Katy Perry & Russell Brand reach divorce settlement, she signs with a happy face

Yesterday, we covered Russell Brand’s refusal to take any of estranged wife Katy Perry’s millions during their current divorce proceedings. Most of you agreed that it was a smart move on Russell’s part regardless of his motivations, and I’m sure that he is looking quite forward to getting on with life without constant reminders of his wife’s cocaine lifestyle. Even though Russell just filed for divorce about six weeks ago, it seems like he and Katy have already been apart longer than they’ve been together. Of course, that has a lot to do with the fact that rumors of the relationship’s demise have been swirling since almost the beginning of their 14-month marriage. They were such a poor match from the very beginning.

Now Russell and Katy have finalized their divorce settlement and all property has been divided accordingly. Thank goodness there were no kids involved although the couple did adopt one cat together, so who knows what direction the poor feline will be headed. Naturally, Katy had to be all showy and “quirky” while signing the papers:

There’s no going back at this point.

Katy Perry, 27, and Russell Brand, 36, have reached a settlement in their divorce, Us Weekly can confirm. British movie star Brand filed for divorce on December 30 citing “irreconcilable differences.”

In court documents filed Tuesday and obtained by Radar Online, Perry and Brand said they “have entered into a comprehensive written settlement of all issues, including, without limitation, with respect to the property to be confirmed or assigned to each party.”

Brand will not be receiving spousal support from Perry, despite not having a pre0nuptial agreement. The “Firework” singer is worth an estimated $70 million, while Brand is valued at $20 million.

The former couple owned four properties in California, New York and London, totaling $15 million. The exes also have three cats: Her Kitty Purry, his Morrissey and, Perry once told Us, “together we got Krusty!”

Perry signed the court documents with a happy face next to her name — a sure sign that she’s ready to put her 14-month marriage behind her.

Indeed, Katy did sign the divorce papers (which you can see at The Mail) with a heart and happy face combo. Of course, that’s her standard autograph these days (and can be observed on many signed items currently on sale at eBay), but I’m sure Katy knew that the cute little smiley would be seen the world round once the papers were released. It’s probably her way of trying to show the world that she doesn’t care about getting divorced. Whatever, Katy.

At any rate, it looks like this (semi-)long nightmare of a marriage is finally over except for the requisite waiting period. Katy and Russell will be officially divorced on June 30. In the meantime, they can both resume their previous lives. He’ll be wearing increasingly ridiculous scarves, and she’ll get back to “partying” even though she never really stopped.

    how old is she again? smiley face on a divorce paper…how mature

    • lisa says:

      She is stuck at being 16

    • Camille says:

      It’s disrespectful and tell a lot about her. She is childish and pathetic.

      • Petunia says:

        It does seem a little disresepectful, yes, especially since Russell very nicely agreed to not go after her fortune. Does she know how “fortune-”ate she is that he didn’t?

        It’s kind of funny, she’s supposedly all Christian but she’s the partier and girl-kisser and the one all happy about the divorce. Kind of makes you wonder about her. Well, she’s just a kid, I guess she’s doing her rebellion routine. But I half expect her to follow in the footsteps of her parents once the rebellion wears thin, getting super-religious and preachy.

      • Trillium says:

        27 is almost 30, not a kid. Time to grow up.

    • sandra says:

      Twat. (I mean Katy of course lol).

  2. texasmom says:

    Poor Russell Brand really needs to figure how to buy flattering pants.

  3. normades says:

    Wow, that’s real mature Katy.

  4. Courtney says:

    She was just happy to get away from that squirrelly man

  5. Capella says:

    I’m over them both. Cannot stand her music, or her hair. And after the failure of Arthur, cannot stand his “acting” any more either.

    Good riddance to both of them. Too bad they didn’t give the money spent on their “nuptials” to charity. I’m sure the money would’ve made some more unfortunate people happier for longer than the marriage lasted.

  6. Lonnie says:

    Is it just me, or has Russell gained a little weight?

    • renee says:


      I noticed it too…

    • perlla says:

      Yes, he’s gained weight back because about a year and a half ago he looked painfully underweight, like his eating disorders had returned. I think he looks like he’s finally returned to a healthy weight and looks good. I’m pretty sure that has something to do with getting his life back.

  7. Monkey Jim says:

    Team Russell!!!

    • Tiffany says:

      Seriously! Her actions just keep making him look classier and classier. A smiley face next to a divorce paper signature? What an immature fool.

  8. brin says:

    Did she skip out of the lawyer’s office?

  9. Zelda says:

    Holy shit. She’s tacky.

    It’s not an autograph you twit, it’s a legal document. Grow up.

  10. Jackie says:

    i guess when you sign your name with a smiley face, maybe you’re not quite ready for marriage.

    ugh, and she has 40 million. another reason to hate capitalism.

