TMZ is reporting that Katie Holmes will only receive a modest check for child support each month in the divorce settlement with Tom Cruise, and will not be receiving any spousal support of any kind. They say that this is because of the pre-nup, which allows her nothing of Cruise's reported $250 million fortune. They are saying Holmes has gotten no lump sum payout of any kind either, in addition to no spousal support.
The child support amount is also not huge by Hollywood standards, as it amounts to $33,000 a month. In most cases, this would barely cover the price of really expensive private school. However, Cruise only has to pay this amount until Suri turns 18 years old, at which point he is no longer obligated to continue providing child support. He also has to cover all her other costs, such as medical, insurance, education, and other extra curricular costs.
According to TMZ, the agreement also includes an agreement from both sides that Suri will not have to attend a residential school from now until 18 years old. Effectively, Holmes has made sure that Cruise will not be able to ship her to Sea Org or any other scientology training facility.
