Russell Brand is About To Get Oprah Rich!
Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry on Friday, but she didn’t let that dampen her New Year’s plans. Just the day after her husband of 14 months filed for a divorce, Katy was seen partying in Hollywood with a mystery man while Russell opted for a secluded night in a London hotel.
Russell released a statement on Friday saying, ‘Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we will remain friends.’ Katy didn’t want to be the one to pull the plug on her marriage due to her religious upbringing, so she begged Russell to be the one to file.
They’re not saying why they decided to end their marriage, but sources are speculating it’s because Russell was jealous that Katy was the bigger star and he despised her partying ways since he gave up that lifestyle years ago. The couple did not sign a prenup when they married, so Russell could be looking at a $30 million divorce payout. Dude is about to be Oprah Rich!
