According to TMZ Russell Brand is entitled to approximately $20 million of Katy Perry’s fortune now brand is saying he will not take a single penny from her. Brand’s lawyer filed the final divorce papers on Tuesday, although the judge will make the divorce official on June 30, because there’s a 6 month waiting period.
Sources are also saying that 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 between May, 2010 and May, 2011 — according to Forbes. The couple married in October, 2010, so Russell could have scored a fortune.
But here’s the deal. As one source put it, “This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell is 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.
It has also been claimed that Russell has set his sights on New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, who bears a striking resemblance to his estranged wife. However, while Zooey is said to be ‘intrigued’ by Russell’s interest in her, the insider added: ‘But she’s heard about his reputation as a womanizer, and isn’t sure whether she’s ready to rush into another relationship so quickly
