Katy Perry - Katy Perry Reveals Russell Brand Texted Her For Divorce

It's every relationship's worst nightmare: being dumped by text - only this time Russell Brand ramped up the rudeness by asking former wife Katy Perry for a divorce in a New Year's text.

Speaking to US Vogue magazine in a candid interview, 28 year-old Perry spoke of the pitfalls of her 14 month marriage and identified Brand's ego as a key reason their marriage failed: "I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they're, like, I can't handle the equalness. He didn't like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour."

Perry described 38 year-old British comedian Brand as "smart" and "magical" until he became "controlling, which was upsetting."

She admitted that initially she felt responsible for the split due to her heavy touring schedule, yet hints there may have been other factors that forced them apart: "I found out the real truth, which I can't necessarily disclose."

Indicating their separation was indeed acrimonious, Perry revealed the pair are no longer on speaking terms: "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31 2011."

The 'Firework' singer began an on/off relationship with singer John Mayer, until she recently confirmed it was over although she claimed to be still "madly in love" with him: "Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds."

Since splitting from Mayer, she has been recently romantically linked with lead Twilight star, Robert Pattinson, as the pair have been pictured out dating after Pattinson's May dumping of long-term girlfriend and fellow Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart.

Despite a love life in turmoil and a tendency for "broken birds" Perry, who is said to be working on a new album, showed her optimism for future relationships:"I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way. I know I'm worth it."
