Katy Perry Signs Off on Divorce With a Smile

Most Amicable Split in U.S. History Won't Be Made Official Until June

Katy Perry signed off on her divorce from Russell Brand this week and the court documents reveal a few new details: 1) The "Firework" singer is getting her maiden name back. 2) The comedian wants none of her money. 3) There's never a wrong time for a smiley face signature.

Perry, 27, and Brand, 36, reached a "comprehensive written settlement of all issues," according to a court filing in Los Angeles Superior Court.

In Perry's court filing, she asks the court to not get involved in awarding Brand 50% of her earnings since getting married in October 2010. She also requested to legally return to her maiden name. According to TMZ, Brand's court filing asks for no spousal support.

To cap off this, the most amicable divorce in Hollywood history, Perry has added a smiley face while signing her name in at least two court documents.

There's time to save the marriage, if both parties choose to do so. The divorce won't actually be official until June 30, in accordance to California's 6-month waiting period.

Perry and Brand started dating in late 2009, with the "Get Him to the Greek" actor proposing over the New Year's weekend two years ago. The couple married on Oct. 23, 2010 -- two days before the singer's 26th birthday -- in a lavish ceremony in India.
