Katy Perry & Russell Brand to Divorce and Everyone Saw It Coming


katy perry & russell brandAs the old saying goes: Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. TMZ reports that Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry, citing irreconcilable differences. Everyone saw this coming a mile away -- the separate Christmases, the lack of wedding bands, the cheating rumors -- I don't think anyone is necessarily surprised that the comedian and the pop star called it quits. The only thing that is surprising about their split is that apparently, Katy might have been blindsided by it all. The legal documents TMZ obtained led them to believe that the "Firework" singer may not have known about her impending divorce.

I don't know, I find that hard to believe. I'm sure Katy knew what was going down. I'm just happy it's all out in the open now. No more speculation -- Katy and Russell are done. Court docs don't lie.

I'm kind of glad they didn't fuddy dud around the issue and go on pretending like they were super happy when really their marriage was falling apart. I know for a while they had to deny the rumors, but I'm glad to see that once the rings came off, the papers were filed, and the divorce was put in motion. No more guessing. It's just ... over.

It's a shame -- they seemed to be two dynamic people with a unique zeal for life. I love that they got married in India and I appreciate the fact that they kept their dating life private for a while, but I guess all that doesn't matter now. They're probably the last celebrity couple to break up in 2011, but there's still a day or two. Khloe, Lamar? Any announcements to make?

I'm sure each of them will move on and do great things and I'm especially looking forward to Katy's next album. I have a feeling it's going to be a little dark and moody.

Did you see the Katy Perry and Russell Brand divorce coming?

I guess I don't keep up on the celebrity gossip, I had no idea they were having troubles. How sad, I liked those two together!


Wow Ms. Mannering do you really think its funny to ask anyone (Khloe & Lamar) if they are getting divorce?  Like we say God don't like ugly and what you put out comes back 9 fold!

Please don't wish that on Khloe and Lamar. I actually like them.

I agree, I couldn't tell you which one Khloe was, but why wish divorce on someone?

On topic, a true bummer about KP and RB. Too bad, best wishes for their futures.

Bummer for them. 

I've always kind of watched them out of the corner of my eye. I mean, Russel Brand was an alcoholic and a drug addict and a philanderer for a loooong time, and then he met Katy Perry and was all of a sudden a changed man? Yeah, no, doesn't happen that way. Maybe sometimes it does, but most of the time it's only temporary. Change like that is a long-term process, not a flash-bang moment.

@LindsayMannering - What would you very from Khloe and Lamar divorcing? Why do you give a crap? You must have a crush on Lamar Odom. If that is the case, just realize that no celebrity is ever going to want you. You come off as rude and crazy.

Make it your New Year's resolution to act like a sane person.
