Confirming the end of the couple’s 14-month marriage in official statement to the Press Association, the comedian said,
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage.”
News of their split comes after months of speculation surrounding the pair’s turbulent relationship, which saw them spend the festive season apart.
And while funnyman Russ may be the one with the wild womanizing rep - sources claim the REAL reason for their break-up is Katy’s refusal to settle down.
“[Russell] wanted her to stay at home, do the whole Hollywood housewives thing. But that was never going to happen for Katy, she loves her singing career,” a source told the Sunday Mirror.
“She’s just done a year-long tour, she’s incredibly successful and she wasn’t ready to give up her career. I don’t think she was prepared to give that up and give time to the marriage.”
And while the ‘Get Him To The Greek’ actor, who filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences,” is reportedly “cut up” about the decision to call time on their two-year romance – his songstress ex appears to have moved on already…
According to the New York Post, the ‘I Kissed A Girl’ hitmaker was spied “flirting” with a mystery man at a New Year’s Eve bash at Soho House in West Hollywood.
“She was talking to a guy with long hair down to his shoulders in the hallway. They were talking for a while. She was smiling and leaning up against wall,” a source told the New York Post.
“After midnight Katy and a male friend got on the dance floor, twirling each other around and dancing holding hands. She looked like she was having a great time.”
