Tom Cruise: Blindsided, Not Bitter, Over Katie Holmes Divorce

by at . Comments

Simply put, Tom Cruise did not see this coming. Not one bit.

Despite various bloggers and media outlets claiming the actor and Katie Holmes agreed to some kind of five-year marriage contract, the latest issue of People quotes a source who swears Cruise was taken aback by his wife's divorce filing.

What did I not see? Cruise wondered on June 28 when news broke, this insider tells the magazine.

Tom and Suri

The most difficult part for Cruise was not seeing his daughter for nearly a month - they finally reunited in New York City yesterday - but he was off filimg a sci-fi movie called Oblivion.

"He's wanted to see her as fast as possible since this started," said the source. "He couldn't shut down production, cost people their jobs. People count on him."

Why did Tom and Katie agree to such a quick settlement? Look no further than the toddler in his arms above.

"Tom tried his best to do what's right for Suri," according to his lawyer Bert Fields, who adds that the star is "sad" but not "bitter" about the situation.

For more on this story, pick up the issue of People that goes on sale Friday.


I agree Suri is not a toddler. These pics of her being carried are sick sick sick.


What is a moroon?


Of course the lawyers says its all about his daughter. But many divorces go on for years of fighting over the children, not that its right but this was over in days. It was more about damage control. His blindside was that he thought he was in control, not that she wanted to leave him, I think he knew that


She is too old to be carried. I am hoping it is because the papps are there. They would be scarey to her.


Toddler? Suri is 6, going on 7, so she's hardly a toddler. And I have to say that if in fact, Tom was blindsided and saddened by Katie's filing for divorce, he made little to no effort to save his marriage. I didn't read about him flying from Iceland to New York or any efforts on his part to work things out. I'm not saying that the marriage could have been saved, but nothing has been reported to say that Cruise even tried.


Equality for Suri. A child needs both parents.


You know what is really sad? The fact that THG gets their story from another website and changes just a few words to the entire thing. What's even worse than that, is the fact that they post storys that are from like 1 or 2 days ago, and try to pull them off as breaking news or their own work. Morons make me sick. I give up on THG


"people coun on him" what crap. He has a contract and can be sued if he doesnt stay to film. Going to see your kid probably isnt considered a legit excuse for leaving the set during filming. Nor is your wife leaving you because you are crazy and controlling. Moroon! :-)


Toddler ! Might as well be because the brat is carried around like one!! So sad!


What's right for Suri? Well, keep her away from this phony religion for one.

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.

I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.
