Russell Brand is known for his offensive humor, but the comedian's insulting comments about ex-wife Katy Perry left even the most cynical spectators shocked and appalled.
Brand was delivering a comedy act in London last week when he began discussing Perry, who he was divorced from in December 2011. Brand shared his disdain for marriage, citing an insatiable sexual appetite as reason for his frequent philandering. "When you're married, it's one person. That's one more than a monk. It's not that different," Brand explained before targeting Perry in his rant.
Brand went on tell the audience that during his relationship with Perry "I'd be having sex thinking, 'think of anyone, anyone else,'" a witness revealed. Brand's offensive remarks about his ex came as little surprise, however, given his reputation for inappropriate jokes at the expense of others, which may have contributed to the divorce. Perry recently opened up about her romance with Brand, saying she grew tired of his insensitive jokes that she became the subject of during their marriage.
"He started making jokes about me and he didn't know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows," Perry revealed about her ex-husband's mean-spirited puns. The "Fireworks" star also revealed Brand's rather unscrupulous way of informing Perry he was ending the relationship. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me," Perry charged.
While Perry hasn't heard from Brand since the split, her ex hasn't been afraid to speak to others about the marriage. "It was a drag, man," Brand said about being married to Perry. "Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months. This is a sacred 14-month arrangement - beings on an elephants, ends in a newspaper," the British bad boy said.
Further fueling his playboy image, Brand said it will take a lot before he decides to get serious with someone again. "It's going to be hard if I go into a monogamous relationship [again]. I live a life where I have a lot of freedom, so if I meet someone and I go, 'Right let's be monogamous,' that's a f**king change," Brand explained.
