Russell Brand: It’s Cool, Katy, Keep Your 20 Mil
Apparently, that’s exactly what Russell has told his estranged wife, Katy Perry, when he had his lawyer file final divorce papers yesterday — though the divorce won’t actually be finalized until June 30th, due to a six month waiting period.
And that twenty million is no joke. Forbes mag reported that Katy Perry raked in a whopping $44 million from May of 2010 to May of 2011. Due to the fact that Katy and Russell’s was a whirlwind romance turned marriage, neither of them thought to draw up that little thing called a prenup. Because of this, Russell is entitled to an astounding twenty million dollars per the community property rights of marriage.
According to a close source, ‘This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch (Yiddish for a good person).’ Russell says he doesn’t want a dime from Katy — which is either pretty freakin’ chivalrous… or pretty damn stupid. What do you think?
