A tennis pro and a druggie: Russell Brand's take on his marriage to Perry

Russell Brand can be relied upon for a bit of, let's say, direct commentary - something that his ex-wife, Katy Perry, must know only too well.

Still, we can't help but wonder what the pop star is feeling about Brand's latest rant about the demise of their marriage.

The British comedian, 37, has suggested to 60 Minutes that he and Perry are about as compatible as "a devoted tennis professional and ... a crystal meth addict".

Speaking about the unravelling of the 14-month union, he said: "I think if you're someone who's really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone who's into mountain biking, and if you're really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who's into Eastern mysticism.

"I think if you're a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble. I've been in a lot of trouble."

Amongst his trademark verbosity, the former heroin and sex addict was sanguine.

"Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it don't," explained the star of the highly publicised split in December. "But if you sort of sense there's an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways."

For her part, Perry said in her recent documentary, Part of Me, how sad she was for the marriage to end.

"I mean, I’m a romantic, and I kind of believe in this fairytale, and then I started to realise, oh my God, like, that fairytale that I had is not true for me right now."
