Katy Perry has slammed an Australian reporter for allegedly rehashing three-year-old quotes about her ex-husband Russell Brand for a new article published last week (ends24May15).
The Roar hitmaker split from the British funnyman in 2011 after just 14 months of marriage, and her heartbreak was captured on camera for her big screen documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me, which was released in 2012.
Perry appeared to revisit the marriage breakdown in an interview with writer Chris Knowles for Australia's Sydney Daily Telegraph newspaper on Saturday (23May15), when the pop star allegedly revealed she has not had any contact with Brand since he texted to tell her he was filing for divorce.
In the piece, she is quoted as saying, "He hasn't spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don't want to talk about him - my songs will say what I need to say."
Perry has since taken notice of the article and took to Twitter.com on Monday (25May15) to fire back at Knowles for reportedly reprinting an interview from 2012 while she was promoting her Part of Me movie.
She tweets, "It's really inappropriate when journalists repurpose interviews done 3 yrs (years) ago in context of promoting a film & then stamp a new date on it. The Daily Telegraph & Chris Knowles". The star ends the message with a thumbs down emoji.
Perry previously spoke of her text message split from Brand in a 2013 interview with Vogue magazine, saying, "He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
