Opening up about his unsuccessful union, Russell Brand has blamed distance and busy schedules for his failed marriage to pop star Katy Perry.

The couple tied the knot in India in October 2010 and the relationship was persistently dogged by split rumors until Perry filed papers to end their coupledom last December.

Their divorce was officially finalized on Monday and on Wednesday the newly single comedian offered new insight into their marital troubles during an interview with Howard Stern.

Of the reason behind the failed go at marital bliss, Russell dished, "I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other... We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn't we worked it out... It was a lovely relationship... it mostly didn't work for practical reasons."
