It appears that the viral videos of singer Katy Perry sunbathing without her wedding rings really did signify impending doom for her marriage to actor Russell Brand. The British comic actor has filed for divorce, citing the usual reason of irreconcilable differences.
Brand said in a statement (via the AP), “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage…I’ll always adore her, and I know we’ll remain friends.”
TMZ claims the filing may have caught Perry by surprise.
The couple, who were married in India in October of 2010 just a year after they met, were rumored to have a “massive fight” just before Christmas.
A source told about the fight to Us Weekly. “She was like, ‘[Bleep] you. I’m going to do my own thing,’ Russell replied, ‘Fine, [bleep] you, too.’”
Their holiday was spent 7,000 miles apart, with her frolicking in a bikini in Hawaii while he strolled around London on his own.
The pair has repeatedly denied rumors of trouble in paradise. A few weeks ago, Brand told Ellen DeGeneres, “I am really happily married…I’m married to Katy. Perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge.”
A source told Us Weekly that the problems may have stemmed from the fact that “Katy doesn’t think Russell respects her parents’ Christian beliefs or her friends.”
Another source spoke about Brand to Hollywood Life: “He may be funny on interview shows, but in real life he is not this happy-go-lucky guy, the kind of guy Katy thought she married. He is just too depressed and negative!”
