The Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce story has been ominously quiet for the last couple of weeks. That doesn't come as too much of a surpriseÂ—they're trying to keep things civil for their daughter, Suri. And in reality, there really hasn't been a lot of drama surrounding the couple's split. It was well known that the two had a strict pre-nup that dictated the terms of their divorce before it even became an issueÂ—and with the couple refusing to disclose the downfalls of their marriage, there really hasn't been anything very interesting about the whole story. At least there hasn't been until today.
While Holmes will not be receiving much in terms of straight cash from her divorce, she will be keeping all of the lavish gifts that Tom showered on her throughout their courtship and marriage. Yeah, that doesn't sound like much. Until you factor in that Tom Cruise is one of the wealthiest actors in Hollywood. And that he spent "millions of dollars in jewelry, designer handbags and other gifts" on his soon-to-be former wife," according to a source.
Among other pieces, one set of diamond earrings is rumored to be worth well over $500K. That's a heck of a lot to have invested in a closet, even for a fashion queen like Katie Holmes! The biggest question on everyone's minds: Will she sell off some of her fabulous jewels or keep them for Suri when she gets older?
No one knows the answer to that question. With her laid back sense of style and aversion to being in the spotlight, it's easy to see that Holmes was never with Cruise for the money. Although that boost she got in Hollywood statusÂ—and potential payouts on future Hollywood contractsÂ—had to be pretty lucrative for a girl that flew under the radar before their marriage.
With all that being said, she could just live off of her closet for the rest of her life: Sell the jewels, girl! (Radar Online)
