Dad! What did we say about talking to reporters? Mom, can you please keep Dad off the phone? Katy Perry, we feel your pain; we know our dad would gab to the media about our love lives, if anyone actually cared about our love lives, too. “Her career got really busy and she did not get to see that much of Russell [Brand],” Katy’s dad Keith Hudson told Us Weekly about his daughter’s divorce. “It was just one of those things.” As for his former son-in-law, Keith still describes Brand in glowing terms, terms we’re sure Katy loves to hear every time she calls home. “There are no hard feelings towards Russell,” Hudson gushes. “I just received a text from him the other day in fact. He is a wonderful and smart guy.” We’re sure the fact Russell didn’t want any of Katy’s millions couldn’t have hurt his reputation with the family, either; we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s still invited to Thanksgiving! Or the next wedding!
Unfortunately, it seems that Us Weekly squandered the opportunity to ask Pop Perry about the Kanye West/Katy Perry hook-up rumors. Do dads love Kanye as much as we do? As for his daughter’s most recent alleged crush, model Baptiste Giabiconi, Keith hasn’t grilled him about his 401k or taken him to check out Keith’s model train set just yet. “I don’t know anything about this male model guy,” Hudson claimed, adding, “She is healthy and happy now!” Aw, dads really are the best. Even the gossipy ones.
