Katy Perry may reportedly be wooing recently single Robert Pattinson, but radio DJ Scott Mills has admitted that he reduced the singer to tears when he introduced her to a Russell Brand lookalike live on camera. 

DJ Scott Mills, in an interview with TV Biz, has revealed that he made Katy Perry cry when he played a Russell Brand based prank on her back when the pair were still married - and now he realises their marriage problems were to blame.

“Something was up — I couldn’t put my finger on it but she seemed on edge... Anyway, we thought it would be funny to get a Russell Brand lookalike to surprise her."

“Well, she ran out of the room screaming. My producer told me she was in tears in the next room, while I tried to smooth it over with viewers."

“I have no idea why it freaked her. For all I know they were having marriage problems. But she eventually did come back on screen. When there was a break she whispered in my ear, ‘You better play my songs forever!’"

“Looking back, we were pushing our luck.” 

Well, duh!

Russell Brand and Katy Perry later split in 2010, citing irreconciliable differences for their divorce, and the pair seem to have moved onwards and upwards since.

Russell is rumoured to be dating former Spice Girl and long-term pal Geri Halliwell, while Katy, fresh off the back of her movie, has enjoyed a relationships with the likes of Rob Ackroyd, John Mayer and now (apparently) the newly single Robert Pattinson.

We guess everything happens for a reason then...
