Here's What Russell Brand Said About Ex Wife Katy Perry On Stage

Russell Brand performed his comedy show tour at the State Theater in Sydney, Australia earlier this week and an eyewitness in the crowd revealed that he did mention his ex wife Katy Perry briefly during the performance.

When he came on stage and was introducing himself, he actually mentioned her name. Then, he did not mention her again until the end of the show when he took part in a question and answer session.

“He was taking questions from the audience, and someone asked him about love,” an insider told Us Weekly about what happened. “Then, another person called out Katy’s name and Russell said she is a ‘lovely human being’ but wouldn’t say more.”

Katy and Russell married in October 2010 and were divorced less than two years later. Find out what Russell previously said about his marriage to Katy.

Russell Brand's Mom Suffers 'Life-Threatening Injuries' After 'Serious' Car Accident

Russell Brand‘s mom Barbara has been involved in a car accident.

The 42-year-old Forgetting Sarah Marshall comedian took to social media on Monday (April 30) to share the news with fans.

“My mum has been in a serious road accident and has sustained … numerous life-threatening injuries, so I won’t be able to do the rest of my Re:Birth tour,” he says in a video from the hospital.

“If you have tickets they’ll be refunded or possibly rescheduled but I can’t really imagine that, I certainly can’t imagine performing at the moment because I feel too sad and connected to this,” he continued, adding, “I apologize, but obviously it’s circumstances beyond my control.”

“I’m sad for my mum because she’s vulnerable, she only finished chemotherapy a month ago and for her to be in this situation already is very difficult,” he said.

Barbara was pulled from the hit-and-run crash on Thursday, The Sun reports, noting that she was en route to babysit Russell and and his wife Laura’s 18-month-old daughter Mabel at the time.

Russell also shared that the driver of his mom’s chauffeur-driven car, his friend, is on the way to recovery. Watch below.
