One of this weekâ€™s tabloids claims Katie Holmes is strapped for cash and willing to take any movie role for money. The story is completely bogus. Gossip Cop can correct it.
According to the Globe, the actress has been struggling financially since her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise. An alleged insider tells the magazine, â€śKatie needs cash to support her A-list lifestyle, even though she is really now a D-lister! She is willing to take the lowest of low Hollywood roles to avoid sinking into debt. She is just not considered a red-hot commodity in fashion or film.â€ť
As part of their divorce settlement, Cruise pays Holmes $400,000 a year in child support for their daughter Suri, but the outlet claims itâ€™s not enough to cover her expenses. â€śKatie sometimes regrets not fighting for more cash from Tom, but she just wanted out,â€ť says the outletâ€™s supposed source, who spitefully adds that the actress â€ślooks like a poor, middle-aged, single mom who can barely take care of herself.â€ť
In addition to the magazineâ€™s article being incredibly mean-spirited, itâ€™s also totally inaccurate. The tabloids hide behind an anonymous and seemingly nonexistent â€śsourceâ€ť to back up its story. Holmesâ€™ rep, however, is going on to the record to dismiss the claim. The actressâ€™s spokesperson denies that sheâ€™s having money issues.
Itâ€™s worth noting, this isnâ€™t the first time Gossip Cop has had to call out the Globe for concocting a story surrounding the actressâ€™s financial situation. We busted the tabloid in September for falsely claiming that Jamie Foxx was forcing Holmes to sign a prenup before he would marry her because he didnâ€™t want the actress getting her hands on his fortune. The outlet even stated, â€śJamieâ€™s worth more than $100 million, while Katieâ€™s got just a quarter of that.â€ť Regardless of whoâ€™s worth what, the story was completely bogus. Holmes and Foxx arenâ€™t planning to walk down the aisle, so theyâ€™ve never discussed the terms of a nonexistent prenup.
Thereâ€™s additional proof that the tabloid has zero insight into the actressâ€™s personal life. In May, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for wrongly reporting that Holmes and Foxx would be getting married over the summer. The two obviously never walked down the aisle this past summer, and that initial article made no mention of any dispute over a prenup. It seems the unreliable outlet just comes up with new narratives as it goes along. This latest one about Holmesâ€™ financial situation is more nonsense.
