Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand didn’t sign a pre-nuptial agreement when they married so under Californian law, he could be entitled to half of her fortune! Brand is in line for a huge lump sum in a 50/50 split of the couple’s earnings even after just 14 months of marriage. Hit the jump to find out how much he will likely receive!!

Capri S.

A whopping $31 Million!!

Brand announced on Friday that the couple’s marriage was over after they spent Christmas apart and his lawyers filed divorce papers at Los Angeles Superior Court citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the pair who met at the MTV Music Awards in 2009.
Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday outside The Savoy Hotel in London yesterday, he said: ‘I’m doing good. Everything is going to be better next year.’

According to Forbes Magazine, Perry is worth $30M, a fortune that industry insiders said has rocked recently to at least $55M due to her non-stop touring and commercial ventures.
Brand, in contrast, has a net worth of about $20M from his stand-up tours and a string of hit movies including Get Him To The Greek and the remake of the Dudley Moore film Arthur.

A former aide of the pair told the paper: ‘I believe the filing of this divorce was as childish as many of their arguments. It was a case of “I’m dumping you before you can dump me”, a total pride thing.
‘I don’t think Russell liked that Katy was the bigger star. He’d pick her to pieces over the most trivial things.’
