Russell Brand Could Net $20 Million in Divorce From Katy Perry


Last Friday, Russell Brand finally announced he would be divorcing Katy Perry after
rumors of a split spread like wildfire over the internet. Reports that the  couple was in trouble began a few weeks ago and reached a fevered pitch last week when the pair were caught on camera without their wedding rings and spent  the holidays apart.

Brand filed for divorce last Friday citing irreconcilable differences. Despite having earlier denied the rumors.

Now, other reports indicate that  Brand stands to gain $20 million when he finalizes his divorce from Perry. The Chicago Tribune reported that the couple did not enlist a divorce lawyer to draft a pre-nuptial agreement before they married 14 months ago.

The couple married in a Hindu  ceremony, which has sparked some criticism from Hindu leaders who state the  couple should have taken those vows more seriously.

And under California law he may be entitled to half of her fortune. Katy is worth an estimated $44 million, though  Brand himself has an estimated worth of $15 million.
