If Tom Cruise went bankrupt I actually think it would be hilarious, but despite reports that make it seem otherwise, Tom Cruise isn't going bankrupt anytime soon. Here is the story as printed:
Tom Cruise is at risk of going bankrupt if he does not stop spending money, according to reports.
You, me, the guy across the street and Bill Gates could all go bankrupt if we don't have any money coming in, and keep spending money. That isn't the most original thought ever written. Not saying that I always have original thoughts, but you could put any name where they have Tom Cruise written and it would fit.
The actor has lavished so much cash on luxuries for himself, wife Katie Holmes and their baby Suri that friends fear he could lose his £125 million fortune.
So, at the current exchange rate, Tom has about $250M give or take. At 5% interest a year that would be $12.5M coming in without depleting any of his fortune. So, about a $1M a month or $30,000 a day. Yes, there are taxes, but hey, this is a gossip blog.
A source said: "Tom is really into money. He has no problem spending it. It makes him feel powerful. He loves to brag about his Porsche's, his homes, his planes and his motorcycles.
He needs something to be powerful other than controlling every aspect of his wife's life. Maybe he has a small d**k and so he compensates by spending it on toys. Maybe it is his way of hiding whatever demons he has inside of him and should let out. Not that he would ever come out or needs to come out because everyone knows Tom isn't gay right?
"When Tom takes Katie out, he has his security people hand $100 bills to anyone who helps them, even someone who opens a door! He's a big giver."
Judging by the photos it looks like Tom lets Katie Holmes out of her prison about once a week. So a few $100 bills to the doorman aren't going to break him. In fact, this whole thing almost looks like a setup to show the world how much Tom has, but that he is a giver and that he is a big flashy player in Hollywood.
The 45-year-old reportedly spent $1 million on fuel for his four private planes last year.
Again, the article is telling us how much Tom has, and that he is a big man as far as the wallet goes. Do the Scientology folks have a PR department set up solely for Tom?
