The two are very likely related.
While in Kauai over the holidays to kick back and let the storm blow over back home, our beloved, newly-single "California Gurl" apparently spent little time relaxing.
"Katy partied the entire time she was in Kauai," dished an eyewitness.
Let's be clear: We are not judging or criticizing Katy for going out in the wake of the split as she figures out the next stage in her life. That's just what's happening.
In fact, the witness claims Perry seemed "very distraught over the breakup."
That makes two of them. Russell Brand sources that even though he's been doing his share of flirting these days as well, he, too, "is very sad."
A reconciliation is not on the table, though, according to insiders.
This seems like a case of two people who really wanted to make it work, and are sad it didn't, but Katy Perry and Russell Brand are just too different.
