“I want to make our wedding just about me and her loving each other. We want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it normal. It ain’t about selling the pictures, it ain’t about doing no prenup.”
That’s what Russell Brand had to say back in October 2010, just days before he wed Katy Perry in an extravagant ceremony in India. Now, of course, it seems like Brand lucked out, at least financially. Last Friday, the comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry (who didn’t want to file herself and offend her extremely religious parents) and the couples’ assets are up for grabs. Brand apparently stands to make, gulp, an estimated $20 million from the pop star’s fortune because, under California law, the state’s community property clause splits money and property acquired during the union 50/50 when there isn’t a prenup. Someone should have told Katy that rich “California Girls” cover their assets before walking down the aisle. It remains to be seen, of course, how this will actually play out in court and whether Brand will actually go for “his” half of Katy’s fortune. [Hollywood Life]
After the jump, more celebs who got married sans prenups. Spoiler alert: Most of their stories don’t end so well.
RIP, marriage: Russell Brand and Katy Perry are dunzo.
Russell Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconciable differences,” and released the following statement: “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
The couple married in October 2010, but rumors of a rocky, argument-fueled relationship have long dogged them. They raised eyebrows by spending Christmas this year apart: Russell in England with his friends, Katy in Hawaii with her friends. Both were photographed without wedding rings.
I’m sorry to see these two split … but I’m eager to see what the world looks like with both Rihanna and Katy Perry single and on the prowl! [TMZ] Keep reading »
Katy Perry, dare I say it, is rocking a rather subtle looking new ‘do. The pop star has bleached away most of the hot pink hair she’s been wearing for the last few months in favor of a white blonde bob with a powder pink hue. I think the look is totally sleek and sophisticated, but still very her. I like! What say you? (Oh, and despite the rumors, it seems that her and hubby Russell Brand are doing a-okay. Glad to hear/see it!)
Contrary to rumors, Katy Perry and Russell Brand don’t appear to be getting divorced, at least if you believe the old adage, “The couple that gets inked together, stays together.” (What? People don’t say that?) Katy and Russell recently stopped by a tattoo parlor in LA and got new tattoos — she got a peppermint inked on her foot, while Russell got the badge for his favorite soccer (excuse me, football) team. Their tattoo artist also braved going under the gun at Katy’s hand, letting her ink his calf with the same peppermint. I thought it was illegal for people without a license to tattoo? Eh, whatever, she seems to have done a decent job. Check out a bunch more photos over at TMZ.
