Fourteen months of marriage to Katy Perry will most likely net Russell Brand a huge payday of more than $20 million dollars.
Brand filed for divorce from the singer last Friday citing irreconcilable differences. According to the New York Daily News there was no pre-nup signed when they got married which means under California law the couple must split their earnings 50/50.
Brand’s net worth is said to be in the $15 million dollar range, while Perry’s is reported to be at least $45 million or more.
According to TMZ, Perry asked Russell to file the divorce papers so she wouldn’t upset her evangelical Christian parents.
The soon to be ex-couple have no kids.
