Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are facing a second custody battle – one apart from who gets Suri Cruise. No-one is surprised that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise and along with the custody battle over Suri, the ex-couple now have rich person problems, namely – who gets which house?
Tomkat’s residential collection reads like a rental agent’s guide to taking over the world. The first property in the custody battle is the Beverly Hills estate on Calle Vista Drive. This property was bought for $30,500,000 in April of 2007, just six months after their wedding. According to Radaronline, “[The property spans] 10,286 square feet with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, the traditional style house was originally built in 1937 and sits on 1.3 acres behind majestic gates and a lengthy driveway that opens up to a tennis court and pool.” Sounds like our dream home, doesn’t it?
Tom also owns a much smaller house on Torreyson Drive that he bought in 2005 before his marriage to Katie. This property costs $9.85 million and has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. This house was also used as the Jim Jones Church of Scientology HQ’s lavish parties where they sacrificed little kittens where they listened to Carly Rae Jepsen and danced into the morning light. They also have a residence in New York’s up market Greenwich Village which was purchased for over fifteen million dollars.
They also have a cabin in the woods where the Cruise’s made snow angels in Colorado. This property contains 9 bedrooms and Tom owned this property before his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Sorry, but we didn’t get the crazed materialism memo in our annual Scientology news letter, please send it again Tom and don’t forget to CC Charles Manson – he just loves reading emails in prison.
It seems that even rich and famous people have problems. Poor Katie Holmes needed to get away from the controlling Tom Cruise. At least she’s getting a house. Not bad, hey?
