Katie Holmes may be alot of things: un-talented, downtrodden, lacking in fashion sense, a sucker for men that suck ______, et cetera, et cetera…but one thing she is not… is a golddigger.
Release the records!!
In one of the quickest divorces in the history of Hollywood (and also after one of the quickest courtships in the history of Hollywood if you don’t consider Kim Kardashian a true celebrity), some of the legal documents are beginning to spill out and they prove, once and for all, that Katie Holmes just wanted to, to paraphrase Angela Bassett in Waiting To Exhale...
get her sh*t and get out!
Sources familiar with the records say that Katiebot did not receive a lump sum payout and so has no claim whatsoever on Tom Cruise’s estimate $250 million fortune. As golddiggers worldwide shake their heads and scream out with laughter/fury/bitterness, let me finish!
Katie also did not ask Tom to shell out any money for spousal support. In a move that would make Gloria Steinem grin from ear to ear (or would it?), Katie requested no money and received none. The only money Katie is receiving is for the care of their daughter, Suri. Even that amount is alot less than most Hollywood wives receive after a divorce from such a huge star. Under the ruling, Katie will receive about $400,000 a year in child support for the next twelve years until Suri reaches the age of eighteen. That totals to approximately $4.8 million. Tom will also have to pay for Suri’s medical, dental, insurance, education, college, and any other extracurricular costs associated with her. All told, this is a drop in the bucket for the multimillionaire.
The most crucial part of the settlement – and considered by many the sticking point and the main reason for their divorce – is that Suri will not be attending any residential (read: Scientology) school. Katie could have received substantially more money had she tried the case in New York but she settled quickly and decided to move on.
I, for one, celebrate this move. Because who needs to be tied down to a mini-man hellbent on control? Sure, she deserved more after being married to a control freak of Napoleonic proportions, but at the end of the day, she still has her height and Tom still has his sofa to hop on.
