Burn! Russell Brand Slams Katy Perry

Newsflash: Katy Perry is a pain in the ass.

This according to her now ex-husband, comedian Russell Brand.

Brand let his true feelings about his ex-wife slip during a Los Angeles taping of his late night show, Brand X. The day before their divorce was finalized, the newly-divorced funnyguy shocked a live audience during the filming of his new FX show by saying the “I Kissed a Girl” singer gave him “ass-ache.”

Well, that sounds painful.

Rusty Rockets, 37, was at Solar Studios in Los Angeles filming this week’s installment when he let it rip.

An audience member told Britain’s Daily Star:

“Russell was bantering with the audience, in particular a couple called Curtis and Katy. He got onto the subject of their sex life. Katy was giving as good as she got. Then, all of a sudden Russell shouted: ‘Anyway, enough of you. I’ve had enough ass-ache from people called Katy in the last year.’”

Oh boy.

“It was obvious he meant Katy Perry. The whole room gasped. I think it took a couple of seconds for what he’d said to sink in. He then laughed and shouted: ‘Oh no, there might be a journalist in the room.’ He shrugged his shoulders and murmured: ‘Oh well,’ before moving onto his next subject.”

Russell and Katy announced plans to end their 14 months of marriage in December. Both parties signed the paperwork to dissolve the union on Feb. 8.

Brand balked at the chance to sue Perry for spousal support. The Grammy winner gets to keep all of the estimated $44 million she made during the couple’s prenup-less union — half of which Brand could have claimed under California’s community property laws.
