Russell Brand is 'willing' to make up with ex-wife Katy Perry

His call for reconciliation comes six years after he ended their marriage via text message.

Russell Brand infamously split from Katy Perry in December 2011 through a text message but now, the British actor says he would like to see some kind of reconciliation between them.

“It was a very important and lovely time in my life,” Brand told Grazia Daily about his relationship with the “Swish Swish” singer. “I don’t regret being married to Katy at all. I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman. I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind.”

Since their split, both Brand and Perry strove to be amicable with each other in the media. In a Vogue profile from 2013, Perry talked about Brand’s intelligence but, understandably, with a hint of tension.

“He’s a very smart man and I was in love with him when I married him,” she told the fashion magazine. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”

Soon after their breakup was announced, Brand told Howard Stern that the distance between them as touring, traveling celebrities is what drove them apart.

“I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other,” he said. “It mostly didn’t work for practical reasons … I don’t want anything to hurt her … I care about her deeply.”

But in her cover story conversation with Vogue, the “Part of Me” singer elaborated a bit further on the time she and Brand spent apart while she was performing.

“I do admit that I was on the road a lot,” she said. “Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie (Katy Perry: Part of Me). That wasn’t edited to leave footage out-there wasn’t any footage of him.”

Since moving on from the comedian, Perry has been linked to playboy singer John Mayer, DJ Diplo and most recently, in an on-again off-again relationship with actor Orlando Bloom.

Brand married Laura Gallacher, the mother of his 10-month-old daughter, Mabel, in August after a roller-coaster courtship of their own.
