Katy Perry’s alarming nickname for Russell Brand is revealed amid allegations of rape and sexual assault surrounding her ex husband
Katy Perry’s alarming nickname for her ex husband Russell Brand has been revealed amid the rape and sexual assault allegations surrounding the British comedian.
Piers Morgan recalled in The Sun the singer’s nickname for the renowned TV presenter after he tried to interview the Roar hitmaker in 2013.
The journalist later revealed to Russell that he had heard from the singer herself that she had nicknamed her ex-husband Rasputin.
Rasputin means ‘debauched one’ in Russian and is the historical figure known for seducing women.
He had major influence in the Russian court during the 1900s but was known as ‘Russia’s greatest love machine’.

When Piers revealed the nickname to Russell, the star was ‘thrilled’ by the label.
The couple were married in October 2010 however the comedian filed for divorce from Katy- who was on tour at the time – in December 2011 after just 14 months of marriage.
Hearing the nickname Russell said: ‘He was a pretty powerful bloke, he could manipulate folk with his eyes.’
Some of Russell’s alleged victims have noted a ‘glazed look’ in the star’s eyes that they noticed during the moments of alleged sexual assault.
One woman who accused Russell of raping her against the wall in his Los Angeles home in 2012 described the alleged assault in the following words.
‘I’m stuck underneath the painting and he’s pushing up against me. He’s a lot taller than me. And he has that glazed look in his eye again. And I can’t move. And I told him, ‘Get off, get off’.’
Talking to Piers, Brand continued: ‘I like Rasputin… he was all right, wasn’t he… a mad monk with magical, mystical powers, having it off with everyone, drinking and getting into fights.’
Rasputin was said to have eased the Tsar Nicholas II’s son, who had haemophilia, when he was uncontrollably bleeding.

Meanwhile out of the court he said that sex with him had healing affect and he was rumoured to be having an affair with the Tsar’s wife, Alexandra.
So far Katy has remained silent on the allegations surrounding Russell after he was accused of a series of lurid allegations from four women including rape and sexual assault.
He vehemently denies the claims, which were first disclosed by Channel 4’s Dispatches and The Sunday Times.
Piers revealed how he tried to interview his ex wife at a Vanity Fair party in Washington DC back in 2013.
Katy hadn’t been ready to talk about the breakdown of the marriage at the time, but reportedly said: ‘Because you’ll get the truth out of me, and I’m just not ready to tell you the truth. In fact, I’m not sure I’m ready to admit the truth to myself.
‘You Brits are all the same, so damn confident… Trouble is, I find that irresistible. I love Brits… Well, not all of them – not Rasputin, obviously.’
While Katy has continued posting unrelated content on her social media she is yet to address the claims.
She told Vogue earlier in the month: ‘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.’

Katy shared her first post on Instagram on Tuesday since the allegations came to light over the weekend.
Avoiding any mention of her ex-husband Brand, Perry shared photos of her new line of cowboy boots, including a picture of herself posing on a scooter.
The caption read: ‘Scootin n bootin’, as she kept a dignified silence on the matter, after previously admitting she knew ‘the truth’ about Brand.
Speaking to Vogue she said at the time: ‘He’s a very smart 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.’
