Yo, maybe Scientology DOES really provide spiritual fulfillment … in the form of cold hard cash!
Regardless of the family turmoil Tom Cruise is currently engaged in, the man tops Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s Highest paid actors, earning $75 million between May 2011 and May 2012.
DAYUM, Tommy C.!
Now, this of course could play a defining role in Katie Holmes and Tom’s divorce, especially as Katie has filed in New York which has different regulations in terms of child support, custody, annual income, etc than California.
Technically, in the state of NY, parents of the child in question pay 17% of the couple’s total income in the way of child support…
BUT there is a cap at $400,000, so it’s highly unlikely Katie would get $9 million, and it’s not like Katie needs the $$$ anyway.
Tom’s gynormous paycheck puts him $38 million ahead of Adam Sandler and Leonardo DiCaprio, who tied for second place on the Forbes list.
Well, congrats guys!
And obviously, Tom will funnel a sh*tload of his payoff back into Scientology - it's not random that the church target the rich and likely-to-be powerful…
