Katy Perry Speaks Out for the First Time Since Divorce Announcement

Katy Perry has been uncharacteristically (yet deservedly) mum since her hubby Russell Brand filed for divorce. She was inactive on Twitter for well over week and hadn’t issued any sort of statement about the split. Even though Perry was quiet, the media and ‘sources’ weren’t, revealing all kinds of details about who filed and why, how her evangelical Christian family feels about the split and how she was coping. Now, Perry has broken her silence and issued her first post-split statements.

Turns out that Perry’s heart is slowly but surely on the mend, thanks to the outpouring of support she has received from her legion of fans. She tweeted last night (Jan. 7), writing: “I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the world. You guys have made my heart happy again.”

Perry also addressed all of the chatter surrounding her and Brand’s split, making it abundantly clear that the gossip is just that and unless you hear it directly from her, it’s not true. She posted: “Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, “close sources” or my family.”

Loud and clear, Katy! Glad to hear you are gathering strength from the support of your adoring public during this difficult and heartbreaking time.
