3 of 105: Russell Brand filed for a divorce from his wife of 14 months, Katy Perry on December 30, 2011. Brand cited 'irreconcilable differences' in the documents, which were filed in a Los Angeles Superior Court.

'Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage,' the 36-year-old comedian told the Associated Press on Friday. 'I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends.'

Perry, 27, and Brand were married on October 23, 2010 in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan, India, where Brand also proposed to the singer. The two began dating in September 2009 after the singer performed on the MTV Video Music Awards that were hosted by Brand. They have no children together.

In February 2012, the two reached a divorce settlement. Perry's signature on the documents included a smiley face.
