Los Angeles - Russell Brand has reportedly sworn off marriage.

The 36-year-old Arthur star - who filed for divorce from Katy Perry in December after just 14-months of matrimony - is apparently so scarred by the experience that he has vowed never to wed again.

A source said: "Russ was devastated when things with Katy went wrong. We all worried he'd go off the rails again. He managed to pull himself together and he's fine now.

"He's had a chance to look back and assess everything and thinks marriage isn't for him. Russ was never too keen on it in the first place but loved Katy and thought it'd work."

'Not getting married again'
Since the split, Russell has been linked with Katy look-a-like Zooey Deschanel, and more recently 25-year-old Oriela Medellin Amieiro, who he is believed to have met at a yoga class.

But while the comedian may be open to romance with Oriela, that is as far as it goes.

Talking to the Daily Star, the source added: "He doesn't want to string her along, but he's dead set on not getting married again."

Meanwhile, Katy, 27, fuelled speculation that she too has moved on when she was spotted with a mystery man at Los Angeles' LAX Airport on Tuesday. However, the tall, dark stranger has since been indentified as her gay stylist Johnny Wujek.
