UPDATE-Katy Perry and Russell Brand were spotted separately during the Christmas break without their wedding rings. During a season where proposals and baby news are popping up left and right, Katy and Russell appear to heading in the opposite direction of love. After just over one year of marriage reports are swirling that the couple are on the rocks. A recent knock fight just before the holidays is to blame. Instead of using the joyful time to rekindle the love, Katy and Russell spent their Christmas apart.
Katy, her family and friends were spotted splashing it up on the warm beaches of Hawaii while Brand was pictured hamming it up with friends in chilly, Cornwall England. In both cases, neither Katy nor Russell were wearing their wedding ring. Katy’s can be brushed off as a safety measure while on the beach, but Russell…well..not so much. Just Thursday afternoon he was spotted in London without his ring.
So what could have drove this seemingly loving couple over the edge? Sources claim one topic of contention is that Perry doesn’t feel Brand respects her friends or her family’s religious beliefs. Katy was brought up in a staunchly Christian family where she was previously quoted as not being able to say certain words, or listen to certain songs if they were found to be overly salacious.
According to the Daily Mail, Brand on the other hand previously admitted to being a partying sex addict who shifted his interest to gardening once he married Perry.
“I can’t believe I used to have sex 20 times a week, especially now I’m married. But now I’m a bloody good gardener.”
So hey, perhaps Russell is beginning to find married life a bit boring which may have explained the screaming match the two shared before their holiday.
A source tells US Weekly of the fight the pair before Christmas,
“They had a massive fight. She was like, ‘F–k you. I’m going to do my own thing.’ Russell replied, ‘Fine, f–k you too.’”
Yep, those definitely sound like fighting words. And although the two have not officially split, sources confirm that things aren’t getting much better.
“They haven’t split up just yet, but things are not good. The fighting is getting worse. The split may come soon, but they are both so dramatic and volatile, the relationship could become great again.”
Despite the rumors, Brand himself told Ellen DeGeneres in a recent interview that he’s happily married, “I’ve treated the whole Internet now as if it’s a wicked little liar,” he added. “Yeah. I am really happily married.”
