Like “SNL’s” Kenan Thompson sings: “Ooh wee! What up with that? What up with that-uh?!”
Russell Brand might be on the road to becoming $30 million dollars richer from his impending divorce from pop rocket Katy Perry, but his reputation might be getting dragged through the mud. A source tells Us Weekly that the 36-year-old British funny man told his wife he wasn’t chuckling from her recent “SNL” stint, in which she riffed on Pippa Middleton and Christina Aguilera.
“He told her that she wasn’t that funny,” an insider says. “That really hurt.”
The insider adds that the pop star, 27, had pleaded with Russell to perform in one of her skits weeks before the show but that he refused and remained in L.A.
“There were so many times when he wasn’t there,” the source says of the Arthur actor, 36, who filed for divorce on Dec. 30.
As for the times when he was present, like her final concert stop in November, “He was totally uninterested and seemed annoyed he was there,” confides a witness. “I don’t think he sat through one song.”
