Katy Perry is officially free from all ties with ex-husband Russell Brand.
Although the pair finalized their divorce back in February, Californian law required them to wait six months for the union to be officially dissolved. The finalization brings about an official end to their 14 month marriage which began when the pair wed in October 2010. The pair split after Brand filed for divorce in December 2011 citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Just last month, the pair’s relationship sparked trouble with Brand in the U.K, after both stars appeared on The Graham Norton Show in back-to-back weeks. Brand slammed Norton after he was asked about his ex-wife who had appeared on the show the week before leaving his mother extremely upset. Brand quipped:
“My mum is here. She got upset when you dragged up my marriage. I saw her cry, Graham. That’s the reality because it’s real people, Graham, that’s my real mum. I have come here to promote a film and you made my mum cry. I don’t see you as that sort of person, Graham.”
So for future reference to interviewers, when Mammy Brand is around, the now officially dissolved relationship is officially off bounds.
