Perry is currently dating singer John Mayer. The "Firework" star is ready with the release of her track "Grace of God", which she wrote during tough time of her marriage with Brand. It is from her latest album "Prism". "That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point," Billboard magazine quoted Perry as saying.
"I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?' All the songs are real-life moments," she added.Speaking about her marriage with Brand, Perry had once said, that Russell Brand was "a magical man" when she married him. Unfortunately, things changed soon and they separated in December 2011 - Russell Brand just sent her a text message to let her know that he wanted a divorce! Their union lasted for only 14 months.
In a personal interview with Vogue magazine in the July 2013 issue, Katy Perry had opened up about Brand. She said, "He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
She further added, "He started making jokes about me and he didn't know I was in the audience," she recalled. "Because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows."
