London: Comedian Russell Brand shocked a live audience during the filming of his show by claiming that his ex-wife Katy Perry gave him “ass-ache”.

The 37-year-old was at Solar Studios in LA on Sunday filming this week’s instalment of his chat show ‘BrandX’ for American network FX.

“Russell was bantering with the audience, in particular a couple called Curtis and Katy. Then, all of a sudden Russell shouted: ‘Anyway, enough of you. I’ve had enough ass-ache from people called Katy in the last year’,” the Daily Star quoted an audience member as saying.

“It was obvious he meant Katy Perry.

“The whole room gasped. I think it took a couple of seconds for what he’d said to sink in.

“He then laughed and shouted: ‘Oh no, there might be a journalist in the room’.

“He shrugged his shoulders and murmured: ‘Oh well,’ before moving onto his next subject,” the source added.
