The Internet may be a "wicked little liar," to use Russell Brand's words, a great deal of the time. But apparently not in this sad case. He's divorcing Katy Perry.

Just 24 hours after Russell was spotted sans wedding ring in London, with Katy 7,000 miles away with friends in Hawaii, the actor filed the papers this afternoon.

Brand personally confirmed the news, saying in a statement: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

Brand cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split in the official divorce documents, filed in Los Angeles Friday. The couple married October 23, 2010.

The documents list "community property assets," which may indicate a lack of prenup, or one that does not account for all their earnings and other assets.

The news is surprising and yet not, given recent reports that the couple had been having problems and spending time apart, possibly following a massive fight.

He does not list a date the couple separated, but TMZ reports that Russell Brand may have blindsided Katy Perry by filing the divorce petition. Stay tuned.

In sad news today, Sinead O'Connor and Barry Herridge are getting divorced.

If it seems like they just got married, it's because they did. On December 9!

It was a great 18-day run for the couple. To put that in perspective, Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries lasted four times longer than these two.

Why the change of heart, Sinead? The singer explained on her website:

Sinead O'Connor, Husband

"Dear friends, I had for reasons u (sic) will all understand, wished to keep this private but have been told today it is to be leaked in the next few days despite my best efforts ... So I must now leak it myself so as the record is straight."

"Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband's life. And also by a bit of a wild ride I took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me (sic) wedding night as I don't drink."

"My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected (sic) by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage."

"It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear... A woman wants to be a joy to her husband."

"So... U (sic) love someone? Set them free."

Words to live by, people. Words to live by.

After years as a registered Republican, blowhard Donald Trump is breaking ranks with the party to become an unaffiliated, independent voter in New York State.

Trump made the change late last week, a move prompted by his stated interest in getting as much publicity as possible mounting a third-party presidential run.

"Mr. Trump has said for almost a year that if he is not satisfied with the Republican candidate, he may run as an independent," spokesman Michael Cohen said.

"This change in party affiliation certainly preserves his right to do so," he added, hilariously, but only "after the finale of The Apprentice in May."

Don Trump

Trump's Fox News rants have become a great sideshow this year.

Asked if any developments in the GOP race, or nearly all the candidates eschewing his big debate prompted Trump to make the change, Cohen insisted no.

Cohen did say Trump is "very disappointed" with how the Republican Party has handled the payroll tax extension, handing President Obama a political victory.

Trump has said he plans to endorse one of the Republicans running, and insists that is still his primary objective. However, he is no longer a Republican.

He will still be able to vote in the New York State GOP presidential primary in April, and will do so. It's just unclear right now who he'll be supporting.

While Kobe and Vanessa Bryant's divorce dominated the celebrity athlete breakup rumor mill, NFL Hall of Fame member Deion Sanders and his wife also split up this week.

His was nickname "Prime Time" for his showmanship as well as his immense talent ... though he may end up wishing he wasn't living quite so large now that he and soon-to-be-ex wife Pilar Sanders are divorcing. Why, you ask?

A prevision of his prenup? The bigger home Deion inhabits, the bigger home he has to buy Pilar. Seriously. Their agreement states that if they split, he would buy Pilar a house that is equal to half the value of whatever their current home is.

Their current Texas home's listing price? $21 million.

Pilar Sanders has been house hunting since Thanksgiving. The couple has three children together, Shilo, Shedeur and Shelomi, and has been married 10 years.

The 44-year-old Sanders played in the NFL from 1989-2005 and also played Major League Baseball for a few years. He was previously married to Carolyn Chambers, with whom he shares two children, Deion Jr. and Deiondra.

Yes, Deion and Deiondra.

Actress Debra Messing and her husband, writer-producer Daniel Zelman, have separated after more than a decade of marriage, according to news reports.

People first reported that the couple - parents to a 7-year-old son, Roman - separated privately earlier this year. The news was shared publicly this week.

Messing, 43, and Zelman, 44, met when both were pursuing graduate degrees in acting at NYU during the early 1990s. They married in September 2000.

“It’s very amicable,” the source explains of the two.

That's good at least. Here's wishing both the best.

Chaz Bono and his Jennifer Elia, his fiancee, have broken up.

The couple have called off their engagement and "are no longer a couple," a rep for Bono confirms. Howard Bragman, Chaz's publicist, said the following:

"Chaz Bono and Jennifer Ella leave this relationship mutually and with great love, respect and affection toward one another. No further amplification will be forthcoming and they ask that you respect their privacy at this time."

Chaz Bono and Jennifer Ella

Jennifer Ella and Chaz Bono got engaged earlier this year, but were a couple since 1999, long before he underwent gender reassignment surgery to become a man.

Chaz, who enjoyed a nice run on Dancing With the Stars this fall despite a firestorm of controversy, popped the question on his reality show Being Chaz.

We wish both of them the best in this difficult, emotional time.

Vanessa Bryant, the wife of NBA star Kobe Bryant, filed for divorce Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences." They were married 10 and a half years.

Sources say that Vanessa decided to end the marriage because she thinks the Los Angeles Lakers guard has been unfaithful ... and not for the first time.

As one source close to Vanessa put it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough."

"This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."

Vanessa Bryant famously stuck by Kobe after he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman in 2003 (he was acquitted of all charges).

Apparently the cheating didn't end there, though, and while Kobe "desperately" wants to win her back and will do "whatever it takes" ... good luck.

Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their two daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5, but is asking that the basketball superstar get visitation rights

There is no prenup, so 29-year-old Vanessa is entitled to half the empire built over the last decade by NBA MVP and five-time champion Kobe, 33.

She's also requesting spousal support, which Kobe will pay. The Bryants released a joint statement saying they have "resolved all issues" privately.

No word on whether Kobe plans on changing his uniform number yet again or if Vanessa plans on joining the new season of VH1's Basketball Wives.

SIDE NOTE: That $4 million ring Kobe gave Vanessa after the 2003 scandal - later referred to as "the Kobe special" by Tiger Woods - all hers. Gift, babe.

We have an update on the ugly Rodney Atkins situation.

As previously reported, the country singer was arrested last month on a charge of domestic violence that included trying to smother his wife with a pillow, an allegation Atkins denies. Now, TMZ has obtained the divorce documents between Rodney and Tammy Atkins and they at least prove the couple can agree on something.

Both sides acknowledge they are "unable to live together successfully as husband and wife," while each says the other is "guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper."

Tammy is asking for sole custody of the pair's 10-year old son (who she also says witnessed his dad's attack), along with alimony and child support payments.

The judge has agreed on a restraining order for the time being, barring Rodney and Tammy from "harassing, threatening, assaulting or abusing the other party." That seems like a start.

Tyra Banks is now a single, self-serving woman.

According to The New York Post, the America's Next Top Model host has split with Brooklyn businessman John Utendahl after three years of dating - and subsequently embarked on a quest to find herself and her faithful roots in Bali.

“Tyra has gone away with a female friend and has been island-hopping, visiting Bali and taking a spiritual retreat," a source tells the newspaper.

Have no fear, though fans. We're sure Banks will return and make everything about herself again in no time.
