Katy Perry's Dad Says Russell Brand is a "Wonderful and Smart Guy"

| by I Need My Fix

Despite Katy Perry and Russell Brand's surprising split, not to mention all of the rumors in the media, her father Keith Hudson still has kind words for the British comic:

 "There are no hard feelings towards Russell — I just received a text from him the other day in fact. He is a wonderful and smart guy,"

US Weekly caught up with minister at the 100th anniversary of health food company Patricia Bragg and went on to say that Katy is doing good. Now. Seriously, does that mean she had a rough go of it even with the smiley face on the divorce documents?:

"Katy is doing well just now, " her dad said.

What went wrong with the oddball marriage? According to Keith, "Her career got really busy and she did not get to see that much of Russell — it was just one of those things."

I guess papa Hudson is allowed to speak to the media now, or he's going to pay for this dearly, how knows? I find his reason odd. While I understand that distance sometimes does not make the heart grow fonder, this is a couple that felt so strong about their union they didn't feel the need for a prenup. They both knew what they were getting into and that their careers were busy.
