  1. I wish he’d filed this a few months ago so I could have won a bar bet I made about a year ago… Any speculation as to why?

  2. The rumor seems to be that he didn’t respect her family’s religious views. But I’m sure we’ll hear lots more details in the weeks to come.

  3. beachdreaming, those sound like reasonable personality differences. Unclear why these didn’t come up *before* getting married, but I guess marriage is a fluid institution, among celebrity types anyways.

  4. I can’t see Russell Brand as a homebody. But maybe he only does the two extremes. That being said – I know a lot of people were speculating that Perry was actually peggars for awhile.

  5. I’m not really surprised actually. Especially since I heard they were doing couple counseling before they were married.

  6. I can’t really see it either Emma, but its what I have read. I guess he just doesn’t want to be tempted. *shrug* Maybe she was preggers and lost the baby? Maybe that took its toll?
