Russell Brand, Katy Perry end marriage

After a little more than a year of matrimony, Russell Brand and Katy Perry are splitting up.

Brand, 36, tells 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 Brit comedian and actor filed for divorce from his pop star wife on December 30 in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.

The news comes just a day after Brand was spotted not wearing his wedding ring, and Katy was seen without hers while in Hawaii over the Christmas holiday.

The couple have steadfastly denied having problems in their relationship, with both of them shutting down rumors of a trial separation over the summer.

In late November, Katy, 27, made light of the gossip that she and her husband were headed for divorce. "First I'm pregnant, then I'm divorced. What am I, 'All My Children?!'" she joked via Twitter.

This week, however, the rumors escalated, with a source telling E! News on Wednesday that the couple was indeed having trouble and that they'd been spending time apart.

The couple wed in India in October, 2010.

    Why didn't they choose to live together for a few years and if all was going well, THEN decide to get married?

    Live together and if it turns ou that the relationship won't make it, go your seperate ways - no galimony, no palimony, no animosity. Just say goodbye and end it.

    My take (as if it matters) is that this couple intersected at a time in their lives that each was on a different path. There has been regular news that Russell has been moving away from "partying" while Katy is only in her early 20's and has been enjoying her fame with parties and out-on-the-town events with her friends. Good for Russell and Katy, life is to short to not live it in a way that is best for you.

    Just once, I'd like to hear one of the two of a celebrity couple say: "We're ending our marriage. We absolutely hate each other now, and will not remain friends. Thank goodness we didn't have any children. Wow, we were so immature to get married like that."

    The marriage is not yet ended. He filed for divorce, but a judge has to grant it. They are just separated. Would not be surprised to read in the near future that they've reconciled.

    Brand is a reformed drug addict and drinker. He is a homebody who wants to start a family. Katy is young and has a rising star and likes to party. It's understandable that they would part after a while, despite it appearing that they actually do love one another. He is actually the calmer of the two.

    His career is over, hers has exploded. So the powers that be told her "cut your losses girl". Tune in to see her next involved with lead singer of Foster the People, or Bruno Mars, or maybe even one of the actor Ryans. That will last for about 1 1/2 years. She's a climber. I am sure that Brand was forced to have a vasectomy before they were "married"- she had no time to deal with any of that. Good luck to them both, although he'll need it more.

    Big surprise. Neither of these 2 have any real talent. Katy Perry is just a mediocre singer who made it big because of some phony act like Lady Gaga. Russell Brand is a profane, crude, no-talent freak show who thinks he's a comedian. I will never understand why these Hollywood types marry anyway. They are so self-centered, they have no clue what commitment or marriage really means. It's no surprise that these throw-away relationships don't last. You look at Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman....they don't seek the spotlight or crave publicity or demand crazy service when they are in public. They behave like regular people and have been married for 25 years. Idiots like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry would do well to seek out the advice of someone like Devito and Perlman before putting a ring on their finger.

    They were an odd couple but I was really rooting for them and hoping that love would lead them and find a way. Relationships are like gardens, they need much tending. This may sound strange but I was wondering about their chances right away because they are very incompatible astrologically speaking. She's a Scorpio, he's a Gemini, that is not a match made in heaven. I have been able to predict, with alarming accuracy, which marriages will last and which ones won't on an astrological basis alone.

    OK kids, let me weigh in why this marriage failed. Soon after saying "I do", she embarked on her world wide tour. They were not together as a couple. She is 10 years younger, in a different place than Brand, and into partying. She is not ready for kids, as her career is on fire. He is ready for a woman to be by his side, sober, no booze cause he can't have any. He is ready for kids. Hence the "irreconcilable differences". Personally, I find Brand to be highly entertaining. I believed he truly loved her. I hope he finds what he deserves.

    Marriage is like a bottle of ketchup. It takes a lot of work to get anything out of it.

    If you aren't ready, if there are ANY, and I do mean AAAANNNYYY doubts before the wedding, then this is not your time to be saying "I am ready for a lifelong commitment".

    Then again, Hollywood thinks of a marriage certificate as something that you can just easily crumple and throw in the trashcan.

    Many marriages fail because the people in them have no grounding.

    No support when they are weak and from the start they choose partners who have poor priorities. Meaning faith and education are not at the top of their list. Se*xual attraction, money making, and Partying with friends is at the top of their list of priorities.

    A life that follows those ideals is shallow lived at best. Few people have the strength and depth to keep it together living that way. Most fail, get old, and wither away alone in a nursing home with no children or grandchildren to check in on them when they fall and can't get up. Reality folks.

    this is a modern problem many christian girls face today. most churches are seeker friendly, meaning they will entertain and leave out harsh verses to fill the pews but it does not work. people eventually leave when the juggling and tickling their fancy stops. the harsh truth is that being a christian in today's climate demands a real faith, a real zeal for Jesus. when the Bible says "do not be unequally yoked with a unbeliever" and "she can marry though only in the Lord" God knows that once the party stops then real issues come to the conversation.

