Actor and comedian Russell Brand has given up his share of his marital home which he had bought with his ex-wife Katy Perry.

The 4 million pound house in Hollywood Hills was bought just months before Brand filed for divorce last December. Brand had agreed to move out of the mansion after the split. Removal vans were spotted taking away the actor's belongings, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Brand told the Sun news portal, that he would not claim the £12.5million of her earnings to which he is reportedly entitled.

Brand and Kate spilt just after 14 months of their marriage. Now Brand is dating someone else and Kate Perry.
