ABC says Russell Brand could get $20 million of Katy Perry's money




Katy Perry and Russell Brand may be keeping mum on their divorce, but that won't keep people from speculating about happens next. Like when ABC News says Russell could get as much as $20 million from Perry because they didn't sign a pre-nuptial agreement.

The network has been spouting that because of California law entitling a spouse to half an ex's loot, Brand could clean up in a settlement. They cite a Forbes article saying Perry is worth about $44 million. So that means a payday for Brand, right? Well ...

Let's not forget both sides have been saying this is an amicable split, and the only reason Brand was the one who filed is because Katy didn't want to offend her evangelical Christian parents, however that logic works. Knowing those two, they're probably just working on a tell-all book they can sell and split the proceeds, anyway.
