In a statement to the Associated Press, Brand said only this:

"Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends,"

The couple's Teenage Dream comes to an end after just over one year of marriage. Brand and Perry wed in a lavish ceremony on a wildlife preserve in India in October 2010. Tabloids caught wind of the split when the couple spent Christmas apart.

In Hollywood terms, a 14 month marriage is practically a lifetime commitment. Singer Sinead O'Connor recently divorced two weeks after her Vegas wedding to Barry Herridge, her fourth marital split.

Kim Kardashian's 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries remains the most publicized and ridiculed Hollywood wedding of the year.
