    Katy Perry and Russell Brand are officially no longer a part of each other.

    E! News has confirmed that the "Part of Me" singer's marriage to the British funnyman came to a hard, court-sanctioned end Monday, closing the book on one of showbiz's oddest couples whose 14-month union seemed to end as quickly as it began.

    The couple reached an agreement about their divorce back in February but, per California law, had to wait for six months for the union to be officially dissolved.

    The duo married on Oct. 23, 2010, but Brand filed for divorce the following December, citing irreconcilable differences.

    And although they officially became single today, that hasn't stopped either from jumping back into the dating pool: Back in March, Perry burned up the Paris party scene with hottie French model Baptiste Giabiconi and then, just a month later, was spotted packing on the PDA with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd at Coachella.

    Brand, meanwhile, was linked to Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas in March.

    That doesn't mean there isn't some remorse, though: In May, the funnyman confessed to Ellen DeGeneres his affection for his ex, saying, "I still love her as a human being" and added that he's only got "love and positivity for her."

    Still, don't start busting out the Kleenex: Perry and Brand have been keeping plenty busy these days to mope over anything.

    Brand, who found himself in the middle of a phone-tossing fracas in March, went on to host the MTV Movie Awards two months later

    As for Perry, she can now add "movie star" to her growing résumé after her new flick, Part of Me, opened last week to a respectable $11 million. She also recently announced plans to launch her own record label, and is reportedly being considered as a judge for American Idol following the departures of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
