Thursday gossip roundup: TomKat will reunite for Suri’s first day of school

The family in happier times.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are set to reunite for the first time since Holmes filed for divorce when their daughter, Suri, starts school in New York City after Labor Day, according to Radar Online. “Tom and Katie have been speaking on the telephone regarding Suri, and Katie has been very supportive of Tom wanting to be there when Suri goes to her new school for the first time,” a source says. “It’s a big moment in Suri’s life and Katie wants Tom to be a part of that. Of course, there will be security concerns and Tom doesn’t want to disrupt other parents and students at the school with his presence, which means he could very well slip in and out via a back entrance. Katie doesn’t want Suri to suffer because of their divorce and both parents are truly putting the needs of their little girl ahead of their own feelings.”

Two months after a bottle-throwing brawl erupted between their entourages at a New York nightclub, Chris Brown and Drake find themselves slapped with a $16 million lawsuit for being responsible for the fracas, according to the New York Daily News. A lawyer for Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has ties to the club, says the two R&B stars are ultimately responsible for their followers’ behavior. “It’s their posse, and they’re in charge, and to the extent that they could have controlled or dissipated whatever was going on, we don’t believe they did,” he tells the newspaper.

It turns out Justin Theroux hedged his bets when proposing to Jennifer Aniston by doing it on his birthday, according to People magazine. “He’s been dying to do it,” a friend of the actor and screenwriter says. “His friends knew it was coming.” The moment came while the pair was enjoying a day in New York City, and after Aniston’s heartfelt “yes,” they reportedly rushed to share the news with their families and close friends. “Everyone is really excited for them,” the source says. “It’s amazing to see how happy Justin makes Jen, and everyone was always hoping that he would propose.”

Fans are speculating which ex-boyfriend Taylor Swift wrote her new single, “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” about, but at least one is taking himself out of the running. “I can tell you it’s not about me,” Joe Jonas, who dated Swift in 2008, says during an interview with Washington, D.C. area radio station 94.7 Fresh FM. “I can say it’s not about me because I don’t think we ever tried another time.”

Former “Blossom” star Mayim Bialik was hospitalized after being involved in a traffic collision with a car full of Chilean tourists in Hollywood Wednesday, according to TMZ. Eyewitnesses say that after the “extremely loud” collision, Bialik was “crying really hard” and there was “blood everywhere.” The actress’ hand was reportedly wrapped in a towel in an effort to stabilize a wound to her finger. “Her finger was almost completely severed,” a source says. “It was just hanging there.” Bialik was rushed to a nearby hospital, where the finger was able to be saved. Later that afternoon, she tweeted that she “will keep all my fingers.”
