Most couples amass a couple of homes during their relationship or marriage, whether to keep or to sell and move on from.
But Hollywood A-list unions usually build up quite a big property portfolio around the world, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are no exception.
And as the battle begins for custody of their little girl Suri, the question on everyone's lips – and probably theirs – is who will get which home
Will this be Katie's The 30.5million Beverly Hills mansion owned by Tom Cruise and Miss Holmes, who is believed to be entitled to property in their prenup agreement
Reports have claimed that in the couple's prenuptial agreement, Katie is entitled to the $35 million 10,286 square feet Beverly Hills mansion that she and Cruise in April 2007.
But the couple also share four other homes, two of which Cruise bought before he met Miss Holmes, and so will no doubt keep for himself.
They include a $15million brownstone in Manhattan, a $9.8million home in the Hollywood Hills bought by Cruise in 2005, a mansion in Telluride, Colorado which he bought in 1995 and a 9,477-square-foot property in Montecito, California, which Katie is also believed to be entitled to.
Moving on: This is the $15million brownstone in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York which Katie and her daughter Suri just vacated
