As reported a few days ago, it seemed as if Katy Perry and Russell Brand were taking a “break” from each other, that break was confirmed today as a permanent one.

Russell Brand filed for divorce on Friday December 30, 2011, citing irreconcilable differences,
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’l always adore her and I know we will remain friends.” Russell told PEOPLE.
The couple began their romance in 2009 and were married in October of 2010 in a regal ceremony in India, complete with elephants and jugglers.
The two were always like two kids in love, always smiling and playing around together and sweet talking to each other.
Perry called brand her ‘great man of god’ and they said that they had a spiritual and emotional connection that was hard to explain.
The two recently spent their Christmas holiday apart, Perry in Hawaii and Brand in England.
They reportedly had a huge fight and decided to vacation apart. They were both pictured without their wedding bands on and that sparked rumors of a split.
Brand appeared on the Ellen show last month to deny the rumors of them splitting.

“There are always rumors aren’t they. In the end you just have to not engage with internet technology. I have treated the whole internet as if it was a wicked little liar. Yes, I am happily married.”
Calls to Perry or Brands reps have not been returned.
We wish them well in their future.
