Russell Brand Doesn't Regret Time With Katy Perry
Months after his soon-to-be ex-wife Katy Perry unfollowed him on Twitter, comedian Russell Brand finally reciprocated last week. A lesser man likely would have made the talk show rounds this week and explained why he’s no longer interested in hearing about his estranged partner’s life, but Brand actually took the opposite approach. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he praised his former partner and said he doesn’t regret any of the time they spent together.
According to US Weekly, Brand spoke extensively about making life what you want it to be and continuing to find the positive aspects in yourself even when life isn’t necessarily what you’d planned. Here’s what he had to say about Perry…
"I was very happy to be married with her. She's such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."
It might have felt better for Brand to lay the hammer down and admit all the reasons why Perry wasn’t the right woman to be his wife, but ultimately, that would have done nothing but make him look like a bad person. It’s a testament to his character that he put on a smile and spoke of the good times, and I truly hope that mentality continues into the future. The relationship might have failed, but that doesn’t mean both parties weren’t affected positively by something they took from the other.
Perry and Brand’s divorce is still being sorted through, but by all accounts, they’ve hammered out most of the details and monetary arrangements.