    Im not saying Katy was a angel or maybe she was not even a Christian...only thinking she was like many today...self deceived. im not to judge maybe she was in a time of weakness (fame and money do that to a person) but there is a spiritual world that we can not see. we hear weird stuff people do and some of it is demonic. what im trying to say is a person may smile but really be a jerk, or worse.

    when i read she was brought up in a pastors home. then seeing her running around wtih brand to india to try other religions and visit gurus or whatever ...right there i knew she was in trouble. like i said the devil can work through people that look nice. look at the news , murder for example "oh he was the nicest guy" we hear that all the time. the devil wants to take everyone down to hell with him and he succeeds because many laugh at the Bible. look at the reports of girls having seizures due to watching twilight- do you really think its not demonic? it is.

    as a christian i sadly watched Katy go down the sewer hole with songs that where anti Christian and God is patient for only so long. He is love but if we slap Him in the face over and over He lets us go into our sin, and when are fully in a sinful lifestyle it never turns out good. hopefully she will humble herself and come to Jesus and then she will be restored.

      Ah, there it is, the centuries old "christian" habit of blaming and defaming the woman. Dave, you need to educate yourself about the origins of the bible, which original books were completely deleted and why, how much the words have been changed over the years for political or other gains, etc, etc. Do some research about how the major stories in the bible actually appeared in other religions centuries earlier in substantially similar detaill. It can be a bit shocking at first. It does not mean that there is no God, but it does mean that man (not God or the Holy Spirit) has put a lot of his own ideas into the bible and religous teachings. Then take that knowledge, clear out all the stuff added and changed by people over the years, and re-examine your views on the world, faith, marriage - all of it.

Kind of reminds me of the pirate on the Captain Morgan commericals. On another note..I don't know what she ever saw in him. He is not even funny.

    I was sad to read this. We saw Russell in concert earlier this year and it was evident just how much he loves his wife – he talked about her all night. While he may have been a bad boy in the past, he is a funny and down-to-earth guy and I am very sad for both of them – they really seemed to have a great relationship. Problem is that they didn't have enough time together – a common pitfall for celebrities, but a shame that they couldn't spend more time working on their relationship. Celebrities in general seem to give up on marriages too quickly – a good marriage takes time and work! Best wishes to both of them.

      Yes, he has had all those problems and now look at him, hasn't he done amazingly well. It's a far cry from working in a pub part-time in Chalk Farm, London. He is a really nice bloke and I'm sorry this didn't work out.

      I'm surprised that Brittany's made it this far without choking on her own hand.

      You forgot to mention that Brand was also fired from the BBC, is considered by most Brits to be an idiot, had no prospects of work in the UK, so he came here where he was welcomed with TV and movies work. How bad can life be when the USA welcomes rejects, just like Piers Morgan another reject from the UK.

      I don't understand why Brittneys getting hounded because her comment is bang on & they'd probably still be together if he wasn't such a trainwreck.

      Brand bad mouthed a former "fling" on a TV show, taunting her famous father regarding their escapade and what he did to his daughter. Any woman or man whou would even consider giving Brand so much of as a whiff of cooooch, much less marry him needs to promptly get a pyschological examination. Stat.

      Brittany summed it up perfectly. He is hard to look at. Hard to listen to (not funny). And he is a certifiable train wreck. Wake-up Katy, and please do a major boyfriend upgrade this time!

      @Huh-Wah?: Yeah, we all know that. What made it so stupid in their case is that neither one of them is a hindu or east indian. It was just a "look how non-mainstream and therefore cool we are". They're both idiots.

      The things Brittany stated are true. He wrote a book and if any of you bothered to buy it and read would know what she says about him is true. Doesn't mean she is an idiot because she like Russell Brand. He had a Hindu wedding because he studies their culture and religion. Which, by the way, is not a crime because he is not Indian. People convert to Christianity all the time and no one calls them stupid if they are not white. Brand is the one who filed for divorce. Despite all his issues he has been sober and has changed his life. She is the one who still likes to party and I bet he is getting rid of her because she is not on the same level as he is. If it were his fault, she would be the one filling for divorce.

      I agree, I liked them as a couple and thought they had a chance. At this point in time, people who want the spotlight should just consider stardom, or home and family. It's become obvious today you can't do both.

      It is no surprise this marriage is over, they were in love with the celibrity and excitement of their lives. They had no clue about each other. I wish these young couples would wed simply, ie, them, officiant, witnesses. Spend their millions on the many who need it.

      This is a reply to Jill.I dont agree with you stating that they should give their millions to people that need it. They both make money and they have their charities where they donate the portion of their money but if they have the money to spend on their wedding then let it be. Who are we to tell them how to spend their money.
