Oh dear. This could get VERY ugly!
Last week's shocking announcement that Russell Brand has decided to divorce Katy Perry is being made all the more scandalous as apparently, the couple DID NOT sign a pre-nuptial agreement before they got hitched.
Now, we're not completely sure if this is true or not, but we're taking the information straight from the horses mouth, in a manner of speaking. Back before their wedding. Russell told New York Magazine that he and Katy wanted to keep things "normal," meaning the wouldn't be "selling the pictures, ain't doing no prenup." They never did sell any pictures — so maybe they made good on both promises!
But what does this mean for them? Californian law states that without a pre-nuptial agreement, the pair must split their wealth and assets 50/50. Katy is reportedly worth $40 million; Russell, $6 million to $8 million. You don't need a calculator to do the math: Katy is BONED!
Things are going to get VERY MESSY from here on out!
