Katy Perry & Russell Brand's Marriage Is 'On The Rocks,' Say Multiple Sources

Katy Perry and Russell Brand Split

Katy Perry and Russell Brand spent Christmas on the opposite sides of the world from each other and several sources tell HollywoodLife.com there is major trouble in paradise!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have been trying to put on a brave — and happy — face for the cameras, but behind the scenes, their marriage is crumbling apart at a rapid pace. In fact, HollywoodLife.com has learned the power couple, who just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary, are on the rocks.

“Katy and Russell are just in two very different places right now with their lives,” our source says. “Their marriage is not working out. He’s in recovery and really trying to stay clean, but her lifestyle isn’t helping him at all.”

In fact, things are so strained between Katy, 27, and Russell, 36, they deliberately spent Christmas apart from each other. Despite People magazine’s report that the two were together in Hawaii, Katy was actually there alone, without Russell, who was 7,000 miles away in South West England. The British comedian was spotted in a Cornwell pub Dec. 24 and then at his friend David Baddiel‘s charity swim Dec. 26. The following day, Russell went to Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park in London, once again, without Katy.

Meanwhile, Katy was photographed frolicking in the ocean without her wedding ring Christmas day on the island of Kauai, where she was staying in a private rented luxury villa. Since then, she hasn’t been seen by any photography agencies, leaving us to wonder if she’s still on the island.

So what happened between the two A-listers, who seemed so madly in love earlier this year? Multiple insiders confirm with us that while Katy’s career is blowing up, Russell wants to settle down. The outgoing pop star was the first female singer to get five hits on the Billboard Hot 100 in one year. Plus, she spent February through November on her California Dreams Tour — which left her barely any time to play wife to her new husband.

“Katy is on fire right now. She’s touring and going out all the time,” the insider explains. “She’s not ready to settle down and be ‘Mrs. Brand,’ but that’s what Russell wants.”

There have been murmurs of marital problems between Russell — who is a recovering addict — and Katy for a few months. However, the couple have gone out of their way to keep their issues under wraps. In fact, the British comedian even went on Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show earlier this month laughing off the rumors and dishing on how he wants children.

“It’s all an act,” a second insider tells us about Russell’s interview. “Katy is a bubbly, happy person and Russell is just bringing her down. He may be funny on interview shows, but in real life he is not this happy go lucky guy…the kind of guy Katy thought she married. He is just too depressed and negative!”

In fact, at their last public appearance together — The David Lynch Foundation 3d annual “Change Begins Within” Benefit Celebration in Los Angeles Dec. 3 — Katy and Russell appeared miserable with each other.

An eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “In front of the cameras they acted really happy together but behind the scenes, Russell was miserable. It was supposed to be an event for meditation, but Russell was anything but peaceful and positive. In fact, he was really rude to one couple who wanted to take a picture of him. Katy was really embarrassed. You could tell she felt uncomfortable.”

As for Katy and Russell’s future, our sources say a split is “imminent,” but the couple isn’t ready to go public with the sad news just yet. We contacted both of the stars’ reps, but haven’t received any comments at this time.

Do you think Katy and Russell’s marriage is doomed, or are they just going through a rough patch? Sound off below.

I say this is a bunch of bull shit. I’ll believe it when Katy or Russell confirms it. The media need to STOP trying to ruin their lives.”Till death do us part, that was the pledge.” Russell said, and I believe him.

Happy New Year!
Have you ever felt life is lonely and sometimes even boring? You may need a fresh thing to excite your mind. My best friend ,she met a sexy man and they love each other! they date via online dating -casualloving dot c’0M-it’s the most effective place in the world to connect with, to find intimate encounters.There you may easily have free scamming with charming and sexy girls or handsome men….Hope you like it!Good luck!

Some of these so-called publications find pleasure in constructing the demise of entertainers relationships. Just like with Demi and Ashton every other day some tabloid magazine was reporting something negative about the couple, until eventually the rumors became true.
Now in defense of Kati and Russels relationship, I would have to say, you don’t have any credible proof. Who goes swimming with their wedding ring on? especially while swimming in the ocean. And Maybe Russel schedule didn’t allow for him to remain in Hawaii for a extended time. And last but not least, Who cares! nobodies relationship is perfect. It seems to me that the tabloid media has some sadistic ploy going on to, systematically disrupt the harmony between married celebrities and it’s sick!
The game that is played by the tabloid media goes something like this:
A celebrity couple becomes engaged and then there is suddenly a invisible clock that counts down to D-day and then D-day takes place and suddenly the tabloids are abuzz about wither or not the couple is right for each other, whose cheating (it at all). Then there are the questions about prenuptial agreements and whose making more money-in hopes of creating doubt with in the marriage. Then questions about a babies start to arise (after questions about the prenuptial agreement,of course). And when all else fails the papers and online post begin insinuating that the couples relationship is on the rocks. Now you prove to me how this little system isn’t some kind of ploy to kill someones marital bliss?

Let me explain:
1. If there is a “source” tell us who “it” is
2. If I were married I would take my wedding ring off at the beach because I would not wanna chance losing it.
3. When your famous some times things don’t go perfect and maybe they for some reason couldn’t make their schedules work.
Rumor not true.

Weird. I thought they would do well. They seemed ‘smart’ about fame. Like, they new to put on a show and to settle down, too. Like Gaga. I don’t like her, but she knows what she is doing. Unlike Miley and, even worse, Lindsey.

The problem wih reports like this is that people jump to conclusions without hearing from the only 2 people who REALLY know what is going on. And “sources” in my opinion are total BS. If they are having problems, the last thing they need is for them to be paraded around celebrity gossip sites. I’ll believe it when Katy and/or Russell say it.

i agree that problems in a celebrity marriage are not helped by being written about, but that’s part of being a celebrity. it leaves me wondering why the heck you’re reading this site if you don’t like to hear what’s happening with celebrities? i’m guessing you’ll be back to read more about their problems as they unfold.

I never thought it would last as they don’t mesh. They don’t look like they suit each other. Katy is a bigger presence than Russell…

Oh yes more bull to float around. Well done. Just because they don’t flaunt it doesn’t mean there is a problem with it. In my opinion you should never believe anything unless it comes from the horses mouth in this case being either Katy or Russell’s.

katy hangs out with major cokeheads like Markus Molinari, he was the dude she was with in Hawaii. I don’t blame RB for being a downer if being high with Markus is the alternative.

i’m not sure why you think this is “made up”. how in the world do you think these sites and magazines get their information? do you really think it only comes from the celebrities themselves? seriously, if they didn’t have sources or contacts they would have nothing to write about. for all of you who say you’ll believe it when you hear it from katy and russell…get ready to believe it because it won’t be long before you hear it from them (ala demi and ashton).
