The latest clebrity union heading for the rocks this is that of British comedian and actor Russell Brand and “Teenage Dream” singer Katy Perry.

Russell Brand decided to quit on his 14-month marriage to Katy Perry as he filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.

Brand, 36, star of the movie “Get Him to the Greek”, and U.S. pop star Perry, 27, met in 2008 and married on October, 2010 in a lavish wedding in India.

The irreverent, former drug addict and the perky Christian-raised singer of international hits like “California Gurls” and “Firework” seemed an unlikely match, but they quickly became one of the most high-profile couples in the entertainment industry.

In recent weeks however, celebrity media reported that their marriage was in trouble. They spent the Christmas holidays apart, with Brand being photographed in England, and Perry spotted in Hawaii, both without their wedding rings
