Katy Perry Keeps Her Millions As She And Russell Brand Divorce

Their marriage may have ended, but at least their divorce is amicable.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have finally settled their issues and split their assets, with the singer keeping her substantially higher earnings. The pair have reached a 'comprehensive written settlement.'

The 26-year-old singer stood to lose a lot of money had her ex been greedier. Because they didn't sign a pre-nup, he would have been legally entitled to half of her earnings.

However, she's not only keeping all of the money she made during her marriage, but she's legally returned to her maiden name.

According to the documents filed yesterday at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Perry is now Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson once again.

The way the situation turned out must have made The One That Got Away singer ecstatic, given that she signed the paperwork with her trademark smiley face signature.

In addition to keeping her money and her identity, the agreement also covers distribution of their property.

Perry's papers say, and she asks that the court not be involved in awarding spousal support to Brand.

In the paperwork filed by Brand, 36, he checked a box saying that both parties 'agree this cause may be decided as an uncontested matter' and says they have waived their rights to a trial.

The couple tied the knot in October 2010 and were taking some time apart with Brand blindsided his wife by filing for divorce in late December.
