Katy Perry, Russell Brand split leaves friends in shock

No one can believe it's happening

Mrs Carter: It wasn’t just the fans that were shocked by their divorce announcement

Katy Perry and Russell Brand were polar opposites, but something about them just seemed to fit together perfectly, so when they announced their decision to divorce, it was rather shocking to their fans.

As it turns out their fans weren’t the only ones left with their mouths hanging open like a sea bass. People Magazine is reporting that their close friends were also blindsided by their divorce announcement and are finding the information difficult to digest.  One insider said;

“I was shocked when I found out. I was really surprised that Russell filed for divorce so quickly – especially at Christmas time. I thought they would be together for a long time. Maybe not forever – but definitely not just 14 months. They were always laughing.  They were very affectionate, always holding hands. They seemed like they were really in love.”

Another source said that Katy and Russell take marriage very seriously, so they were surprised to hear that they gave up on it after only 14 months.  They said;

“These aren’t people who give up. I always thought they would work on their marriage if they had trouble.”

While reports have been running rampant saying that the reasons behind their break up are everything from constant fighting, to differences in religious beliefs, to problems with Katy’s parents, no one really knows what made this couple decided to call it quits, but many fans are hoping that they will find a way to work it out and stay together.
