Katie Holmes' Embezzelling Relatives

| Filed under: Legal MattersKatie Holmes

It would seem that the women in Katie Holmes' family really know how to pick'em.

Over the recent Easter weekend, Katie's sister, Tamara, lost her estranged husband, J. Jeffrey Fretti, to heart failure. Fretti ran a successful funeral home in the Toledo, Ohio area. Or at least what everyone thought was successful.

It turns out that Fretti had embezzled money from four dozen patrons who paid in advance for funeral preparations. Officials have found a total of $180,000 missing from the records of the home. The money was logged in a special account overseen solely by Fretti and was supposedly established to hold “preneed funds” or money for "burial goods and services prior to death." According to the records, instead of following the required procedure of depositing the funds in the special “preneeds” trust fund, Fretti diverted the money into an account he used for ordinary business expenses.

On top of that, he had owed the bank a total of $495,000 on the funeral home! So even now, with the property and business being sold off, there is little chance any customers will get their money back.

What a terrible ordeal for these families to go through. Thousands of their hard earn dollars lost!

No chance your gonna step up and help them, huh Katie?

  1. 1

    Why the fuck do you think she should step in and help?



  2. 2

    Poor people, but it isn't Katie's responsibility to pay for someone else's crimes!



  3. 3

    Katie's got the money and it's a family affair. If she doesn't help out then she's a vacant zombie bitch. Oh wait. She's one of those anyway.



  4. 4

    are you kidding? tom would never allow her to do something like that.
    i hope someday this poor girl can grab her kid and escape from him. i feel so sorry for both of them.



  5. 5

    How's that any of katie's business….. so her brother in law steals money and she's supposed to bail them out??? fuck that shit foo!!!!!!!



  6. 6

    Come on Kate,
    You are Rich
    Go buy Better Clothes!



  7. 7

    I am not a fan of Katie's, but please, this is not her responsibility. Quit being such a prick Perez.



  8. 8

    I don't see what that has to do with Katy. One thing that blows my mind is anyone geting all upset over Scientology. I though were supposed be the Land of the Brave, the Home of the Brave, and defenders of all walks of worhship.



  9. 9

    Talentless hasbeen.



  10. 10

    Why would she step in? Especially since it is her sisters "estranged" husband? Loser was on his own! I can't believe so many people judge Katie and Tom so harshly, when they don't even know her.



  11. 11

    I'm from toledo, and a lot of ppl i know went to high school with katie, and she is a genuinely nice person. Give her a break.



  12. 12

    She will help her family members



  13. 13

    I'd still fuck her–



  14. 14

    Why should she help! She did nothing wrong here. You fucking idiot.



  15. 15

    I don't understand how this is her responsibility. Hey Perez you must make a ton of money off of this site. I mean 250 million plus viewers a month? That's got to translate into major ad revenue. Why don't YOU give them the money? (= Oh wait, it isn't your responsibility either.

    I normally like what you write but this is just plain idiocy.

    Why the fuck should she have to cover the debts of her deadbeat in-laws??? If all of us did that we would all go broke really fast. I bet if your mama did something like that you wouldn't squeeze a nickle out of your fat ass to help those that she scamed…stupid fag!!!!!!!



  17. 17

    Really not her responsibility to financially cover for her sister's estranged (by some reports divorced) husband's debts. It doesn't matter how much money someone has, I find it amazing that you would suggest that she is somehow morally obligated to reimburse these people for business investments that have NOTHING to do with her.
    I normally enjoy your site, but lately it just seems really sloppy and uninformed- ie. "news" that other gossip sites post hours earlier, spelling and grammatical mistakes, and now this ridiculousness.



  18. 18

    She is looking so much cuter lately than she did for a while. Much calmer, and the longer hair is better. She is really such a natural beauty, quite stunning I think.



  19. 19

    not Katie's problem at all! Why would you even suggest that?



