Rumors of Katy Perry and Russell Brand getting a divorce have been officially put to rest. 36-year-old Brand has filed for divorce from 27-year-old Perry. TMZ reports that Brand cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for separation. The papers were filed in L.A.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” says Brand.
Media outlets circulated the possibilities of them splitting after the duo spent Christmas apart and neither was wearing their respective wedding rings. Katy has yet to respond on how Brand became “the one that got away.”
