LOS ANGELES, Dec. 30 (UPI) --
British comedian Russell Brand
has filed for divorce in Los Angeles from American pop star Katy Perry
, court records indicate.
The celebrities were married a little more than a year and have no children.
Brand cited "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the split, TMZ reported Friday.
"Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage," he said in a statement issued to People.com. "I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
