Katy Perry Turns To Russell Brand After John Mayer Split

Katy Perry may no longer be married to Russell Brand, but he is still the person she goes to for comfort. An insider tells RadarOnline.com Perry turned to Brand after her most recent split from on-and-off boyfriend John Mayer.

“Russell may appear like a comic book character, but he’s got a wise head on his skinny shoulders. Katy reached out to him after she split with John, bemoaning her luck with men and Russell provided her with some much-needed reassurance,” the source tells Radar. “He flattered her with compliments and just listened to her every word. Russell also used his wit to cheer Katy up.”

Perry’s close bond with her ex-husband is part of the reason her romance with Mayer did not work out, another insider previously revealed to Radar. “Their relationship was incredibly volatile, stemming from the jealousy they both harbored deep inside,” the source claimed.

While Perry was allegedly unhappy with Mayer’s constant flirting with other girls, Mayer was uncomfortable with her close relationship with Brand.

“She knew that she could push John’s buttons by comparing his flaws to what she saw was great in Russell, which he hated!” alleged the source. “Katy and Russell still talk to one another, and that was another thing that irked John. He’s never been in a relationship where he wasn’t the main focus all the time and it bothered him.”

Perry and Mayer’s split was confirmed last month by People magazine. In a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Mayer refused to open up about the relationship. "It was a very private relationship going in," he told DeGeneres. "It was a private relationship during and it's a private relationship still."

"I'm on the same journey as everyone else," he added. "Coupling is a tricky thing.”
