Numerous sources report that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have finalized their prenuptial agreement, which would give Holmes $3 million annually, up to $33 million, if she stays married to the insane one for 11 years. A home in Montecito, Calif., will also be hers.
If the marriage lasts more than 11 years, the contract becomes void and Holmes gets half of Cruise's estate. The two reportedly plan to wed soon.
Holmes' parents have told Life & Style Weekly they want Katie to marry Tom now, in spite of their serious doubts regarding the relationship.
"If she walks now, Tom will fight her for custody [of Suri, the couple's infant daughter], and Katie can't outlast him in court," an insider told Life & Style. "She knows she needs to marry him to get the money to fight him for custody, if it comes to that."
In any event, it will be interesting to see how many million Katie will bank before it becomes too much. While it would take a lot to marry an individual whose mental capacity is eroding before your eyes (and whose star may be falling), $33 million is sizable motivation. We're thinking of starting a pool, so stay tuned.
