Katy Perry's divorce finalised

16 July 2012, 13:31

 Los Angeles - Katy Perry and Russell Brand's divorced was finalised this weekend.

The couple filed a divorce agreement on 8 February, but under Californian law this does not become official until six months have passed, meaning the pair were not legally single until Saturday.

Katy and Russell split after 14 months of marriage last December citing irreconcilable differences. The British comic did not ask for any of the Firework star's estimated £45m fortune.

The 'Part of Me' singer has recently said she blames the comedian and actor for the breakdown of their marriage, as he didn't come and see during her enough while she was on her California Dreams Tour.

Not serious

When asked if Russell's absence was the catalyst for the break-up, Katy replied: "Yes, if I could edit it any other way I would but that is exactly what it was.

"I always had plans to make this record (Teenage Dream) and usually with a record, you tour.

"Touring is always important to me. It's like a big IOU to my fans, because I know they are the reason I exist."

Since their split Katy has been linked to Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, but claims their relationship is not serious.

She said: "There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it's not really appropriate to have anything serious. For me, right now, I'm totally not looking. I'm just looking to heal. And I'm on that path."

Meanwhile, Russell has been linked to British presenter Emily Hartridge, fashion stylist Maeve Reilly, actress Anouska De Georgiou, Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas and Mexican artist Oriela Medellin Amieiro although none of these romances have been confirmed.
