Russell Brand’s and Katy Perry’s eccentric marriage was scrutinized by the media from the moment they said “I do” to each other in 2010. Their divorce was talked about even more and made the papers much more than Brand’s award-winning skills as a comedian. The subject of much of the gossip wasn’t that their fancy Hollywood marriage lasted less than 2 years, but because Brand refused to take a single dime from Katy Perry’s millions.
According to official reports, the 29 year old Dark Horse hit maker earned $44 million just between 2010 and 2011. Because they didn’t have a prenuptial agreement Brand had the chance to walk away with half of the $44 million Katy had made during their marriage. However, he decided to leave her money alone. TMZ reported their divorce as being “amicable”. The British comedian told the media that he will always hold his ex-wife dear and adore her, even though their marriage is over.
