Ohio residents hear about celebrity divorces almost every day. They are splashed across the covers of gossip magazines and tabloids in the grocery store checkout aisles, and even major TV news stations report on the high-profile splits. When people think of a high-asset divorce, often images of bitter disputes over millions in assets come to mind. The divorce process is drawn out, sometimes over years, as people work tirelessly to take money from each other. Rarely do we hear about a celebrity divorce in which things actually go smoothly and quickly.
Twenty million dollars. That is how much Russell Brand is set to receive in his high-asset divorce from pop princess Katy Perry, according to recent reports. Brand, 36, apparently filed for divorce on Dec. 30 after 14 months of marriage.
