How Much Did Katie Holmes Hate Her Marriage?


TMZ got their hands on the settlement agreement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. I sure hope that her contract paid her a decent sum of money while they were married or that she saved a bunch from all those bombs she acted in during the marriage. I bet right now Katie is kicking herself for bailing on the Batman sequels because she only receives $400K a year from Tom Cruise and that is just for the next 12 years until Suri turns 18. The money is child support but, does a 6 year old really need $33K a month when Tom is still paying for school and insurance and other things like that? Katie gave up all that high life living because she was so miserable in her marriage. Does this mean that she did not sign a confidentiality agreement? I sure would like to see a five part series of books, one for each year of marriage. Each would be a best seller. Way better than another book from a Jersey Shore cast member or that Hills person who keeps writing books no one reads.

Wow. She DID hate it, to leave so cheaply.
I'm sure Suri has at least a trust in her name also, from her father.

Syko said...

ONLY almost five million for the next 12 years? Boo hoo.

MBk said...

Oh, so that explains why she refuses to buy new shoes.

From the. purported father, you mean.

hunter said...

I'm sure Suri will be set for sure. Yeah 400K/year is not a lot of money for these people but now she has the freedom to pick her own projects and make more moolah. Wow she must have been really unhappy, I can't even imagine.

i think her contract isn' tgoing to be released and of course all we will hear about is her child spporT. Tom isn't going to let htat information get out on how much hes paid katie for her contract. That was already settled before they even went to court for the child spport. One has nothing to do with the other, because its not spousal support, it was money givn to her for being married to him for a certain amount of years. TMZ will NEVER get their hands on that info unless they want to go kidnap the president of Scientology or something

hunter said...

From what I've read on the Scientology boards, she was initially genuinely happy but over time that shit went south.

Lola said...

If it's true she got married for the money, and then got out without getting said money, something which became untenable was going on.

libby said...

GladysKravitz---OF COURSE I mean the 'legal father'. God knows Tom can pay Suri now, in advance for all the future 'good dad' photo-ops.

Redheat said...

Does anyone think it would not be worth it? I was always skeptical that when the time came, she would even be able to leave the marriage with visitation rights. She choose freedom, and her daughter over money, in my book, it was worth the loss of Tom's millions. Let him have the $$ I'd take my kid and freedom anytime.

Agent**It said...

Enty, I read this earlier and think that Katie just gave Co$ the biggest F****** EVER. Hope she calls Lisa Marie.What a book that could be. Speaking of Co$, "The Master" that opens in Sept.Is that not synchronous timing? How much free publicity?

Where's Shelly?

libby said...

Cannot wait for "The Master" !!! PTA supposedly screened it for Tom, and he reportedly had some 'problems' with it. I'll bet he did, from what I've read, PTA pulls no punches and barely, barely veils that it's an anti-$ci, anti-LRH film.

loubea said...

Katie's book will be titled:


"If I was married to a Scientologist for 5 years."

Brenda L said...

If I was her I would not be caring. She's out of that crap...money isn't everything and in a case like this, totally worth it. AND she has full custody of her child.

Agent**it said...

Starring SHELLY and Tony Ortega can play McGlib.Now Suri, of course, would play herself but only narrate. Suri's Burn.

artemis said...

I wish this Enty would ask the other Entys what font they use, because the change in font for certain posts really distracts me.

Oh well, it's not the end of the world.

How difficult would it be to downsize from the lavish lifestyle Katie had with the Clam Messiah versus what she'll have now? I'm almost glad I've grown up poor since I have no idea what I'm missing.

I said almost! ;)


FrenchGirl said...

according to many ex-scientologic peoples,Holmes and Cruise were happy at the begining but Cruise is totally controlled by Scientology's boss

and his marriage with Kidman was real also(at a moment,Cruise almost dropped the Scientology for Kidman)

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

I'm sure her big payday was covered in a separate, confidential out of court agreement that will never see the light of day...gee enty, you'd think a lawyer would know not to take any Hollywood divorce settlement on face value!

MISCH said...

Wasn't she paid out on the contract in installments during the marriage..? I read she netted about 40 million all together...

Kalifornia said...

