Russell Brand filed for divorce from songstress Katy Perry and reportedly might get $20 million from Ms. Perry’s, ahem, huge warchest. Cracks in the marriage most likely started when he saw Ms. Perry’s infamously risqué appearance on “Sesame Street” and did a duet with Elmo. Mr. Brand probably thought to himself, “Cor blimey. Looks like I’m not the only furry creature that can ‘sing’ and act. And at least Elmo has the common sense to stay on ‘Sesame Street’ and not leave it to do bloody rehashed rubbish like ‘Arthur.’”
However, because the couple didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, and thanks to California’s divorce laws, Mr. Brand is entitled to half of Ms. Perry’s assets; a decree that makes him a free-to-date fella. Yes, time will tell if Mr. Brand ever gets the right one—the right one being Ms. Perry’s right bra cup that shot out whipped cream in her “California Gurls” video.
