Russell Brand to Katy Perry

You Can Have the House

4/3/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Russell Brand is one step closer to severing all ties with Katy Perry
Russell Brand
is one step closer to severing all ties with Katy Perry -- because he's surrendered his interest in the house they bought together while they were happily married -- if they were ever really happily married.

TMZ got hold of a quitclaim deed that Russell filed in L.A. ... giving Katy all rights to the $6.5 million house -- lock, stock and barrel.   

Sources tell us ... it's all part of the property settlement agreement between Russell and Katy. 

0402-katy-perry-splashIt's further proof of what Russell said -- that he doesn't want a penny of Katy's money and wants the split to go as amicably as possible ... so far, so good.

It might give him a bit of a pinch of regret at first but the public and industry will look at him favorably in the end. Good for you Russel and keep your fly up.

Russell has always seemed like a great guy; very intelligent, charismatic, witty, and delightful. I can't help but think he deserves a better woman than Katy Perry. She's beautiful, but she's not very bright and it appears as though they lead much different lifestyles.

I just think this guy keeps setting the bar higher and higher for how to take care of things. Props to Russell!

That's probably the house where he caught her in bed with some other guy (or girl). He wants a clean break from her period. These are really clear signs that she did something completely "unforgiveable" to him, and no amount money, no house, no nothing can buy him or hold him back. Bye bye Katy!

I'm guessing that he cheated & wants to look like the good guy before the details come out.

I think he is suffering deeply from being divorced and fighting over her money would just make the pain that much worse. like Russell, and respect him for what he said he would do all along. He took the business out of the marriage and that is rare these days. Russell's being incredibly decent & kind about this breakup, while Katy takes a poke at him in her song "Part of Me". He seems to be the mature one here who doesn't want to inflame the situation.

Russell’s heartbreaking tribute to Amy Winehouse at the time of her death and his dealing with this divorce has been outstanding. Katy Perry showed her true colors when she signed the divorces papers with a smiley face. She appears to be moving on as well without much trouble. They were in two different places in their lives. Her career was exploding and he wanted a more "stay at home - have a family" kind of a thing. I don't think anyone is to blame. And he seems to want to move on peacefully. Now - if her BFF would shut up and not start rumors about Russell cheating on her, everyone could move on.

I am beyond impressed with the way Brand has handled the divorce. Fortunately for him, he married a lady and doesn't have to address ugly untrue media planted rumors and editing in a reality tv series by your soon to be ex wife and mother in law.

Divorce is never easy for anyone. The sooner everything gets settled the easier it will be to move on. I think they genuinely loved each other very deeply, but sometimes personality differences just don't work out.

I think he really loved her. The mistake he made, was he should have married an ADULT person.

In 10 years from now, Brand will be the subject of a 'Where Are They Now' question.

TO: 25. Margo:
"I'm guessing that he cheated & wants to look like the good guy before the details come out."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
He wouldn't file for divorce because HE cheated. He filed for divorce because SHE cheated, and it's my guess that he was so shocked and so broken hearted that he just doesn't want ANYTHING from her, not her $20 million he could have gotten from her, and not the house that she cheated on him in.
Men are entitled to HALF of their wife's estate because HE cheated. Men are ONLY entitled to half of their wife's money because SHE cheated. If men got paid for cheating on their wives there would be a epidemic of wealthy men cheating, hell they'd ALL do it just for the money!

When I first heard these two were getting married, I knew it would not last. Her career is taking off and he will never change his ways.
