Los Angeles: Singer Katy Perry says she has not communicated with her ex-husband Russell Brand post receiving a text from him asking for divorce.

The couple`s marriage ended in December 2011, just 14 months after they tied the knot in India. Their split was made legal in July 2012, but the pop star claims she hasn`t heard from Brand since then, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"He`s a very smart man, a magical man and I was in love with him when I married him. Let`s just say I haven`t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011," said the 28-year-old star.

Perry accepts that their work commitments and her hectic schedule for her "California Dreams Tour" led to the failure of their marriage. But, she also suggested that 38-year-old Brand couldn`t cope being married to a strong woman like her.

She said: "I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could.

"At first when I met him, he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they`re like, `I can`t handle it`."

"He didn`t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can`t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like, `This isn`t because of me; this is beyond me.` So I have moved on from that," she added.

Perry was in a relationship with musician John Mayer for almost seven months. It ended in March.
