Russell Brand Files for Divorce From Katy Perry

After 14 months of marriage, Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry.

In papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday, Brand, 36, cited "irreconcilable differences." No other specifics were provided in the documents, though Brand is asking that each party pay their own attorney fees and that their property rights be determined.

"Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage," Brand tells Us Weekly in a statement. "I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

The British comic's filing comes on the heels of a massive spat with Perry, 27, over the Christmas holiday, sparked over a difference in opinion as to how the duo should spend their vacation.

After planning to whisk her family via private jet to Brand's London hometown for the holidays, Perry changed course, opting to fly to Hawaii with friends.

"She was like, 'F--k you. I'm going to do my own thing.' Russell replied, 'Fine, f--k you too,'" an insider tells the new issue of Us Weekly.

In the days since, Brand was spotted out and about in London without his wedding ring.
