Whenever there is a huge divorce in celebrity land it is always good to wait a few days after the initial report to not only savor being right about the upcoming divorce and the cheating long before anyone else, but also to gather every rumor you can find and wonder how many of them are true.

The first rumor is that Russell Brand had to file for divorce because Katy Perry does not believe in divorce and did not want to disappoint her parents. That one could be true. This way Katy can play the woe is me card, but I don't think it had anything to do with her parents. I think singing about kissing a girl and liking it pretty much told her parents that Katy was just a wee bit different than the other people they go to church with.
No prenup? Absolutely true and Russell Brand is going to make a fortune. With his dying movie career after a couple of huge bombs and no real prospects for hitting a big one, Russell stands to make about $30M from his short marriage. The entire time they were married, Katy was selling records and on tour and will half to give up half that money to Russell. Whether he tricked her into not signing one seems untrue. Katy is very smart. She believes in marriage for life and figured she did not need one.
Russell Brand told Katy she was not funny after hosting SNL. Definitely. He did it in that smarmy passive aggressive way and said it more than once. He was also a little jealous the show did not want him. In fact, he was a little tired of always being second fiddle to Katy and the fact his last couple of movies bombed while Katy was at the top of her game really ticked him off.
Katy could not satisfy Russell's sexual demands including his fetish for wheelchair sex. I don't know if they tried the wheelchair sex thing, but as sexual as Katy comes across in her music and videos, she is pretty conservative when it comes to sex and Russell is, well, Russell. Everyone in the world knows he cheated during the marriage. He didn't intend to at the beginning, but they never saw each other and the guy transferred his drug addiction to yoga and sex. There is only so much yoga one person can do so...
