Katy PerryThere are some things you just do not say by text message, and asking for a divorce is one of them. In fact, that might be at the top of the list. Unless you found out something so horrible about your spouse that you fear for your life if you confront him/her in person, you need to have at least a phone conversation. At least. But text message is apparently how Katy Perry was dumped by one-time husband Russell Brand.

Katy opened up in Vogue magazine, saying:

He's a very smart man, a magical man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.

Yep, you read that right. Not only did Russell dump his wife by text message -- he did it on New Year's Eve! Granted, if the two weren't together on NYE (Katy was touring), then she must have already known there were issues. STILL. Common courtesy.

Judging from Katy's concert tour movie Part of Me, Russell likely dropped the bombshell right before Katy had to go onstage and perform too. What a jerk move. Can this be the same guy who picks up homeless dudes and takes them to breakfast? So much consideration for strangers, none for his wife?

Perhaps the answer can be found in a mysterious dig Katy gets in about Russell, saying:

I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can't necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.

Hmmm. The "real truth," eh? Wonder what Katy knows about Russell? Surely him cheating couldn't be earth shattering news -- must be something bigger than that. I have my suspicions!

As for her last ex, John Mayer, Katy admits she is still in love with him even though they are broken up, but also had some choice words, saying:

Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.

Eh, Katy. Women love the dark, brooding types. In theory anyway. Don't worry, you'll grow out of it. Hopefully!

Here's Katy talking about Russell about the time he dumped her. Have you ever been dumped by text message?
