After 14 months of marriage, Katy Perry and Russell Brand are getting a divorce.
According to TMZ, Brand has filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The Associated Press has confirmed that the couple is splitting, with Brand announcing in a statement, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Perry and Brand started dating in late 2009. The couple married on Oct. 23, 2010 in India.
Rumors of a possible split were flying over the Christmas weekend after the couple allegedly spent the holiday apart, and were both photographed without their wedding rings. Brand and Perry do not have any children.
