Last Friday Katy Perry and Russell Brand's divorce rumors came true when Brand reportedly filed for divorce in Los Angeles citing, "irreconcilable differences."
TMZ met up with Perry's father, Keith Hudson, as he was out shopping and when they confronted him with questions of the marital status or info on the divorce of his daughter he stayed quiet.
"I can't talk ... I can't talk to you ... sorry about that," he said.
The reporter asked him if he would have preferred the couple try to work their problems out in the church, to which he replied with the same "no comment."
It has now been claimed, according to Female First, that Perry did not want to file for the divorce herself as her parents, Mary and Keith Hudson, who are both Evangelical Pastors, would be strongly against a divorce and breaking of their vows.
The couple has only been married since October 2010, and rumors already had emerged that their marriage was in difficulty two months ago. Those rumors hit fever pitch at Christmas time as Perry spent the holidays with friends in Hawaii whilst Brand went to Cornwall in South West England. It now looks like the couple’s marriage will be added to a long list of super-short celebrity marriages.
If the divorce does go ahead the couple will have a $75 million estate to divide between them. It is believed Perry’s finances value just slightly more than double that of Brand’s.
Brand recently said, "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
This is not the first time Perry has "disappointed" her parents. Originally signing as a Christian artist in the early 2000s, Perry's lifestyle began to shift along with her music. Her parents were really hurt by her first smash single, "I Kissed a Girl."
Although Perry has stated she has grown up Christian and is still respectful to the beliefs, she has not fully acknowledged any participation in Christianity.
