    APNewsBreak: Russell Brand, Katy Perry to divorce

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Russell Brand is divorcing Katy Perry after 14 months of what appeared to be a storybook marriage.

    "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage," Brand said in a statement released to The Associated Press on Friday. "I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

    Brand, 36, offered no other details, but in papers filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the British comedian cited irreconcilable differences.

    He and the 27-year-old pop singer were married in October 2010 at a resort inside a tiger reserve in India, and their mutual affection had become a rather sweet feature of the Hollywood celebrity circuit.

    The couple announced their engagement in January 2010 after meeting at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where Brand hosted and she performed.

    The comedian, who once struggled with substance abuse and sex addiction, was effusive about his bride while promoting projects earlier this year, saying marrying Perry has "given me much more strength in what I do."

    "For a long while, what I do professionally was all that mattered to me really," he said in March. "Now I think, well, whatever I do, I'll just go back to her, and that's incredibly comforting."

    And so many young people model their lives on these "stars". How can they just throw away their marriage when it means sooooooo many people look up to them?

    I find it interesting that HE is the one who filed, usually its the other way around.

    I kinda liked them together. Katy is into the bad boys. I liked her with Travie McCoy too.

    i always thought that they were not a good match anyway so i'm not surprised that they're breaking up.

    I don't know why, but I never really think about the individuals who are getting the divorce. I always think about the family, relatives and friends that showed up to the wedding.

    All the money, all the pomp and circumstances, all the 'happy' emotions and well-wishing doled out, and it's all rendered meaningless in a matter of months.
