Tom Cruise Visits Suri First Time After Split From Katie Holmes

Two weeks after Katie Holmes filed for divorce, Tom Cruise arrived in New York City on Tuesday and was photographed carrying his daughter Suri into a hotel. It is his first visit since he and Holmes, 33, reached a divorce settlement on July 7.

“He’s been dying to see her,” says a source of Cruise, who finished shooting his latest movie, Oblivion, on Sunday in California. Cruise learned of Holmes’s divorce filing while shooting the same film on location in Iceland. And although he and Suri have spoken frequently since the split, he has not seen her in person since mid-June.

Holmes and Cruise have agreed that Suri will live in New York with her mother, but the actor will see her often. “He’ll be with her whenever he can,” says a source. Currently, the pair plan to spend several days together in the city, where Suri is expected to attend a local private school this fall.


Sources close to Cruise and Holmes say the former couple will work together to make sure that hand-offs are as pleasant as possible. “They both know they are going to have to make decisions together regarding Suri for many, many years,” says the source. “And they know she loves both her parents.”

With both parents working towards what’s best for Suri, do you think everything will be smooth sailing from now on? Is there any chance that Katie Holmes will return to Tom Cruise?

TomKat Divorce: Two Parties Finally Reach Settlement

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached an agreement to settle their divorce, representatives of both film stars have confirmed.

In a joint statement released earlier on Monday, the pair said they were “working together” to settle custody of their daughter Suri, six: ”We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests,” the statement read. ”We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”

The divorce has raised speculation among Hollywood media that the couple differed on raising Suri as a Scientologist. Neither Holmes nor Cruise’s legal team would comment. A lawyer for the Church of Scientology denied last week that Cruise wanted Suri to join the Sea Organization, sometimes described as the organisation’s militaristic wing.


It was revealed last month that Holmes, 33, was filing for divorce. It was Holmes’ first marriage and Cruise’s third. He previously was married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, which both ended in divorce. He adopted two children with Kidman. Cruise also had a three-year relationship with the Spanish actress Penelope Cruz.

Paul Talbert, a family law expert, told Reuters news agency the settlement had been reached quickly for such a high-profile couple: ”Cases with so many moving parts do not routinely resolve themselves in a matter of 10 days. We obviously have one or two extremely motivated people,” Mr Talbert said. ”Nobody wins in a messy public battle, and you certainly have two concerned parents here that recognised Suri definitely loses if this is a public divorce.”

Since everything is under tight wraps, let’s speculate about the whole settlement. What conditions do you think were included in the settlement? As for Suri, who will have custody over her?

TomKat Divorce — One Nasty Trial Brewing

Katie Holmes is about to embark on her own Mission Impossible! The actress is asking for sole custody of Suri, so she can get her away from Scientology — but it’s going to take a miracle to make that happen. A source close to the newly freed actress reveals:

“Katie does not want Suri raised as a Scientologist or raised under the tenets of the church. She wants her to enjoy a ‘normal’ upbringing with a wide variety of friends and a good schooling. She believes that will not happen if she is raised as a Scientologist. She is adamant she is going to have Suri raised outside of the church.”


As adamant as Katie is about getting Suri out of the church, daddy Tom Cruise is just as — if not more — convinced that Scientology is exactly what his 6-year-old needs. Our insider says the only way Katie is getting her way, is over Tom’s dead body:

“He [Tom] truly believes in the church and its teachings and truly believes that it is imperative that his children are raised as Scientologists. Tom will move Heaven and Earth to ensure Suri stays a Scientologist, at least until she is of an age to make a decision to leave on her own accord. But until then, make no bones about it, Suri will be raised within the church”

Rumor has it Tom wanted to send Suri away to a Scientology boarding school on a ship! The Scientology ship was the last thing they fought over before the split, and — from what we hear — the fight is not close to being over!

From the looks of it, one nasty trial is coming their way. So fellow gossipers and netizens, get ready to take sides! Who are you betting on — the lovely Katie Holmes, or the drop-dead-gorgeous Tom Cruise?

Katie Holmes Divorces Tom Cruise — Scientology To Blame?

Last week, Tom Cruise took daughter Suri and son Connor to an awards ceremony in New York. Meanwhile, Katie Holmes was on the other side of the planet in Taiwan. The official reason was to promote an ice skating event. Now that Holmes filed for divorce on Friday, according to People, Holmes’ Taiwan trip seems more like a warning sign than anything else.

In recent months, the couple was rarely photographed together, even when the two were in the same city. What has been spotlighted, particularly in the Daily Mail, is Holmes’ recent style. The usually impeccably dressed actress has been photographed looking like, well, a down-to-earth mom. Untucked button-downs, jeans, loosely wet knotted hair — none of which would raise alarm bells unless you were a superstar known for a meticulously managed makeover since her marriage began more than five years ago.


One stressor on the relationship could stem from Cruise’s devotion to Scientology — it’s long been blamed for his split from Nicole Kidman – and the serious allegations of his mistreatment of lower-ranked members of the religious group, as this New Yorker article pointed out.

If Holmes thought her marriage to a superstar would be a boon to her career, she was wrong. Since their union began about six years ago, her professional life has taken a backseat to being a wife and mother. That may have been her choosing, but a recent interview with Cruise in Playboy suggests an unsettled Holmes, who wanted more from her career than just being known as a superstar’s wife.

It’s something Cruise’s second ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, was all too familiar with. When asked in an interview with Vanity Fair whether women could have both marriage and career, she said of her marriage to Cruise: “I think I had to choose. I think (the marriage) would have come down to it. I suppose it wasn’t meant to be.”

What do you think is the real reason why Katie Holmes decided to file for divorce from Tom Cruise? Ladies, would YOU date Tom Cruise despite all the Scientology stuff?
