Russell Brand, Katy Perry to divorce

2011-12-31 09:07
Los Angeles - Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry.

The Arthur star - who married the Firework singer in India in October 2010 - lodged papers in Los Angeles citing "irreconcilable differences" but has vowed that the pair will remain friends.

According to gossip website TMZ, Russell said: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

Russell, 36, and Katy had fuelled speculation all was not well with their union after spending Christmas 11000 km apart with Katy in Hawaii, while her husband was in Cornwall, South West England.

'Massive fight'

The couple reportedly had a "massive fight" over the festive season and Russell was spotted shopping in London on Thursday with his diamond wedding ring noticeably absent.

The pair are believed to have originally planned to spend the holidays with the comedian's mother Barbara in London before they became involved in a furious argument, and Katy decided to jet off to Hawaii with friends.

A source recently explained: "They had a massive fight. She was like, 'Fuck you. I'm going to do my own thing,' and Russell said, 'Fine, fuck you too!'

"Things are not good. The fighting is getting worse." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
