How and when did it all start?

In 2008 a popular singer Katy Perry attended the VMAs, where Russell Brand was a host. That’s how they got acquainted with each other. However, at that time, there was no chemistry. Everything changed in 2009 when they met again at VMAs. After a month of dating, they announced they were an official union and appeared together at Paris Fashion Week.

Surprising engagement and marriage

It would be interesting to know that Brand proposed to his soul mate on New Year’s Eve of 2009 just after three months of seeing each other. It happened while they were on vacation in India. In October 2010 they tied the knot at a beautiful Hindu ceremony, close to the place, where Russell had popped a question a year before. Unfortunately, there are absolutely no details about the wedding as well as photos.

What happened next?

Even though they were crazy in love with one another, their relationship ended as quickly as it began. In April 2011, the actor mentioned that being married was great but 24/7 media attention had a bad influence on both celebrities. In November 2011 there started appearing rumors of the couple’s breakup, yet they debunked it all the time.

However, in December 2011 the film performer filed for divorce stating irreconcilable differences. In an interview with Vogue, Perry mentioned that they had not been in touch for some time already and she got to know about the divorce process via message from her-then-husband. In July 2012 everything was finalized, meaning that their married life lasted only 14 months.
