Outraged actress NICOLE KIDMAN is threatening to tell courts of TOM CRUISE's lacking of ability in the bedroom if he fails to hand over half of his fortune in a divorce settlement.
The EYES WIDE SHUT (1999) redhead is angered by Cruise's refusal to part with half of his estimated $300 million (£200 million) fortune and has now vowed to go all the way in divorce court, giving intimate details of what went on during their 10-year marriage.
Friends say one shattering secret would be how Cruise, 38, often behaved coldly towards his stunning wife - and was too busy for romance.
A pal says, "Nicole complained to friends, 'Tom would often go weeks without touching me.' "She said that he was such a career-driven man that, to her, it appeared his work was much bigger deal than sex."
In her time of need, sources say, lonely Nicole turned to hunky personal trainer PETER CRONE, who gave her a shoulder to cry on. The friend continues, "Nicole needs to be loved. Marriage to Tom was one disappointment after another for her. Tom could be very distant." (RGS/TS/ES)
