It was once a home of marital bliss. But Russell Brand isn't nostalgic about the property he once shared with his former wife Katy Perry. In fact the 36-year-old comedian has quite happily surrendered the sprawling $6.5 million mansion the couple purchased together to the 27-year-old pop star, according to TMZ. A quitclaim deed filed in Los Angeles indicates that Russell has handed over the rights to Katy as part of a property settlement between the pair. The move comes as Katy has travelled to India, where the couple both got engaged and subsequently married in October 2010. The former couple tied the knot in a traditional Hindu ceremony near the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary in Rajasthan, India, the same location where Russell proposed in 2009. The I Kissed a Girl star was in the South Asian country to perform at the Indian Premier League opening ceremony in Chennai, India.
