No irate ex in-laws here!
Katy Perry and Russell Brand's divorce is seemingly amicable, after all -- at least according to the pop starlet's father, fundamentalist pastor Keith Hudson.
The 27-year-old "Part of Me" singer's minister parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, attended Saturday's 100th anniversary bash for the Patricia Bragg health food company in Anaheim, Calif., and her dad told Us Weekly things are anything but chilly with his former son-in-law.
"There are no hard feelings towards Russell -- I just received a text from him the other day, in fact. He is a wonderful and smart guy," Hudson said of British comic Brand, 36, who filed for divorce in late December after 14 months of marriage; the split will be finalized this June.
Returning from Paris Fashion Week imminently, "Katy is doing well just now," her dad said.
What went wrong with the oddball marriage? According to Keith, "Her career got really busy and she did not get to see that much of Russell -- it was just one of those things."
Married for 30-plus years, he and wife Mary have avoided similar pitfalls themselves, he said, thanks to a simple secret. "I always say, 'Yes, honey!'" Hudson joked.
While in Paris, Perry was romantically linked to sexy male model Baptiste Giabiconi. So far, her dad's in the dark about that rumor.
"I don't know anything about this male model guy," he said. "She is healthy and happy now!"
