Katy Perry and Russell Brand lost bookmakers money this week as thousands of punters put a bet on them splitting but according to friends of Katy Perry and Russell Brand, the divorce news was a shock.
Russell Brand who filed for divorce from his singer wife was said to have done it after Katy Perry refused to have children at the present moment but according to one friend, they expected the couple to have a long and happy marriage.
A source told the People that the divorce news came out of the blue and no one close to Katy expected it.
“I was shocked when I found out. I was really surprised that Russell filed for divorce so quickly – especially at Christmas time,” a friend told People.
“I thought they would be together for a long time. Maybe not forever – but definitely not just 14 months. They were always laughing. They were very affectionate, always holding hands. They seemed like they were really in love.”
According to another insider the couple gave up to easily and should have fought for their marriage instead of failing at the first hurdle.
