Katie Holmes divorces Tom Cruise, settles for $15M


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes during happier times

Katie Holmes will receive $3 million for every year she was married to Tom Cruise.

The 33-year-old actress has filed for divorce from the 49-year-old actor—who she wed in November 2006—and as she had signed a pre-nuptial agreement before they tied the knot, she is unable to seek half his rumored $275 million fortune.

Katie cited “irreconcilable differences” as reason behind their split and is seeking sole custody of their 6-year old daughter, Suri. Once approved, the actress is expected to receive a huge amount of child support from Tom for their daughter.

The two gets to keep their individual earnings from projects they’ve worked on since November 2006.

Had she decided to stay married to the actor for 11 years, she would have been entitled to a 50-50 split as per the California community property laws.

Cruise is said to be “deeply saddened” by the news.
