Katy Perry & Russell Brand

The Die Was Cast Early On

1/1/2012 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry & Russell Brand
Sources close to Katy Perry and Russell Brand tell TMZ ... the couple was infatuated with each other when they tied the knot, but the honeymoon ended very quickly.

According to our sources, Katy and Russell were initially head over heels for each other – each fascinated to be with someone who was an extreme opposite.

But we're told the two began a regime of constant bickering after they got married -- often in front of people at clubs and awards shows. They're both very stubborn and neither would easily back down.

Our sources tell us ... because of the friction and their schedules, they never spent long periods of time with each other.

One big bone of contention  ... Russell was much more of a homebody than Katy.  Katy loved going out and partying, while Russell (who is sober) didn't enjoy the scene at all. We're told he would often insist on leaving places early and asking her to come with ... which would trigger an argument.

But we're told ... as the dust settles, neither hates the other -- far from it.   There's no bad blood between them, and neither of them believes the other cheated.

As one person put it, "It was just a bad pairing."

A real wife would understand that her husband wants to remain sober and doesn't want to be around that type of scene. They both should have known this from the beginning.

How about 'the DIE was cast' -- unless you're punning on the fact that Katy so often DYES her hair, you meant to use the word DIE -- one half of a pair of dice. The phrase 'the die is cast' is a gambling metaphor.

We're also told Harvey Levin is a homosexual and needs serious help. That type of behavior is clearly perverted. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.

This is what went wrong with Kim and Kris also. These guys have to understand that these women need to be at the parties for their career. If Russell wanted to go home, she should havd said, see you later. They shouldn't try to make the other change to suit their own lifestyles.


They both are very different. If that is so, you have to make accomdations, not demands. If they don't hate each other, they should just stay together. This is a dumb reason to get divorced. It is just over where to spend the evening. If you are dating, ok, but this is marriage.


Jwoww likes Roger because he lets her go out and party, even though he is older. Maybe Russell should stop being so AA, and Katy should just party without him if he doesn't want to.

She's a stupid, alcoholic, party girl who loves to shove her titttss in peoples faces & party like a street slut; he's a recovering alcoholic/heroin/sex addict who doesn't want to be in clubs. Of course their marriage failed; they're a pair of stupid dumbasses for getting married in the first place.

I'm looking forward to hearing the religious right somehow turn this into a "the gays are destroying the sanctity of marriage" arguement with this one...

One of the strongest foundations of a marriage is the couple shares similar attitudes and values and are both working towards the same goal.

Why do these people bother to go through these elaborate marraige ceremonies? Just live together until the infatuation fizzles out or until one cheats.

I'm saddened by the news, but at the same time, Russell can be very controlling. She's to young, and he cant keep his wandering eye from wandering. I wish them both the best of luck. Another Hollywood marriage gone bust. big surprise.
