Brand asked Perry to cut clips from film

Russell Brand asked that any footage involving his relationship with Katy Perry be kept out of the final edit of her new film.

The comedian - who filed for divorce from Katy last December - requested that scenes in her concert movie 'Part of Me' would not focus on their marriage, which has since failed.

The 27-year-old singer reportedly spoke to producers about accommodating his wishes, but ultimately decided the film wouldn't flow without having snippets of their life together on screen.

However things apparently came to a head a few days ago, when Russell called Katy to see what had made the final cut.

A source told The Sun: "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 best comfortable with that. But Katy persuaded him to do it. Now they have broken up, she can keep whatever she wants in the film."
