Katy Perry & Russell Brand Reach Divorce Settlement

Katy Perry & Russell Brand Reach Divorce Settlement

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have reached a settlement in their divorce.

The 27-year-old pop star and 36-year-old comedian “have entered into a comprehensive written settlement of all issues,” according to court documents filed in L.A. Superior Court, which Katy signed with her name and a happy face.

Though the couple, who split in December, did not sign a prenup, Russell decided to decline their “community property” – 50 percent of what Katy earned during their 14-month marriage, which he was entitled to.

TMZ also reports that Katy is asking the court to legally restore her maiden name to Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson.

    that would be crummy and emasculating on infinity levels to have taken her money + as if he needs it anyways.
    even if she is richer, it’s sort of like what, he she has 20 mill and he has 10? it’s not like he’s in a struggle.

    Why does the media report on this stuff? It’s a private matter that isn’t any of our business. I want to know when a singer I like has music coming out, I like to know if they are coming to my town, hey I will even watch a few interviews, but I don’t think the media belongs in matters such as this. I mean, if the couple just told the press then okay that’s their decision but why do their private lives have to be put on display just because they are in entertainment?

    I would think Russel would be richer than Katy. I mean he’s been in a bunch of big Hollywood movies and was rich even before that because of his book. Either way I don’t think this is a big sacrifice for him…

    @tara: he was famous in Britain before coming to america (i use to see his stand up) he is super talented, and was an incredibly nice guy when i met him

    @tara: if they are reporting that it was russell that could have potentially taken 50% of katy’s money that means it is katey that is richer.

    katy was at fault with this divorce, she is no longer a real christian, she is an attention whore, narcissist as the day is long. russel who is pretty scumbagish, doesn’t compare to the trash that is katy perry the real katy perry not the image she portrays, russel at least had his heart in this marriage, katy didn’t give a shit.

    That’s so decent of him. A+ for Russell.

    I think that Russell and Kate are 2 very confused people.They both really push the envelope,they were married in a Hindu ceremony over in India, their marriage lasted less than a year,etc. It was like watching 2 show business clowns. I feel sorry for them and hope that they can get their act together and move on to healthier relationships.God Bless them.

    I think divorcing Russell is going to be one of Katy Perry’s biggest regrets in life.

  • Jaa

    I have a new found respect for Russell!!

  • kate

    What a pathetic immature girl that is Katy. She signed the papers with a smiley face? Really? Respect ur husband for once in your life.

    It seems to me no matter what the woman always looks bad in a divorce which is sad.
