WATCH: Russell Brand on Ex-Wife Katy Perry: "I Still Love Her"

Russell Brand may have surprised Katy Perry by filing for divorce last December after only 14 months of marriage. But now he's admitting how much he still cares about his ex-wife.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres airing today, the British comic opens up to the chatty talk-show host about his split from the American pop star. In fact, Brand, 36, was rather sweet with praise for his former spouse, 27.

"I still love her as a human being," Brand said. "But, sometimes when you're in a relationship I suppose it doesn't work out, does it? But that doesn't mean I regret it or anything."

After announcing his intention to divorce, Brand not-so-quietly partied with various women, while the "Firework" singer cocooned a bit, cancelled performances and regrouped until she was ready to step out again. Since then, she has reportedly hooked up with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, whom she was spotted being quite affectionate with at the Coachella Festival.

"I was very happy to be married with her," Brand continued. "She's such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."
