In a move designed to dispel rumors that he is insane and his wife is imprisoned by a cult, Tom Cruise plunked down $35 million for a Beverly Hills home for himself, Katie Holmes and baby Suri Cruise, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Tom Cruise had been renting a home in Beverly Hills for the past several years, but that lease runs out next year, according to the paper.

The new address, which reportedly was not even on the market when Cruise made his offer, is described as a “traditional-style residence.”

Originally built as a 10,000-sq.-ft. structure in 1937, the house was expanded four years ago and currently contains seven bedrooms, three cells with padded walls and nine bathrooms, say those familiar with the property.

Katie Holmes’ Scientology prison without bars will at least have privacy: the pad sits on 1.3 acres, behind gates and a lengthy driveway, and boasts a tennis court and a pool.

As for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ current residence, the compound also serves as a gathering place for Cruise’s kids with ex-wife Nicole Kidman: Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12.

The actor’s mother, Mary, 70, also lives there. Yes, Tom Cruise still lives with his mother.

“Tom and Katie will be in the kitchen and make amazing popcorn with chocolate,” says a pal, Internet mogul Sky Dayton. “[Suri Cruise] is there playing. Kate feeds her a bottle and then Tom feeds her.”

In addition, Cruise and Holmes’s pals, David and Victoria Beckham have bought a multi-million-dollar house only two minutes away. They plan to move in July.
