With no pre-nup, Brand could get half of Perry’s fortune in divorce settlement

Russell Brand is set to make up to $31 million from his divorce from wife Katy Perry, according to reports.

The comedian is in line for the huge lump sum in a 50/50 split of the couple’s earnings even after just 14 months of marriage.

Brand, 36, and Perry, 27, didn’t sign a pre-nuptial agreement when they married in October 2010 so under Californian law, he could be entitled to half of her fortune.
