The Celeb Breakups of 2011! Plus: Katy Perry and Rusell Brand DivorceBy Danielle Corcione | January 2, 2012 | Entertainment
Celebrity breakups are inevitable, and we had our fair share in 2011. From rockers Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz and performers Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez to power couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, the year ended with┬á Katy Perry and Russell Brand calling it quits. Here’s the latest on the ex-pop couple.
Chart-topping pop singer Katy Perry and English actor Russell Brand announced this previous Friday that their happy-go-lucky 14-month marriage has ended, after the couple was separately spotted without their wedding bands. As assumed, the two did not spend the holidays together this year; Brand resided in London, while his soon-to-be ex-wife celebrated Christmas miles away in Hawaii.
New information emerged this weekend about the glamorous couple of 2011 from MTV News and Huffington Post. After months of rumors, Brand allegedly filed for divorce. PerryΓÇÖs religious upbringing forbids her from being the first to step up. The pop starΓÇÖs father is an evangelical Christian pastor, according to TMZ, and religion has always been a major component of her life.
Passionate fans expressed their broken-heartedness of the former celebrity couple through social media, but Brand ensures the super-duo left on a happy note. They hope to remain great friends after the dispute is officially settled.
