Russell Brand split from Katy Perry four months ago, but he still seems to be very sensitive when it comes to his ex!
And an audience member at Russell's stand-up comedy show at the Borgata Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., on May 5 found that out the hard way.
"This guy randomly yelled out 'Katy Perry,' and at first, Russell didn't make much of it," an audience member tells Life & Style. "But in a little while, he did it again and Russell lost it. He actually climbed down off the stage, made the crew turn the house lights up and told the audience to point the guy out."
Once Russell found his heckler, he didn't hold back!
"He tore into him for maybe three or four minutes, standing right there in the middle of the crowd with the lights up," the guest adds.
And here's what the comedian said: "I was hoping that your personality was a result of physical beauty, and then I saw you. I thought, This guy's confident because he's incredibly handsome. But look at you. You look like something that's fallen off the side of a church [likening the man to a gargoyle]. And what is it that you have rattling around in your mind? Some bizarre combination of alcohol and idiocy. Some cocktail of nothing. And yet you have the confidence to continue shouting." (See it all go down in the video below -- warning: explicit language!)
"He went on to attack everything from how good he thought the guy would be in bed to accusing him of being impotent. It must have been humiliating for the guy; it seemed to go on forever," the eyewitness tells Life & Style. "Eventually he pulled it together and got back on the stage, and being Russell, he told the guy he'd just tore apart that he loved him."
As Life & Style was the first to report, Katy, 27, has moved on with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd after being linked to French male model Baptiste Giabiconi.
Since filing for divorce from the pop songstress on Dec. 30, Russell, 36, has been spotted with a bevy of women including artist and model Oriela Medellin, Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas and, most recently, British socialite Anouska De Georgiou.
The pair were granted a divorce in February, but it will not become effective until July because of a California law requiring a six-month waiting period.
