(Newser) – Big news in the celebrity splitsville department: Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry, reports TMZ. The Brit actor, who had denied rumors of marital trouble earlier in the month, confirmed in a statement: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends." The divorce papers cite "irreconcilable differences" but shed no more light. The two were married in October 2010, but both had been seen out and about of late without their wedding rings.

My view? He is an ugly mother. She has some serious boobage. Other than that - who cares? Anyone that truly "does" - needs a reality check of their very own.
