Katy & Russell

No Prenup, No Regrets

2/11/2012 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry and Russell Brand never entertained the idea of signing a prenup
Katy Perry
and Russell Brand never entertained the idea of signing a prenup -- and if they could do it all over again ... they wouldn't have changed a thing, sources close to the couple tell TMZ.

According to sources, Katy and Russell's marriage happened so fast, they never really had the opportunity to summon their lawyers and hash out a prenup ... nor did either really believe they needed one.

We’re told both felt comfortable one wouldn’t screw the other in the event of a divorce -- they both knew where the other person stood on money, life, religion ... everything.

TMZ broke the story ... Russell refused to accept $20 million of Katy's money he was entitled to as part of the divorce -- exactly half the money she made during the course of their marriage.

Sources tell us, Russell was never a materialistic person and never spent much -- he never got into entertainment for the money.

As one source put it, "Russell is a very simple person who doesn’t need much to make him happy."

The source adds, “He would never take money that [Katy] earned. That’s not Russell. And if it was the other way around, Katy wouldn’t have taken it either. They respect each other too much."

Where is Hollywood and what have you done with it?!?!

No, Russell Brand would have become too godly for mere mortal men to behold...playing with Katy's boobs for a year AND getting paid $20 million for it.

I believe they loved each other very much. However we may never know what really happened...he appeared very sad after filing for divorce, someone who perhaps still loved his wife.
I respect him for doing the right thing and NOT taking half her earned income....20 million...not many men or women out there that would do the same I'm afraid.

There are very few things one can have written on ones tombstone that would be more epic then "played with Katy Perry's boobs and got paid $20 million" maybe "cured cancer" but even there I'm not sure which is more epic.

Roland,

Elmo on Sesame Street could have had fun playing with Katy and her wonderful ta tas if he'd slowed down enough so that Katy could catch him. Elmo blew it. :)

I know if I was Elmo I'd be HOT and never cold for Katy every time I was in the room with her.

Too bad the kids watching Sesame Street never got to see this song on the show because of a bunch of prudish parents out there. Katy was showing too much boobage. It was ridiculous.

Well for all the Russell Brand haters it shows you up. What class and dignity in this day and age to walk away from so much money. Everyone hating Russell yet what about your own Nick Lachey who is American took the money and several others. Ahh the english so much more class all round.

I under estimated Russell Brand ... he is a stand up guy!!! He and Katy Perry were only married for a short time but under the law he is entitled to half of her hard earned money. There are lots of slime ball guys out there who would have taken her money in a heart beat and ran. I just hope for her sake, that she's a little more cautious if she ever decideds to marry again. Her next suitor may not be so decent and nice.
