Tom Cruise Is Trying to Win Back His Younger Ex-Wife, Katie Holmes

Sugar Daddy Tom Cruise And Katie HolmesYou’d think a hand­some older man like Tom Cruise would have no prob­lem mov­ing on from a bro­ken rela­tion­ship, a mar­riage even. But the 51-year-old actor is report­edly try­ing to get back into the good books with his younger ex-wife, 34-year-old Katie Holmes, who unex­pect­edly filed for divorce from him in June 2012.

At the moment, the for­mer celebrity cou­ple is said to only be com­mu­ni­cat­ing through inter­me­di­aries, but Cruise has reached out to Holmes directly by pen­ning a per­sonal, heart­felt let­ter in hopes of mend­ing their rela­tion­ship. “It’s like he’s finally rec­og­nized that Katie will always be the love of his life. It was such a shock when she left him,” says one source. “It’s taken a long time for him to come to and let go of the anger, but it seems like he finally has and he obvi­ously will have wanted to tell her that.”

Cruise’s moti­va­tion for send­ing the let­ter is about more than mak­ing things work with Holmes—he’s hop­ing that by con­tact­ing her directly, it’ll make it eas­ier for him to spend more time with their daugh­ter, Suri, for whom Holmes cur­rently has pri­mary custody.

What do you think: Should Katie Holmes recon­sider keep­ing her dis­tance from Tom Cruise, or is she mak­ing the right choice to cut him out?

    Tom Cruise is a con­trol freak and that type of man never changes. I was mar­ried to one for sev­en­teen years before I divorced him. We have been divorced for sev­eral years but we had two chil­dren together so our con­tact with each other on occa­sion still exists. He is still con­stantly try­ing to find out through my chil­dren if I am see­ing any­one. He will ask me how much money I am earn­ing now. If I make a large pur­chase, he wants to know where the money came from. I would urge Katie Holmes not to have any more con­tact with him than is absolutely nec­es­sary and to con­tinue hav­ing an inter­me­di­ary when he wants to see their daughter.

    Wow…Now I’m in shock! Mama Boy Tom Cruise needs to bump his brain out of the box, so the foggy glasses he sees through can have clar­ity, sin­cer­ity, and focus towards real fam­ily val­ues. As long as Tommy boy wraps him­self up into sci­en­tol­ogy, which is noth­ing more tban the philoso­phies of men min­gled with scrip­ture, their will always be a prob­lem. If he wants reli­gion he can stay put. But if he wants what mat­ters most, which is his family…finding that hap­pi­ness isn’t impos­si­ble but would take a bro­ken heart and a con­trite spirit.

    She shouldn’t take back the trash! He’s a loser,always has been!

    • AJ2449

      She’s a whack job. He’s bet­ter off with­out her.

  • TJ

    con­trol freaks have good intentions…

  • Grace Pat­ton

    It would be best for Tom Cruise to cut all ties off from this child and only see his daugh­ter. This is a good man. Noth­ing out­side of the ques­tion­able sci­en­tol­ogy says oth­er­wise. Holmes is a spoiled, grasp­ing Hol­ly­wood type. I Have been the vic­tim of “con­trol freaks” and they are cruel, self­ish mon­sters. This is NOT Tom Cruise.

    • Francine Simon­etti

      And how would you know that?

      • britt

        Exactly! How would you know if Katie is spoiled? She does not live in Hol­ly­wood, she lives a ‘nor­mal’ life in NYC, has no dri­ver, body­guards, man­sion. If you look at all of Tom’s pre­vi­ous relationships/marriages, he has been the con­trol­ling one.

        • markml

          If Katie were so spoiled, she never would have left. She was liv­ing the high life with Tom and she has now down­graded to a sim­pler life, and isn’t even get­ting spouse sup­port from him.

          I do think Katie was really fool­ish to marry him in the first place, and I don’t know if Tom is totally a bad guy. What I do know is that Sci­en­tol­ogy is a cult, and cults are always con­trol­ling. It doesn’t mat­ter whether Tom directly had a leash around Katie’s neck or not — the cult did, and she finally had enough with it.

