Katy Perry and Russell Brand Divorcing

Russell Brand has reportedly filed for divorce from Katy Perry, confirming what we were all hoping was not true.

TMZ allegedly got their hands on the official divorce paperwork, filed in Los Angeles, which cites irreconcilable differences between the entertaining couple. The pair married in India just last year, on October 23, 2010. The news solidifies the couples’ rumored marital troubles and also explains why they spent Christmas apart; Katy was seen frolicking in the surf during the holidays — without her wedding ring or her husband in sight.

“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” Brand said in a statement, insinuating that it was a joint decision, though TMZ is speculating that Brand may have issued the paperwork without Katy’s knowledge.

Just this month, Brand appeared on ‘Ellen’ and promised audiences that he is “happily married,” saying, “I’m married to Katy. Perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge. I’m still alive.” So much for the sanctity of marriage, perhaps.

PopCrush is sad to learn the news of the death of another “happy” Hollywood marriage, and we sincerely hope this will be the last little piece of bad news that 2011 will bring! Best of luck to Katy and Russell, whatever happens.
