Christmas is a time usually spent with the ones you love, but Katy Perry and Russell Brand weren't exactly anxious to share the holiday cheer this year...at least with each other. According to Us Weekly, Perry originally planned to take her family to visit Brand's London hometown for the holidays, but decided to change course and set off to Hawaii with friends after the two of them had an argument.
An insider told the magazine, "They had a massive fight. She was like, 'F--k you. I'm going to do my own thing.' Russell replied, 'Fine, f--k you too.'" I guess that explains why, come Dec. 25, the multi-platinum singer was photographed splashing in the Pacific Ocean off Kauai -- without her wedding ring. Meanwhile, British comic Brand, was catching up with a pal in a pub in chilly Coverack, Cornwall. Could this mean a split is underway?
Let's remember, this isn't the first time the couple's relationship has faced the media's scrutiny. Perry and Brand fended off divorce rumors in November, claiming marital bliss, but sources say trouble is brewing. One source revealed, "Katy doesn't think Russell respects her parents' Christian beliefs or her friends." While another source explained, "They haven't split up just yet, but things are not good. The fighting is getting worse," adding, "The split may come soon, but they are both so dramatic and volatile, the relationship could become great again."
So will the famous couple -- who wed in October 2010 -- make it through 2012? We'll just have to wait and see!
