Katy Perry and Russell Brand cuddle up on the red carpet before their split

Russell Brand has opened up about his divorce from Katy Perry live on Australia's 60 Minutes show. The comedian was talking about why things didn't work out with his ex-wife, who he separated from in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage.

He said: "Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it don’t, but if you sort of sense there’s an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways." 

How very mature… that was, until his next comments.

He added: "I think if you’re someone who’s really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone else who’s into mountain biking, and if you’re really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who into Eastern mysticism.

"I think if you’re a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble… I’ve been in a lot of trouble."

Ooooh. Whatever could he mean? We doubt Katy will be too happy about his remarks. The singer has kept quiet on her marriage breakdown choosing not to talk about it in interviews. Still, at least she has John Mayer to distract her… RM
