Katy Perry's Parents on Divorce: A Gift From God!

by at . Comments

Katy Perry's parents are conservative Christian ministers, so you would assume they would be devastated by her divorce. If so, they're definitely not showing it.

It's been reported that Russell Brand filed for divorce in large part so Katy, who was raised in a devout Christian household, wouldn't have to do so.

God works in mysterious ways, though, and in the eyes of Katy's parents, her recent split from Russell is one of those ways. Say what now?

Because He used to the divorce to fill the rafters of their church, they say.

Katy Perry, Father Keith Hudson

Pastors Keith and Mary Hudson preached at Church On The Rise in Westlake, Ohio, on Wednesday, in an appearance advertised by the church.

Perry's mom, Mary, speaking for the first time about the split, half-joked, "I'm sure Katy is trending on the internet just to get you to church tonight."

"All over the world, who knows how God is bringing them in? The most important thing is you are here and God wants to put the fire in you in 2012."

It is a solid glass-half-full attitude if nothing else.

Perry's dad Keith added, "What has taken place in my daughter's life has opened many opportunities to go in and be with guarded and gated people."

"God has given us a new platform to go in and meet people - and they like us because you know what, we are cool. We are not threatening."

They do actually sound pretty cool.

SIDE NOTE / FUN FACT: Katheryn Elizbaeth Hudson uses her mom's maiden name, Perry, because she felt Katy Hudson would be confused with Kate Hudson.

According to reports, a video was shown beforehand featuring the Hudsons with Katy. The Hudsons are scheduled to appear tomorrow at a church in Georgia. This video (below) is posted on the church's site promoting the appearance:

Buncha weirdos IMHO if they think for a moment God would motivate a divorce in anyone just to fill pews. After all, God doesn't need a building to fill. He can meet with all anywhere He wants anytime He wants. pfffttt

Super creepy fake humans....ugh.


Her parents are cool with the divorce because they didn't get married in the church (I don't recall the location or the presider but there was a Hindu influence) so "it's not like it was real anyway!" There is your Christian lesson for the day.


Divorce is okay in the bible if the other person cheats or is abusive in some way, otherwise it is a sin. Personally, I think if you made a mistake in choosing the person to marry and feel the need to divorce God isn't going to smite you, haha. The "rules" of the bible are more guidelines so we don't make our lives miserable. Divorce is miserable.

I wonder how Katy's Christian parents feel about her traipsing around with her big boobs hanging out all the time.


Russell is soooooooo Gross, what did she ever see in him not sexy or funny and not sure why people think he is. Glad I won't have to look at him, every time they post photo of her now
