Katy Perry has yet to comment publicly on her very public split from Russell Brand. The pop star, who has appeared on American Idol in 2009 and 2011, has not been spotted publicly since her soon-to-be-ex filed the divorce papers over New Year’s weekend. Katy’s parents, on the other hand, have been spotted preaching around the country. So are her parents commenting on the split? Read on to find out.
Katy Perry was last spotted New Year’s Eve celebrating with friends in Hollywood. Since the holiday weekend she has been laying low and healing a broken heart after her husband of 14 months, Russell Brand, filed for divorce. She has been leaning heavily on friends like Rhianna and her family.
Raised by evangelical ministers, Keith and Mary Hudson, Katy grew up in a strict Christian household. Her parents embrace her career and even her choice the marry the outlandish Russell Brand. Katy’s father gave up drugs and found God at 24. Russell Brand is also a reformed heroin and sex addict.
While ministering across the country Keith and Mary bill themselves as “Katy Perry’s Parents” on marketing brochures, but claim not to need help from their famous daughter to find God. When Keith and Mary recently spoke at Church on the Rise in Westlake, Ohio, they remained mum concerning their daughter’s impending divorce. Although they did mention that they attend her concerts, but do not like the idea of people worshiping pop stars.
After they spoke, Katy Perry’s Parents, signed autographs and books, sold jewelry to fund a mission and gave away samples of Katy’s new fragrance, Purr.
Katy Perry will make her first public appearance on January 11, when she attends the People’s Choice Awards, where she is nominated to seven awards.
