- Twitter: Russell Brand and Katy Perry
Katy Perry has been accused of mocking her marriage to Russell Brand after signing her final divorce papers with a smiley face.
On Wednesday The Christian Post reported that 36-year-old Brand, who filed for divorce in Dec. 2011, had filed final divorce papers and refused to receive spousal support from Perry.
"The parties have entered into a comprehensive written settlement of all issues, including, without limitation, with respect to the property to be confirmed or assigned to each party," The court documents state.
The British comedian refused to pursue 50 percent of Perry's estimated $40 million fortune to which he was legally entitled, which sources suggest left Perry feeling relieved, according to Daily Mail.
Perry, 27, who was the higher earner during the marriage, did not have a prenuptial agreement with Brand and therefore under California law, the couple was legally obligated to split their assets in half, although Brand refused the money.
Brand's decision to opt for an amicable divorce is believed to have been the reason that Perry signed the divorce papers with a smiley face, which some critics say is a symbol of her gratitude.
While Brand is being hailed as "noble" for rejecting spousal support, Twitter fans have accused his soon to be ex-wife of not taking the matter seriously.
"If I was Russell Brand, I'd see Katy Perry signed the divorce papers with a SMILEY FACE and think I'd had a lucky escape from such idiocy," Jude Elliott-Jones tweeted.
"Katy Perry signed her divorce papers with a smiley face - is that really necessary?!" Lindsay Marett Leoni tweeted.
The couple, who married in Oct. 2010, will be divorced six months from now, which is standard procedure under California law and there are not likely to be any disputes between the pair.
Brand cited "irreconcilable differences" in his divorce filing, but insisted that there are no ill feelings between himself and Perry.
"Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends," Brand said in a statement shortly after the filing.
