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.

all that is going on here is garden variety run of the mill tall poppy syndrome


it is the same on all message boards and comment section, nothing original going on here - nobodies going after people they have seen on TV or in the movies, and parroting the same garbage as each other over and over

Why pay any child support. She has her own money put what should be paid in child support into a trust fund for when she 25 or better 30.

"Ezekiel 25:17.


The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

This divorce will certainly change the way his religion does all those crazy things..child abuse by taking them away from the parents should be the first thing on the list and maybe getting rid of the leader David has he has done a crappy job almost like a Hitler....we all should be free to practice out religions when it is not cult like and should be open...

@ Happyday - trying to start your own cult?

Here's a tip - to write your "Bible" take 1 cup of black magic brainwashing spells (don't know any? Don't worry, just plagiarize some), 1 cup of irrational personal biases (always hated people with big noses for no rational reason? Great! Now is your chance to write about how they're all barely functioning s*** of the earth and are going straight to hell cause God hates them) and one cup of nonsensical rambling off the top of your head (smoke some crack to sharpen rambling ability. With any luck you'll also get demonically possessed which will make your work even better!) and mix. Never under any cir***stance stop to think about whether what you just wrote made any sense. If the whole thing takes you longer than 3 days you're doing it wrong.

Now, to find out how to turn your book into a worldwide bestseller with a cult following just send me $1,000,000 (no money back guarantee, your own personal cruise ship, phoney MD and Admiral titles sold seperately.)

OUR sources say the phrase is "all told", not "all tolled", so TMZ, please un-ring that bell!

Funny how Holmes has transformed from gaga eyed (then dead eyed) Stepford wive into a bank account ravaging terror bending over poor Tom and stealing his kid. All in the space of like 2 weeks! She was ruthless and Cruise went down like a house of cards at the first blow.

I can just see the scientologists using this against tom, telling him that the situation created engrams or whatever and charging him a ton of money to get clear

Of course he didn't pay it in the divorce settlement. He paid it in the CONTRACT-DISSOLUTION AGREEMENT. TMZ, you suck at News.

Child support in new york goes to 21 so your sources probably dont know as much as they thought.

Just as long as Tom takes care of the little human. That's the most important one in this matter.
