Rumors have been widespread that actor Russell Brand and singer-wife Katy Perry were having problems. The rumors became more intense when they both stepped out publicly over the holidays without their respective wedding rings.
But so far, they have maintained that they are still happily married–that is, until two days ago. Brand filed for divorce from Perry in Los Angeles, California, citing the very common reason–”irreconcilable differences.” They have been married for only over a year and they have no kids.
Russell Brand reportedly said in a recent statement, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” Perry, on the other hand, is yet to speak up on the divorce.
