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.

I would agree that for someone like Katy Perry marriage at this point would be a kind of sacrifice. One that apparently she wasn't prepared to make at the end of the day. I think she's a good girl though and she probably really tried for awhile.


How about fuck these two idiots too. All you bleeding heart fucks saying, "marriage is sacrifice"! Marriage is easy if you are married to the one you love. The new "in thing" in Hollywood is divorce. Nothing but a publicity stunt. they're going to show up down in Costa Rica making a sextape with Heidi and Spencer soon. I'll get the lotion, you pop the popcorn!!!


I think she was too young to get married. Also, how does a marriage work between two big egos, I can't think of a way. In any marriage someone always makes sacrifices.. I love them both as entertainers, but it wasn't hard to see this divorce coming.


She also knew who she was marrying. Its a massive thing to be a recovering alcoholic and be sober for years.


yay katy deserves some1 way beter den russel she worth more than some1 dat dosnt love her forr who she is... btw russel isnt hot enough for her anyway lotz of LOVE jayjay mwah


how will her next marriage top the India one?


No big surprise in the Perry-Brand split; if a picture tells the story, there was always something believable and very-married missing, alas. Russell Brand is a huge, unique talent, who hasn't even begun to tap in to his full potential. And he's immensely dishy to boot. Russell Brand need never be lonely unless he wants to be solitary. Happy New Year!!


Screw both of them.


She's in her 20's. She works hard and there's nothing wrong with going out and having a good time every once in a while. He's a recovering addict, he's much older than her, and he's had more than his share of fun. He's also a big boy that can take care of himself. The idea that she should stay in every night or that she's a 'bad wife' for enjoying age-appropriate activities while working her butt off is preposterous. He knew who he was marrying. Who knows what their real issues were but I suspect that if she was really partying all the time we'd see lots of pap pics backing the claim. But we don't. I call bs


Why would Katy Perry even consider clubbing with a former drug addict? Very immature. He is an awesome talent and she is a run of the mill poptart.
