So we all have had a bit of time to soak in the fact that Russell Brand and Katy Perry are getting a divorce. It’s done but now comes the dreaded paperwork and you know, for gold diggers, the fun part.
What I find interesting about Brand and Perry is that they didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement and with that being said, Brand could get a whopping TWENTY freakin’ million dollars. But get this…he doesn’t want it. Not a penny. Apparently the handful of nights burying his bearded mugshot into Perry’s chi-chis was enough for him.
TMZ is reporting that Russell’s lawyer
filed final divorce papers Tuesday … although the judge will make the divorce official on June 30, because there’s a 6 month waiting period.
Informed sources tell TMZ … Russell and Katy did NOT have a prenup. As a result, everything they earned during their 14-month marriage is community property — which means they’re each entitled to 50% of the pot.
Katy made $44 million between May, 2010 and May, 2011 — according to Forbes. The couple married in October, 2010, so Russell could have scored a fortune if he exercised his community property rights.
But Russell doesn’t want Katy’s money and is happy to walk away without a paycheck.
Let me just say that it is refreshing to see a divorce not get ugly. Or perhaps Russell just figures that once he releases his tell-all book that he’ll get his hefty paycheck that way?
At any rate, Brand…we salute you!
