As sad as it was to see this marriage deteriorate, we're very glad that they've kept to their word!
Although Katy Perry and Russell Brand never signed a pre-nuptial agreement before their marriage, and the comedian was entitled to quite a chunk of change ($20 million to be exact!) from her if he wanted spousal support, he chose not to - and sources close to the pair claim that they never had any intention of going after the other's money in the event of divorce!
Insiders reveal that they both were comfortable with each other's stances on money, and knew that even if their relationship didn't work out, they would never make it an ugly split!
The source explains:
"Russell is a very simple person who doesn’t need much to make him happy. He would never take money that [Katy] earned. That’s not Russell. And if it was the other way around, Katy wouldn’t have taken it either. They respect each other too much."
Goodness gracious, these two are a breath of fresh air in this town!
Way to keep an already unpleasant situation as amicable and classy as possible, guys!
All the best moving forward!
