LOS ANGELES: British comic Russell Brand filed for divorce Friday to end his marriage to US pop star Katy Perry 14 months after the pair were wed in India.

“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends,” the 36-year-old comedian and actor said in a statement.

In court documents Brand filed in Los Angeles, the British actor and comedian cited “irreconcilable differences” as a reason for divorce.

The couple, married on October 23 last year after a whirlwind romance, have no children but the court documents, shown in a facsimile posted by celebrity news website TMZ, described “community property assets” alluding to possible earnings and assets acquired during their time together.

Brand, a recovering drug and alcohol addict with a reputation as a womanizer, found fame as a comedian and later as a TV and radio presenter in Britain before starring in hit Hollywood films “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to the Greek.”

Perry, 27, is best known for hit songs, “Teenage Dream,” California Gurls,”and “I Kissed a Girl.” Her debut album “One of the Boys” garnered two Grammy nominations, and her second record “Teenage Dream” was given six Grammy nods
