Russell Brand Files For Divorce
December 31, 2011 by staff
Russell Brand Files For Divorce, They cut it really close, but Russell Brand and Katy Perry managed to squeak onto our list of the most surprising celebrity splits of 2011. The kooky couple is divorcing after only 14 months of marriage.
Taking full advantage of the slow holiday news cycle, Brand, 36, told CNN in a statement, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
The British comedian filed for divorce from his pop star wife on Dec. 30 in Los Angeles, citing the ol’ chestnut “irreconcilable differences.”
Speculation that there may be trouble in the couple’s candy-coloured paradise reached a fever pitch earlier this week, when reports surfaced that the pair spent the holidays apart following a huge fight. Perry, 27, was photographed vacationing in Hawaii while Brand stayed in England, and both have been spotted in recent days without their wedding bands.
The divorce filing may have caught Perry by surprise, reports TMZ, who notes that Brand’s court documents request that each party pay their own legal fees and says the rights to their “community property assets” are TBD, suggesting there is no pre-nup.
Earlier this year, they both denied reports of trouble in their marriage amid tabloid speculation of a trial separation over the summer.
Brand insisted they were fine earlier this month on The Ellen Degeneres Show, saying “I’m really happily married…I’m married to Katy perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge. And I’m still alive.” Meanwhile Perry tweeted last month, “First I’m pregnant, then I’m divorced. What am I, ‘All My Children?!’”
