…and considering the fact that he initiated the divorce it might not be completely out of place to assume the thought of having to bed just one woman for the rest of his life was just waaaay too harrowing to bear! Hope other women planning to marry the dude take note.
The comedian reportedly used his divorce and sex-life with the singer as material in a warm up to his comedy show in London on July 31.

Russell Brand made an off-color joke about how he considered becoming a monk after getting divorced from ex-wife Katy Perry. In terms of a sex-life, being a monk is ‘not that different’ than being married, he said.
Brand said ‘I’d be thinking ‘think of anyone, anyone else,’’ during sex with ex-wife Katy Perry.
“When you’re a monk, you’re not allowed to have sex with anyone,” Brand reportedly said. “When you’re married, it’s one person. That’s one more than a monk. It’s not that different.”
To the 38-year-old comedian being married to one person is apparently no different than being celibate. He went on to quip that he would often have to fantasize about other women.
Katy Perry, left, and Russell Brand divorced after a 14-month marriage. The comedian asked for a divorce in December of 2011, via text message.
“I’d be having sex thinking, ‘think of anyone, anyone else.'”
Brand ended his marriage to Perry, 28, in December of 2011. In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, the “Firework” singer revealed that the comedian sent her a text message on New Year’s Eve asking for a divorce.
In an interview with Vogue magazine Perry revealed she was offended at hearing jokes about their marriage when she surprised Brand at one of his stand-up shows.
The break-up, in which Perry is on a worldwide music tour and receives the message as she’s about to perform, is shown in a teary scene during her 2012 documentary “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”
The pop star, who has since moved on to a relationship with musician John Mayer, confessed to Vogue that she always found Brand’s sense of humor attractive, but didn’t appreciate being a punch line for his stand-up shows.
“He started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience,” she recalled, of a time that she surprised Brand at one of his shows