The day her divorce was finalized was the biggest pay day she could hope for.

auntliddy said...

when she's done, she's done.

crila16 said...

Wow...thought she was getting way more than that. And boohoo is right. I won't ever even see 1 mill in my lifetime.

Time is something you can never get back. Divorced in TWO (2) months. Free and clear. You can't put a price on that.

cc423 said...

Her dad is worth upwards of $250 million, so I think $33K is sufficient per year. BTW... I hate myself for hating a 1st grader because they are rich.

strongerthancoffee said...

They just showed the old South Park episode about COS on Comedy Central. You remember... Where Tom C. and John T. wouldn't come out of the closet... Priceless.

Katie got paid. It's just not going to appear on public documents.

Unknown said...

How do you know her Dad is worth $250 million? No offense, but he's a lawyer in Toledo, OH - unless there's family money there (or they won the lottery), I can't see how that's possible. And I've never heard about old money before in her family.

Unknown said...

Never mind, I'm a moron. I just realized the "her dad" is SURI'S DAD, not Katie's. Got in. Same page.

Pharcyde said...

Will someone please explain to me why he has to pay her $400k per year???

She isnt disabled...she can work and get her own job.

MISCH said...

@ Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors...

Sounds about right, anyway she's free. Can only imagine how oppressive it was.

jax said...

Obviously she was getting paid all along and this "settlement" is just for show.

The VERY LOW child support confirms what we all know, not his kid.

Pharcyde said...

Well if it is not his kid then why does he have to pay??

If it isnt his kid then Katie really isnt the sweetheart that she has been portrayed to be.

GrowFarmington said...

you can live very well on $40k a month in Ohio (lol)

urban chaos said...

pharcyde- even if Suri isn't his bio child TC has claimed her as such and so he should PAY an amount reflected of Suri's lifestyle as his daughter.

Ideally, when parents divorce the child(ren) shouldn't notice a drop in their standard of living which is why courts award generous support based on income.

libby said...

My goodness. Some angry people just tell us a bit too much about their OWN problems and hang-ups. Geez.

Agent**It said...

Transfer of titles, deeds (for land and other) and a joint Swiss bank account as well as other off shore accounts for the 2 of them were likely done "pre" divorce. As well as her trust fund .Suri is legally his child as are his two older children. 400k because it's practical and most (not all) of the financial transactions will not be legally traceable.

__-__=__ said...

I meant to add Free Tom! And Where is Shelley!!

Lizzie du said...

IDK to me Suri looks like him and i think he really loves her. If wht you guys say its true n cos is such a
" cult" with evil doers n no one is allowed to see the none COS members. Why would he risk all the back lash from his "cult" ? Arent most members brained washed?
I like TC dont care about his church but i've heard hes done alot of nice things for people n his fans.

Mango said...

@ Unknown - I thought the same thing!

And as much as I despise McGlib, I would estimate his fortune to be greater than $250 million

whocaresnow12 said...

It's child support. He's not paging her anything. He's paying child support.

Sherry said...

I really believe he loves Suri and thought he won the jackpot when he got Katie to agree to marry him AND she was pregnant at the same time. I think he loves all his children. So Pharcyde that is why he's paying. They are all his children albeit not biological.

And you betcha Katies's gotten paid for the contract. No one will ever see that.

Rose said...

Why do some people think if Tom wasn't Suri's biological father, that he isn't really her father when it comes to money? He is on the birth certificate, legally her Dad. He should be paying support, especially since I'm guessing Katie gets her the majority of the time.

What do people think of all the kids who are adopted? They are still their parent's children, divorce or not, even after death. I don't like TC but it's a little insulting.

caralw said...

Who knows if he had a separate agreement with Katie?

He makes Johnny Depp look generous, though. Vanessa got 150 million.

Vintage Pink said...

sometimes freedom cannot have a price put on it. I would imagine that this is one of those times.

Me said...

i had to smile when i read this. she got what matters to her, her freedom, her child and something to live on. i did the same thing. i wouldn't want any of the shit we got together, because it has his stank on it and/or reminds me of the fake marriage. freedom = pricelesss

Sherry you took the words right off my iPad. Great summation