    • Lis says:

      (1) Yeah, the smiley face is moronic. Even when children and teenagers do it, let alone grown ups signing divorce papers.

      (2) All the same, I don’t get the hatred and disdain people seem to feel for Perry.

      Her music is good – yeah, I said it – but even if it’s not to your taste, why not just, y’know, not listen to it?

      I’ve always suspected that the internet bandwagon (and it is a bandwagon; there’s nothing edgy about hating Katy Perry) is really about hating the “masses” who like her, and showing off how superior you are.

      If you dislike capitalism (I personally don’t), there are far better reasons than someone working her ass off to make records and concerts that people want to vuluntarily buy.

      • Jackie says:


      • Lis says:



        *curses self*

      • perlla says:

        Such a lame attitude. Why are you attacking people that hate Katy Perry like they can’t think for themselves? Sorry, but the exact opposite is true.

        The only people who like Katy are people who are:

        a) the tone deaf (yes I’m sorry to break it to you but you must be tone deaf because the rest of us get migraines from her shlock garbage being pumped in every store and every radio station 24/7)

        b) 13 year old drunk bimbo gay-for-male-titillation, illiterates-in-stuffed-training-bras AND the emotionally and intellectually stunted, my self-worth emanates solely from my vagina, women that they become

        c) pyscho stalker men who like her c*ck-tease ways that fetishizes a ‘nice’ girl Christian image while at the same time exploiting hard-core imagery mixed with kiddie themes. Just disgusting.

        Sorry again. I think it must be lovely to be able to see Katy Perry as an innocuous pop star, because the rest of us get physically sick when we see her over-exposed tits everywhere.

      • Lis says:


        You’re kind of proving my point.

        And when exactly has she been trying for a “nice girl” “Christian” image?

      • Kim says:

        People dont kike her because she is a hypocrite. She claims to be Christian yet hides it because she knows it doesnt go with her public persona & would lose alot of her fan base. She wrote I kissed a girl simply because she knew it would be controversial and get attention. That isnt an artist its a fame whore. She wanted to be famous BY ANY MEANS. Shes no different than Kim KarTRASHian.

      • perlla says:

        I guess you didn’t see the cover of Rolling Stone she did then? The whole ‘fallen angel’ routine? Okay then. Like I said, it must be great to be you. It’s not elitist to dislike Katy Perry. And actually signing her divorce papers with a smiley face and a heart like she’s in middle school? kind of proves everyone else’s point. You must really love Zooey “i have baby farm animals on my cheques b*tch Deschanel.

      • Lis says:


        “It’s not elitist to dislike Katy Perry.”


        But it is elitist – in the worst possible sense of the word – to use that to attack her fans. Or the people you presume are her fans.

        As – *cough* – you yourself did in the comments.

    • Sasha says:

      She’s worth 70 million, not 40. You might want to try honing the old reading comp. skills before venturing into economics.

      And Perry’s money isn’t the result of capitalism — it is a result of our society worshiping celebs & athletes to a cult-like degree.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        Not sure, but they might be referring to the amount of money she made while they were together. I did hear that she made 40 mill while they were married.

      • mssnarnd says:

        You’re the one who is correct, ZigZagZoey.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        Which in and of itself is a result of capitalism. Ain’t start in Cuba making that type of money for entertainment which is why they come over here. Just saying.

        “And Perry’s money isn’t the result of capitalism — it is a result of our society worshiping celebs & athletes to a cult-like degree.”

      • Sasha says:

        @mssnarnd: No, I’m the correct one here — the OP wrote “She HAS 40 million.” This very article states her net worth is 70 million. Now, maybe the OP meant to write (as zigzag opines) that she earned 40 million during the course of their marriage but that is NOT what “she HAS 40 million” means. Seriously, reading is fundamental.

        @theOriginalVictoria: re: “no stars in Cuba have that kind of money” — um, honey, what part of OUR society don’t you understand & how, EXACTLY do you think Cuba is a part of OUR society? And, it still isn’t related to capitalism — “stars” in communist countries enjoy a higher standard of living than the average Joe in those countries do – the actual amount of $$ in their bank accounts are relative to the standard of living in those countries so the point you were attempting to make by ignoring a vital part of my sentence (re: “OUR society”) is STILL incorrect.

        Please don’t quit your day jobs y’all.

  11. Agnes says:

    That’s SO tacky of her! What is she, an immature twelve year old? Ugh. Show some respect for your ex, the legal process, and the Court.

  12. mln76 says:

    Wow what an insipid and vacant thing to do.

  13. Paloma says:

    I think she is nuts.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    She seems stunted and stuck at age 14.

  15. Tiffany27 says:

    God she’s dumb.

