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 love you katy! you're fans will support you through the rough times and the good. She's a lovely woman who I've met on several occasions and I know her faith family and fans will be there through this and the years to come. This was a growing experience for her and I don't condemn her having fun or partying because we've all done it. And she's young rich and popular if I was her id be the same way. don't judge her through the tabloid or rusty brand for that matter they were only human.

I think she is going to have alot of soul searching to do in the next ten years or so as she hopefully grows up and starts to see that life isn't one big party. When the drink and loud music can't do it any more and you realize you let the stuff that really matters go, traded it in for the temperary excitement it is very, harshly and stingingly depressive. Too many follow the philosophy,

Yeah, they are different. He's a gay man who wants biological children and she wanted a homosexual husband who wasn't demanding or jealous.

Katy should have respected Russell. He is a former drug addict and good for him to realize that he didn't need to be around the partying scene. She should have put her marriage FIRST instead of fame and partying. If Katy can't respect her husband and realize that he can't be around drugs and alcohol then perhaps he needs somebody better
