Katy Perry’s Man Friend Rob Ackroyd Confirms Their Relationship Isn’t “Purely About Sex”

Rob Ackroyd Confirms Relationship With Katy Perry

People deal with divorce in different ways. Katy Perry found solace in the arms of Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, while Russell Brand…well, we’ll get to him in a minute. “She’s the real deal. She loves London, so I’m just showing her the sights,” Ackroyd gushed to British mag Heat about Perry, whom he has been romancing since at least April. When asked by his interviewer if their relationship was first either coupledom, or “purely about sex,” he replied, “No, no, it’s not like that. Um, more like the other one.” We love how much Rob stuttered over the question, though we guess it’s an awkward query no matter what the answer is: “Why, yes! It is all about sex! Hot, sweaty sex!” or “Why, yes! I’m in love with Katy Perry and haven’t discussed it with her yet, so why not reveal it in this magazine right now?” See what we mean?

Meanwhile, Russell Brand bought a gun! Allegedly! He’s also gotten deep into meditation, so hey, whatever it takes to make ‘em happy. “I’ve been learning to fire guns. My mother said, ‘Don’t learn to fire guns, Russell.’ Well, I’ve learnt and now I’ve got one. I mean, me, own a gun? I shouldn’t really have access to hair gel but I can fire a gun if I need to,” the Rock of Ages star joked with Britain’s OK! Magazine. Meanwhile, “I’m dedicating myself to all sorts of interesting things you know,” the U.K. paper The Sun quotes him as saying. “Transcendental meditation, kundalini yoga, these things are right good for the old spirit.” Hey, go for it, you guys! More Kleenex, Ben & Jerry’s and hysterical crying for us then!