  16. lucy2 says:

    The photo of him in flip flops in the airport will haunt my dreams. Ew.

  17. Bite me says:

    So freaking childish

  18. mssnarnd says:

    GO ADELE!!

    Sorry, some unabashed support for her Grammy nods!

    (happy face)

  19. nina says:

    She’s harmless as a celebrity, but really grating. Right down to her signature even.

  20. Kim says:

    The happy face shows her immaturity and that she should never have gotten married in the first place. She is a sell out, moron.

  21. Julie says:

    whats worth than that is guys wearing flip flops

  22. Sasha says:

    Unless this truly is a *very* amicable divorce and he’s like ‘duude, no hard feelings!’, then the smiley face is pretty insensitive. You would have thought she could have signed it properly. If I were Russel the stupid smiley face signature would hurt my feelings.. although maybe this illustrates why he’s divorcing her in the first place?? Poor Russ. I hope he shags around to his hearts content and then find a nice non-celeb to really settle down with.

  23. Lauren says:

    Russell looks healthier since he got away from Katie. I think there is something mentally deficient about her. Katies family is shameless & strange beyond words.

    • Petunia says:

      Aren’t they, though? Their recent rants were bizarre. And unsettling. I’m guessing that Katie is probably cut of the same cloth and once she gets her fill of show biz, fame and money, she’ll show that side, very definitely.

  24. Common Sense says:

    Happy face really? Another emotionally stunted kid from an evangelical home. She’s just now getting to act like a 12 yr old.
    Lose the childishness and for God’s sake loose the freakish hair color.

  25. Teevy says:

    True Lis. Those were some majorly bitchy judgy comments from perlla. But I don’t really think it’s capitalism thought since there’s nothing free market about the way her music is marketed. But whatever. I love her slut anthems and her, you know, her whole attitude. Why can’t you be 30 and talk like a 13 year old on your twitter? Right? Nothing to hate there. I also really liked when she shot whip cream out her tits and dressed up like a girl scout. And then a really loser geeky 13 year old that got drunk and then was popular and randomly f*cked the quarterback in her own bedroom. What about when she was a donkey that fell from space and wanted to be a victim. Fine fresh fierce? I’d love to pet her kitty. I love her anti-semitic dad too. He’s awesome.

  26. Moi says:

    Kudos to Rusty. He is a true gentleman.

  27. no thanks says:

    i would use a smiley face too if i got to keep 20 million dollars…

  28. f says:

    I’m gonna go ahead and guess that Teevy is being totally sarcastic because of Lis whose acting all ‘I don’t get the Katy Perry hate’. Like seriously? What’s there to like about her? She’s vile and after hearing about her party habits and after she was rubbing her ability to get smashed in Russell’s face when his friend died, she just sickens me.

    The smily face is either being really trite about the whole divorce and marriage or maybe they weren’t even married for real to begin with and it was just a stunt. In that case shame on Russell for wasting two years of his life on this trash charade. He’s seems like a nice guy, I hope he finds himself a good partner.

  29. Tastykakes says:

    “together we got Krusty!”

    Thanks for that image.

  30. Camille (The original) says:

    She is ridiculous. Russell did well to get out when he did. They were such an odd couple.

  31. Hootie Hoo says:

    Total mismatch from the start. She seems vapid and incredibly immature. Russell is actually a very articulate and intelligent man. I can see his attraction only being physical and that just gets old after a few months.

  32. blc says:

    i think signing her divorce papers with a smiley face is proof enough that she was not mature enough to be married in the first place

  33. J O'C says:

    “I’m an idiot!!”

    :) <3

  34. kristiner says:

    Um, that “at The Mail” link goes back to Us Weekly.

    There’s already a link to Us Weekly under the Us Magazine link.

    Only celebs can be divorced in a McSecond. Takes the rest of the world until July.

  35. Lola says:

    Russell Brand is so much more likeable. & funny. ‘Nuf said

  36. d says:

    All I get is that Russell seems extremely relieved and happy to finally be free of that marriage, and the whole not wanting her money was about being completely and utterly free of Katy and her life and everything to do with her, for various reasons. I suspect that much of what she’s about is toxic, exhausting, and joyless. Kudos to him for getting out. Ever since his essay after Amy Winehouse’s death, and looking so embarrassed about Katy’s antics at that awards show, I’ve been firmly on his side.

  37. lsdippary says:

    she could have big legal trouble soon – watch her the one that got away video (- on mute)- then find the trailer for rock of ages film that russell is in that has not even been released, and tell me which scene she directly stole and copied after julianne . its too easy to find -can’t believe the entertainment lawyers haven’t said anything – and she did it so poorly

  38. Assistantrachel says:

    What a useless, vapid, twit. He is SO much better off without her!
