What a Gent: Russell Brand Doesn’t Want Katy Perry’s Money

Katy Perry

When Katy Perry wed Russell Brand in an elaborate ceremony at the Aman-i-Khas luxury resort in India, adjacent to the tiger sanctuary where he proposed, on October 23, 2010, they pulled out all the stops except one: they never signed a pre-nup.

So many wondered if Brand would go after what the law says is his – 50 percent of what she earned during their marriage. (That’s the law, as crappy as it seems in cases like these.) In Perry’s case, that’d be around $22 million, as Forbes reported that Perry earned approximately $44 million in 2011 from touring, album and singles sales and endorsement deals … far more than Brand earned for his star turn in “Arthur.”

But sources tell People that Brand just isn’t that kind of guy and won’t pursue a penny from his famous former wifey. (We knew we liked him for some reason.)

Brand’s lawyers reported filed finalized divorce papers asking for zero support from Perry on Tuesday. Their divorce will be finalized on June 30 following the mandatory six-month waiting period.
