(CBS) Russell Brand is entitled to a large sum of money from Katy Perry in the couple's divorce, but he's reportedly not asking for any of it.

According to TMZ, the British actor-comedian isn't seeking any money from his estranged wife, despite being able to walk away with tens of millions of dollars.

"This divorce is as amicable as it gets," a source told the website.

Brand and Perry married in October 2010, and he filed for divorce in December 2011. A source told People the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement, meaning Brand could lay claim to half of what the singer earned while they were married.

Forbes estimates that Perry earned $44 million between May 2010 and May 2011.

TMZ reports that the couple's divorce will be made official on June 30, after a mandatory six-month waiting period.
