Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes Prenup: How Much Will She Get in the Divorce?

by at . Comments

How much will Katie Holmes get in her split from Tom Cruise?

That depends on a number of variables, but the prenup she signed in 2006 basically cuts her out of the vast majority of her fortune, according to reports.

One source calls the prenup she signed "long, tight and stacked in Tom's favor." Not that she minds. She just wants freedom for herself and her daughter.

A source close to Cruise says reports that she will receive $3 million for every year they were married are false, and that she will receive next to nothing.

At the same time, "She's not about the money. She's not that girl. She loves to work. Money is not that important to her. She makes plenty on her own."

A major sticking point in the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce - besides custody of Suri - may be child support, which she reportedly wants from the star.

As for whether Katie will challenge the prenup, it's pretty common when a divorcing couple is in conflict, though it's unclear on what grounds she'd contest it.

Katie sources are not ruling that out, but they insist she's not out for cash and cite the prenup as proof of her intentions: she didn't marry for his money.

So why'd she leave? Reportedly out of fear that their daughter, now six years old, would be dragged deep into his controversial Scientology belief system.

Holmes' decision to file for divorce blindsided Cruise, but it appears she had been planning to leave him, or at least thinking about it, for up to six months.

Incidentally, Forbes' new list of highest paid actors in Hollywood has Tom at #1, by a wide margin, with $75 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Adam Sandler tied for second with $37 million. Gives you an idea of Tom's league when it comes to stardom ... he's in his own.

As for the comment about her leading him on, you do what you gotta do. My ex didnt know i was leaving until he came home and my shit was gone. Controlling relationships have to be ending in whatever way you can. If my ex would have known i was leaving there would have been violence. Good for her for getting away from him and his cult

FUCK THE PRENUP!!!!! I think that Katie should financially go after that terrible tyrant Tom and TRY to take from him everything that he's worth. I mean...during their marriage, Tom did nothing but control her, stifle her (creativity and all) and (most of all) suck the life out of her. In an ULTIMATE word...P-A-Y-B-A-C-K!!!!!

I'm happy for her and can't believe she stayed as long as she did. A few days before she filed I had commented to my mom that you always see pictures of her and Suri but almost no pictures of Her, Suri and Tom. I wasn't surprised at all and I hope she will be able to keep her daughter out of the Cult of Scientology.

Don't be naive. There marriage was broken before this. Would put money that Tom persuaded her to wait until just before his movie came out to actually file the divorce papers.
