In what is probably the most boring celebrity story you’ll read today (news is slow, okay?), Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have apparently been fighting over little Suri. Tom wants to see her more often, but Katie lives in New York and doesn’t think she should keep flying to London, where Tom is currently wrapping a movie, all the time. Instead, Tom should come to the east coast to see his daughter. An argument ensued, Katie got tough, yada yada.
The actress, 34, is worried about the number of hours the six-year-old’s spending flying between her home in NYC and dad Tom, 50, who’s just wrapped his latest film in London.
‘Katie had to put her foot down,’ says a pal.
‘She realises Tom wants to see his girl, but she feels he should work round Suri’s schedule and come to them rather than the other way round.
‘They’ve now agreed Suri won’t have flights longer than eight hours.’
First of all, I’ve flown from NY to London more times than I can recount and it never takes eight hours. It’s seven on a bad day and a little over six if you catch a good tail wind, so I’m not sure how this comes into play. That being said, she’s a tiny person who is presumably going to school and I agree, Tom should use one of those Scientology alien spaceships (that’s how that whole thing works, right?) to come and see her.
This story seemingly had a happy resolution, but it must be bullshit because who in the hell would report it to the press as if anyone cared? That’s like me calling TMZ to let them know that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck couldn’t decide between KFC or Burger King for lunch but eventually Ben compromised and went to BK because he knows Jen loves her Whoppers. I mean, who cares?
