UPDATE: Perry claimed on Monday, May 25, that the interview was conducted many years ago. 

Cutting him off cold turkey. When Russell Brand abruptly filed for divorce from Katy Perry in late 2011, he famously texted the pop star, now 30, to let her know. In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the "Roar" singer revealed that she hasn't spoken to her ex since. 

"He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce," she said. "I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say."

The pair married in 2010 in an exotic wedding in India, and they got a cat together they named Rusty — a combination of their two names. 

"I still have the cat," Perry said. "But I’ve changed her name to Monkey."

Though her very public divorce has been a source of pain for the singer — inspiring much of her Prism album — it hasn't closed her off to love. 

"No, absolutely not," she said when asked. "I’m excited by whatever it brings. I’m excited by my own evolution. I don’t want to end up bittersweet. I have to evolve, I have to continue to push people’s perceptions of me. As an artist I like to do that, keep people on the edge of their seats."
