Katy Perry supported by Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez at the AMA's, as husband Russell Brand was noticeably absent. It was a night of celebration and achievements for Katy Perry at the American Music Awards, as not only did the 27-year-old pick up a special award but her three outfit changes stunned audiences yesterday evening.
But instead of being flanked by her husband comedian Russell Brand on the red carpet, it was a night of girl-power as the star stuck to some of her more famous friends sides, including Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez. And after a heartbreaking acoustic rendition of The One That Got Away - during which she removed her wedding ring - Katy was given a special achievement award for being the first female pop singer to have five No. 1 singles off one album.
However, noticeably absent was Katy's husband, funny man Russell Brand, who recently announced he was set to do a tour of U.S. colleges. The Mail on Sunday's Katie Nicholl reported Katy has confided in musician Tore Nissen, the support act on her California Dreams world tour, that her marriage was in trouble. Publicly, Katy maintains that her marriage is fine, and has even talked about the couple's plans to start a family, but she is believed to be privately telling friends that her marriage is in trouble.
