Russell Brand is 'quite well' following split with Katy

Tuesday January 17, 2012

Russell Brand has declared himself "quite well" following his recent split from Katy Perry.

Russell fielded several questions about the separation during a press conference to promote his forthcoming US comedy tour Strangely Uplifting.

He tried to change the subject and also questioned whether the split was newsworthy.

Asked how he was coping, he said:

"[I am] quite well, thank you. Are you asking because of recent events? Well I suppose what you're doing is you're making the mistake of seeing time as linear.

The Arthur actor added that the matter was between him and his friends and family, saying:

"So if I'd done something actually newsworthy... then I'd cover it. But if it was just more lacquered nonsense, designed to distract us from truth, then I would wisely ignore it."
