Katie Holmes will be getting virtually nothing from Tom Cruise by way of $$$$ because their prenup cuts her out of his fortune ... and sources connected with Katie tell us it's just fine with her.
We've learned the prenup Katie signed is long, tight and stacked in Tom's favor. We're told reports that she'll walk away with $15-20 million are absurd. Our sources say Katie will walk away with what she brought into the marriage ... and hardly anything else.
Our Katie sources tell us, "She's not about the money. She's not that girl. She loves to work."
We're told there's one thing Katie is insistent on -- she wants child support from Tom, and that could turn into a big ticket item.
As for whether Katie will challenge the prenup ... it's pretty common when a divorcing couple is in conflict, and our Katie sources are not ruling that out. But they insist, "Money is not that important to her. She makes plenty on her own."
One final point ... a well-placed source connected with the couple tells us, the prenup that basically gives Katie bupkis is proof the marriage is not a sham -- she didn't tie the knot for the loot.
Katie Holmes was always "careful" with what she said and never revealed too much during Scientology auditing sessions that she partook in during her time with Tom Cruise, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"Katie wasn't exactly forthcoming with information during her Scientology audit/confessions," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. "Katie's father, Martin, advised her to be careful with what she said during these sessions so that nothing negative could get leaked to the press or be used to make her look bad.
"Look, Katie led a very ordinary and honest life before she met Tom and tried to continue to do so during the time she was with him. Katie is level headed and extremely smart. She was never completely committed to Scientology, but she participated because she truly was in love with Tom and she knew it meant a lot to him. Her heart just wasn't in it though, she was always guarded and careful during the auditing sessions with what she revealed."
Even in a saga riddled with crazy subplots and strange coincidences, it all seems a bit far fetched — RadarOnline.com has discovered that Katie Holmes’ escape pad, the New York City apartment block she secretly rented a new home in before filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, has turned out to be the former abode of Penelope Cruz.
Yes, the same Penelope Cruz who starred in Vanilla Sky with Cruise before dating him for three years.
Cruz, 38, is now happily shacked up with handsome husband, fellow Oscar winner Javier Bardem, but a source told RadarOnline exclusively that the pretty Spaniard laid her head at the Manhattan address post Cruise split, up until two years ago.
The odds of the two women living at the same address in the whole of Manhattan are staggering. Of course though, coincidences do happen, especially when it comes to Tom and his ladies.
The Spanish actress was Cruise’s only serious relationship between his past two wives, Nicole Kidman and Katie.
This was not how Tom Cruise envisioned marking a milestone.
The movie superstar had made plans to celebrate his 50th birthday in Iceland Tuesday with his wife of five years, Katie Holmes, by enjoying the country's outdoor wonders.
"Iceland is beautiful," Cruise told PEOPLE several weeks ago. "We like hiking, and so we'll have some nice hikes and maybe go camping."
But everything changed last week when Holmes, 33, caught Cruise by surprise and filed for divorce in New York, then moved out of their apartment, taking daughter Suri, 6, with her.
Instead, Cruise has been solo in Iceland, where he's filming the sci-fi flick Oblivion, while his lawyers in the U.S. weigh how – and where – to respond to Holmes's divorce papers.
Audiences first fell in love with Katie Holmes as girl-next-door Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek, a role she relished for six seasons. But when Holmes was approached about possibly reuniting with her former costars James Van Der Beek, 35, and Joshua Jackson, 34, the actress' husband, Tom Cruise, 49, nixed the idea.
"[Producers] were begging her to sign on for a reunion movie," a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now). "Tom said absolutely no way and thought going backward would be bad."
Holmes, on the other hand, "didn't care how 'low-brow' he thinks Dawson's Creek is," the source adds. "She wanted to do the movie and reconnect with her fans. And have fun -- something she rarely does anymore."
(In a November 2011 appearance on Good Morning America, Holmes said a reunion movie "would be fun. I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories.")
Sneaking off in the middle of the night wasn't exactly Mission: Impossible for Tom Cruise.
The actor boarded his private jet at 2 a.m. July 3 -- his 50th birthday -- at the Reykjavik airport in Iceland, three sources confirm to Us Weekly exclusively. Cruise's destination: California, his primary state of residence. (Cruise and soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Holmes, 33, own a $30 million mansion in Beverly Hills, in addition to properties in New York City and Telluride, Colorado.)
