Perez Hilton says his close friend Katy Perry is happy being single

Perez Hilton reckons Katy Perry is over ex-husband Russell Brand.

The couple’s 14-month marriage was officially dissolved earlier this month and the celebrity blogger – who’s good friends with the 27-year-old singer – insists she’s ready to move on.

‘She’s bounced back from the split completely,’ says Perez, 34.

‘She doesn’t even think about Russell anymore. Now she’s just enjoying some much needed time off.’

Last week, it was reported that Russell, 37, had referred to Katy as an ‘arse-ache’ during filming of his new TV programme Brand X.

But Perez – real name Mario Lavandeira – doesn’t think the comic meant his comment to come across as a serious attack against his former wife.

‘I think he’s being smart. He’s using her for publicity for his show,’ says Perez.

‘It’s a good tactic!’
