Russell Brand Doesn't Want Katy Perry's Money
Russell Brand is entitled to $20 million of Katy Perry's fortune but he will not take a single penny of it.
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.
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 according to Forbes. The couple married in October, 2010, so Russell could have scored a fortune if he exercised his community property rights.
This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a 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.
So what do you think the real story behind the break up is? Makes you wonder
