For the longest time, I had been hoping for Katy Perry and Russell Brand to get past their differences and find their way back to one another. Then she went and hooked up with D-Bag to the Stars, John Mayer. And when Katy had seemed to tame the wild beast, she and John managed to be less annoying. Then — bam! Mayer went and broke her heart. Not exactly a shocker, but it was just as I was starting to not hate them together.
Now that Perry is single once again, Radar Online is reporting she has been texting her ex-husband for advice. Squeeeee!
“Russell may appear like a comic book character, but he’s got a wise head on his skinny shoulders,” a source tells Radar. “Katy reached out to him after she split with John, bemoaning her luck with men and Russell provided her with some much-needed reassurance. He flattered her with compliments and just listened to her every word. Russell also used his wit to cheer Katy up.”
The insider continues, “They were the best of friends when they were together, and despite the fact they are no longer married they’ve managed to stay civil to one another.
“She’s very respectful of Russell’s reasons for their breakup and would never overstep the line by begging for him to come back,” adds the source. “But she does, however, think that he was definitely the love of her life. It’s left a lot of people wondering if she thinks that she could have fought harder to save their marriage.”
Yes, Katy, he WAS the love of your life. Now go get him back! Seriously, it can’t just be me who could see the two reuniting. Obviously we don’t know all the reasons they divorced in the first place, but a lot had to do with their busy schedules (she was on that crazy tour, he was filming back-to-back movies). There’s something about Russell and Katy that just makes sense. They’ve been apart and know what it’s like to not be together; maybe they’ve both realized they’re just meant to be. I can dream, right?
