Katy Perry is cutting ties with Russell Brand in EVERY WAY.

The 27-year-old pop singer has unfollowed her soon-to-be ex-husband on Twitter. As of Friday afternoon (a slow news Friday afternoon) Perry no longer follows Brad.

She is still one of the 78 people Brand subscribes to however.

It's not surprising, given that Perry is only communicating with Brand, 36, via phone or email. "She's limiting those interactions," a source says of the couple.

"He's being so atrocious, she feels like she never really knew him."

Perry has been keeping Brand off her mind by focusing on her career: she performed in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Thursday, and she recently shot an Adidas ad.

"She doesn't want to look battered and have people for sorry for her," a source says. "She's very strong and confident and looking forward to the next chapter."

She's the most cheat-worthy star on the planet according to married guys, if she ever needs a little confidence boost. Or some amoral companionship.

Russell Brand is entering Justin Timberlake territory at Us Weekly apparently.

No matter how little evidence they may have, they're convinced Russell is a bad dude. Whenever Katy Perry gets around to writing material for her third album, the tabloid erroneously claims, she's got plenty of dark, painful memories to draw from!

The reason for that? Russell is (allegedly) penning a book about her!

Russell Brand and Katy Perry Us Cover

Despite public denials from a rep, the British comic plans to cover all the nitty-gritty, sometimes ugly details of their failed 14-month marriage ... Us claims.

"Katy is insulted and feels betrayed that Russell has treated her so poorly," a pal to the "Firework" singer, 27, tells Us. "She will never forgive him. Ever."

For the record, Katy says no one speaks for her.

Although Perry is supposedly "in panic mode" regarding her ex's memoir plans, she's back to work on her ongoing concert tour, commercial shoots and more.

She's taking pains to "limiting interactions" with Brand, another source says of Katy. "He's being so atrocious that she feels like she never knew him."

FYI, he's really not, as far as we can tell.

Katy Perry has been named the celebrity with whom most married men would love to have an affair, according to infidelity matchmaker Ashley Madison.

It's unclear what role her recent split from Russell Brand played in the poll of over 25,000 subscribers, but Katy topped the list, edging out Rihanna.

Kim Kardashian fell from #2 a year ago to #9, with 2011 winner Jennifer Aniston at #5. Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez fell off the list.

Other high ranking temptresses included Mila Kunis, Blake Lively, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson. Something for everyone there.

According to Ashley Madison's founder, Noel Biderman: "Our annual Celebrity Hall Pass survey reflects the revolving door of celebrity infidelity." Too true.

"Celebrity cheating has encouraged these conversations to take place and these days partners actually do give their spouse permission to have a Hall Pass.”

Not sure about that on a grand scale, Noel, but here's the survey's Top 10:

  1. Katy Perry
  2. Rihanna
  3. Mila Kunis
  4. Salma Hayek
  5. Jennifer Aniston
  6. Scarlett Johansson
  7. Sofia Vergara
  8. Blake Lively
  9. Kim Kardashian
  10. Sarah Palin

Hang on a second ... Sarah Palin!?!? Really people?

A new collaboration between Katy Perry and virtual reality computer program "The Sims" to create a Collector's Edition game with content and exclusives featuring the newly-single blue-haired hit-maker was announced today by Electronic Arts.

The company plans to develop multiple "Sims" games featuring special Perry-themed virtual goods and in-game content. The partnership launches in March.

Perry, showing off her new hairstyle, will also be featured in accompanying advertising and marketing campaigns for "The Sims" such as this one:

"It's cool to see the Sims' stage performances in 'The Sims 3: Showtime' decked out just like my California Dreams Tour," Perry said in a statement.

The 27-year-old adds: "Even my cotton candy video screens are in there! I always say I like to think of myself and my life as a cartoon, and now I'm a Sim!"

Perry worked with the Sims Studio to create accessories, clothing, hairstyles, furniture and props for the Sims game, available for pre-order today.

Perhaps Katy Perry's hair color reflects her mood.

Laying low in recent weeks, the recently separated singer braved the crowds at the LAX airport Monday as she caught a flight out to Singapore with her entourage.

Sporting blue hair, Katy has undergone yet another couture change since her split with Russell Brand. In recent months, she's also been a blonde and a ... pink.

Katy Perry apparently needs a little bit more time out of the spotlight.

The "Firework" announced she's bailing on her return to the public eye.

"Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People's Choice Awards," she wrote. "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS."

The award show tomorrow night was to be Perry's first public appearance since she and husband Russell Brand split up just before New Year's Eve.

Perry, who is up for seven People's Choice Awards, didn't give a reason why she's no longer attending. Her rep also declined comment on the topic.

Perry recently returned to Twitter, thanking her fans for making her "heart happy again," while also taking a shot at her parents and gossip sources.

"I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me," she tweeted with a hint of bitterness. "Not a blog, magazine, 'close sources' or my family."

She has two concerts scheduled in Indonesia on Jan. 19 and 22, so it may be awhile until we see her out and about stateside. Grammys perhaps?

Katy Perry returned to Twitter for the first time since her split from Russell Brand, and while she didn't address that directly, she made a few telling remarks.

The 27-year-old, who has been laying low since Russell filed for divorce, thanked her fans for their concern and well-wishes during a very difficult time.

"I am so grateful for all the love and support I've had from people around the world," she Tweeted. "You guys have made my heart happy again."

Her words for certain other figures in her life? A little less kind.

Katy Perry, Sunglasses

Katy, who was married a little over a year, lashed out at her parents last night for speaking publicly about her split from Russell - in church no less.

Keith and Mary Hudson, who are both Christian ministers, said that Katy's divorce was a blessing in disguise, generating interest in their ministry.

Katy Tweeted last night that no one speaks for her ... including her family. It seems she's not happy with the comments they've been making.

"Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, 'close sources' or my family," the singer wrote.

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.

Katy Perry has been following a "(Last Friday Night) T.G.I.F." strategy in coping with her divorce from Russell Brand, but also is very distraught, according to reports.

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.
