Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s Divorce: What We Know So Far
It's been a week since the news broke that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, ending their five-year marriage. Since then there's been a barrage of news about the split, their future, and Katie's current state of mind.
To help you keep up with all things TomKat Tom and Katie, here is a roundup of the most noteworthy post-split news.
Why Did She File?
- Katie cited "irreconcilable differences" when filing for divorce, which is a fairly ambiguous reason, and they are keeping the details private... for now.
- There are conflicting reports about what role Scientology — especially its instructions for how to raise a child — played in Katie's decision to leave Tom.
- Katie seems to be focusing on making sure Suri has plenty to keep her occupied during this difficult time. They've been spotted on several mommy-daughter outings, such as an ice cream break and a trip to a museum. Suri reportedly called her day out with Katie on Thursday (June 5) the "best day ever."
What's the Money Situation?
- There are conflicting reports about what Katie and Tom's prenup entails. At first, it sounded like Katie could walk away with $15 million, but a more recent report suggests she will get little beyond what she came into the marriage with (though she is insisting on child support).
