Katie Holmes’ Public Breakdown! Is something seriously amiss with Tom Cruise’s ex?
FINDING HER DISHEVELED, WORN OUT AND BEDRAGGLED, STAR’S SPIES CAUGHT KATIE HOLMES ON THE VERGE OF TEARS AS SHE STEPPED OUT IN NEW YORK.
She’s stopping traffic for all the wrong reasons! On Dec. 8, Katie Holmes was spotted wandering the streets of New York City in pajamas and an oversize coat, with dark smudgy circles under her eyes, and clutching a bag of comfort food from Zabar’s. Now sources are spilling that the delirious outing is another indication of the Dawson’s Creek alum’s impending breakdown — all tied to the stress of her private romance with Jamie Foxx and the demands of her testy 12-year-old, Suri Cruise. “Katie is weary to the bone and losing sleep over everything that’s going on in her life,” dishes an insider. “The dark circles under her eyes show it. Her appetite’s gone, and she looks terrible.” The source says Katie, 40, has become fixated on locking down Jamie once and for all — after dating secretly for nearly five years — at exactly the same moment that Suri has become dead set on reconnecting with her dad, Tom Cruise, and that Katie’s a nervous wreck at the idea of her past and future lives colliding.
DADDY DRAMA “Suri’s at an age where she needs a father, and she’s asking a lot of questions,” the source says. Katie has told Suri about their escape from Scientology and explained that according to the cult’s ideology, Tom, 56, now considers them “suppressive people” — but Suri is hearing none of it. “She’s demanding to live with Tom,” says the insider. “Even though Katie’s bond with her is stronger than ever, she can see how much this affects Suri, and that troubles her.”
HOLMES IS WHERE THE HEART IS When Katie isn’t worrying about the exhusband she’s done with, she’s angsting about what the future holds for her and Jamie — and Suri. “Katie’s trying so hard to be patient and not rock the boat with Jamie, but all she wants is to get married and have a normal relationship,” the source confides, while Katie’s camp denies the chatter. “She’s tired of all this sneaking around. They were talking about getting married in Paris, but now he’s flip-flopping on that, and she just can’t understand why he’s passionate one day and cold the next. It’s driving her crazy with anxiety.” The source says that while Katie is confident it’ll all work out, friends are urging the actress to take better care of herself in the meantime. “Katie’s a strong woman,” adds the pal. “She’ll pick herself up in no time, but right now she’s feeling completely overwhelmed.”
