News: Katie Holmes Seeks Buyout of Marriage Contract
Almost six years ago when Katie and Tom got together after Cruise's bizarre screening for wives, it seemed "off". It seemed "off" during the studio interviews (couch jumping) and strange in-home specials (where Katie looked like a brain-washed prisoner) throughout that time. And it seemed "off" when they set up a bonus laden pre-nup agreement that entitled Holmes to $3 million for each year she stayed with Cruise. Now after five plus years, Katie is tapping out. Like a weird game show, she will walk away with 50% of what they both earned during their time together (consider Katie's duds: Mad Money, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and Jack and Jill against Tom's higher grossing Tropic Thunder, Knight and Day and Mission Impossible III), but also $15 million for gutting it out for 5 years... how could she quit so close to the six year mark? Not a bad haul for the role of a lifetime, but the real question in people's minds is who Cruise will choose next as his shipmate for the terrestrial afterlife.
