Russell Brand is entitled to about $20 million of Katy Perry’s money, but he says he doesn’t want a penny!
As Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s brief marriage comes to a wrap, Katy can rest easy. Russell apparently doesn’t want any of her money, even though he’s entitled to nearly $20 million.
Russell’s lawyers filed final divorce papers on Tuesday, but the couple have to wait 6 months before a judge will sign off on it. Sources tell TMZ Russell and Katy did not sign a prenup (seriously, who does that anymore!?). Because there was no prenup, Russell is entitled to half of all Katy’s earnings during their 14-month marriage. Katy made a TON of money during that time (around $44 million) because she was at the height of her California Dreams tour.
But here’s the deal. As one source put it, “This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch (Yiddish for a good person).” He doesn’t want Katy’s money. He’s happy to walk away with the money he earned — which is far less than what Katy raked in.
