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.

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.

@Sharon: We apologize for this horrible factual mistake. Please send us the official definition of "toddler" and we'll make the change.
Perhaps then we will not be such "moroons."

Toddler. too funny. I understand holding her for the paps but their is a such thing as a back door. They parade her around everyday for the paps. I understand she should be able to leave her home but it just looks like photo ops to me. Katie is getting rich and so is the trashy tabs. I dont have be a part of a cult to have a different opinion.

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.
