The mystery of how famous lothario Russell Brand was finally tamed by Katy Perry has been uncovered - she made him wait for sex.
The fiery singer has revealed she turned down the British comedian - who she said was basically a 'professional prostitute' before he embraced monogamy - on the night they met.
She boldly told him 'You've met your match m***** f*****' as she threw a plastic water bottle at him at their first meeting.
Defiant: Katy Perry believes she won over Russell Brand because she didn't give him what he wanted on a platter
The pair hit it off instantly, Perry said in an interview with Esquire magazine, and went clubbing together that night.
But when Brand assumed he would be taking the songstress home, he was in for a surprise when she refused him.
'Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had when he was used to getting everything he wanted?' she told the magazine.

She demanded that he take her on a date, and the romance blossomed from there. A week later, the pair were holidaying in Thailand.
Posing for a series of raunchy photographs for the magazine, the 25-year-old said she has reformed the former sex addict, who according to rumours used to sleep with up to 80 women a month.
'He was a heroin addict and now he's not. He was addicted to all kinds of things and now he's not. And he basically used to be a professional prostitute and now he's not,' she said.
'So he's an extremist, which can be both good and bad.'
'I always needed someone stronger than me and I am, like, a f****** strong elephant of a woman.'
'I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can. When we have an argument he knows I'm not just gonna throw my hands up and say, 'okay, you win.'
'Let's get into it. Let's start debating. Let's wrestle, Russell.'

And if he wasn't already won over, she further enticed the football fan by donning a West Ham basque and pair of hot pants with 'Rusty' on the back.
Perry said she had got through to Brand's 'deep layer'.
'I always like hitting that deep spot, and I knew that West Ham was a deep spot for Russell,' she said.
Perry, who will wed the Get Him To The Greek star in a lavish October wedding, also revealed details of their engagement for the first time.
Brand got down on one knee in Jaipur, India, and had organised fireworks, roses, and even an elephant.
'Russell had a little turban on and we got into a horse and carriage which took us to this tent made out of tens of thousands of roses.
'Inside there was a stage show featuring dancers. Just before midnight, an elephant turned up. A painted elephant.'
'We rode to another part of the hotel and watched the fireworks.'
Perry said the pair were incredibly similar.
'We're both larger than life. We're kind of cartoony.'
Perry is currently celebrating her single California Gurls reaching the Number One spot, while Brand has been receiving good reviews for his latest acting role.
