Katy Perry, Russell Brand

Officially Single

7/16/2012 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have officially severed ties -- their divorce became final today.

Russell filed for divorce at the very end of 2011, and the settlement was hashed out quickly, but it takes a full 6 months before a divorce in California can become final. 

We broke the story ... even though there wasn't a prenup, Russell walked away from half of the $44 million fortune that Katy racked up during their 14-month marriage.

Even though they had to wait for a legal divorce, they didn't wait to move on. Both have been seeing other people for months.

Russell was lucky to have Katy.. He's a scrawny gross looking freak. How disgusting of him to take her money when he's the little s*** who cheated on her. C'mon ladies.... what do you see in him?!?!?!

I like them both. It's a shame it didn't work out. I can understand it though. Katy is 10yrs younger, still wants to party and Russell is a recovering drug/alcohol addict, who had to stand buy and watch her party, drink. Luckily they got out of it before there were any children.

Congrats to them on one of the cleanest divorces in Hollywood history.

I think she let a good man get away just to pump her own ego. Maybe he was too old for her, but she should have thought of that before marrying him and breaking his heart. I think he is a real class act to not even ask for any of her money. Not only that, he won't even speak bad of her or gossip about why she dumped him. He is just moving on with his career. He seems to be happening and going places while she is singing her same bubblegum slut pop and wearing her freaky costumes like she is the next Madonna. I think she looks like a corporate tool for the music business.

She has alot of rabid fans for some reason, mostly men it seems. I don't exactly get it myself. I think Russel would have done anything for her but she chose to discredit him by accusing him of maligning her parents with some little jokes.

Maybe she thought he was out to ruin her image, which I think is bizarre anyway. He tweeted her without make-up and that maybe made her mad because she usually wears a ton of it. Maybe she realizes that her parents are big phonies as Christians and wants to keep up the ruse that she abondoned a sincere Christian upbringing to be the slut du jour of the pop scene.

Lost any respect i had for katy perry when she married this complete Loser russell brand. She obviously has very little experience with dating men to go for such an ugly weirdo. Go back to kissing girls Perry.
