Katy Perry says World Cup is ruining Russell Brand romance

London: Katy Perry has revealed that the World Cup has ruined her romantic life with fiancee Russell Brand, as he spends most of his time following games on TV.

The singer has said that she’s barely spent any time with her husband-to-be, as he is fully focused on the soccer tournament in South Africa.

Perry has also admitted Brand shunned her when his favourite team England took on Slovenia in a crucial qualifier.

"It`s funny because he`s always there for me and we`re always there for each other. (On Wednesday) we had a day off - he had a day off as well because he`s been busy promoting his movie and the game was on,” the Daily Star quoted the pop star as telling the BBC Radio 1.

"Everybody in England, everywhere, was quiet, no one is on the street.

"We were watching the game and I was like messing with him saying, `Darling, I really want to go outside.` And he was so caught, he was like, `But the game, the game...` But I knew I wasn`t gonna pull him away from that game. So I just took a nap.

She added: "Everything is about football right now. It`s like, when I was with him last night he was up late watching football. And he was online reading all about it and it`s like, `How much can you read?`"
