Katy Perry & Russell Brand's Divorce Settlement: All the Details

The couple, who announced their split Dec. 30, have officially filed divorce papers in what appears to be an amicable split

The court papers have been signed and, after a six-month waiting period, the 14-month marriage between one of Hollywood's more interesting couples will officially be over. Katy Perry and Russell Brand -- who announced their split Dec. 30 -- have reached a "comprehensive written settlement of all issues" in their divorce, according to documents filed Tuesday with the Los Angeles Superior Court. And, judging by the smiley face Perry, 27, included when putting her John Hancock on the papers, it looks to be an amicable parting of ways.

British comic Brand, 36, also appears to bear his "Firework"-singing ex no ill will: In his papers, he checked the boxes saying that both sides "agree this cause may be decided as an uncontested matter," and waived the their right to a trial.

In Perry's papers, the main issue was the distribution of their property. She also asked that the courts not be involved in awarding Brand with spousal support. That ties in to the fact that the duo did not sign a prenuptial agreement which, under California law, means that Brand is entitled to half of Perry's earnings during the time of their marriage. But, as we reported Wednesday, sources have confirmed that Brand will not be asking Perry for one cent of her hard-earned cash. That's a very admirable move on Brand's part, considering he stood to make as much as $20 million in the settlement.

"This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch," a source tells TMZ. "He doesn't want Katy's money. He's happy to walk away with the money he earned -- which is far less than what Katy raked in."

And that's pretty much exactly what Brand said after he and Perry first got hitched. At the time, he acknowledged that they weren't signing a prenup because they wanted to have as normal a marriage as possible.

"We just love each other, and we want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it very normal," Brand said in October 2010. "It ain't about selling the pictures; it ain't about doing the prenup."

According to the documents, Perry has also filed to have her legal name restored to Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson. That's a good name -- maybe even one Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow would like?
