Yep, it's true.
The once upon a time sex addict is now a minister!
No, we are NOT joking!
Russell Brand went online and became ordained through America's Universal Life Church.
So now he can perform weddings, funerals, and church sermons!
Crazy to think about it, isn't it?
The performer has already put his newly given power to use by marrying a couple at one of his stand-up gigs — Mr. and Mrs. Will De Boor!
Russell has had a total turnaround since he met wife Katy Perry as her parents are super religious. He’s been reading a lot of theological texts, especially by the Maharishi, and he wanted to take it further. With the Universal Life Church anyone can get ordained online and Russell did it as a half-jokey, half-serious thing. When he talked about it at his gig, one couple stood up and said they wanted him to marry them. Unfortunately, the words he used during their service can’t be repeated as they were somewhat unorthodox. But it was all 100 percent legal.
Wooow. Who wouldn't thunkit?
