Miss Katie Holmes has had complete control of this whole break up with Tom Cruise from the jump, and all she did was file for divorce. Her mouthpiece did say that she wanted privacy, and that she is just concerned about Suri, but she never said anything about Tom. Nope. The rest of the world filled in the blanks and he’s been playing defense the entire time! Everything from his work, to his possible fling with a model, and his Scientology beliefs and Suri.
But earlier today, Tom and Katie’s people released a JOINT statement.
“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.” [via ICYDK]
This has to be one of the most INTERESTINGLY worded statements I have ever read in regards to a divorce. I’m especially interested in the part that mentions their “respective beliefs”. We all know this is in reference to Tom’s ties to Scientology.
I just hope that things go ok for Suri and that Katie will be safe, now.
