Katy Perry, Russell Brand to split after 14 months

Russell Brand and Katy Perry

LOS ANGELES -- Russell Brand is divorcing Katy Perry after 14 months of what appeared to be a storybook marriage.

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

Brand, 36, offered no other details, but in papers filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the British comedian cited irreconcilable differences.

A representative for Perry, 27, did not return a call seeking comment.
