Katy Perry and Russell Brand are one of our favourite showbiz-couple-types, so it saddens us more than when we ran out of cake in the office to hear the news that they're said to be considering a trial separation.

Apparently, the pair seem to have ever-conflicting work schedules, and apparently haven't seen each other properly for months.

Heat magazine are reporting that over the past six months Katy and Russ have only spent four days together.

Four days in six months! That's about as often as we consider joining the gym and believe us, it's only a fleeting fancy.

In Heat magazine, Katy's said to have told a friend that she and Russ are "thinking of taking a break from our marriage", and that she's "worried it could be the end of the road."

Her friends told heat that Katy's said "It would be heartbreaking if we didn't make it to our first wedding aniversary, but our situation is pretty bad."

The couple have recently bought a swanky mansion in LA, but due to their hectic work schedules it's said that they won't actually get to spend much time there together.

"Katy has old-fashioned values and she's devastated that her marriage isn't what she thought it would be," says the mate.

So are we! A lot of this may just be hearsay and hoohah (journalistic terms), but Russ and Katy do seem to always be on opposite sides of the world, so we really hope there's no truth in this and that they can make it work.

Agh!

What do you guys make of it all? Are Heat magazine telling the truth?

Update - Katy has since Tweeted:
Just cause we don't flaunt our relationship doesn't mean there's something wrong w/it. Privacy is our luxury.

So we're taking this as nothing is wrong then? Yaaaay!
