The comedian attacks the chat show host for bringing up the subject during the 'Firework' singers appearance last week.
Russell Brand reacted angrily during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show this week when the chat show host brought up the subject of his marriage to Katy Perry.
The 'I Kissed A Girl' star was a guest on the show last week, and the star of new film Rock Of Ages was not happy with Graham's response that the subject naturally came up.
"It did not come up, mate. You brought it up," Russell said.
He then turned to fellow guests Paloma Faith and Emily Blunt and stated: ''He upped the stakes and stabbed me in the back.''
Russell also criticised the host for making his mum cry, after he noticed her teary eyed in the audience.
"My mum is here. She got upset earlier when you dragged up my marriage. I saw her cry," he added.
He continued: ''That's reality because it's real people, Graham, that's my real mum. That's why I was a little bit embarrassed when I saw my mum crying. I came here to promote a film and you made my mum cry. I don't see you as that sort of person, Graham.''
Russell then went on to admit he would have been fine with the line of questioning had Graham mentioned to him before the show that he would be bringing up the subject.

"What I would have done mate is come up to me before the show and gone 'Eh, listen. It's a bit odd that your ex-missus was on last week. I might mention it. Is that OK?' And I would have gone 'Of course it is', he added. ''But in all of the chatting and the research, no-one mentioned it.''
Graham retorted: ''If I had not asked anything it would have been weird because Katy was on the show last week. That's the only reason."
Certain scenes from the confrontation were cut out of the final edit of the show which aired on the BBC last night (15th June).
Katy recently spoke to Ellen DeGeneres on the subject of her marriage breakdown and explained that her upcoming movie Part Of Me will "tastefully" reveal all her divorce.
The couple called time on their 14 month marriage at the end of 2011.
Katy Perry's new movie will hit cinema screens on 5th July and her new music video for latest single 'Wide Awake' will premiere on 19th June.
