Katy Perry dumps Rob Ackroyd; Russell Brand lies in wait

Geographical considerations are behind the split
Katy Perry dumps Rob Ackroyd; Russell Brand lies in wait.

Katy Perry has split from Rob Ackroyd, news which may be of interest to Russell Brand, who has admitted that "he gave up on their relationship too easily".

The One That Got Away hitmaker has decided not to pursue a love interest in the Florence + the Machine guitarist - who she met at last month's Coachella Music Festival - but second thoughts about Brand are not part of the official reasons for the split.

Instead, Perry blames working commitments.

A source said: ''The main thing which led to her split with Russell was spending the majority of her marriage to him on tour and she said dating Rob felt like being with ­Russell all over again.

''It's a shame as they both liked each other. Rob was gutted but Katy said she didn't want to get in too deep and then break his heart so it was best to cut things off before they got serious.''

The split has come as a shock to friends as Katy had appeared smitten with the musician and they were in ''constant'' contact.

The source added to the Sunday Mirror: ''Rob was the first guy Katy had been with since splitting from Russell.

'They would speak on the phone up to three times a day and she'd be constantly texting him.''