  20. 20

    Okay, I'm from Toledo, and my family knows the Holmes family. Her parents have good money, and they are definitely not going to bail out Fretti's business. However, I'm sure they'll do their best to make sure Tammy and her boys will be just fine. They are a GOOD, SWEET family. Katie's sister and nephews are suffering enough right now.



  21. 21

    Ok I didn't read a single word of this post I just took one look at the photo and flashed back to 1995/6 my wardrobe/claire dane's wardrobe circa 'My So Called Life'. Anyone under 28-30 will not understand a word of this comment!!!!



  22. 22

    WHy would SHE need to help, you fat fuck?

    Why don't YOU help?



  23. 23

    Please start correcting your grammatical mistakes. In the last sentence of this piece you wrote, "your gonna step up" when it should be "you're gonna step up." "Your" is possessive, while "you're" is a contraction denoting "you are."
    Thank you.

    My favorite word: SLUT !!! SLUTTY SLUT SLUT !



  25. 25

    Come on, Obama. This family needs a bailout. Woops, wrong color skin.

    Why on earth should Katie help out? If you are so concerned, put your hand in your own pocket.



  27. 27

    Idiot. She shouldn't have to.



  28. 28

    No, Katie Holmes won't help her sister Tamara out because no doubt TommyGirl is in complete control of the family finances and if these people are zealot Scientologists he'll spurn them. He won't give anyone who's not a cult member the time of day…

    Uh, Katie Holmes looks rather seedy and forlorn in this photo. You'd never know she was a famous actress and married to whack-o Cruise.

    Your book is old and your space is ugly. The Citi is yours at Citipeeps.com



  30. 30

    What the F***. Why the hell should she look after fixing someone elses problem. Perez, you have the bucks now, why don't you step and be the hero!



  31. 31

    Katies other sisters husband was my math teacher and he was awesome!



  32. 32

    just because she's a relative and has lots of $$$$$, doesn't mean she has to help, not even morally!
    perhaps she hardly has sees her sister, or even was rude to her in the past (??), who knows.
    Katie ain't nobody's ATM! :P



  33. 33

    You know what is sad - my elderly parents money was actually stolen from Fretti. My father is in Hospice. Fretti sat at my parents kitchen table and took from an old man bound in a wheel chair & his diabetic wife that is his nurse 24/7. No one cares about them. They have been told "too bad". No, I don't expect Katie Holmes to help out. I'm sure Katie & Tom are staying away from this. The real story are the people in Toledo robbed and no one will do anything about it - not even the Government in Toledo.



  34. 34

    What obligation does Katie have to any of the people HE embezzeled? It doesn't matter if she has the money or not! That's just dumb!



  35. 35

    Re: luvstotango – Yeah, she's one shade lighter than all those white bankers that received billions in bailout money, so no, she wouldn't qualify. DUMBASS! You know you didn't even vote!



  36. 36

    She looks sick and malnourished. Maybe someone should be helping HER! She used to look so happy and care-free. Now she looks stressed, scared and generally miserable. Go figure…that's what you get when you marry a psycho.

  37. cush says – reply to this


    37

    Yes, agreed, why should she have to help? She earned her $. It's tragic but not her fault or problem.



  38. 38

    THIS IS WHAT THE SCIENTOLOGISTS WANT US TO BELIEVE. WHAT A COINCIDENCE THAT THIS MAN "DIES OF HEART FAILURE" AT A TIME WHEN - ACCORDING TO THE MEDIA, SHE WAS FEELING TRAPPED IN HER MARRIAGE TO TOM CRUISE. THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS WE DONT KNOW…



  39. 39

    "No chance your gonna step up and help them, huh Katie?"

    you're not your! Retard!!!!



  40. 40

    I know this is a bitchy thing to say,
    but I'm going to say it.
    Karma's a bitch.

    Re: GobbillyGoop – I'm really sorry. Wish I could help. I iz broke.
