Russell Brand, long known for his womanizing ways and troubled past with addiction issues, fired the first shot and has filed divorce papers against his American wife, pop star Katy Perry.
TMZ reports that the British comic actor cites “irreconcilable differences” and has filed the papers in Los Angeles.
The once white hot couple were married Oct. 23, 2010 in India.
The couple publicly spent Christmas apart and neither was seen wearing a wedding ring.
Russell has released a statement, claiming, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
