Katie Holmes to charge for appearances

13 September 2012, 09:52

Los Angeles - Recently divorced Katie Holmes is considering charging for personal appearances.

The 33-year-old actress who chose not to take a huge payout following the breakdown of her marriage to Tom Cruise, has been looking in to ways to make money since the split, with charging for for appearances being one of her options.

A source told the New York Daily News: "People are putting the word out she's willing to do paid appearances and just seeing what opportunities come to her."

'Brands want Katie'

"Katie never did this before her split with Tom. Brands want Katie to wear their clothing for money, and then she'll get photographed in it," the source said.

Katie will receive $400 000 per year in child support until her and Tom's six-year-old daughter Suri turns 18. Tom has also set up a "sizeable trust fund" for the youngster which Katie won't be able to access.

"Katie wanted the trust fund put in place for Suri so that their daughter will be able to tap into after she turns 18 years old. Katie has absolutely no access to the money and didn't want to. She just wanted to ensure that Suri would have financial security as she becomes an adult. It's a sizable trust fund, but Suri won't be able to fully legally claim it until she is in her 30s," the source claimed.

After negotiations, Katie has recently been singed on to become the first celebrity face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics and will appear in spring 2013 print ads and displays.
