Last Friday, Russell Brand finally
announced he would be divorcing Katy Perry after
rumors of a split spread like wildfire over the internet. Reports that the
couple was in trouble began a few weeks ago and reached a fevered pitch last
week when the pair were caught on camera without their wedding rings and spent
the holidays apart.
Brand filed for divorce last Friday
citing irreconcilable differences. Despite having earlier denied the rumors.
Now, other reports indicate that
Brand stands to gain $20 million when he finalizes his divorce from Perry. The
Chicago Tribune reported that the couple did not enlist a divorce lawyer to
draft a pre-nuptial agreement before they married 14 months ago.
The couple married in a Hindu
ceremony, which has sparked some criticism from Hindu leaders who state the
couple should have taken those vows more seriously.
And under California law he may be
entitled to half of her fortune. Katy is worth an estimated $44 million, though
Brand himself has an estimated worth of $15 million.
When a couple with many assets
decides to end their marriage, it is in their best interests to employ a divorce attorney. They can the couple
negotiate for favorable outcomes in any type of divorce proceeding.
Every couple must have an ally who
will protect their rights and an experienced divorce attorney will be this ally. Their
help will be instrumental to protecting your assets and rights as a parent if
you have children.
