No joke, it's now official: British comedian Russell Brand is divorcing pop star and California "gurl" Katy Perry. Brand's lawyer filed for divorce this morning in Los Angeles, the UK's Daily Mail reports.
Expect some possible fireworks in court. The Russell Brand-Katy Perry divorce follows "a massive fight," Us Weekly reports. Katy Perry "was like 'F--- you. I'm going to do my own thing,'" a source tells the magazine.
It seems California girls really are "fierce," like Perry's song claims -- as in fiercely independent. While Perry, 27, was spotted in Hawaii over the Christmas holiday, husband Brand was seen tossing back some beers in a pub in the UK, he Daily Mail reports.
Perhaps tellingly, Brand was not wearing his wedding ring, the Mail reports.
