The criticism comes on the heels of reports that Perry's parents called her divorce a "gift from God." In a video posted on TMZ, Hudson called for any members of the press in the packed Ft. Collins, GA church to stand up.

Perry remained mum about her recent divorce filing until yesterday, when she tweeted, “Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, "close sources" or my family."

Her father seems to have gotten the message - a stand-up routine about the press was the only indirect reference he made to Katy.
