Comedian Russell Brand has a strong bond with wife Katy Perry’s mother Mary Hudson

Katy Perry has joked that husband Russell Brand is a little too close to her mum.

The singer says the comedian, 35, has been having flirty online exchanges with Mary Hudson.

My mother flirts with Russell,’ explains Katy, 26.

‘He’s very charming with my parents and he has an ongoing email love letter with my mum, and she loves it.’

But Katy finds the emails a little weird.

It’s totally inappropriate,’ she adds. ‘I tell him to stop.’
