Tom Cruise

Didn't Pay Katie

Lump Sum in Divorce

7/13/2012 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0711_tom_cruise_secrets_Settlement_article_2Tom Cruise did not pay Katie Holmes a lump sum in his divorce settlement, but he will pay handsomely in the child support department ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Our well-connected sources tell us ... reports that Katie scored $50 million are "ridiculous." We're told she did not get a lump sum of money at all. As we previously reported, Katie signed a prenup which gave her goose eggs by ending the marriage. And, sources connected with Katie have been telling us from day 1 that she was not after his money. As one source put it, "She has her own money."

We do know, however, that Tom is paying "a lot of money" in the form of child support. Tom will be making regular payments for 12 years. Our sources say all tolled, Tom will be paying "more than $10 million" in child support, though no one would be more specific.

you comment section turd burglars approve of TMZ reports if TMZ is promoting your point of view but as soon as they stray from your hate campaign you invalidate TMZ - the emperor has no clothes - you guys are insane for the most part or just dishonest

0 critical thinking happening in this silly comment section where you are concerned

most of you all display that dangerous polarizing "you are with us or against us" attitude

wow ew    

Looks like Tom pulled out the big legal guns again, just heard that the media has to stop talking **** or legal action will be taken against them. That's one way to get tmz to stop talking **** right?
Hm. Whatever. He's a lil closeted gay man who couldn't keep a woman to save his life. Instead of reflecting on his relationship he's too busy shooting another sh*t movie.

I dont really recall Tom Cruise ever really doing anything wrong? He signed a prenup and he is going to pay child support. Even in he past he really has done very little to do anything that bad. He jumped on a couch and talked about people taking medication? (which I think alot of people who write on TMZ message boards abuse)!!! He doesnt take drugs and he works alot? Personally I have the utmost respect for him and think he has made some movies that I enjoyed watching.

Ironic that Scientology advocates character assassination under it's 'fair game' policy and in the end Scientology itself couldn't stand up to the mud raking brought on by a celebrity divorce.
Something to hide maybe?Ya think?

the expression is " all told" not all tolled. Who has the journalism degree at this publication?

I don't think the money end of it is anyone's business. This is about a break up of a marriage, and mostly, about a child. Move on to another story now.

TECHNICALLY....she didn't make anything on the prenup. BUT----that doesn't mean she didn't have some other "agreement" (read "contract with incentives") that she signed before she married him. Everyone knows. These contracts are among the worst kept secrets in showbiz.
She'll walk away with around $100 million.
