British actor and comedian Russell Brand has announced that he is filing for divorce from popstar Katy Perry.

According to US gossip website TMZ, Brand filed for divorce today (December 30), citing "irreconcilable differences".

The actor married the 'California Gurls' singer at a ceremony in India in October 2010 and it had been previously reported that Perry was hoping to take a year off from music to start a family with Brand, but over the past few months, rumours that the couple were on the verge of splitting have seemed to be constantly ongoing.

Earlier this week it emerged that the couple had spent Christmas apart from each other and both then were pictured separately without their wedding rings.

Brand has issued a statement, which reads as follows: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

Perry, who has spent much of the last two years on tour in support of her latest studio album 'Teenage Dream', has yet to issue a statement about the separation.
