Russell Brand has agreed to give Katy Perry their marital home.
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 US$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."
