Katy Asked Russell To File For Divorce - As To Not Upset Her Parents!

| Filed under: Love LineSad SadKaty PerryRussell Brand


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!

    I'm actually very sorry to hear this news. They made a cute couple and I felt she was exactly what he needed to tame his wild ways.

    He MUST be doing drugs again because he's out of his mind to leave that woman! Katy I'm totally available! Call me…

  2. 2

    Ugly Truth — No woman can "tame" some man's wilds. It doesn't happen. She knew going in what his past was, and most cats don't change their spots.

    On another note; Katy having him file so her parents aren't upset with her: Yet they can read it on any tabloid in the country that's what she did? How does that make sense?

  3. 3

    The wrath of her religious parents already happened when she married the loser…..


    There is nothing wrong with religion if it makes a person feel good about themselves.

  4. 4

    Re: Ugly Truth News – don't be so ignorant…..lots of pretty girls are real bitches.

  5. 5

    if that's true that is ridiculously STUPID. she thought THAT was the thing she did that would upset her parents??? not how she carries herself? lol

  6. 6

    Her filing for divorce would upset her parents, but baring your breasts on Sesame Street - no problem?

  7. 7

    Katy's what … 27? She's no kid. She had no problem letting her boobs hang out on Sesame Street, singing, "I kissed a girl & I liked it", etc. and she's a grown woman who got married & has her own successful career; but she reverts to "I don't want to upset mommy & daddy by filing for divorce"? She sounds pretty immature and flighty.

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – It was HER partying that ruined the marriage. Although Perez's site has failed to post negative stories about her, she would go out and party without him, constantly.

  10. 10

    bullshit. all this "christian beliefs" crap her publicist spouts out hourly is nothing but marketing for some cokewhore who is being sold as a virgin whore complexed blow up doll.

  11. 11

    She got tired of him blowin' his load in under 7.5 minutes. And he got tired of her poor feminine hygiene. That's all code for "amicable". "Wrath of her religious parents"? What, are you as ignorant as the people you bash for making stupid comments regarding TGLC? Wait, I forgot what band of idiots I was talking to. Of course you and your "writers" are. Anyway, did it ever cross your mind that it wasn't a "wrath" (that you so stereotypically stated because you educate yourself via HBO 2am movies of the week.) she was worried about, but more like feeling ashamed and disappointment?

  12. 12

    and if you live in LA , you know Katy Perry has been a cokehead f-up for years, hanging with the likes of marcus mlinari, having other people ghost write her music, getting autotuned with her voice and her tits(she always had big ones, but they were big a couple years ago cause she was CHUBBY-how did they grow bigger now that she's slimmed down). She's a fake of the highest caliber.

  13. 13

    I love them as a couple how sad. Personally I don't think it has nothing to do with her parents being religious because if that was the case maybe her parents wrath should be base more with their daughter being drunk on national tv and wearing skimpy outfits than with russell. Russell has actually gotten his act together.

  14. 14

    I'm sure Russell is no angel and they probably had an open marriage of some kind, but Katy parties hard without him, to the pint he would have to drop her off and then pick her up like he was her parent. When you are secretly partying with Lindsay Lohan(yes, this is one hundred percent true) What kind of trouble are you getting into? He's a recovering addict, he can't be around shit like that, and she hangs out with lowlifes. Anyone in hollywood knows how low this girl will slum when it comes to partying. She just keeps it from the public well.

  15. 15

    BEYONCE TOTALLY HAS A FAKE BUMP…..heard her surrogate finally popped…..

    look at her face….no fat at all like a normal pregnant woman….her bump is fake and Perez knows it….that is why he blocks us from commenting on it….doesn't have a problem going after the Duggars but protects Beyonce…..

    Perez is a bully!

  16. 16

    this is a bunch of bull shit. If she was so worried of how her parents feel about anything, she would of never done the Video for California Girls.

  17. 17

    hahah, nice fanfiction. She's pushing 30, all these bullshit excuses she uses to act like a virgin-whore is quickly becoming boring. Get a new act, sweetie.

  18. 18

    bullshit. Why does she always try to act like she's 13? I hope this bitch goes away for good cause I'm sick of hearing her twat voice and shitty dancing.

  19. 19

    I find it extremely hilarious that everybody think they know what goes on behind closed doors. Ha.

  20. 20

    Sick of this twat and her lies. Team Russell, take this bitch for all she's worth. You know his ass earned every penny.

