It turns out the rumors that there was trouble in Candyland were right.

Russell Brand denied the rumors that his marriage with Katy Perry was on the rocks while he was on Ellen earlier this month, but the couple celebrated Christmas separately and were photographed without their wedding rings. But today TMZ reports that Brand has filed for a divorce from Perry in Los Angeles Superior Court. He released a statement confirming the split: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

The divorce papers say that there are "community property assets," TMZ reports, which is a sign that there might not be a prenup or if they do have a prenup it doesn't cover all the assets they accumulated over a year of marriage. The couple wed in India in October 2010.
