Katy Perry, Russell Brand in crisis talks
Katy Perry and Russell Brand are meeting for crisis talks in Los Angeles.
The actor-and-comedian - who filed for divorce from the singer on December 30 - has flown to the US from his native Britain to discuss the details of the couple's separation ahead of attending the Golden Globe awards this evening.
However, while Russell is said to be "determined to move on" from the 14-month marriage, Katy is hopeful the pair may reignite their relationship.
A friend of the couple said: "He has agreed to meet her one last time. He wants to sort things out and finalise the divorce. Removal trucks have been moving his things out of the house they lived in and into a new place that Russell is renting.
"He needed to be in Los Angeles for the Golden Globes too, so it was an ideal opportunity to meet. He is determined to move on. But Katy says she is still in love with him and she still has hopes they might get back together."
Meanwhile, a distraught Katy is being comforted by her Christian pastor parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, who have also been "reaching out to Russell" in the hope of encouraging the couple to get back together.
The insider added to the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Keith and Mary flew from Georgia to Los Angeles earlier this week to be with their daughter. She is doing OK under the ¬circumstances, but this has been a very tough road for her.
"Keith and Mary have also been reaching out to Russell and sent him a text telling him he is in their thoughts and that they love him."
