This Week's Shining & Falling Stars: Russell Brand And Suge Knight

Shining star - Russell Brand
The British comedian shows Starpulse he's more than just a funny man through his "amicable" divorce to Katy Perry.
A judge has granted the pop princess and king of comedy a divorce this week, although it won't be finalized until July.
Reports indicate, Brand filed the final divorce docs Wednesday, and reportedly doesn't want a single penny from his wealthy wife. Now I don't know about you, but this guy is a class act! Perry made a whopping $44 million between May 2010 and May 2011, according to Forbes, utterly out-earning Brand. And because the two didn't sign a pre-nup, the actor/comedian is entitled to half.
Sources say, Brand isn't interested in the "California Gurls" singer's fortune.
In fact, an insider tells TMZ, "the divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch [Yiddish for a good person.]"
We'd like to tip our hats to your, Sir Brand, and can only wish more celebrities take cues from you!
Falling Star - Suge Knight
Don't these rap artists EVER learn?! Another rap music mogul has been arrested on marijuana charges, and it's not his first time.
Death Row Records Exec Suge Knight was arrested on a traffic warrant and misdemeanor drug charges Wednesday evening in Las Vegas. Police spokesman Laura Meltzer says, the 46 year old's black Bentley was pulled over after making an unsafe lane change. Officers then discovered Suge had three outstanding traffic warrants.
Meltzer says, officers searched the vehicle and found less than an ounce of marijuana. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court March 12.
Knight was arrested back in 2008 on drug and aggravated assault charges after leaving a Las Vegas strip club. Reports allege he was beating his girlfriend of three years, and was under the influence of ecstasy and hydrocodone.
