The Grazia is reporting that Tom, who is pictured above on July 30, has lost 14 pounds in just the last couple of weeks.
“Tom’s friends and family have urged him to take a break, but he has brushed off their concern,” says a source. “He is refusing to slow down and is trying to soldier on. He doesn’t seem to be himself. He hasn’t been working out like he normally does and doesn’t appear to be eating well at all. His clothes just hang off him.”
The source continues: “His way of dealing with this is to throw himself into his work, but as a result he’s not looking after himself, and he risks cutting himself off from people who care about him and want to make sure he’s OK.”
Meanwhile, E! News is confirming today that the divorce between Tom, 50, and Katie, 33, was finalized on Monday in New York City.
Not that surprising as the former couple was able to hash out divorce settlement in early July, just a week after Katie filed for divorce.
It has been reported that Katie gets nothing in the agreement when it comes to spousal support though she will be getting $10 million in child support for 6-year-old daughter Suri over the next 12 years. She also reportedly received primary legal and physical custody.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE THE DIVORCE & NEGATIVE PRESS IS GETTING TO TOM?
Katie Holmes is a free b*tch and the church of Scientology can finally breathe a sigh of relief!
Why? Well Katie’s attorney is confirming she and husband Tom Cruise have reached the fastest divorce settlement in the history of celebrity divorces
as Tom doesn’t want any of his dirt to come out. Even more shocking at the speed this settlement was reached considering Tom’s camp has been leaking stories about how “blindsided” he was by Katie’s divorce filing.
Katie‘s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe released the following statement to PEOPLE -
“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life. This result could not have been achieved without the hard work of my partner Gary Skoloff and our co-counsel Allan Mayefsky, Michael Mosberg and Larry Trachtenberg of Aronson Mayefsky and Sloan and Peter Walzer and Chris Melcher of Walzer & Melcher in California.
We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution. The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life.”
Translation – ‘We had Tom and Scientology by the balls hence the reason we were able to come to this quick divorce agreement. Katie played this excellently and got everything she wanted from Tommy Boy who did not want this to drag on for any minute longer. In return, all Katie had to do was release a joint statement with Tom regarding everything.’ End translation.
Indeed just moments before the couple came to a divorce agreement, they released a joint statement regarding their 6-year-old daughter Suri.
“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”
Today’s events come as no shocker though I am surprised they were able to come to this settlement as quickly as they did. Here’s to hoping Katie settled for nothing less than supervised visitation with Tom when it came to Suri.
A former Scientology official came out last week stating he witnessed the “religion” brainwashing Nicole Kidman’s adopted kids with Tom into thinking their mom was a sociopath. Here’s to hoping they don’t try the same with Suri.
For the time being, the details of the divorce settlement which also includes custody issues, are being kept under wraps. But we will bring it to you the minute they become public!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU THINK KATIE GOT WHAT SHE WANTED?
Fast forward to today and many are still wondering if the marriage between the couple was ever real to begin with. The latest cover of the National Enquirer reads “Katie Ends Their Sham Marriage.”
The article mostly states Katie felt the marriage was a “sham” because while Tom, 50, worked overtime to maintain the image of a happy family man to the public, she was lonely and unhappy, feeling like a single mom as she mostly had to care for 6-year-old daughter Suri by herself with Tom traveling so much for work.
Yes, the Enquirer seems to be ignoring the big elephant in the room, ignoring the questions most people want answers to, such as – Is Tom Cruise gay? Was Katie Holmes a beard? Was this nothing more than an arranged marriage?
Well let’s dig into those questions shall we! So is Tom gay? The jury is still out on that as unlike his fellow Scientology pal John Travolta, there has hardly been any major reports or allegations by male masseurs about gay sex with Tom (there has been a ton of rumors, but nothing concrete and definitely no lawsuits). I have my personal opinion on this, but I’ll let you keep reading before you draw your own conclusion!
The second and third question is was Katie just a beard and was this nothing short of an arranged marriage? Well according to Andrew Morton, who wrote an unauthorized biography about Tom, the answer to the third question is yes! The fearless Andrew has confirmed the widely rumored speculation that back in 2005, Tom did indeed audition a number of actresses to play the role of his wife… in real life.
In an article he recently wrote for the NY Post, Andrew states that Tom did “auditioned” actresses Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, and Scarlett Johansson, to be his wife but they all ran for
their lives the hills. Sofia, 40, was reportedly very frightened of the Scientology “religion” while the others were just all around freaked out.
Eventually Tom settled on a then 26-year-old Katie, who had just ended her engagement to Chris Klein and had revealed in past interviews that Tom was her childhood crush. What followed afterward was a change in Katie’s demeanor, mostly evident in an interview she did for W Magazine (this interview is a must read and will definitely give you a CLEAR answer on just how “real” this relationship was) in late 2005 during which Katie appeared very robotic when it came to answering questions about Tom, repeatedly giving the same answers over and over and over and over again. Even more peculiar, Kate had a Scientology babysitter with her the entire time she was being interviewed.
