Russell Brand is said to be “seething with jealously” after his ex-wife Katy Perry was pictured at the Coachella Festival last month with Robert Ackroyd of Florence And The Machine.
This led Russell Brand, 36, to send Katy Perry, 27, a long email admitting that he “gave up” on their marriage too soon.
Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry in December and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split but now it appears being faced with the green-eyed monster has caused him to think things over.
It has been reported that Russell Brand sent the singer an emotional e-mail in which he has asked for a second chance and said ending their 14 month marriage was a “mistake”.

A source close to Russell Brand told Grazia magazine: “Word has it Russell was <<seething with jealousy>> when he saw pictures of her with Rob. He apparently feels he gave up on their relationship too easily.”
The source continued: “It’s fair to say that Russell only wishes Katy happiness but perhaps he should have realized just how special his wife was when he was married to her rather than five months later.”
When Russell Brand filed for divorce at the end of last year, it was reported that he did not agree with Katy Perry’s partying lifestyle and he told her to “tone it down”.
Added to the fact that Katy Perry was on a mammoth tour it seems their marriage ultimately paid the cost.
Although Katy Perry has moved on, Russell Brand was spotted with the main woman in his life – his beloved mother Barbara.
The comedian and his mum were spotted lunching in Primrose Hill, North London yesterday.
One day before, Katy Perry tweeted a line from Forrest Gump: “Dear God make me a bird, so I can fly far far far away from here.”
A new virus is threatening PCs via emails which infect PCs without the user having to open an attachment.
The user will not even be warned this is happening, the only message that appears is “loading”.
The email automatically downloads malicious software into your computer from elsewhere the moment a user clicks to open it.
The mails themselves are not infected and thus will not “set off’ many web-security defense packages.
Security experts say that the development is “particularly dangerous”.
“This sort of spam also affects cautious users which would never open an unknown attachment or link,” say security experts Eleven Research Team.
Previous generations of email-borne viruses and trojans required users to click on an attachment – often an office document such as a PDF.
The new emails – dubbed “drive-by emails” – have been detected “in the wild” by computer researchers Eleven Research Team.
“This drive-by spam automatically downloads malware when the e-mail is opened in the e-mail client,” says Eleven Research Team.
“Previous malware e-mails required the user to click on a link or open an attachment for the PC to be infected.
“The new generation of e-mail-borne malware consists of HTML e-mails which automatically downloads malware when the e-mail is opened.
“This is similar to so-called drive-by downloads which infect a PC by opening an infected website in the browser.”
The current wave of emails arrives with the title “Banking Security Update”.
To stay safe, Eleven Research Team advises switching all security settings in email software to maximum, and updating your browser to the latest version so it’s protected against malicious software.
Atos, one of the largest information technology companies in the world decided to abolish e-mails, because it says 90% of them are a waste of time.
Atos employs almost 80,000 people in 42 countries.
The company believes that too many of its employees waste hours dealing with irrelevant e-mails, so wants them phased out within 18 months.

Instead, Atos wants people to spend more time talking to each other – either on the phone or in person – and to use tightly controlled “real time” messaging interfaces.
Atos CEO, Thierry Breton, who is a former French finance minister, said the “zero e-mail” policy could be in place within 18 months.
“It is not right that some of our fellow employees spend hours in the evening dealing with their e-mails,” said the 56-year-old CEO.
Claiming that only 20 out of every 200 emails received by his staff every day turn out to be important, Thierry Breton said: “The e-mail is no longer the appropriate tool. It is time to think differently.
“The deluge of information will be one of the most important problems a company will have to face.”
Thierry Breton said the main problem was people switching to a “useless” email while they were carrying out a far more important task.
Allowing e-mails to stack up also means that staff has huge e-mail workloads to pile through when they get home.
Thierry Breton pointed to a recent study by the business watchdog ORSE, which reads: “Reading useless messages is terrible for concentration, as it takes 64 seconds to get back on the ball after doing so. Poorly controlled, the e-mail can become a devastating tool.”
Atos CEO suggested that a real time messaging interface as available on sites like Facebook would be far preferable to email, with staff also encouraged to talk to each other in person.
“Companies must prepare for the new wave of usage and behaviour,” Thierry Breton said, adding that he always preferred proper conversations.
“If people want to talk to me, they can come and visit me, call or send me a text message,” he said.
“Emails cannot replace the spoken word.”
