Sadly, two years later (almost to the day), Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles from the singer, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
So how did the pair mark December 31st this year?
Brand, who was in said to be in no mood to celebrate, reportedly spent a low key evening with friends at the Savoy hotel in London.
According to the Daily Mail, one guest wished him a Happy New Year to which the comedian replied, “Here’s hoping it gets happier.”
Meanwhile, back in Los Angeles, Perry seemed to adjusting to her new single girl status just fine. The California Gurl was spotted partying at the Soho House, where she apparently cozied up to a Brand look-a-like. Eye witnesses say Perry looked perfectly happy as she danced it up with a mystery man.
Russell is now said to be considering moving back to London. A source told the Daily Star: “He would be keen to move back to Britain as he needs a fresh start. It’s a terrible time for him and despite his growing fame in America, he wants to cope with it by being back on home turf.”
