Now that Russell Brand, 36, has filed for divorce from Katy Perry, 27, citing “irreconcilable differences,” is he prepared to take her to the cleaners?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Katy is worth far more than Russell: about $55 million to his $15 million. (She raked in $45 million in album sales alone in 2011.)

Katy could stand to lose a huge chuck o’ change in court — because per The Daily Mail, she didn’t sign a prenup.

No matter what happens post-split, it’s still unclear why the marriage fell apart. Some sources claim that Russell, who’s stayed sober since his wayward early years, grew exasperated with Katy’s hard partying, but others have cited Katy’s frustration with Russell’s lack of respect for her evangelical Christian upbringing.

No matter, the British comedian and pop mega-star are dunzo. In an official statement, Russell said, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
