Russell Brand wants his estranged wife Katy Perry to eliminate footage of their relationship from her upcoming autobiographical documentary, “Part of Me,” the U.K.’s The Sun reports. Perry’s response: fuhgeddaboudit.
Perry is reportedly keeping the “warts ‘n’ all” footage of the couple’s failed marriage in the fly-in-the-wall production. “Katy had a word with producers, but decided the movie wouldn’t flow without having snippets of their life together,” the story reports.
A source told the publication: “When she first decided to make the movie in 2010, Russell agreed to be filmed on the condition he got to see the final edit. Being a fly-on-the-wall documentary, he knew full well that it was going to be warts and all — and wasn’t … comfortable with that. But Katy persuaded him to do it.”
Brand was reportedly concerned that footage shot while he and Perry were a couple might portray him in a negative way. But now that Perry and Brand have broken up, Perry has final cut — and put bluntly, Brand can take a hike.
“She can keep whatever she wants in the film,” the source said.
