Russell Brand Files for Divorce from Pop Singer Katy Perry

By Sheryl Rentz on January 5, 2012

Though rumors have been circulating for months that the marriage of Katy Perry and Russell Brand has been rocky, most were still surprised when Brand officially filed for divorce from the 27-year-old pop star after 14 months of marriage on December 30. The divorce papers filed by Brand’s lawyers at Los Angeles Superior Court cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, according to ABC News. The first public signs of difficulty in the relationship came around Christmas when the two were spotted thousands of miles apart; Brand was with family in Britain and Perry was spotted in Hawaii.

Brand released a statement Friday announcing the divorce and says this about his soon-to-be-ex-wife: “I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”

Brand, a British comedian and actor, may seek to gain a large amount of Perry’s estimated $44 million fortune. It is reported that the former twosome did not sign a prenuptial agreement before their lavish October 2010 wedding in India, and under California law, a couple must split their earnings 50/50 without a prenuptial agreement. The projected $20 million divorce payout would potentially out-value Brand, who is estimated to have a personal $15 million fortune.

Making the decision to end a marriage and file for divorce is very difficult, but when the divorce involves a high profile couple that is in the public eye, it can be even more challenging trying to cope with the split and keep the intimate details private. The Pennsylvania high profile divorce attorney Sheryl R. Rentz has experience helping public figures that have made the decision to divorce and promises the utmost discretion while providing exceptional legal counsel.
