Katy Perry and Russell Brand Finalize Divorce

Monday, July 16, 2012

KATY Perry and Russell Brand are officially over.

The former couple’s divorce was finalized this weekend.

The pair filed a divorce agreement on February 8, but under Californian law this does not become official until six months have passed, meaning the pair were not legally single until Saturday.

Katy and Russell split after 14 months of marriage last December citing irreconcilable differences. The British comic did not ask for any of the singer’s estimated $90million fortune.

Katy recently blamed Russell for the breakdown of their marriage, as he didn’t come and see during her enough while she was on her California Dreams Tour.

When asked if Russell’s absence was the catalyst for the break-up, Katy replied, “Yes, if I could edit it any other way I would but that is exactly what it was.

“I always had plans to make this record (‘Teenage Dream’) and usually with a record, you tour.

“Touring is always important to me. It’s like a big IOU to my fans, because I know they are the reason I exist.”
