In a new interview with Australia's "60 Minutes," Russell Brand offered up a peculiar comparison to his split from Katy Perry after their 14-month marriage.

"I think if you're a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble," Brand, a recovering addict, said of his marriage. "I've been in a lot of trouble."

Perry, 27, and Brand announced their split at the end of last year, and since then, the pop singer has been romantically linked to guitarist Rob Ackroyd and most recently John Mayer. Meanwhile, the funnyman, 37, has reportedly been dating actress Jordana Brewster's sister, Isabella. "Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it don't," he said. "But if you sort of sense there's an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways."

When asked if he still believes in soul mates, the "Get Him to the Greek" star admitted, "I don't know really, because I sort of find so many different people interesting. I think if you're someone who's really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone else who's into mountain biking, and if you're really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who's into Eastern mysticism."
