t want 20 million dollars, thank you,” is seriously burning a bridge.

  10. Zelda says:

    That woman is way more beautiful than Katy Perry.

  11. birdie says:

    Umm, she sang she wanted to see Tim Tebow’s peacock..

  12. Alejandro says:

    Katy’s still trying to play the victim. rme

  13. Sisi says:

    so Kim K. couldn’t even behave for 70something days? Whahahahaha!
    I’m sure she hoped she would get the front page…

  14. Ainsley says:

    Katy Perry is a dumb pop tart who was created by a bunch of suits to appeal to kids who are too young to notice how much she sucks. I don’t blame Russell for wanting to wash that biotch out of his hair. Err, maybe hair washing isn’t that best way of describing it for him but you get the idea…

    • Jover says:

      Keep preachin ainsley she gives Christians a bad name and I’m not even religious; there simply has to be payola going on big time to keep her polluting the airwaves and in the media spotlight because God knows it’s not her personality, intellect, or *ahem* “talent.”

  15. normades says:

    He seems to have way more in common with this new chick.

  16. Sammi says:

    guys handle break ups this way. My husband did when he and I were dating and broke up for six months when we were 21. He told me it was his way of reasserting control and getting an ego boost since I was the one to break up with him. So Katy shouldn’t be too shocked. Russel is rich, famous, and has a reputation of being a lothario in the past (although i think he’s yuck)

  17. Stubbylove says:

    Hi, I’m Russell Brand, I used to be a pretty good comedian and we’ve established that unless I’m doing a version of myself, I’m crap at acting. Now I wear idiot gypsy clothes, drink coffee/tea drinks and do yoga. Ugh.

  18. Petunia says:

    Please. I’m sure that Katie’s moved on too. If she’s hypocritical enough to be shocked then shame on her. And anyway, he was a sexual addict, was he not? So was she expecting him to seriously leave it all behind for good? Silly girl.

  19. Bobby the K says:

    Someone should tell her that blue is a cold color.

    She seems so smug and confident in her boring blue and primary school styling. Why would someone dress like they work at Disneyland on purpose?

    She probably knows she’s not all that attractive – looks need distracting.

    But she should work with what she’s got, not against it.

  20. Kim says:

    She knew him how long before they got married?? She didnt know him at all & vice versa. They never should have gotten married.

  21. skuddles says:

    The marriage is totally dunzo…he’s free to boink anyone he wants, get over it Katy.

  22. Nikki Girl says:

    Team Russell, all the way. Katy is a twit, Russell was always too good for her. I’m happy he’s moving on, and I think that woman getting out of the car with him (who looks nothing like Oriela to me) is beautiful!

  23. iseepinkelefants says:

    Uh am I the only one who remembers when this odd relationship started? Russell had two girls exiting his flat, doing the walk of shame and then 3 days later it was Katy Perry exiting his Camden flat (the one next to Camden station) with her guitar slung across her.

    Russell has always been a ladies man and he’s never tried to cover that up. The paps constantly caught women exiting his house in the wee hours weekly.

    Too Fing bad you divorce him, what is he supposed to do cry about and threaten suicide? He’s just going back to “normal” Russell. Whomever he was while he was with Perry wasn’t the Russell we’ve grown to know since he sat naked in a bathtub with a homeless man on his UK MTV show.

    She’s proably just angry she did’t get to move on first. I’m sure she’s the one who planted all of those stories about her being seeing with guys and getting back with her ex.

    Girls like Perry are conceited assholes. They expect men to be in love with them forever.

  24. wendy says:

    Team Russel,
    If I fell in love and married a man who was a recovering alcoholic/addict etc I wouldn’t be getting wasted at parties. I’d try and stay sober with him. She didn’t seem very supportive from the sounds of it.

  25. d says:

    Immature, self-absorbed people are ALWAYS surprised that their former partner hasn’t slit their wrists in pitiful despair when the relationship is over. I can totally believe Russel did his best, Katy did NOT get him in any way, shape, or form, and he realized it was a mistake and moved on. Katy is NOT at a stage in her life where she’s ready for marriage. Russell…maybe, if he meets the right woman. He may not be ready for marriage, but for different reasons than Katy.

    I’m verklempt. Her level of stupidity knows no bounds.
