The relationship of singer Katy Perry “California Girls,” “Firework” and British comedian Russell Brand has reportedly hit the dust.
Brand is best known as the acerbic comedian for his zany roles in “Get Him to the Greek” and a remake of “Arthur.” Brand filed divorce papers on Perry in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple was married in October 2010 in India.
Perry’s hit “California Girls” featured rapper Snoop Dogg and the popular song shot into the top ten.
Rumors started swirling that the couple’s marriage was in trouble when Perry spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii with friends, while a gloomy Brand was seen strolling around the streets of London.
Neither Perry nor Brand was spotted wearing their wedding rings.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage,” Brand said, according to AP wires. “I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
