Russell Brand Divorce: Says He Still Has 'Great Feelings Of Compassion' For Ex-Wife Katy Perry (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Russell Brand just can't stop talking about Katy Perry.

One day after tabloids reported that the comedian had made his first public dig at Perry during a taping of his new show, "Brand X", the funny man had only nice things to say about his ex-wife when he sat down for back-to-back interviews.

On Tuesday night, the 37-year-old comedian was quizzed about his recently finalized divorce from the popstar in an interview with fellow Brit Piers Morgan.

"Of course I still feel great feelings of compassion and warmth for Katy," Brand told Morgan, echoing the love and goodwill he extended to the "Fireworks" singer in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres back in May.

Brand took the high road again on Wednesday morning, when shock-jock Howard Stern drilled him for details on his failed 14-month marriage.

"When we got married, I just thought, ‘I’ve got to marry her, I just love her so much.' And then we got married and I thought, ‘Okay, this isn’t really working out,'" Brand said in a clip released by Stern's Sirius/XM radio show.

According to MTV.com, Brand even dished to Stern about tabloid reports that disagreements over starting a family played a role in the split. Brand acknowledged that they had discussed having children, but he refused to say anything more for Perry's sake.

"I don't want anything to hurt her," he reportedly told Stern. "She's younger than me, she's a young woman and she's beautiful and she's sensitive and I care about her deeply ... I don't want to be too glib... She'll read it and she'll be sad and I don't want that."

One thing Brand didn't mind confirming to Stern? Recent reports that he's in a relationship with Isabella Brewster, the younger sister of "Dallas" star Jordana Brewster. "Ah, yes, yes, and some things in the newspaper are true," Brand joked.
