Russell Brand, Katy Perry Marriage Troubles: Actor Spotted Without Wedding Ring

Russell Brand No Ring

Russell Brand stepped out in London's West End on Thursday without his other half, Katy Perry, or the symbol of their marriage -- his wedding ring. Could it be that Brand simply forgot to slip on his ring or could there be trouble in paradise for comedic actor and his popstar wife? Brand's lack of jewelry comes at a time when rumors of a split for the pair are in mass circulation.

The pair reportedly spent Christmas apart after Perry changed her plans to fly to London to be with her husband and instead jetted off to Hawaii to spend the holiday with friends where she was also spotted without her wedding ring, according to People, while frolicking in the ocean.

The unlikely pair tied the knot in October 2010 and just last month when their divorce rumors started to gain momentum, Brand told Ellen Degeneres that they had no merit: "There is always rumors, aren't there? In the end you have to just not engage with Internet technology, which is difficult because a lot of the nude women websites I quite enjoy. But they've had to go!" the British comedian joked. "I've treated the whole Internet now like it's a wicked little liar... I am really happily married."

Although his naked ring finger may unfortunately indicate otherwise, we hope the pair really is "happily married."
