Well, Thomas James Burris, who is notorious for his marriage in bad forms to Karen Carpenter, used to be an American real estate agent. But, of course, he rose to fame for marrying Carpenter. And, as of June 2020, Burris is still believed to be alive but maintains a low-key profile.
Singer and drummer Karen Carpenter was married to her former husband Thomas James Burris for less than fifteen months. Burris and Carpenter wed in August 1980 after their summer romance blossomed quickly despite their huge age gap of nine years.

Karen reportedly had no intention of ever getting married or staying in a relationship since she believed her busy schedule would always come in the way. But, of course, that changed when she met Thomas. Sadly, her whirlwind romance took a toll on her.
Following her marriage, Carpenter reportedly later found out her husband she thought was the one for her was actually abusive, parasitic, and emotionally unavailable. Apparently, Thomas used and asked for Karen's money even when she was only surviving on bonds and stocks.
As a matter of fact, he also borrowed $50,000 from his then wife. Thomas and his former late wife never shared children together as he had vasectomized. Burris and Carpenter split in September 1981 after a serious heated argument at a restaurant during a family dinner. But the drummer only filed for divorce in October 1982.

In addition, Burris was already a married and divorced man before he met Karen and a father to his son he shared with his first wife.
As a real estate agent, Thomas James Burris must have made a great deal of money. However, Burris's working and educational background are pretty much a mystery, and thus it can't be exactly said on how much he earned or the total figure of his net worth.
And, also since his marriage ended on bad terms with Karen Carpenter, Burris didn't inherit much from their divorce. Speaking of which, after their split, Karen left her marital home and didn't seek financial gain either. And, before her death, she left most of her wealth to her family.
Carpenter is believed to have left her family a wealth of more than $20 million (calculated in 2020) for her brother, Richard Lynn Carpenter, and parents.
