Here is what people are saying about the Katy Perry and Russell Brand divorce.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” Brand told PEOPLE Magazine.
The couple had often been described as being very much unlike each other, and although they always stated the marriage was solid, something came between them, quite possibly their different lifestyles. Once a heroin addict, Brand is now a teetotaler while Perry likes her parties and booze.
The British actor met his singer wife at the VMA’s in 2009 where Brand was hosting and Perry was performing. They were married in 2010 in India, in a very private ceremony. Apparently Brand has also angered Hindus because the couple went the extra mile to marry in a religious Indian ceremony. “If celebrities opt for a Hindu wedding, they should be prepared to adhere to the commitment, devotion, responsibility, sanctity and morals, which are attached to it,” said Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism.
Brand ticked the box for ‘Property rights to be determined,’ in the divorce document that he had filed, which also suggests the pair did not have a pre-nuptial agreement.
They reportedly have at least three properties together in California, New York and London.
