Russell Brand Files for Divorce from Katy Perry
Russell Brand and Katy Perry officially join the other celebrity marriages that didn’t last in Hollywood. After 14 months of being
happily married, Russell Brand files for divorce from the “Teenage Dream” singer Friday.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” Russell says in statement released to The Associated Press.
Rumors ran rampant over the holidays when the odd couple celebrated Christmas separately in London and Hawaii respectively, and were both photographed without wedding rings.
It was just a mere two years ago when Russell proposed to Katy in India, and subsequently were married in a tiger reserve. Since that day, the two A-Listers appeared nothing but happy.
Russell told The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this month, “I am really happily married…. I’m married to Katy. Perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge. I’m still alive.”
Katy also had some kind words to say about their marriage when she appeared on Barbara Walters‘ ABC “Most Fascinating People of 2011” special earlier this month.
“I think that it’s lovely so far,” she said in response to Barbara’s question about her marriage with Russell.
Katy later in the interview comments about having children saying, “Yes of course, I think that is one of the biggest reasons why you do get married.”
