Well…at least he didn't blindside her!
Although Russell Brand was the one spotted filing the court papers to divorce from Katy Perry after a year of marriage, apparently, the singer was the one who wanted him to - so she didn't have to deal with the wrath of her religious parents!
According to sources, the two have been in trouble for the past few months, but wanted to do their best to work things out. However, that just wasn't going to happen, so Katy asked Russell to "officially" end the marriage, because her folks are evangelical Christians and raised her to believe that divorce is wrong.
Happy to know that things have been kept amicable enough for him to at least agree to help her out!
Such a shame, though!
Stay strong, you guys! You're both in our thoughts!
