Poor Mr. and Mrs. Holmes

Forget whatever it was Tom Cruise told Diane Sawyer about his relationship with Katie Holmes' parents.

The truth is, Katie's parents, Martin and Kathleen Holmes, didn’t get to see baby Suri up close and personal until the day of the "Mission: Impossible 3" premiere in Los Angeles. That would have been May 4. Suri was born in the late afternoon on April 17.

You do the math. That's two and a half weeks. The Holmeses were specifically not invited until Tom was back home in Los Angeles after his worldwide promotional tour and could monitor the baby’s first visit with her maternal grandparents. Tom’s mother, Mary Jo Mapother-South, was there for the delivery. So were Tom’s sisters. But, as widely reported, the Holmeses were at their vacation home in Florida when they got the news that their daughter had given birth to their first grandchild.

“They are heartbroken,” says the source who filled me in on this, and this person knows what they’re talking about. But no one who’s interviewed Cruise for "M: I3" has dared asked these questions. Instead, they’ve let Cruise refer to Katie as “Kate” and do all the talking for her. The Holmeses are scared to speak out, say friends, for fear that they will be cut off even more from Katie and Suri.

You Said

What is wrong with Kate?Does she have no say so in what is going on. I can't believe that she would tolerate Tom's controlling way.If I was kate, I would take Suri and head for home. Life with someone that controlling will only lead to heartache.

Says: Jan blake at May 15, 2006 12:16 PM

Carefull what you ask for.... you(she in this case) just might get it!

I have to sat that I am saddened by the fact that Tom is such a self-rightous turd master. the next movie he does will be M:I4 converting her parents to scientology.

Says: Tina at May 15, 2006 12:30 PM

If that were my daughter and new grandchild it would be a Mission Impossible to keep me away.That is just wrong.

Says: Char at May 15, 2006 02:21 PM

that is heartbreaking how someone can be so controlled and even worse not to let her parents see the little baby
run kate run this is the worst thing u could do is to be with someone who will run ur life now think how bad it will be later
take ur baby and repent in the church

Says: nikki at May 15, 2006 02:34 PM

Katie I think it is awful how you let Tom treat your parents. They have just as much right to see their granddaughter as TOm's family. It is such ashame you let scientology intefere with y our family life like that. And what is up with Tom "monitoring" the first visit. WHo the hell does he think he is King of the house!!! Run girl RUN!

Says: kimmie at May 15, 2006 03:09 PM

i had my mother in the delivery room for my first child. i cannot fathom having had my ex mil in there, let alone my ex sils. *shudders* they must have drained her brain with their e meter at the scientology center.

Says: cynde at May 15, 2006 04:46 PM

Tom is turning into his father, and he picks younger women whom he thinks he can control and manipulate much like his cult religion does. However, now a baby is involved. It sounds like Nicole K has been cut off from her 2 kids w/ their scientology upbringing/school. RUN, Katie, RUN...

Says: Linda Stanley at May 15, 2006 04:48 PM

Tom Cruise is a certified nut-case. It's a shame that Katie Holmes has fallen for this poor excuse for a human being. I feel sorry for the child, and her parents the most.

Says: Frank at May 15, 2006 07:02 PM

what is with these freaks? so some boy-man decides to tell you that he loves you. oh, that is surely life's fulfillment, everything he touches is gold, oh i can't live without him. yikes, this guy is a bleeping scientologists- an organization that exists for nothing more than money and to feed weirdo alien lies to its members. people need to be warned- and KatiE needed to wake up.

Says: at May 15, 2006 08:36 PM

Dump him, Katie- you are going to be so miserable with this control freak. Take Suri and go back home to your parents or they will never see her and you will never have a life.

Says: ellen at May 15, 2006 09:56 PM

I simply CANNOT believe Katie is letting tom controll her. She is "taken in" by him right now , & SO immature, that she is OBVIOUSLY NOT THINKING clearly! Katie, get your head on straight BEFORE it's TOO LATE , will you PLEASE?????? DO NOT MARRY HIM!!

Says: at May 15, 2006 09:57 PM

katie is too good for tom!i think this is a paid arrangement ,which was set up by spielberg!due to the fact of tom criuse being gay.tom wanted an innocent girl with no track record of permucutuious behavior.his choices were penelope cruz or katie !KATIE YOU NEED YOUR SWEET MOTHER TO BE WITH YOU.YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU AND IS SO PROUD!TAKE CARE OF YOU AND THAT BABY.TAKE THE MONEY AND POWER,SHARES IN DREAMWORKS AND HAUL ASS!I LOVE YOU TRULY...

Does anyone else find it ironic that the most outspoken critic of psycho-theraputic drugs is the person that needs them the most? In my experience (I used to work in mental healthcare) all manic depressives are like that. Tom needs to get back on the Depakote.

Says: at May 16, 2006 06:19 AM

I hope this isn't true. How sad!!!!

Says: Tracee at May 16, 2006 06:26 AM

Anyone who decides to have a baby and hasn't considered even the remotest possibility of marriage has a problem already add to that mixture a man who is controlling and possessive and you have a disaster waiting to happen. Katie WAKE UP and Take your baby and run!!!!!!!!!

Says: Pat at May 16, 2006 08:37 AM

No one could keep me away from my daughter and my first grandchild, not even Tom Cruise. And who is to say that he even tried to. Shame on you all for assuming the worst, he invited his mother and sister and not her mother and father. Maybe his family was there because they took it upon themselves to be there like most parents and family would. You don't get invited to a birth, you go to a birth. Picture me not being there. Sounds to me like THEY are kinda strange.

