LOS ANGELES (AP) -- British actor-comedian Russell Brand is
divorcing "California Gurls" songstress Katy Perry after 14 months of
what had appeared to be one of Hollywood's happier marriages.
"Sadly,
Katy and I are ending our marriage," Brand said in a statement to The
Associated Press on Friday. "I'll always adore her and I know we'll
remain friends."
Brand, 36, offered no other
details, but in papers filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, he
cited irreconcilable differences.
He and the
27-year-old pop singer were married in October 2010 at a resort inside a
tiger reserve in India, and their mutual affection had become a rather
sweet feature of the celebrity circuit.
The
couple announced their engagement in January 2010 after meeting at the
2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where Brand hosted and she performed.
The
comedian, who once struggled with substance abuse and sex addiction,
was effusive about his bride while promoting projects earlier this year,
saying marrying Perry has "given me much more strength in what I do."
"For
a long while, what I do professionally was all that mattered to me
really," he said in March. "Now I think, well, whatever I do, I'll just
go back to her, and that's incredibly comforting."
Perry
praised her husband backstage at the 2011 VMAs in August, where she won
three awards and he offered a tribute to Amy Winehouse.
"I'm
proud of him, whatever comes out of his mouth, and sometimes it's very
colorful, right?" Perry said of Brand. "That's why I married him,
because he's smart and I learn a lot."
Attorneys
for Perry, whose name is listed as Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson in the
divorce papers, did not respond Friday to calls seeking comment.
The
Internet had been abuzz recently with rumors about possible trouble for
the couple after they were seen during the holidays without their
wedding rings.
Perry's run of No. 1 singles
earned her the distinction of becoming MTV's first artist of the year
earlier this month. She hosted "Saturday Night Live" on Dec. 10 and gave
no indication any marital woes.
Brand's
recent film credits include "Arthur," "Hop" and "Get Him to the Greek."
He is among the ensemble starring alongside Tom Cruise in "Rock of
Ages," set for release next year.
Both Brand and Perry were absent Friday from Twitter, where they often shared kind words for each other.

It is a shame. I really thought they were meant for each other. She seemed to have tamed him.

I watched Arthur last night and Russell had a cameo role....bit of a loos cannon though Iris and I remember when they got married the concensus
appeared to be that it wouldn"t last.

It was a very whirlwind romance annaEsse , maybe because he was a celebrity ? I don"t know anything about Katy.
