Hollywood news has learned that KATY PERRY wanted RUSSELL BRAND to be the one to file for divorce, which explains a lot. Because normally it's the woman who does the filing, right? So it was kind of weird (and embarrassing on Katy's part) that Russell was the one who did it.
But, according to recent reports, Katy really wanted Russell to be the one to file for divorce and not her, because she reportedly didn't want to upset her parents, who are both Christian pastors. TMZ reports:
"Katy‘s parents are evangelical Christians, we’re told she didn’t want to be the one to “officially” end the marriage by filing the docs … since she was raised to believe divorce is wrong."
And despite the fact that they both repeatedly denied that their marriage was falling apart and that they were headed for divorce, as most Hollywood rumors have been saying, the couple has indeed been having problems. TMZ adds:
"Katy and Russell knew the relationship was on the rocks a couple of months ago — but didn’t want to give up on the marriage without making a concerted effort to work things out."
Well, obviously it didn't.
The site also adds that Katy and Russell have been "on board with the divorce" for weeks now, but if that were true, then it's pretty strange that they decided to wait until the holidays to split up. After all, if Katy were so worried about her parents, she wouldn't have marred their Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations with such sad news.
