Comedian Russell Brand filed for divorce from wife of little over a year Katy Perry.
The documents that were filed in Los Angeles stated that the divorce was being sought due to irreconcilable differences between the couple.
For weeks now, there have been rumors about their marriage being on the rocks. The speculation reached fever pitch when the Brit funnyman and I Kissed a Girl singer did not spend the holidays together – Perry vacationed in Hawaii while Brand was in London, and they were both photographed without their wedding rings.
Brand released a statement saying that he was sad that he and Perry were parting ways, but that they would always be friends.
The pair tied the knot on October 2010 in India.
