Just How Much Is Suri Cruise Worth?

June 26th, 2006 // 18 Comments

So we’ve been wondering, and we know you have too, why we haven’t seen a photo of Suri Cruise yet? We’ve used the joke that she’s still being molded out of clay to death, but the real reason that we haven’t seen of photo of baby Suri is money. Roger Friedman is reporting that TomKat went to the celebrity weeklies just like Brangelina did, and tired to auction off the a photo shoot to the highest bidder. An offer was given in the amount of $3 million (Shiloh’s photo received $4 million), and Tom Cruise thought that amount was too low, so the offer was rescinded.

Exactly who from Cruise’s strange inner circle initiated the contact is still unknown, although I am told the enterprise was “official.” It’s likely that the Church of Scientology would have gotten a cut, too, considering they like to take 10 percent of everything from their celebrity clients.

And now that Suri is almost three months old, has her price gone up or down? The answer, says one of the mag’s experts, is down.

“Shiloh was the whole deal,” my source said. “We won’t see a baby like that again for a while.”

In other words, Britney Spears shouldn’t expect a windfall for her latest Federline product.

So because of the fact that Tom Cruise couldn’t sell his baby his baby’s photos for a set amount, she’ll be locked away in her crib for who knows how long.

Pictures of TomKat’s Baby Didn’t Sell [FOX411]

    I heard she has Down Syndrome.

  2. Cheesy

    TC needed the money for…. what possible reason? Unless he’s going to donate it all to orphans of Scientology freaks, no one wants any part o’ that purchase!

    Besides, Suri is SOOO yesterday. He missed the baby boat.

  3. Wow, this post of full of gramatical errors… what is going on w/this website?

  4. Tansy

    Grammatical and spelling errors are now par for the course here. If you complain about it, you get flamed. Doesn’t ANYONE learn proper English anymore?

  5. Why new parents wouldn’t be taking their new baby everywhere is beyond me.

  6. blondEE

    wow is that a recent picture of katie?
    b/c even though i’m not a fan of her she lost a lot of weight fast! more than the baby weight, she’s looking actually too skinny. must not be getting any food in that cage…

  7. Little Mickey

    Grammatical errors and typos are forgiveable.

    But I am detecting a rather distinct lack of zest and biting wit in the posts of late, which is a far greater offense.

    No personal offense meant to the site’s new owner/operator/head-person-thingy (honest!), but…the posts are kinda plodding and glum.

    Any chance of makin’ ‘em a li’l snappier and more sparkly?

    O.K. Let me get this straight…..

    They haven’t taken little baby Suri out with them in public because they haven’t been offered enough money for the photos.

    Baby doesn’t bond with family & friends or get socialized to world in general because the price isn’t right?

    I can understand wanting to protect the child from crazy paparazzi. Sensible.
    But they brought this child into the reality that they (TomKat) created of their own free will (i.e. working to become rich and famous).
    The kid’s gonna have to get exposed to the media circus that Daddy loves so dearly sooner or later.

    Amen to those of you discussing the grammar (I have a master’s in English and sometimes I have to step away from the screen to keep from punching it). And Little Mickey- you are SO right! This site used to have ascerbic commentary and wit worthy of Dorothy Parker. I miss the days when this was an electronic Algonquin Round Table (bonus points to those of you: a.) who can pronounce Algonquin and b.) who know what I’m referencing) I’m afraid it has imploded into a fawning, fan site with some posters (I won’t name names but you know who you are- TrueLove and the whole Brangelina barf fest???? ) who read this like gospel and then defend their nauseatingly grovelling comments like they know these people.

    Blech. Enough already. Bring back the wit. Bring back the bite. Bring back the grammar and spell-checker.

    Do I get bonus points for knowing that acerbic is spelled wrong? (PS-I know how to say it, what it refers to, and where the actual place is located)

  11. countrybabe

    He actually thinks her pictures are worth more than Shiloh. Is he kidding? Shiloh’s pictures were worth a lot because she was thought to be so beautiful. Tom ain’t pretty. Katie used to be.

    So tired of the monkeyes behind the computer, no more interns on the keyboards!!

  13. Tealeaf

    When does Suri ever go to the doctor… at Midnight, we haven’t even seen this baby hidden under blankets getting into a car. Katie has been every where with that lost smile on her face. Tom has turn Katie into a Stepford Girlfriend.

  14. maryanne29

    I think Suri’s DNA test would be worth $4 million.

    Agreed about the typos: they’re getting worse and worse and it’s really annoying and unforgivable (how hard is it to run the text through a spell checker?). The worst is really that today Jemima Kahn’s name is spelled wrong (“Gemima”). For a gossip column, at least learn how to spell the names of the people you’re gossiping about!

  16. Stoney

    Who cares about the damn typos? With as many posts you get for FREE everyday, quit your bitchin’!

    leave them alone they want privacy!

    Roger friedman, again? the man is a joke
    when Tom was n°1 Forbes ranking, he was so mad he invent he lost a role; only him in his head, absolutly no one, no Variety etc reported anything
    what a dork

    Tom never sold his kids (nic did with connor in marie claire in 02) like jolie pitt, he don’t allow his image on videos games, he never did a single commercial.

    totally opposite to the media whores jolie pitt (who should consider to really give money to charities now; at least Tom do it to the HELP program, the kids are cute in access hollywood interview, Tom take time for them and deserve the best; I don’t care about how he does it, but truly he cares and should be rewarded again for his hard work

    The thing is with Tom’s baby pictures, I think that the public has the right to see them. Just the way he paraded around with Katie, the horror we had to go through because the whole world had to see how in love he was, and then the big deal he made out of the pregnancy. I’m sure there were times when she should have been at home resting, but he dragged her along for publicity anyway. I mean how are you gonna make MI:III all about baby Suri, and have every interview be about yourself, but then deny the public pictures? With his last 2 kids he was a private person, but he is not a private person anymore, not since TomKat exploded into the media last summer.
