Rob Shuter: Tom and Katie Divorcing
Rob Shuter said that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing and said it is a really interesting divorce and as it goes on it’s going to get more interesting. Katie filed for divorce on Friday. Shuter said what is shocking to a lot of people is Tom Cruise did not leave his movie set in Iceland and rush back and try to save this marriage. Many people saying he was blindsided by this, but were surprised he did not fly back to save it.
Katie Holmes has moved into a new apartment in Chelsea and there are lots of press there and NY Post said people from the Scientology Center are following Holmes and monitoring her. They say this is not true and it isn’t happening, but reporters have said they seen them there. After 7 years, Katie Holmes fired her PR people and returned to the people that made her famous before she met Tom Cruise.
