Katy Perry's father has revealed the pop star split from Russell Brand because her career took off and she didn't have enough time to see her husband.
The British funnyman filed for divorce from the singer in late December (11) after just 14 months of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences", but neither of them has spoken publicly about the reasons behind the break-up.
However, Perry's father Keith Hudson has now confirmed the couple's long-distance relationship just wasn't working due to the singer's hectic work schedule.
He tells Usmagazine.com, "Her career got really busy and she did not get to see that much of Russell - it was just one of those things."
Hudson also reveals the split was friendly and he is even still in touch with Brand: "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."
Perry has since been linked to model Baptiste Giabiconi after they were spotted together at Paris Fashion Week in France this month (Mar12), but Hudson insists he doesn't know if his daughter is dating again, adding, "I don't know anything about this male model guy. She is healthy and happy now!"
