2011 Grammy Awards - Katy Perry and Russell Brand.jpg

The marriage between Katy Perry and Russell Brand is over. The couple filed for divorce after just 14 months of marriage over reports that they disagreed about whether or not to have a baby.

Rumours of a split have been swirling for weeks and reached their peak over Christmas when the pair were spotted in different locations (Brand was in Cornwall, while Perry celebrated Christmas in Hawaii) without their wedding rings. Brand announced last Friday that they had decided to divorce. His lawyer's filed divorce papers at Los Angeles Superior Court citing 'irreconcilable differences'.

While Perry is yet to say anything public on the matter, friends close to the couple say the marriage broke down due to Perry's reluctance to put motherhood ahead of her career.

"I don't think Katy really understood what marriage was about. I don't think she was prepared to give up her career," a source said. "This wasn't one of those occasions when Russell was mucking about, he wanted to settle down and have a family. I don't think that's what Katy wants. I think she's very confused. They've been speaking a lot."

In a statement, Brand said: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
