Katy Perry, Tim Tebow: Are Katy's Evangelical Parents Setting Her Up With the Christian NFL Star?
Russell Brand announced that he was divorcing Katy Perry only weeks ago, but it looks like Katy's parents already have a new man picked out for their daughter. The pop star's mom and pop are both Evangelical pastors who head up their own church, and rumor has it they're trying to set up Katy with the devoutly Christian football player Tim Tebow.
According to an OK! magazine source, Katy, 27, has mentioned how much she likes Tim, 24, on more than one occasion. "Katy's mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again. In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He's handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian."
Tebow is the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and has become a Christian poster child for NFL fans thanks to his "public displays of religion." He was born in the Philippines while his parents were on a Christian Baptist mission there, and his father is a Baptist pastor.
Following the news of Katy's split, the singer's parents spoke up about the matter before Katy did, announcing that the divorce was God's way of getting people to their church. It should come as no surprise therefore that Keith and Mary Hudson have reportedly gone as far as inviting Tim to speak at the church their daughter used to sing at in Huntington Beach, Calif. in the hopes of a run-in.
