2011 wasn’t a banner year for celebrity couples. This year, we saw our fair share of quick hook-ups and disastrous break-ups. Divorce seemed to be the word of the year. Now, a new celebrity divorce has hit the fan and my jaw is hitting the floor.

Russell Brand has filed for divorce from his mega-pop star wife, Katy Perry. The two were married last year in India and seemed to be absolutely in love. The docs were filed in LA with the reason for ending the marriage being “irreconcilable differences.”. The pair had recently been spotted separately without their wedding rings one which started a media storm of trouble ahead.

However, many are saying that Brand may have blindsided Perry with the filing of the divorce petition. Yikes! The two did spend Christmas apart this year, a weird tradition for a newly married couple. What do you think of Russell and Katy’s new divorce? Sound off below.