  21. 21

    Do her and her team think ANYONE is going to buy this bs excuse? She acts like a dumb whore for a living, and we think her parents are going to be shocked by divorce?

  22. 22

    Re: triple M – There are pictures of Beyonce in a bikini with a baby bump.

  23. 23

    Re: Northshore – I totally agree

  24. 24

    if this dumb bitch pulls a taylor swift and next year we have to hear "I hate your Russell Brand, but I'm not saying Russell specifically, so this could be about anyone" songs on the radio, I'm going to cut this bitch.

  25. 25

    I find it funny a girl that had whipped cream coming out her tits did not want to file for divorce because she did not want to disappoint her parents!

  26. 26

    This bitch's tits interested me for two seconds, then she opened her mouth and I wanted to neck punch her from then on. I hope he takes half of all her money from this year, would serve the bitch right.

  27. 27

    This is a fucking lie her parents didn't even like Russell.

  28. 28

    Re: Meggie246524 – Meggie, some people respect, honour and love their parents their entire lives, especially if they have been raised in a religious home.

  29. 29

    How dumb is she and her team if they think people will actually buy that load of crap? She's this really crude bitch who thinks she can play innocent when it serves her. Sorry honey, your true colors come through and Russell should get some sort of saint status for tolerating your bs public image management for as long as he did.

  30. 30

    Another ridiculous story. With her tits splashed all over tv all of the time, I can't imagine her being the one to file for divorce would break her mom and dad's hearts. There's got to be nothing left of either one's after all the sh*t she's done to become famous and get attention, so why would her filing hurt them? Besides, I'm sure her actions were a big influence on the marriage failing. You can't be married to an ex-addict and be partying hard all of the time. It shows that she has no respect for her spouse's sobriety. Plus, she seems like a complete idiot, and she also has absurd so-called beliefs that completely clash with his. It was doomed from the start.

  31. 31

    Re: be strong – how is she respecting her parents with how she portrays herself publicly and professionally? If respect was a priority for her in terms of her parents beliefs, she would have stayed a christian singer. She can't pull out her parents and upbrining like some trump card when it's convenient, it's disingenious at best.

  32. 32

    Poor Katy - as if a technicality will help her ignorant parents cope. Maybe the religious right should just join reality and get over it. Divorce happens, and it's not wrong.

  33. 33

    yeah right…

  34. 34

    How could her parents be disappointed I mean they gave it a year? I am sure they tried really hard to keep their vows and it wasn't like Katy got tired of a new toy. I am curious is saying Katy's parents are christians code for mild retardation? Is this like an episode of Three's Company?

  35. 35

    She acts retarded and then thinks it's cute. And people actually fall for it and buy her shitty records, it's amazing.

  36. 36

    Yet another hetero couple who ruins the sanctity of marriage, HA! And some people say gays will do that….what a twisted world…People: get to know one another before you marry….let the hot sex, infatuation stage end and REALLY learn about the other!!! She needed to dump him though…being a sex and drug addict is not attractive and not sure what she ever saw in him to begin with!!! Congrats, KATY and go date girl….

  37. 37

    Re: triple M – Yeah and good looking guys can be dicks (but why speak so generally, right?)!!! So, when calling a woman a "bitch", realize YOU sound ignorant and sexist.

  38. 38

    Re: violethill – Where?!?

  39. 39

    This is the biggest crock of BS I've ever heard. This isn't about not wanting to upset her religious parents. This is about Katy not wanting to appear as if she has been dumped, which is exactly what happened in this case. Lets not sugar coat this by blaming it on the religious parents, ok? Fact#: She sang about lesbianism and married a former drug and sex addict. If that didn't upset the parents, why would, all of a sudden, would this? So cut the crap and see this for what it is! Katy's embarrassed that Russell beat her to the punch by filing first and making her look like the dumpee. Not a good look for her any way you slice it. So what happens? She enlists the publicists to release this crock of a BS statement to help save face. End. Of.

  41. 41

    Her being half naked and spraying cream out of her tits wont upset her parents, but getting out of a bad relationship will.

  42. 42

    If she didn't want to tell her folks and made Russell file for divorce I'm thinking she's been playing him all along..he has seemed to be totally in love with her-if she's doing drugs when he's had this in his past then shame on her-she needs to grow up!

  43. 43

    They got married too quickly, her career also was taking off when she met Russell. Maybe she was not ready to settle down like Russell was.

