Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry almost two years ago, but the way he broke the news to the singer has just been revealed by Perry herself, and it's a doozy.

"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry tells Vogue when asked about her ex in an interview for the July 2013 issue. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."


Perry, 28, and the "Get Him to the Greek" star married in October 2010, after meeting a year prior at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

"The Smurfs" actress goes on to talk about the comedian's particular brand (pun intended) of humor, explaining that what she initially found charming about Russell soon began to take a toll on her.

"[He's] hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn't know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows," she tells the magazine.

Perry adds that Brand, 38, was also not too fond of her success.

"He didn't like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting," she reveals.

Now, we sit and await Brand's sure-to-be witty response.
