The tabloid magazine Life & Style Weekly sent out an e-mail blast about the aftermath of the doomed marriage between Katy Perry and Russell Brand. An excerpt:
After learning about ex-husband Russell Brand's late nights partying, the comedian's multiple women and even a one-night stand, Katy Perry is devastated, and sources tell the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now, that the singer wonders whether Russell really was the "changed man" he claimed to be when the two married in 2010. "I'm such a fool," Katy recently confessed to a pal. "I believed in him."Now Katy is leaning on her friends for support and even enjoyed a late night out with pals (including a bevy of men) in the early morning hours of Feb. 23."Katy was partying with a bunch of pals at the Spare Room at the Roosevelt Hotel in LA," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "She came in around 1:30 a.m. She was wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants with blue high pumps."Though the place normally closes by 2 a.m., it stayed open later for Katy and her crew."She was also with a bunch of male friends, and they played numerous games of bowling," the eyewitness reveals to Life & Style. "They were drinking mixed vodka drinks and having a blast!"And the 27-year-old singer seemed to enjoy getting away from all the chaos that's been surrounding her lately. "It was obvious that she liked being out and having a fun, carefree time, without crowds of people around her," the eyewitness tells Life & Style."She was all laughs and smiles with her friends," the eyewitness adds. "Security left at 2:15 a.m., but Katy stayed behind with her pals and continued the party."In early February, a judge signed a divorce judgment, effectively ending Katy and Russell's 14-month marriage. The divorce officially takes effect in July in compliance with California law, which requires at least a six-month waiting period between filing and the final decree.
