Can’t say I’m sad about this one. The “Holme of Cruise” is no longer, as Katie announced she was divorcing Tom today. The end of the five year marriage is sounding a bit unfriendly as it is understood Holmes has filed for sole custody of the most photographed 6 year old child in celeb-land, Suri Cruise.
The division of the couples $275 million royalties, primarily earned by Tom’s excellent acting skills, should be relatively straightforward. The couple made the sensible decision to sign the most unromantic document ever created, “The Pre-nup”, before they married in 2006. Katie should be entitled to $15 million ($3 mill for every year of marriage) as well as the couple's $35 million Beverly Hills mansion, The Daily Mail reports.
The relationship has been pockmarked with a succession of cringe-worthy events. No one will forget Tom’s decision to jump like a maniac on Oprah’s sofa declaring his undying love for Katie, mere months into their romance. Rumors of a Scientology-induced “silent birth,” and subsequent whisperings that Holmes wasn’t actually pregnant, had the media speculating that Suri was imported from a foreign country. Tom’s recent W Magazine cover, with full eye make up and “totally natural” six pack, is said to have infuriated Katie, 33. To be honest, it was kind of deathly for a 49 year old dad.
The split does not come as a big suprise. Bets on divorce have been circulating for years, and the couple has not been photographed together in months.
