Russell Brand has filed for divorce from his wife, Katy Perry. After just one year of marriage, the two have decided to call it quits. There has been plenty of speculation surrounding their relationship and after a “big” fight before Christmas that caused Perry to go to Hawaii alone, people began believing that it was the end of the road for Katy and Russell.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” Brand told PEOPLE Magazine.
The British actor met his singer wife at the VMA’s in 2009. They were married in 2010 in India, in a very private ceremony. They have been constantly scrutinized by the media, many assuming that their marriage just wouldn’t work out… alas the media was correct.
Brand and Perry both talked about starting a family and how “in tact” their marriage was, but evidently things were different behind closed doors.
