Pictured: The moment Russell Brand took off his wedding ring… a month before announcing his split from Katy Perry
They announced their split in December after months of rumours surrounding the state of their marriage.
And now a video has emerged of Russell Brand taking off his wedding ring, just two weeks after his first wedding anniversary with Katy Perry back in November.
Brand posted the video on porn website Nudevista as he began a week-long tour of various universities in America.

In the video, Brand is seen saying: 'I am going to meet people from sororities and fraternities. I don't know what a sorority is except for what I have seen on Nudevista – that they are sort of sex clubs for women.

'A week of revolution and, more importantly, I am going to learn first-hand about sororities.'
Brand is then seen taking his ring off in full view of the camera, before adding: 'I'm just going to place this somewhere very, very safe for the next week.'
Since filing for divorce from Perry on December 30, the British comedian has remained resolutely silent on his Twitter page.
However, estranged wife Perry came forward over the weekend to thank her fans for their support in the difficult times.
She wrote: 'I am so grateful for all the love and support I've had from people around the world. You guys have made my heart happy again.'
Perry also pulled out of what was scheduled to be her first public appearance since the split at the People's Choice Awards, writing her apologies on Twitter.
But new claims have suggested Perry is considering flying into the UK in a bid to resolve things with her former spouse.

No chance of a reconciliation Katy is now said to be planning to fly to the UK to talk to Russell about the possibility of giving things another go
A source told Grazia magazine: 'Katy was absolutely crushed by Russell's decision. She's furious after everything he's done, but still insists there must be a way to reconcile and try to work things out.
'She told Russell that if he'd agreed to marriage counselling, they wouldn't be in this mess and tried to persuade him to fly back to the States and meet her.
'She's now considering jetting to the UK as she's desperate to see him and talk to him.
'She said she can't stand that everything has been done over the phone and says she needs to see him before she can truly accept it's over.'
