Katy Perry has stated that former husband Russell Brand "really wanted to have babies" but she was not ready to make the necessary sacrifices.

The 29-year-old songstress told Marie Clare magazine that she was scared Brand was trying to make her a stay-at-home mum.

"I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, 'If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice - I'd have to be home more.' I really wanted to but I knew I wasn't ready for it," she said

Brand, who claims to have slept with more than 1000 women, began dating socialite Jemima khan a few months ago.

"I normally fancy lots of girls but right now I really like another one, and I'm not interested in anybody else. It's a bit like finding a surprise ballroom in your house," Brand stated.

However there have been reports of tension between Jemima and Brand. Her brother Robin Birley reportedly banned Brand from his exclusive club, No 5 Hertford St. in Mayfair.

Jemima apparently confided to friends that she was concerned about Brand's obsessive behaviour.

"She's described him as compulsive and obsessive. It's like he's addicted to her. She likes him but it's still too much. Jemima fears Russell's obsession is more about his demons than it is about her," a source stated.

As of now, Brand has stated he is single.
