Russell filed for divorce from Katy in December but was said to be “seething with jealousy” after seeing photos of her with new boyfriend, Florence And The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, at last month’s Coachella Festival.
According to ‘Grazia’ magazine, the photos are what prompted Russell to re-evaluate his relationship with the singer. He apparently feels he gave up on their relationship too easily.
“It’s fair to say that Russell only wishes Katy Perry happiness but perhaps he should have realised just how special his wife was when he was married to her rather than five months later,” a source told the magazine.
Russell is obviously sensitive about the whole Katy Perry thing. At the weekend, Russell launched a string of insults at an audience after they yelled Katy’s name at one of the comedian’s standup gigs.
It was also recently reported that Russell was dating David Hassellhoff’s ex-girlfriend Anouska De Georgiou after the pair were spotted hand-in-hand last month on their way to a charity fundraiser in LA.
“Anouska is a good match for Russell as she’s got a fiery personality. It won’t be too difficult for her dealing with the limelight. She had a pretty serious relationship with The Hoff a couple of years ago. They were together for almost a year, which in LA is a big deal,” a source told the UK’s Sun newspaper.