  44. 44

    How old is she? Why does she still give a shit what her parents say? I doubt her lifestyle is a christian one when she shakes her huge tits on TV constantly.

  45. 45

    Re: be strong – How do you explain photo's of a 34 year old man touching his mother inappropriately?

  46. 46

    Haha I love how stupid she is. I'm the same age as her and I feel like we are talking about someone more in the Bieber generation. She is trying to cover up that he dumped her butch/flat ass. Russell is an intelligent mant I've never seen anyone match his vocabulary. Flash to an interview with this bitch and you are bound to be driven crazy by this women's dumbness…especially with the cocaine and booze. I haven't played with drugs in some years now 4 or 5 (I grew up) but I do know how annoying it can be to see someone on them especially someone so dump and annoying with no natural beauty. In a couple of years when her tits sag and Russell is with a beautiful, mature and Intelligent women he will be so thankfull he got out when he did.

    You're really gonna milk this one aren't you, Mario! Seems to be the only thing that has gotten over 5 comments in the last 6 months!

  48. 48

    Two faced whore. My friend was a roadie on the Warped Tour when she was still with travis and tagged along with the gym class heros. She is wild and out of control, and neck deep into coke and pot. All this shit about Jesus is just that- shit.

  49. Laury says – reply to this


    So they would be uspet about her filing for divorce but they don't mind seeing her half-naked on the cover of Rolling Stone and in videos with whipped cream coming out of her tits? Yeah, okay…

  50. 50

    Russell is a gentleman which few realize. I doubt he wanted the divorce. He was in it for life. She's the immature one who still likes to party. Russell has been clean and sober for YEARS. People don't realize this. He's far from the lush cut up that he is in movies and in his comedy act. This is a wise man who is very spiritual.

  51. 51

    Hey Katy Perry (Mrs. Brand): Why do you feel you have to DECEIVE your parents? When they find out the truth, how do you think they will feel about you? Just because your parents are self-appointed evangenital ministers doesn't mean they have to give a rats ass. You've always been a cheap tart, now admit your folly.

  52. 52

    the one thing that no one has noticed, or maybe someone has. christianity states that divorce is wrong. it doesn't state that you are free from sin as long as you don't file, it states that it is wrong. period. and i totally agree with everyone else about her contradicting and hypocritcal ways. please katy perry, you're not fooling anyone.

  53. 53

    I love Katy Perry

  54. 54

    Hypocritcal cow

  55. 55

    ….why do insecure idiots even get married in the first place ??………

  56. 56

    man, what's up with all the haters on here? yikes

  57. 57

    hes just to ugly, i dont care. she can go marry some airhead guy, they would be perfect together lol

  58. 58

    The "Christian girl' who parties, gets drunk, does drugs, cusses, wears skanky clothing, talk about her breast non stop, brags about her skills in bed, lies to the media about her marriage being great, dye's her hair, make fun of people, lies about her image and her faith, marries for sex and publicity, criticizes anyone who she thinks is against her religion or mocking it, shows off non stop, acts fake, sings about stupid shit, wears caked on makeup, acts like a skank, talks like a idiot, banks off her tits and skimpy and lack of clothing, marries and dates certain guys just to get back at her parents, and divorces her husband after a few years of being together.
    What a nice and wholesome Christian girl Katy Perry is ;]

  59. 59

    He is SO UGLY ! Gawd…what she saw in him, I'll NEVAH know ! FUGLY DUDE ! ! ! He'll be back on drugs in a N.Y. Minute !

  60. 60


  61. 61

    This makes her belief system look Soooooo hypocritical!!!!It wont count if my Husband files…..sad really.

  62. 62

    Told you! What a fake bitch…and all of you saying it is because of him are idiots, just because of a past? Well she knew about it before they married and no one knows the shit that she did during the marriage so stfu.. xP

  63. 63

    it really pisses me off how couples are so quick to divorce these days. if you have problems you work through them. what's the point of getting married if you're willing to break up just like in any other relationship?

  64. 64

    i don't believe this. you've claimed for years you're such good friends with her and you were saying everything was a-ok up until YESTERDAY.

  65. 65

    The wrath of her religious parents is Katy half naked body parading on stage with cupcakes boobs and sexual lyrics.

    Not Russel

  66. 66

    What exactly attracted him to her in the first place? They seem like total polar opposites. Huge tits can practically be bought in Dollar General these days so he could have set who ever he got together with up with the tit package. I just can't get my head around what he could have found in common with her. And did one of you say she slums it with Lindsay? Maybe Linds goes to the same church. Yeah, that must be it. That church on the snowy mountain.

