Russell Brand Burns Ex-Wife Katy Perry in New Documentary

A brief moment in the trailer for Russell Brand’s new documentary BRAND: A Second Coming is apparently only a hint of what the rest of the film holds.

“Oh my f—king god. I’m living this life of the very thing I detest. Vapid, vacuous celebrity. Fame and power and money is bulls—t,” he says in the trailer, followed by a clip of ex-wife Katy Perry saying, “I don’t wanna give all this up.”

The Daily Mail reports that in the rest of the movie Brand mocks Perry in a stand-up routine, and tells his friend Stephen Merchant, “This is my suspicion, that at some point, to be happy, I’m going to have to walk away.”

Apparently their relationship wasn’t inspiring him spiritually, which I guess is fair?

Brand and Perry were only married for 14 months after getting hitched in 2010. Brand famously informed Perry of his decision to divorce via text message, much worse than Joe Jonas’ infamous 27 second phone call dumping Taylor Swift. Congratulations Russell!

Also worth noting, Brand seems to think he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. Cool guy! He does have a heck of a smile at least.
