Recent allegations against comedian and actor Russell Brand have led to a resurfacing of Katy Perry’s past remarks about her divorce from Brand in 2010, as reported in The Sunday Times. Several women have accused Brand of sexual assault from 2006 to 2013:
“I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.”
In 2013, Perry discussed her breakup with Brand in an interview with Vogue, expressing her initial sense of responsibility for the divorce. She cryptically mentioned knowing the “real truth,” which she kept locked away, leading her to realize that the divorce was not solely her fault. This quote has gained renewed attention, with some speculating whether Perry had knowledge of the allegations against Brand.
The joint investigation by various U.K. news outlets revealed allegations of sexual assault against Brand, including one woman accusing him of rape in his Los Angeles home and another describing a disturbing incident when she was 16 years old.