  67. 67

    If they didn't marry so quickly after they started dating than she wouldn't be divorcing right now. She is a moron.

  68. 68

    weird how religious parents seem to raise the most effed up slutty kids.. well at least the marraige lasted awhile she did well to tame the tiger for awhile ..

  69. k-lee says – reply to this


    This actually makes me sad… :( I thought they would last… They seem to match…

  70. 70

    What do her tits have to do with her Christianity? When did they add "Thou shalt not show thy tits on thy television"? Or "Thou shalt not marry a former philandering junkie or wear skimpy clothing?" Last I checked it said "Judge not lest ye be judged." If you're gonna pull Christianity into it and all and get on your high horses you MIGHT wanna follow your own supposed rules. Just sayin.

    I think this is PR bullshit and it's stupid to keep posting it. I think these articles Perez keep posting are making his "friend" look worse and worse. If I was Perez's "friend" I'd file an injunction to shut his ass up.

  71. 71

    BigMacn, I was only referring to people respecting their parents in general. Meggie was saying that Katy was 27 and didn't have to please her parents anymore. I admit I don't know much about Katy's behaviours and lifestyle and Gilbert, I'm sorry I can't comment you back because I don't know what you are referring to. Did Russell do something wrong or are you being mean and talking about poor Perez?

  72. 72

    Re: kittybear1 – It appears to be the ethos of this site, should call it HatersRU - the voices of reason are getting fewer and fewer as they finally give up and go to use other sites where that kind of behaviour is not allowed. Some of the things people say on here are actually illegal, I've seen death threats and allsorts of stuff, decent sites do not allow this ;o)

  73. 73

    Re: Saetana – I know what you mean. Some people really have some serious issues, you just can't miss, or they are just pulling your leg. Sometimes it is really hard to tell the difference.

  74. 74

    Re: Saetana – very true. It's kind of a reflection of our culture today that obviously, people are angry/unhyappy with their own lives and by anonymously raging on a website about people you don't know and things that don't affect you is a way of temporarily feeling better. If anyone posts a comment where their opinion is different to someone elses, they're met with things like: stfu and cheap name-calling instead of acceptance/open discussion. This site is either drawing the majority if its commenters from immature tweens (who are angry & loud by nature & eventually grow out of it) or by some pretty racist, hateful & angry people. I like this site less & less because of the childishness & venom of the posters. If anyone is still reading this thread, I'm sure my post will get these kinds of responses (in which case, my point will be made). Maybe my 2012 resolution will be to pull back from the comments more and just stick to reading the articles, since they're still fun to read. Happy New Year everyone.

  75. 75

    This is so very sad. :(

  76. 76

    didn't want to upset her parents? GIve me a break! She always has her tits out and in people's faces and even had them on display when she was on Sesame Street! Her song lyrics are not that "Christian" and her music video's always sexual. Pink hair , slutty outfits, yeah mom and dad must love that. She is obviously not too worried about what her parents think.

  77. 77

    who didnt see this coming! he is a douche and she can do MUCH better!!! like me!

  78. 78

    Religious non-sensical hypocrisy. Filing for divorce is wrong but getting divorced is OK? Really?!

  79. 79

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Hmm I get the impression it was her not him and that he was a lot more into her than she was him. I get the impression she likes a drink and parties a lot, which isn't exactly good for a recovering alcoholic and drug addict to be around.

  80. 80

    Re: violethill – triple M always comments on these things until someone calls them out, they're oddly nowhere to be seen. Don't expect any admission of guilt at all. The fact that their ignorant, mean-spirited comments can finally be NOT be taken seriously due to this insane conspiracy theory about Beyonce is a great comfort to me. What do you have to say for yourself. triple M? Will you finally defend yourself or am I right?

  81. 81

    So much alimony so little time

  82. 82

    i like how she has no problem shoving her tits in everyone's face and singing about sex and kissing girls and what not, going on sesame street with her funbags out and bouncing around- and yet she goes to these lengths to not make herself look bad, waaaahhh im a good christian i dont wanna upset my mommy and daddy- bitch please like you gave a rat's ass when you pasted candy to your privates- or when you took that naked picture of yourself in the mirror. she's not only an idiot, but a hypocrite as well who has ZERO talent- she's all looks

  83. 83

    Thank God they didn't have any kids.

  84. 84

    I sort they were a real good match and it's sad to hear that
