Now that she’s split up with Tom Cruise, divorcee, single mother and one-time “Project Runway” celebrity judge Katie Holmes may be once again seeking gainful employment – depending on how the couple’s $275 million gets divvied up.
The couple cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their divorce, which they accomplished in record time – in the celebrity world – clocking in at 53 days after the papers were filed.
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have spent more time in divorce court than they did in their marriage bed. And whereas Cruise and Holmes have a child together to add to the mess, as far as is known, Kim and Kris don’t even have a goldfish together to hold things up.
But although the divorce was timely, the details are fuzzy, as is just about everything associated with the media-created shorthand for the couple: TomKat.
The Times of London reported that the divorce settlement has been kept confidential by order of a judge. However, earlier this summer, reports surfaced that Holmes was seeking sole custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, in the divorce. It was unclear if Cruise was interested in keeping the kid.
The Daily Mail reported that the couple’s combined fortune was estimated at $275 million.
I’m not sure what Dawson’s Creek paid, but would venture to say the bulk of the estate came from the Cruise side of the family.
Someone claiming to be a friend of Cruise told E! News, “Tom is very happy and relieved that he is moving forward. His priority is being a good father and this settlement will make sure that continues.”
