LOS ANGELES (AP) — Russell Brand and Katy Perry are getting a divorce.
The 36-year-old comedian said Friday: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
Brand and the pop singer married in October 2010.
No I saw the announcement, I was just commenting on how obvious it was that they were spending xmas apart...
She seems more like a ditz than a brat. Russell always struck me as being very witty and on his toes, so maybe they're personalities just clashed and sex wasn't the glue (lube?) that could keep their relationship together.
It's kind of sad. At least there are no babies involved and it seems like they were genuinely in love.
^ Or in love with each other's profiles or something. I bet a lot of dirt will come out now.
I kinda meant that he needed to clean up his image and she needed to blast the goody two-shoes image. But who knows what was really going on?
I'm with Bitter, I feel like it's quite sad.
I smile because I have no idea what's going on
Supposedly they had a big fight over how he didn't respect her parent's Christian beliefs (her folks are both pastors).
I know she's not a crazy fundie Christian anymore (she started out as a Christian singer), but she claims to still be a Christian and I thought he was an avowed atheist. I just could never see him settling down for the long haul with anyone who was religious, used to be religious or is surrounded by a super-religious family. And I think her fault was in marrying Russell Brand if religion was going to be important to her at all, even just for the sake of her parents. She tried to call him her "man of God" and shit like that, and it's just...no. Don't try and make over your spouse into something he or she is not.

^ You'd think that the religion discussion would come up before they got married.... no?
Or while they were making their wedding plans (since it usually involves making vows to each other in a place of worship)?
Well, christian gospel records don't really sell as many CDs as pop music does... So I guess her ambition & need to be famous won over her commitment to her gospel music.
I think that Rollo is right that she needed to dispel her goody two shoes image (despite how many times she's been photographed in her underwear *rolls eyes*) and he wanted to break into the US. Whatever they say I think that contributed.
Didn't they get married really quickly because she "made him wait" for sex?
* I know my statement about record sales is going to bite me in the ass. Be gentle with me!
Someone needs to award my drunk ass with a degree from the Dr. Phil school for that awesome insight!
Oh, thank GOD they're separating. Russ' look went from 'designer rockstar grunge', to a cast member of The Real L Word, thanks to Katy's remodelling/make-over.
He's too intelligent for her anyway.
