Looks like it’s time to remove those matching wedding tattoos, because actor Russell Brand has filed for divorce from singer Katy Perry according to TMZ.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage,” said Brand in a statement. “I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Brand reportedly filed for divorce in Los Angeles according to TMZ, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Rumors of an impending split were circulated just prior to Christmas when the former-couple allegedly had a “massive” fight according to Us Weekly. As a result, the two spent the holidays apart.
It was reported that the fight was caused by Brand taking issue with the Christian beliefs of Perry’s parents.
Brand was also spotted in London earlier this week without his wedding ring, which added more fuel to the fire.
The two first met on the set of Brand’s 2010 film Get Him to the Greek and married in October 2010.
There is no official word yet on whether they signed a prenup.
