Russell Brand addresses divorce rumors, 'I am really happily married' - See video
Just a day after Katy Perry took to her official Twitter page to deny rumors that she and husband Russell Brand were heading for a divorce, Brand addressed the rumors himself with his trademark comedic wit.
The comedian appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres" show on December 2 and talked about the internet's role in the rumors. "There are always rumors, aren't there? In the end you have to just not engage with Internet technology," he said. "Which is difficult because a lot of the nude women websites I quite enjoy!"
"I've treated the whole Internet now as if it's a wicked little liar," he added. "Yeah. I am really happily married."
Perry, 27, and Brand, 36, were married on October 23, 2010 in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan, India, where Brand also proposed to the singer. The two began dating in September 2009 after the singer performed on the MTV Video Music Awards that were hosted by Brand.
"Being famous is like a little bit of you is taken away and goes off and lives on its own and does what it wants. I wish it would do more interesting things," he said about his fame and how rumors get started. "I'm married to Katy, perpetually. Until death do us part was the pledge. I'm still alive."
Brand also talked about his desire to start a family. "I really would like one," he told DeGeneres about having children. "I love those little babies in the beginning.They're so lovely at that bit."
Though Brand is looking forward to having children eventually, Perry has had to deny rumors that she is already pregnant. In fact, in her Twitter statement to deny the divorce rumors, Perry compared herself to a famous soap character.
"First I'm pregnant & then I'm divorced. What am I 'All My Children'?! #ericakane #pshhh #ifihadadollarforeverytime," Perry wrote, referring to the soap opera character played by Susan Lucci on the long running series.
Last month the singer laughed off rumors that she was expecting telling "The Insider" that the bump people saw in her tight-fitting dress at the American Music Awards was from too much fast food.
"I like In-N-Out Burger and Taco Bell and if you want to make that pregnant that's your problem," she told the entertainment program. "I still love drinking alcohol so not yet."
Up next for Brand is the role of Lonnie in "Rock of Ages" musical with Tom Cruise. Check out Brand's interview with Ellen DeGeneres below.
