It was long speculated and now it’s confirmed, Russell Brand and Katy Perry are headed for divorce. The comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry on Friday (December 30) in Los Angeles.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage,” he said in a statement to PEOPLE. “I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
The Superior Court filing, which lists Perry by her given name of Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, does not list a date of separation.
The pair have been spotted without their wedding rings in recent days amid reports they spent the holidays apart, with Perry in Hawaii and Brand in the U.K.
The couple married a little over a year ago in India.
