Rumors are flying that Katy Perry is trying to get Russell Brand back.  Although three months ago she released her song “Part of Me” as revenge towards Brand, Perry has seemingly had a change in heart.  According to, “Katy’s been trying to get him back!” says a source.  “She’s a lost soul right now.” Perry’s change of mind came from a recent trip to India on April 3, the same place where she and Brand were married in 2010.  A source says, “She’d already been missing Russell.  Being back there stirred up even more old feelings.” A friend of Perry’s said that the duo getting back together would be a “long shot.”  “Right now, Katy and Russell are trying to get to the point where they can at least be friends.”

When is it OK to take an ex back after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking up with your significant other is a tragic experience, and depending on the circumstances, getting back together with your ex could make more drama.  Cupid has some tips:

 1. Your ex changed: So maybe your ex used to have a horrible habit of overreacting and arguing too much, but took some anger management classes, just for you.  That’s a sign you should get back together.  If your ex can realize he has a problem and create a solution, then it’s acceptable to get back together, as long as you’re sure he changed.

2. Your ex didn’t cheat: If your past lover did not break your heart, then it’s okay to talk through things and try to sort out your differences.  However, keep in mind that if your ex did something that makes you look bad, like cheating on you,  it will be even more embarrassing if you take him back so easily.

3. You both miss each other: No matter what terms you and your ex-beau split up on, getting back together has to be mutual.  You can’t force someone into falling back into love with you.  Missing each other is a big step toward working through issues and becoming a couple again.
