Half a year after deciding that being married to Katy Perry wasn't the best thing for him, comedian Russell Brand is having second thoughts. “Seething with jealousy,” he sent Katy a very long email admitting that divorce was a mistake and asking for a second chance, it has emerged.
Katy and Russell surprised the world when they went public with their engagement, and even more when they got married shortly afterwards.
Their courtship was brief but passionate, as was their marriage, which lasted merely 14 months.
Brand filed for divorce in December citing irreconcilable differences, but he's already having second thoughts about it, the Daily Mail
reports, citing unnamed but allegedly reliable sources.
According to the British tab, Russell saw photos of Katy at Coachella 2012 with her new boyfriend
, and it made him realize what he'd been missing out on.
Now that he no longer has Katy, he loves and appreciates her even more, the Mail would have us believe.
Not only that, but he also took active steps to get her back by sending her a very long email in which he explains the position he's in, he apologizes and virtually begs for them to be reconciled.
“The British comic is said to be 'seething with jealously' after his ex-wife Katy Perry was pictured at Coachella last month with Robert Ackroyd of Florence and the Machine. Which led him to send her a long email admitting that he 'gave up' on their marriage too soon,” the Mail reports.
“Word has it Russell was 'seething with jealousy' when he saw pictures of her with Rob. He apparently feels he gave up on their relationship too easily,” an unnamed source tells the paper.
“It’s fair to say that Russell only wishes Katy happiness but perhaps he should have realized just how special his wife was when he was married to her rather than five months later,” adds the tipster.
Neither Russell nor Katy ever spoke about the reasons
their marriage didn't work out, which gave the tabloids plenty of room to speculate.
Their different lifestyles and hectic schedules are considered to be two of the most important reasons for the split.
