Katy Perry’s father says he has forgiven Russell Brand for abandoning his daughter after 14 months of marriage.

He said, “I forgive him. We all have had our pasts, but thank God we are forgiven.
Pop star Perry, 38, told Vogue in 2013: “I felt very responsible for how that story ended.

Katy Perry’s father Keith Hudson, 76, said he has forgiven Russell Brand for abandoning his daughter after 14 months of marriage.
Katy’s father said he had no animosity towards Brand, who ended the marriage via text message on New Year’s Eve in 2011.
Her father refused to reveal the information his daughter kept to herself: “I can’t say anything because I will get in trouble.”
Perry has declined to comment since Brand was accused of raping one woman and sexually assaulting at least three others between 2006 and 2013.
His spokesperson also declined to comment.
Brand is now married to author Laura Gallacher, sister of Sky Sports presenter Kirsty.
