As we all know, the first rule of celebrity fight club is that the first thing you do after a falling out with another celebrity is write a tell-all book about them. Because it’s classy and sophisticated, that’s why. Anyway, no surprises here, but reports allege that Russell Brand is shopping around a memoir about his marriage to Katy Perry, because I’m sure this story doesn’t have the shelf-life of ground beef. Us Weekly reports:
As multiple sources confirm in the new Us Weekly, out now, her estranged husband Russell Brand didn’t simply blindside her with a December 30th divorce filing; despite public denials from a rep, the British comic, 36, plans to cover all the nitty-gritty, sometimes ugly details of their failed 14-month marriage in an upcoming memoir. “Katy is insulted and feels betrayed that Russell has treated her so poorly,” a pal to the Firework singer, 27, tells Us. “She will never forgive him. Ever.” Although Perry is in panic mode regarding her ex’s memoir plans, she’s back to work on her ongoing concert tour, commercial shoots and more — and she’s taking pains to “limiting…interactions” with Brand, another source says. “He’s being so atrocious that she feels like she never knew him.”
I don’t know what’s more surprising here: The fact that Russell is writing a tell-all or that he’s capable of writing at all. I mean, he does stand-up, but I always just thought his act came from getting massively drunk, shambling out on stage, and then whining to an audience for an hour. Go figure.
