Russell Brand Files For Divorce From Katy Perry After a Year of Marriage

Sad news for the fans of Katy Perry and Russell Brand's marriage: The pop star who provided the voice of Smurfette and her Get Him to the Greek husband have filed for divorce after just 14 months of wedlock. Now repeat after me: I will not let this Hollywood divorce ruin my New Year's Eve. I will not let this Hollywood divorce ruin my New Year's Eve.

Earlier this afternoon, Brand -- who just finished filming Adam Shankman's '80s musical movie Rock of Ages -- issued a statement to the USA Today: ""Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. [...] I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

News of the divorces arrives weeks after tabloid speculation that a split was impending.

In honor of this sad news, let's revisit an eerie Get Him to the Greek clip which shows Brand's larger-than-life character Aldous Snow breaking up with his pop-star girlfriend (Rose Byrne) on a talk show.

    Oh Katy, have we learned nothing from Liza Minnelli?

    What a delightful little clip. Reminds me of why perhaps the daughter of a preacher and a leach were maybe never going to go it for the long haul. Did no one else see this coming?

    Howdy! This article couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a great read. Thanks for sharing!
