Russell Brand pre-split shocker

Totally tasteless! A newly exposed video reveals Russell Brand jokingly removing his wedding ring in preparation for meeting a bunch of hot young sorority girls -- a full month before his split from Katy Perry.

In the video, filmed for porn website NudeVista to promote a week-long tour of U.S. universities, Brand explained that he expected his visits to be one long orgy.

The prenup Katy Perry should've had >>

"I am going to meet people from sororities and fraternities. I don't know what a sorority is except for what I have seen on NudeVista -- that they are sort of sex clubs for women," Brand, a self-proclaimed former sex addict, said on the clip.

"A week of revolution and, more importantly, I am going to learn first-hand about sororities."

Katy Perry breaks her silence: "I speak for myself" >>

Brand then removes his wedding ring on camera, saying, "I'm just going to place this somewhere very, very safe for the next week."

Watch Russell Brand take off his wedding ring:


Was this the straw that broke the camel's back? Granted Brand is a comedian and the bit was meant to be a joke, but many wives would see the move as a blatant mark of disrespect -- joke or no joke.

The video was released to the porn site in November. Russell Brand announced his divorce from Katy Perry on Dec. 30.