The rumor mill has alleged Tom offered Katie a 5-year-marriage contract reportedly worth over $15 million, and the contract required her to have a baby and had a no sex agreement between the couple. The rumors of the 5-year marriage contract came out back in 2005 when the couple started dating. They eventually tied the knot in November, 2006, and after five years of marriage, Katie has filed for divorce. What are the chances?
So we have to ask, why would a handsome, alleged heterosexual, and successful movie star need to audition for a
beard wife? And allegedly require her to sign a marital contract which allegedly offered a no-sex clause? We’ll let you draw your own conclusions from the above!
There’s also a new article floating around in which Tom’s former manager/mentor from the 80s Eileen Berlin claims Tom use to parade around in a g-string while also repeatedly revealing her surprise over Tom’s marriages and her shock over the fact that each of them lasted as long as they did. Feel free to read between the lines.
While I do believe this marriage was definitely a sham, I still feel pretty bad for Katie as I don’t think she truly realized what she was getting herself into. I don’t think she realized just how
freaky intense the Scientology “religion” is or what this would do to her as a human being. I do believe she finally snapped out of it and the love for her daughter Suri was enough to get her to leave the unhealthy situation.
The Lainey Gossip blog has reported that despite the alleged 5-year contract, Tom and his people allegedly begged Kate to agree to one more year of marriage, which she allegedly agreed to. So this is the reason Tom was truly blind sided by the divorce filing, because he truly believed Katie was planning to hang in there for a little bit longer.
As for the latest on the divorce case, Us Weekly is reporting that Tom is currently in “major crisis mode” as pretty much everyone is Team Katie and see her as a victim who finally broke free of her controlling captor.
Tom, who “is on the phone with his lawyers 24/7,” and his team “are in major crisis mode,” a source close him tells Us Weekly. “Tom’s whole life . . . is being torn apart,” the source adds. What is that sound you’re hearing? Yep that’s the sound of nobody feeling bad for Tom! If you recall, Tommy boy also blindsided his ex-wife Nicole Kidman with a divorce back in 2001. So there’s that thing called karma…
As for Katie, 33, Us Weekly is also reporting she is very determined to get sole custody of Suri. “She is dead set on keeping custody of Suri,” a Katie source tells Us Weekly.
“Katie is not going to compromise on certain issues, all regarding Suri,” the source adds. Good for her.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE TOM’S MARRIAGE WAS A SHAM? DO YOU BELIEVE THE GAY RUMORS?
UPDATE – Did Gawker out Tom Cruise? Below is the heading they used for an article written on Monday (July 9) following the news of the divorce settlement -
“Tom Cruise Thanks Third Wife for Silence About His Craziness and Love of Dudes with Divorce Settlement”
UPDATE #2 – We found an old interview Mimi Rogers gave in which she stated Tom never wanted to have sex with her during their short lived marriage from 1987 to 1990. Mimi was Tom’s first wife. Below is a quote from Mimi’s interview with Playboy -
“He was seriously thinking of becoming a monk,” Mimi told Playboy. “He thought he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument, but my instrument needed tuning, and we had to split.”
Just a little over a week after Katie Holmes shocked the world… and her husband Tom Cruise by filing for divorce, and sole custody of their daughter Suri, TMZ is now reporting that settlement talks are currently underway.
Sources close to the couple confirm there are no immediate plans for either party to go to court. As for what the settlement talks are about, it is for a full divorce settlement. Meaning the lawyers are currently negotiating child custody, visitation, child support and a property settlement.
While Tom’s lawyers had stated they wanted to transfer the divorce case to California, the sources reveal if all goes well, the entire settlement could be completed in New York, which works well in Katie’s favor.
PEOPLE is also confirming the news with a source claiming that Tom “doesn’t want his family dragged through the mud… They both love their daughter.”
In fact Katie has been spotted at her lawyers Allan Mayefsky and Michael Mosberg’s offices today (Saturday) for the second day in a row.
When it comes to custody, the source says that while Tom might be open to Suri living primarily with Katie, he would still need a lot of visitation: “There’s no world where Tom won’t be seeing Suri.”
If I were Katie, I wouldn’t agree to anything other than supervised visitation. All it takes is a couple of hours of brainwashing during Suri’s visit with Tom in CA for her to be brainwashed into thinking her mom is a sociopath. Just ask Nicole Kidman.
Must say I’m not surprised Tom is trying to settle this in private. He’s probably realized he has everything to lose while Katie doesn’t. In fact, reports have stated that Scientologist are admitting in private that Katie is their biggest public nightmare to date. Fact is Katie has tremendous public support and everyone sees her as a victim. Tom on the other hand is still on shaky grounds with his reputation following his couch jumping antics years ago.
As for Katie’s incentive to settling this in private, I think she’s just ready to move on, and start her new life & career with her daughter. I predict when this is all said and done, Katie will get everything she wants including full custody of Suri.
