Russell Brand: Divorce Made Me Consider Becoming A Monk

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret that Russell Brand has a habit of talking about his divorce, but this time he's opened up about how the end of his marriage to Katy Perry almost changed his career.

According to Yahoo! Entertainment New Zealand, the comedian shared details of his post-divorce life at a warm-up gig in London for his Messiah Complex tour.

"When I got divorced, I considered becoming a monk. When you're a monk, you're not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you're married, it's one person. That's one more than a monk. It's not that different," he said.

Brand's pop star ex-wife has opened up about the divorce as well, recently telling Vogue that Brand dropped the divorce announcement via text message.

“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,” she said.

Brand and Perry were married in October 2010 and divorced 14 months later in December 2011.
