Looks like Russell Brand is the one that got away. On Friday, after weeks of speculation, Brand filed for divorce from pop superstar Katy Perry. The 'Arthur' star had been spotted this week without his wedding ring. "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage," Brand said in a statement. "I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
Brand and Perry had a whirlwind romance that began when they met at the MTV Video Music Awards in September of 2009 and were engaged by January of the next year. The two were married in India on Oct. 23, 2010.

Brand, who appeared in 'Arthur' and 'Hop' this year, will next be seen in 'Rock of Ages' and Diablo Cody's untitled directorial debut. Perry, a Top-40 staple who appeared in 'The Smurfs' and hosted 'Saturday Night Live' last month, has no feature films on the horizon.

Apologies in advance for getting this song stuck in your head all day, but...
