[photogallerylink id=144358 align=left]It seems the drama behind the Russell Brand/ Katy Perry split is being minimized in every possible way. Though the couple split up back in December, they are trying to make the break as painless as possible for one another.
For Russell Brand, that apparently means not taking the $20 million he’s legally entitled to by California law and them never signing a pre-nuptial.
According to TMZ, the final divorce papers have been filed with the court, though it won’t be official until June 30th. California law says that when a couple gets divorced that each party gets 50% of their total earnings together. While Brand is worth about 6 million, Katy made 44 million last year alone. Russell could stand to be a big winner in this awful situation but has preferred to bow out gracefully than take Katy’s money.
A source close to the couple claims “This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch [Yiddish for a good person].”
Well it seems so. Besides Katy unfollowing Russell on Twitter (you know you’ve done worse to your Exes) this has been a clean break. We obviously hope that both of these kids get back on their feet and back into the swing of things.
Katy is repackaging and adding to her stellar album Teenage Dream to release The Complete Confection and Russell is reportedly working on his memoir. Seems they both a have a lot more time to kill these days.
