The main reason behind Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s split is being attributed to the singer’s close relationship with her ex, Travie McCoy, who she dated for years on and off before she met Russell.
McCoy, who’s mainly known for Billionaire, his duet with Bruno Mars, is thought to be the subject of the 27-year-old’s song, The One Who Got Away, and has apparently remained close to her throughout her 14 month marriage to Brand.
A close friend of Perry apparently told Heat magazine that both Perry and McCoy kept in touch.
“They’d often speak at strange times of the night because they travel a lot,” the Mirror quoted friend as saying.
“It’s fair to say that she opened up to him about how hard her marriage had come. Travie never really got Russell or their marriage,” the friend claimed.
The friend further added that the pop star is friends with all of her exes but particularly Travie, and this did annoy Russell.
However, McCoy’s not the only man who the comedian had a problem with.
According to the magazine, I Kissed A Girl singer had grown close to 31-year-old model Josh Kloss, who she starred with in her Teenage Dream video.
“Katy generally prefers the company of men,” the friend revealed.
“She was meeting up with male friends all the time and often swapped numbers with guys,” the friend added.
