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."

I just hope Russell Brand does not start doing drugs again after the divorce with Katy Perry because he is a recovering addict and he could fall off the wagon easily.

I doubt that any of you know these two people personally and therefore, you have no idea what there marriage was like in the first place. I love when news like this comes out and suddenly every idiot on here becomes a marriage expert!

One would think that if your spouse and love of your life is now living a clean and sober life that the other would be very supportive of such an accomplishment~instead of running around partying.

Why suggest, figure out, comment on what happened to a couple getting divorced? Is it going to change anything? I saw Russell Brand at the Wiltern, like just before all this divorce stuff happened, and part of his comedy routine was that he thinks he should be able to have sex with whomever he wants to, but he added that he was married, and so he doesn't go by those urges. Plus, someone told me, at the after party, that he had his entourage keep him away from pretty girls. Anyone out there see Russell at the Wiltern in L.A.? It was free, in exchange for volunteer work for any of the charities he picked. The line went around the block. And there were cameramen filming all of us in line. It's supposed to become a do***entary or film of some sort.
