Tom Cruise

Didn't Pay Katie

Lump Sum in Divorce

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

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.

Obviously Twerp didnt pay enough for his sessions, because they taped everything which is spiritual rape, that must make every Scatologist feel warm and fuzzy inside ehhh?

OBTW Tom shouldnt offer too much, his career is tanking and so is that cult they can now be called SCRAPOLOGISTS

When is TMZ going to find Shelly Miscavige?

Or is it normal for cults in the Thirty Mile Zone to disappear their wives?

Too late--it is now all out there for the public to see what an Idiotic, dangerous "religion" Scientology is. Everyone knows now and is finding out about it. People who had never even heard of it are all scratching their heads, saying, "WTF." People REALLY believe that alien stuff that sci fi writer told them is TRUE? REALLY? Ha ha ha ha! Those scientologist celebs have got to be totally embarrassed about how people are laughing so hard at how gullible or stupid they are to believe that crap. It really is unbelievable.

I have decided that today I am going to start my own religion. All I can tell you is that it involves evil kitten spirits, immortality and becoming the person you are meant to be. I will gladly tell you more if you give me $300,000, AND I'll even raise you to the next level! I'll call it Kittenology! Who wants to be an immortal kitten? Convert to Kittenology now! (for $300,000.....)

I bet Charlie Manson wishes he stuck it out with Scientology instead of rushing out to start his own cult. He could have done ALL the same disgusting evil sh*t and been awarded Freedom Medals of Valor (vomit) for it instead of rotting away in jail. Sometimes patience pays off, Charlie!

Anyone else notice Tommy boy's 3 marriages ended when the wives hit 33-34. Gets them in their sexual prime then finds a new one when they get on their sexual decline.

Why is it anyone's business what Tom Cruise will pay in child support - unless you are either Tom Cruise or Katie Holmes? Geeze, leave these people alone.

..."As one source put it, "She has her own money"...
---
Then why is Tom paying child support? Katie has ample money to support her daughter.
Katie doesn't want to spend any of her own millions on her daughter, she wants Tom to pay it all.
Think we all know which one is the giver, and which is the taker ;)

The price Tom paid to Katie: very little $
The price of child support paid to Katie for Suri: Millions
The price of Katie's freedom from Tom: Priceless!
