Katy Perry and Russell Brand "Just Too Different," Friends Say

by at . Comments

Katy Perry's divorce from Russell Brand wasn't due to a particular event or issue. The pair simply got married too fast and are too different, sources say.

They were infatuated with each other when they wed in October 2010, but had only been together about a year at that point, and things went south fast.

People close to the couple say Katy and Russell were head over heels for each other, fascinated to be with a great person who was an extreme opposite.

The problems came when the honeymoon phase wore off.

After they got married, they fought constantly, often in front of people at clubs and shows. They're both stubborn and strong-willed, making things worse.

Their busy schedules didn't help, as they never spent long periods of time with each other. In the end, despite their attraction, they were "just too different."

Brand, who filed for divorce Friday, is more of a homebody than Katy, 27, who loves going out partying. Russell, 36, has been sober for years and didn't enjoy the scene.

He would often voice his desire to stay in or leave places early, asking her to come with him, which would trigger arguments. So it went. Not a long-term match.

At the end of the day, neither hates the other, there's no bad blood, and not even a hint of impropriety on either part. Just a mutual parting of ways.

Sad, but something a lot of people, famous or not, can relate to.

>Hi, Erin,I live in Pearland and the trunk line that brings my my ineerntt was snapped into during Ike. I just got my ineerntt back on Sunday! Since I wasn't sure you were still having the class, I didn't go (didn't want to waste gas). Now I'm kicking myself!! I should have tracked down someone who had service. (Our library has been down as well.) Anyway, I would absolutely love to attend a class if you ever decide to have another one. I am looking forward to the Power Point. I am stumped about how to find multiple coupons!Have a terrific day!

Sounds as if they are parting as friends... with as little drama as possible, given they are both in the public eye. That's how most people would prefer to "move on", I'm sure. Good for them... stopping it now... before babies become involved!

This young woman new her husband is was a recover addict. In a relationship you should assure you mate is out of harms way. By her arguing with him let's him no she doesn't care. A persons SOBRIETY comes first no matter what.. So I feel he is doing the right thing to keep himself healthy and alive. And love has nothing to do with that if your person is to wrapped up in her own nonsense that she can't see her HUSBAND comes first.... Obvious she has no shame.....

Hollywood and marriage, why even bother...

Both talents in their own right, and I wish them both well as they live now as friends, and not spouses.

So sad! As different as they were I loved them together. I have to say they both knew who they were marrying, though. But, in the end at least it is amicable & no drama like the past divorces lately. Sad, too. I always hoped they'd make it...Katy deserves to be able to have fun (married or not) because she has such a busy life, but Russell was opposite ya know, being sober and more relaxed because of his past. There's nothing wrong with either one of them: they just need to be with people more like themselves. I wish them both luck
