In a statement to People today (December 30th), Russell Brand confirmed that he and Katy Perry were to divorce after 14 months as a married couple. “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage,” read the announcement. “I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” Perry and Brand married in October 2010 after first meeting in 2009.
Brand and Perry got into a monstrous fight right before Christmas because they couldn’t decided where to spend the holidays. A source tells Us Weekly that Perry initially planned to fly family over to London via private jet, but then changed her mind. “She was like, ‘F–k you. I’m going to do my own thing.’ Brand turned around and said, ‘Fine, f–k you too.’” She went to Hawaii while Brand vacationed in Cornwall. Both were seen many times over the past few days without their wedding bands.
