Katy Perry has reacted angrily to claims that her marriage to Russell Brand is in trouble.
Tabloid reports over the weekend said the couple, who have rarely been seen together recently, were considering a trial separation to try and save their marriage.
But Perry denied the reports in a message on Twitter.
She said: "Just cause we don't flaunt our relationship doesn't mean there's something wrong w/it. Privacy is our luxury. #tabloidsrtrash #gossipisgross, (sic).”
Brand then backed up his wife, referencing the ongoing phone hacking scandal surrounding the British media.
“You tell em Mrs Brand! In Britain we're currently dismantling the scum media so I'm not tuned in to their brain-farting,” he wrote.
