No divorce payout for Holmes

Katie Holmes did not receive a lump sum payout from ex-husband Tom Cruise because of a prenup, which shut her out of his $US250 million ($A240.30 million) fortune.

According to TMZ, Holmes received "nothing more" than an annual $US400,000 in child support for six-year-old Suri.

The $US400,000 a year - or $33,333 a month - will go towards Suri's care. Cruise will also have to pay for expenses such as medical treatments, insurance and education until her 18th birthday.

New York Daily News reported the 33-year-old actress is simply happy to be divorced from him. She has requested legal custody and primary residential custody over Suri.

The settlement also reportedly included restrictions on Suri's exposure to the controversial Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a well-known member.
