Russell Brand may get $20 million of Katy Perry’s fortune in divorce if no pre-nup
Forbes estimated Perry's wealth to be more than $40 million, but it may be more

Russell Brand may be losing a bride, but he reportedly could be raking in some major money by ending his marriage to Katy Perry.

The 36-year-old told New York Magazine last year that the couple did not sign a pre-nup, which could mean he’s entitled to half of Perry’s millions.

According to California law, the couple — who wed there in October 2010 — must split their earnings 50/50.

That could potentially score Brand at least $20 million. According to Forbes, the 27-year-old “Fireworks” singer is worth at least $44 million, but some reports suggest it could be more.

Brand is reportedly estimated to be worth around $15 million.

The couple, who surprised fans when they announced Friday they were getting divorced, had spent Christmas apart amid rumors of relentless fighting.

The pair’s constant bickering was “getting worse,” which led to the split, a source told Us Weekly in December.

Brand submitted the divorce papers in Los Angeles, reportedly at the request of Perry, who did not want to upset her religious parents.

The superstar couple wed last October, and have been fighting off rumors of marital problems in the past few months. Earlier this month, the British comedian debunked reports about any problems in their marriage on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"Being famous is like a little bit of you is taken away and goes off and lives on its own and does what it wants," Brand told the talk show host. "I wish it would do more interesting things.

"I'm maried to Katy... Perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge. I'm still alive."

Despite the sad turn of events, Brand appears to be trying to stay positive.

"I'm doing good. Everything is going to be better next year," he told London’s Daily Star.
