Katy Perry signs divorce papers

Their marriage may have ended, but at least their divorce is amicable.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have finally settled their issues and split their assets, with the singer keeping her substantially higher earnings.

According to TMZ.com, the pair have reached a ‘comprehensive written settlement.’

And in court papers which have emerged, the singer has signed the legal documents ending with an upbeat ‘smiley face.’

According to Forbes he is worth a relatively small £4million in comparison to the Firework singer’s £28 million fortune.

The couple didn’t sign a pre-nup, and as such the British comic was legally legally entitled to half of her earnings.

And had Brand made a claim, Perry stood to lose a significant amount of her assets.

However, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star waived any claim to the money the Teenage Dream singer made during her marriage.

According to the documents filed yesterday at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Perry is now Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson once again.

The way the situation turned out must have made the singer ecstatic, given that she signed the paperwork with her trademark smiley face signature.

In addition to keeping her money and her identity, the agreement also covers distribution of their property.

Perry’s papers say, and she asks that the court not be involved in awarding spousal support to Brand.

In the paperwork filed by Brand, 36, he checked a box saying that both parties ‘agree this cause may be decided as an uncontested matter’ and says they have waived their rights to a trial.

The couple tied the knot in October 2010 and were taking some time apart with Brand blindsided his wife by filing for divorce in late December.

However, a few cryptic tweets posted earlier in the week might give some indication that the comedian doesn’t have much to laugh about at the moment.

‘We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them’ he wrote, citing a quote by Albert Einstein. He added: ‘What a twerp.’

A day earlier, he posted: ‘They say ignorance is bliss, but how would they know?’
