Thursday gossip round up: Is Katie Holmes using Suri ‘as a weapon’ against Tom Cruise?
What started as a rather titillating celebrity divorce is now devolving into a sadly familiar one. Tom Cruise has “absolutely no contact with Katie,” according to website TMZ, with Cruise talking only to daughter Suri, 6, on the phone, once a day. Things are “really bitter now,” the source tells the site, with Katie “using Suri as a weapon.” Meanwhile, photographers caught Holmes laughing at an ice cream parlor with Suri as bodyguards stood on watch. “He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years,” she told Elle magazine, in their just-released issue, which may have offered clues about the divorce-to-come. “I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that. I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier,” she continued. “I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.”
With Cruise in the news, the paps are suddenly interested in Nicole Kidman, his ex, again. They caught her having—gasp!—dinner with her husband, singer Keith Urban, at a Florida restaurant, according to Us Magazine. The 45-year-old divorced Cruise in 2001, after an 11 year marriage.

I could not have done it without him.”
