Amidst much speculation of trouble in paradise, Katy Perry and Russell Brand have officially filed for divorce this morning citing “irreconcilable differences.” According to insiders to the couple, one of Katy’s top concerns was that Russell did not respect her parent’s Christian beliefs or her friends. Russell released the following statement:
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Reports of their struggling marriage emerged when the two were spotted having separate holiday vacations (Russell in England and Katy in Hawaii), with each partner’s wedding ring MIA.
The couple was married for 14 months. Sad way to ring in the new year for these two!
