After weeks of speculation about an impending split, including Christmas spent on separate continents and photos of both Katy and Russell without their wedding bands, Brand filed for divorce on Dec. 30. A source told HollywoodLife.com that Katy is "devastated" and did not want to end the marriage, but insisted that the couple will "not get back together."
While Russell released a statement announcing the divorce, Katy has yet to comment publicly about the breakup. However, the 'Teenage Dream' singer has decided to face the paparazzi as soon as next week at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Katy must not want to let her fans down -- it was their votes that landed her five nominations, after all.
Katy is up for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Song of the Year and Favorite Tour Headliner. No matter how many awards she ends up taking home, kudos to Katy for braving the public eye during this difficult time!
