It must be getting semi-serious for the brand spankin’ new couple of Russell Brand and Katy Perry. It’s time to meet the fockers…errrr parents.
Now even though meeting the parents can be a very nerve-wracking time, we are thinking that Russell Brand isn’t sweating it. Sure, Katy’s parents are devout Christians and work as pastors, but like their daughter Russ isn’t a saint. Good grief, she kissed a girl and liked it. I’m pretty sure Katy’s “image” isn’t exactly fabulous in their eyes.
But meeting the ‘rents is in fact something that Katy is wanting Russ to do.
A source says, “Katy is as besotted with Russell as he is with her. However, her parents are extraordinarily strict Christians. Katy is sure that, after a bit of getting used to him, they would approve of Russell, but she wants to get that initial meeting out of the way as early as she can. Keith and Mary are devoted to the church and hold the institution of marriage as a central core of their beliefs. They are genuinely happy for their daughter, but want to give Russell the once-over to check that he is, in fact, as suitable as Katy claims.”
So just when will this meeting take place, ‘cuz I sure wouldn’t mind an invite or a peephole to peek through.
The source adds, “Obviously both Katy and Russell are very busy. Katy is heading back to LA soon to work on her second album. Russell has got some stand-up shows at the beginning of November, so they have a window of the last couple of weeks in October available to them. Katy is really keen to get the meeting out of the way early-on, so her and Russ can get on with their relationship without anything hanging over their heads.”
Hmmmm…wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall during that meeting?
