Katy Perry finally gets an apology from Brand
RUSSELL Brand wants to "make amends" to ex-wife Katy Perry, seven years after their marriage ended.
The comic, 44, is hoping to meet pop star Katy, 34, in LA to say sorry, The Sun reports.
Brand, a dad of two wed to fashion boss Laura Gallacher, 31, has her blessing for the meet and he is said to have also got the OK from Katy's fiance, actor Orlando Bloom.
A source said: "Russell is hoping to see Katy next week. He is keen to make amends for everything.
"He thinks it is important to clear the air.
"He wants to say sorry - in particular for the way it ended which was mostly his doing.
"He also wants to apologise for his moods and jealousy."
They wed in 2010 and divorced two years later.
Meanwhile, the ugly fall-out from Katy Perry's purchase of a convent from the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 2015 for $21 million continues, according to the New York Post.
Nuns from the Order of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary have maintained no-one had the right to sell the 3.2 ha property except for them - the people who pooled their money together, raised by allowing production companies to film there, to purchase it in 1972.
Perry is locked in a legal battle with the Order.
The Post reports that the Order's Sister Rita Callanan has endured a year from hell after the court battle with Perry has left her nearly paralysed, penniless and without a home, she says.
"I really didn't like Katy Perry. I'm sure she doesn't like me," the 81-year-old nun said.
Sister Callanan, the only surviving sister of the Order, also claims that the singer has "blood on her hands".
On March 9, 2018, Sister Callanan's best friend, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 89, collapsed and died in a Los Angeles court as they prepared to face the star's legal team yet again. Sister Holtzman's last words: "Katy Perry. Please stop."
The sisters occupied the 2800 sq m Spanish-Gothic home until 2011, when, they say, the archdiocese forced them to move. The nuns then sold it to businesswoman Dana Hollister in 2015. The archdiocese, claiming the nuns had no right to do so, approved a sale to Perry.
In 2016, a judge declared the nuns' sale invalid, and a jury awarded Perry and the archdiocese damages totalling $21.5 million.
After all the drama, the convent is now back on the market for $36 million. Sister Callanan's legal team told The Post that Perry no longer wants the property.
Perry's representative did not return The Post's requests for comment. The LA archdiocese said: "While the formal legal option on the property has expired, the Archdiocese and Ms. Perry continue to be in communication concerning her continued interest in the property."
