Russell Brand Hopes 2012 'Gets Happier'


Days after Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry, the estranged couple rang in 2012 on opposite sides of the globe.

Brand, 36, spent a low-key New Year’s Eve at the Savoy Hotel in London with friends, reports the U.K.’s Daily Mirror.

When a hotel patron wished him a Happy New Year, Brand replied stoically: “Here’s hoping it gets happier,” according to the Mirror.

Meanwhile, Perry, 27, was presumably still in Hawaii – where she was vacationing with friends, including one who Tweeted about a “last day in paradise” on New Year’s 2012.

Next up: the singer has shows scheduled in Manila and Jakarta later this month.
