A source tells HollywoodLife.com what is going on with Katy Brand and Russell Brand’s marriage and why there’s trouble in paradise
As HollywoodLife.com first told you, Katy Perry and Russell Brand‘s marriage is “on the rocks,” but their love didn’t fall to pieces over night. An insider says there were problems six months ago, after Katy, 27, started getting busier with her career.
“Russell wants to be the center of Katy’s world and for the first six months, he was — but not anymore,” a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com. “When they first met, Katy was completely enamored by Russell, but over the past year that has all changed.”
In addition to having five singles from one album — which was a first for a female singer, Katy started her California Dreams Tour and has been having fun on the road. Meanwhile, her 36-year-old English comedian husband wishes she would settle down and play the role of wife.
“Katy is more confident now and has become even more famous. Russell is not happy with the situation because he is no longer the one in control of the relationship,” our insider says. “Katy used to follow him around like a puppy dog. Russell has a big ego that needs to fed constantly and Katy is just too busy with her own career to cater to him. They never should have gotten married in the first place. It was a whirlwind romance and now they are at completely different places in their lives.”
Russell and Katy spent Christmas 7,000 miles apart and have both been spotted without their rings.
UPDATE: Russell Brand files for divorce from Katy.
