Russell Brand and Katy Perry rumors of divorce sadly come true. On Friday news was released that the superstar couple are ending their short marriage of just over a year. Speculations came some time ago that Brand and Perry might be headed for divorce. Over the Christmas holiday, the British actor was in his native England while Katy was wearing a tiny bikini splashing in the blue waves of the Hawaiian beach.
An insider told Us Weekly magazine earlier this week that Russell Brand didn’t genuinely respect Katy Perry or her family’s Chrisitian beliefs. They often argued and had heated disagreements, the source said.
Things seemed alright for Brand and Perry after an LA concert at the Staples Center when they went to get tattoos together. E! News reported Wednesday that the last time they saw the pair together was December 3rd.
Brand issued this statement Friday:
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Russell Brand and Katy Perry’s divorce could very well center on the two of them spending so much time apart, but if their core values didn’t match, that may have been what split them up. The divorce papers are citing “irreconcilable differences.”
