And then it was over: Russell Brand and Katy Perry reached a settlement on their divorce yesterday. What did the two agree to regarding their split, and where did all their money end up going since the two got married without any kind of prenuptial agreement? Read on for all the details.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand reached a “comprehensive written settlement of all issues,” according to a filing Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The singer seeks to legally restore her maiden name to Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson.

The comedian’s paperwork noted that both sides “agree this cause may be decided as an uncontested matter” and they waive their rights to a trial.

Though they were married in 2010 without a prenuptial agreement, Brand is not asking for any money from Katy Perry, even though he is legally entitled to half of the money she earned while they were married! Perry also asked that any obligation to pay Brand spousal support be terminated.

Russell Brand first filed for divorce from Katy Perry at the very end of last year. He told People in a statement of his split from the singer:

Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.

Katy will be performing at the GRAMMY Awards this upcoming Sunday, along with Adele and Chris Brown, among others.

Can you believe that Russell Brand and Katy Perry have managed to pull of an amicable divorce, even without a prenuptial agreement?
