Russell Brand has filed for divorce from American singer Katy Perry.
Russel Brand cites “irreconcilable differences.” The two were married Oct. 23, 2010 in India. They have no kids.
The divorce docs say there are “community property assets” — it’s a sign there might not be a prenup, or if there is one it doesn’t cover all of the earnings and other assets they accumulated.
The docs do not give a date the couple separated.
Russell has released a statement, claiming, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
Russell proposed to Katy in India on New Year’s Eve 2009.
The couple were having problems, evidenced by the fact that they spent Christmas apart and neither was wearing a wedding ring.
Although it’s not 100%, based on what we now know it appears Brand may have blindsided Perry by filing the divorce petition.
