Russell Brand jokes about divorce at MTV Awards

Monday June 4, 2012

Russell Brand used his recent divorce as part of his comedy routine as he hosted the 2012 MTV Movie Awards in LA.

The comedian, who announced his split from pop star Katy Perry in December, told the audience:
"Last time I did an MTV show I ended up marrying someone.

"Tonight I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for my next wife."

Brand also targeted Kim Kardashian, joking: "Kim took a lot of pressure off with her world record marriage - thanks, Kim."

The Hunger Games was the big winner of the night, taking home four awards including best female performance for Jennifer Lawrence, and best male performance for Josh Hutcherson.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 took home the movie of the year award, with Taylor Lautner thanking the franchise's "loyal and dedicated" fans, while Twilight's Kristen Stewart also went on stage to accept the best kiss gong.
