Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
After months of speculation about the marital status of Russell Brand and Kerry Perry, it’s been reported that Russell Brand has filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
In a statement to CNN, Russell Brand offered the following: “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Unforunately, Brand’s announcement comes after the rumour mill began churning out gossip, with news that Katy Perry and Russell Brand had actually spent the holidays apart after having a fight. The two were also seen without their wedding bands, as well as in two different locations: Katy Perry spent Christmas in Hawaii, while Russell Brand camped out in native England.
However, TMZ reports that Brand’s filing may come as a shock to the Katy Perry: the outlet has noted that Russell Brand’s court documents request that each party pay their own legal fees, and that rights to their “community propery assets” are TBD.
What that means? There may be no prenup.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married just 14 months ago, but throughout the year, the duo’s relationship came under the spotlight once details of a less-than-happy marriage began to surface. Here’s hoping the two have a much better 2012.
