Katie Holmes Cruise Moves Out

The celebrity gossips at X17 reported today moving trucks were spotted entering and exiting the Beverly Hills (CA) estate that, until recently, Katie Holmes shared with her soon-to-be-ex-husband Tom Cruise. Presumably the trucks were there to haul someone's things out of the 7 bedroom and 9 bathroom mansion the kaput couple picked up in early 2007 for $30,500,000 but Your Mama don't know a thing about a thing so we really don't know for sure which of the two is schlepping their shit to storage.

Ownership of the 10,000-plus square foot residence, originally built in 1937 and situated privately and securely on 1.2 gated and fortified acres with swimming pool, tennis court and parking lot-sized motor court, is reported by the folks at X17 to be up for grabs, meaning it's not accounted for in the couple's pre-nup. The X17 folks also said the former couple's pre-nup (allegedly) grants third-ex-Missus Cruise ownership of a Montecito, CA mansion, but honestly chickadoodles, Your Mama isn't aware of any Montecito mansion owned by Mister and/or third-ex-Missus Cruise and apparently neither do some top realtors in Montecito, according to local society chronicler Richard Mineards at the Montecito Journal (page 19).

Since their divorce announcement last month Mister Cruise has been spotted on a feverish hunt for a high-priced home in some of the more affluent suburbs around New York City such as Snedens Landing, NY and Greenich, CT and third-ex-Missus Cruise has settled into a rented apartment in a celebrity-friendly building in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood.

If I were Katie I'd fight tooth and nail for this place! Gorgeous estate in the best area of BH! I just hope Tom hasn't cast a Scientology spell on it.

Why do all his houses look like the Scientology building? creepy.

1.2 acres for 30M? I would hope it is in "the best area of BH" per 1:17. Katie deserves Montecito and much more. If she did get the Montecito property it will soon be on the market. High maintenance living is not in this smart girls future.

This is in prime prime location in Beverly Hills North of Sunset and close to Weho (wink wink) Tom and Katie's agent Kevin Huvane lives directly behind their house that was featured in last month's A.D. by designer Michael Smith. Stunning Estates on this stretch of Calle Vista and Doheny Road. Worth every penny.

5:04 Thank you for setting me straight "wink wink". I fear to imagine what Huvane paid for Smith's design, however any good gay decorator could have done a much better result.

I heard that Cruise was looking at an estate on Centre Island on the North Shore of Long Island.

I knew Huvane's estate was being rebuilt wasn't sure if he ever sold it. My money says it will be for sale within a year now that the neighoring house at 1115 finally sold for $17m after being on the market quite sometime.

Weird thing is it doesn't look like Huvane expanded the house much... small house for prime lot / location.... 7.100 sq.ft. on 1.44 acres.

Byron Allen bought the house next door at 1115 Calle Vista.

Some Hollywood power players grouped together....

Tom, Huvane and Allen. All three men could make or break you in Hollywood.

Jerry Weintraub also lives right below those three. It's funny how certain neighborhoods attracts the same kind of people.

As they say, "Birds of a feather....."

Won't matter if Katie cleaned out the bathroom cabinets and took the shaving gear as Tom will be wanting a new beard soon.

Crooze, smooze. Not an interesting person. I think he was all summed up by his first agent who said while he lived at her place he spent all day in a G-string admiring himself in her mirrors. But who can account for American tastes?

Does anyone have the link or pics to the interior of the Calle Vista house? I tried Radaronline and they're link doesn't work anymore.

Much appreciated. :)

According to one website, Tom Cruise bought a home at 1565 East Valley Road in Montecito. Maybe its under a trust or fake business name?

Petra's said...

1565 East Valley is owned by an entity called "E.V. Marvista LLC" and it has a San Fran address. So it may be, but it could also very well not be.
