Katy Perry: Career broke my marriage

London: Pop star Katy Perry has hinted that ex-husband Russell Brand was threatened by her career, leading to the breakdown of their marriage.

The `Teenage Dream` hitmaker, who split from Brand in December after 14 months of marriage, said that work commitments got in the way of their marriage, reported Contactmusic.

"I thought to myself, `When I find that person that`s going to be my life partner, I won`t ever have to choose between the partner and my career. They won`t be threatened or have weird motives. Then I started to realise, that`s not true," Perry said in the video of her new documentary film `Katy Perry: Part of Me`.

The 27-year-old says she did everything in her power to save her marriage, before finally acknowledging it was over.

"I have that same belief system with everything, from career to my life to my personal life, everything. And I will do everything it takes to not fail. And I did everything it took, but it still failed," she added.