Says: VJCH at May 16, 2006 08:44 AM

i think tom is a real sicko h eneeds help and someone better get katie outta there she doest hav eto suffer bec hes an idiot god open her eyes and tell ehr to leave

Says: SANDY at May 16, 2006 09:10 AM

Oh come on ! How much more confirmation do we need to prove that Tom Cruise is a munipulative, power-hungry doofwad with a serious Napolean Complex. Poor Katie, she thought she was getting her dream and instead recieved a nightmare that is Tom. Pfft, when my daughter has a child, no man is going to keep me from my daughter and grandchild. Tom needs to get his bloated-ego driven head out if his butt ! And if Nicole still loves ... let her have him ! She obviously was able to deal with him and put up with his many moods. Katie honey, get Suri and get the hell away from him. Mend the bridges that Tom made you burn and let you're family help you.

Says: Tammy at May 16, 2006 10:49 AM

The babyisnoteven Tom'sbiologicalchild.Tom is steril its a fact.That is why heand Nicole adopted 2kids and why he filed for divorce when she had a miscarriage. He took a nice catholic girl who wantedto maintain her virginity till she was married and had herartificially inseminated beforeshe was married.

Says: sheryl at May 16, 2006 11:13 AM

Tom took abeautiful catholic girl whoplanedon keeping her virginity until she was married,and had her artificially isemenated,pregnant,and giving birth all beforemarriage.He is sterile which is why he and Nicole adopted both their kids and why he divorced her when she had a miscarriage.He will not let Katies parents spend much time with her until they convert toscientology.

Says: sheryl at May 16, 2006 11:25 AM

All I want to say is that in the long run, the grandchild will be the one who suffers the most. I went through a similar tug-of-war visiting right with my parents and grandparents...The only difference was that there wasn't as much money & power involved...All it did was cause pain for many years...Tom, stop being such an controlling ass!

Says: liz at May 16, 2006 12:18 PM

Bad Journalism. Knowing the parties personally, I know that your report was FALSE. Shame on you for leading readers to believe that Tom would ever ever keep their child away from the grandparents - family is sacred to him and he is beyond generous. Shame on the Journalists.

Says: gerry at May 16, 2006 12:30 PM

Sadly, Katie will wise up when she wises up. Who knows, they are both pretty strange, maybe it will work.

As far as the baby and grandparent thing, I have had that happen in my own family and no one was "heartbroken."

We really don't know what went on do we?

Says: Isabel at May 16, 2006 12:32 PM

Personally I've always found him a little strange. I was outraged at his comments about Brooke Shields-is he really that ignorant?!? Depressions medicine does help people. By the way I'm sure he's on Viagra or else they just don't have sex. I wouldn't touch Tom with a one hundred foot pole.

Says: Stacy at May 16, 2006 01:05 PM

What is soooo sad is that everyone believes everything they read....leave these people alone to live their lives..

Says: trac at May 16, 2006 01:19 PM

LOL listen trac...... you are believing what everyone is writing in here!

that is soooo sad.
lol.... I get a kick out of these posts.

Says: Tina at May 16, 2006 02:52 PM

It's incredible how Tom Cruise can be on the top of the world for years, and suddenly fall in disgrace. It only took one outspoken belief, and the public was ready to pounce. I honestly feel Hollywood and the media were anxiously awaiting an incident or remark to dethrone Cruise.After all he had been on top for so long, and I am certain people are finding immense satisfaction in these unfortunate, bizarre, and very hard to digest rumors.
Why don't they attack people worthwhile attacking? Bush,Rumsfeld,Paris Hilton...

Says: Kathleen at May 16, 2006 10:25 PM

Katie is still rather time as she grows and matures...she will see what a hole Tom is

Says: Patty at May 16, 2006 10:40 PM

Hey, do you suppose that Tom tells Kate when she's allowed to take a crap, or does she still do that for herself?

Says: Danner at May 17, 2006 12:04 AM

Is it me or did everyone forget the reason that Tom and Nicole adopted children. He said over and over that he could not have children. Then here is Katie with his child. I find this a little strange and it has never NEVER been addressed. Also part of the reason for the divorce was that Nicole got pregnant (later had a miscarriage).Again it was stated he could not have children so there was the question of who daddy was. Makes you wonder......

Says: KEL at May 17, 2006 07:08 AM

It is surprising that Tom who always seems to be this private person become so public with his personal lives... Oh MI3 had to be promoted. and for the life of me, how come his two previous wives never give birth to his" Biological" child/children. Oh they refused to go along with the charade. In the end the child is the one who will suffer and Katie my dear you cannot be so naive about life, but then again you will be receiving 33million. I guess you are selling your child and your soul. For you to be a true mother you need to understand motherhood and you need to look at your mother..she raised you.

Says: Susannah at May 17, 2006 07:08 AM

Congrats Kate! You let him lead you around for a while, produce a biological child then walk away with millions. Just like that Rowe woman. If only we all could be so lucky!!!

Says: Terri at May 17, 2006 07:09 AM

The man is a whack job this is why you give relationships time, before you bring kids into the mix. As far as im concerned katie is stupid for getting herself involved with a man, who thinks child birth should be peaceful. When you come into a relationship you need to except the person as they are. He already knows he has control over her cause she is a freaking baby. He got her to change religions for god's sake! He is treating her the way he wishes he could have treated nicole. Quite frankly im getting tired of him he is annoying the heck out of me.
