A truly amicable Hollywood divorce is a rare occurrence, but it looks like Russell Brand intends to pull one off. After filing for divorce from popstar Katy Perry in December, the British comedian has submitted the final paperwork to the courts. According to TMZ, he is keeping his hands off his ex-to-be’s enormous fortune.
When the couple married in 2010, they didn’t sign a prenup, which means that everything they earned during the marriage could be split in two. During those 14 months, Katy raked in waaaaay more than her hubby — so much so that he would have been left with $20 million if he’d exercised his community property rights.
Russell’s hardly living in poverty, but it still couldn’t have been easy to walk away from that much money. Hats off to him for doing such a decent thing. Maybe Katy will even start following him on Twitter again one day!
