Russell Brand - Russell Brand Giving Katy Perry House
Russell Brand is surrendering his $6.5 million marital home to Katy Perry as part of his desire to keep the couple's divorce as amicable as possible.
The British comedian and actor - who filed for divorce from the 'Part of Me' hitmaker in December, just 14 months after they tied the knot - is surrendering his interest in the $6.5 million property the couple bought together while they were happily married.
According to a quitclaim deed acquired by TMZ, the 36-year-old star has given Katy all rights to the luxury Los Angeles mansion.
An insider said: ''It's all part of the property settlement agreed between Russell and Katy.''
The couple didn't sign a prenuptial agreement prior to their marriage in India, meaning Russell is legally entitled to half of Katy's $44 million Fortune.
However, the 'Get Him to the Greek' star has claimed he doesn't want anything from his estranged wife and is keen for their divorce - which will become official on June 30 - to be as amicable as possible.
Despite the split, Russell - who is now dating Nikolett Barabas - insists he is not holding on to any feelings of negativity.
He recently said: ''I'm doing well. You don't need to brush it off if you don't get it on you in the first place.
''I don't have to let anything go. I don't hold on to anything negative. It's the same as zero-ness.
''It's not about letting it go. You can't let go of something you don't hold, you know. It's meaningless, [and] much of our world is predicated on meaninglessness. And I don't do that anymore.''
