Fed up with long-simmering rumors that her marriage to Russell Brand is teetering on the brink of disaster, Katy Perry has fired back using the strongest weapon at her disposal: Twitter.
"Just cause we don't flaunt our relationship doesn't mean there's something wrong w/it," the doll-faced popster pointed out this week. "Privacy is our luxury. #tabloidsrtrash #gossipisgross."
Katy was apparently reacting to the latest round of split speculation set off when Russell dared to be photographed in the company of a brunette female to whom he hadn't vowed to love until death do they part.
Perry's tweet received an enthusiastic thumbs-up from her hubby, who responded, "You tell em Mrs Brand! In Britain we're currently dismantling the scum media so I'm not tuned in to their brain-farting."
The pair, who recently squeezed in some together-time in New York (left) in between Katy's tour and Russell's "Rock of Ages" filming in Miami, have been dogged by breakup whispers since before they tied the knot in October.
They've previously denied reports claiming they were undergoing counseling and considering taking a connubial time-out. In April, Katy filed suit against Australia's NW magazine for insinuating that she'd two-timed Russell.
