Katie Holmes made sure to protect her daughter as they made their way into the Children’s Museum in New York City today (July 5th). Feeling the weight of the decision she made last Friday to divorce Tom Cruise after five years of marriage, Holmes carried her six-year-old daughter, cradling her head as if she were a toddler.
Despite the media circus, Holmes seems to be doing well. ”I’m alright, thank you,” she told a New York Daily News reporter (via Us Weekly) in passing at Whole Foods yesterday (July 4th).
Both sides are going back and forth with the media regarding what caused the split-be it “irreconciliable differences” that Holmes listed in the divorce filing, or Cruise’s strong ties to Scientology and the fear that Suri was getting sucked in. TMZ reports that sources close to Cruise claim that Holmes was really digging the religion.
“She [Katie] was totally committed to Scientology. She had enthusiasm for it and would voluntarily and gladly participate in it when Tom was off shooting movies.”
“This is not a fight over religion. It’s being used as a way to hurt Tom,” the source added.