          Tom by him­self, seems like a guy who is a lit­tle bit full of him­self, although not nec­es­sar­ily more than you would expect from a charis­matic movie star. I’m sure Katie might have even tol­er­ated it if it weren’t for Sci­en­tol­ogy. But I’m sure that as soon as Katie real­ized she doesn’t believe in the Sci­en­tol­ogy crap, she real­ized her mar­riage was a fraud, because Tom Cruise will always be mar­ried to Sci­en­tol­ogy. You can’t be a hard-core Sci­en­tol­o­gist and mar­ried to some­one who isn’t.

  • britt

    If he ever wants any of his relationships/marriages to lasts, he needs to leave the cult he is in.

    • Moham­mad Felafal

      both cults.…the church of scein­tol­ogy and the demo­c­ra­tic party of Obamalama

  • Nina

    No She made the deci­sion to divorce him. There had to be good rea­son for that espe­cially the way she did it. They’re always nice when they try to lure you back into their good grace. Let him go. If they can be friends that good enough for Suri

  • Liz King Bradley

    Since all we know is sec­ond, even third hand info. about either of these two peo­ple and their relationship…who cares what we think.

  • donna behaeen

    He’s the head of that cult she got out if s knows what’s. Good for her she would stay out

  • Larry Davis

    She should make him break away com­pletly from Scoentology…Then she should stary the “maybe/ con­sid­er­a­tion” process…not a minute before and at least 100 days after­wards. Just to ensure that there’s no sci-fi relapse

  • Mimi

    Nice response, Jus­tine. Peo­ple need to start open­ing their hearts! Only Katie know what is best

  • Jeff

    Per­haps Tom should see a psy­chol­o­gist to solve his problems!

    • Dev2008

      Lol Sci­en­tol­o­gists HATE psy­chol­o­gist. Remem­ber Tom’s melt­down with Matt Layer? Tom went nuts and bashed Brooke Shields for see­ing one due to post par­dum depression.

  • Moham­mad Felafal

    Tom Cruise is g.a.y. Let go of the beards tom.

  • NowYouKnow

    They need to at LEAST be able to talk on the phone and talk in per­son qui­etly and respect­fully for the sake of THEIR CHILD. The biggest gift THEY can give Suri is being able to co-parent in har­mony. Stranger things have hap­pened than for a divorced cou­ple to get back together, but if HE is wise, baby steps… baby steps.

    • Dev2008

      Sup­pos­edly they do talk. Most Sci­en­tol­o­gists are told to break off com­mu­ni­ca­tion, but Tom was given an exception.

  • Joel Moss

    Sci­en­tol­ogy would be all thumbs with­out him.

  • Dev2008

    She needs to have lim­ited con­tact with Tom. Sci­en­tol­o­gists are noto­ri­ous for record­ing and using per­sonal infor­ma­tion in law­suits against what they coin­cided “sup­pres­sive peo­ple”. Every­thing Tom does is about Sci­en­tol­ogy. He is the high­est mem­ber just under their Chair­man of the Board. They are known for destroy­ing peo­ple who leave z tac­cand have harassed for­mer mem­bers for decades. They want to take Katie down and dis­credit her. Plus Tom already has plenty of cus­tody time with Sufi that he is not tak­ing advan­tage of. They are a ruth­less orga­ni­za­tion which uses tac­tics not unlike the mafia accord­ing to arti­cles writ­ten in the St. Peters­bury press, Van­ity Fair, The New Yorker, The Hol­ly­wood reporter and FBI files.

  • Dev2008

    Yes Tom admit­ted that Sci­en­tol­ogy played a part in Katie leav­ing. Plus they were liv­ing with 10 other Sci­en­tol­o­gists in their home and Tom was always gone shoot­ing movies. Suri was school age and Katie did not want Sufi in a Sci­en­tol­ogy school but sur­rounded by peo­ple of all back­grounds which NYC pro­vides. Katie also said that she def­i­nitely wanted Suri’s Dad to be a part of his daughter’s life. Plus there was one inci­dent when Katie was dis­ci­plin­ing Sufi and one of the Scientologist’s told Katie that chil­dren were not to be dis­ci­plined. Most Moms do not want some­one else telling them how to raise their chil­dren. That is some­thing only the par­ents should do.

  • hair­dresser

    I believe that he is actu­ally gay and can’t force him­self to come out of the closet because it would ruin his image. Aside from that his reli­gion is way out there when you live in the real world! Katie was so smart to get out of that hell­ish night­mare! I give her so much credit for that, I hope she sticks to her guns!!
