Hollywood news has learned that RUSSEL BRAND is entitled to about $20 million of KATY PERRY’s money in their divorce… but he doesn’t want any of it!
Russell, whose divorce from pop superstar wife Katy Perry was announced just before New Year’s Eve following a string of breakup rumors over the holidays, reportedly stands to take home over $20 million dollars of Perry’s money… thanks to the fact that the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement.
In the absence of a prenup, everything the couple earns during the time they were married is to be summed up and divided equally… and since Katy earned around $44 million from May 2010 to May 2011, Russell is entitled to half of everything she made… which means he stands to rake in quite a fortune.
But here’s the thing… Russell has no plans of taking even a single cent from Katy. He’s more than happy to take home whatever he earned while they were married and let Katy have all of her hard-earned millions.
Wasn’t that gentlemanly of him? A source tells TMZ:
“This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch (Yiddish for a good person).”
Say what you want about Russell Brand, but we think this proves that he’s a pretty stand-up guy…
