Katy Perry and Russell Brand spent Christmas apart. That she wasn’t wearing her ring in the photos of her in a bikini in Hawaii - click here to see her WICKED body - wasn’t so much of a super sign. I have friends with big diamonds who take them off at the beach, in the pool, etc. But now Russell’s walking around London without his. And when you combine that with Us Weekly’s report about an explosive argument that went down between the two of them just before the holidays, well, now it’s not if but when. The first celebrity split of 2012?

His face at the MTV VMAs portended it. And even if they salvage it - again- this time, how many times can you not fix a problem before it becomes unfixable?
