BlindGossip – She has finally pulled the chip out of her head and is shedding her controlling hubby! And, boy, is he mad! Her attorneys are working on a “Dissolution of Contract,” not a “Dissolution of Marriage” – yet. That’s the next step. She will be asking for sole custody of the kid/s. She is not currently pregnant.
Her attorneys – especially one who worked with her predecessor - think that they have been able to work around most of the restrictions in her original business agreement with her husband. She did not fulfill the terms of the contract that would maximize her payout, but she will receive a sizeable chunk of change to keep quiet about his personal life and his special relationship with another high-profile man.
You will still see them together, albeit much less frequently, and they will continue to be very civil towards each other. They will attend events and will travel as a family when one goes to work. They will both have smiles plastered on their faces, but you will know that hers is really just a smirk, and he is absolutely seething inside over having lost control of the situation.
In the past few weeks, she has left two events separately from her husband because she was so annoyed with his behavior. Each time, she met up with her ex for several hours. While she is spending time with her ex, we do not know if they are romantically involved again.

Katie really started getting irritated with Tom during the second year of marriage. It was fun at first, playing a role, being a mother, being so high-profile, but Tom’s controlling ways were wearing her down and she wanted out.
She didn’t think that she could last the entire five years. However, the contract was a long and elaborate one, and had conditions that she needed to fulfill in order to walk away without substantial personal and professional damage.
That’s when her team came up with the concept of trying to nullify parts of the contract. Long story short, it didn’t work and it put Kate in a bad position. Tom now knew that she wanted out of her contract, and he was really angry. There was no way he was going to allow this young girl to make him look like a fool.
She could have walked away at that point, but she would have almost certainly lost custody of Suri. It was too much of a risk for her, and she was unwilling to leave the child behind. So she stayed.
This was all taking place around the same time that there were rumors of Kate being pregnant with another baby. Those rumors were completely false. Kate was never going to have another baby where Tom would be named the father, no matter what the possible financial incentives might be.
The ex with whom she spent some time was Chris Klein. Chris was having personal issues of his own around this time, and was hardly in a position to offer her a healthy alternative to her arrangement with Tom.
As you now know, Kate stayed in the marriage, kept up the happy couple act (remember, she is an actress) and counted the weeks and months until the contract was over.
Lots of you got this one right. GuyIncognito was first!
