Star claims Katie Holmes wants trial separation

Star magazine is claiming that Katie Holmes wants a trial separation of sorts from Tom Cruise. And really, could you blame the poor dear? By Star’s account, Katie has finally had it with Tom and his maniacally controlling ways. I’m guessing her shopping budget just isn’t enough to compensate for being married to a crazy person anymore. Star is still claiming that Katie is in final negotiations to star in All My Sons on Broadway, and wants to move to Manhattan as part of a trial separation. Tom has told her it’s fine if she goes – but he’s coming with her.

Star also says that part of the reason Katie wants a separation is that she and Tom have been locked in a power struggle over how to raise Suri. Tom wants to make all the rules –which doesn’t sound like any big surprise.

… According to our sources, Katie, who was offered a role on Broadway, is trying to break away from her controlled life under the watchful eyes of her husband and move to Manhattan in what will be a sort of trial separation.

“She desperately needs to be on her own for a while, but there’s no way Tom is going to let her take Suri away,” an insider tells Star. “There’s no way he’ll allow it. He just doesn’t want Katie — or Suri — out of his sight for long. He told her that if she goes to New York, fine, but he goes with her.”

As much as I’d love this to be true, it sounds like complete B.S. Celebitchy pointed out that the tabloids are always quick to write a “marriage in trouble” story whenever a couple so much as takes a vacation apart. Star is one of the worst offenders. The Daily News noted today that although Tom and Katie are staying in different states right now, everything seems to be fine with the couple.

Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes have been living apart, we hear, but not because of any marital discord. Sources say the renovation at their L.A. manse has given Holmes and daughter Suri an excuse to visit the couple’s Telluride villa. Cruise, who has to stay in town for work, is said to be decamped to his luxe quarters at the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Centre.

So the more reliable parties are saying everything is fine and dandy in TomKat land. I had my hopes up, but really, thinking wifebot Katie Holmes would grow a pair and leave Tom Cruise is probably too much to hope for.

    I partially believe it, maybe her need to break away might not necessarily be because of Tom but it surely would be because of all this Scientology stuff. I can imagine for anyone who has been thrown into such an intense ‘religion’ such Scientology, it can be intimidating and overwhelming.

  2. Syko says:

    I think this is just wishful thinking on the part of almost everyone.

  3. KateNonymous says:

    I agree–it seems like wishful thinking, not a real development.

  4. Leni says:

    I agree with CB and Syko. This is the Star after all, and from all we have read Katie likes being led, and he clearly loves to lead so I do not see this ending. She may not have provided the next L. Ron Hubbard, but there is time. No, she is there to stay.

  5. Megan says:

    I won’t believe it until they announce their divorce. Not much happening in Hollywood = invented break-up stories.

  6. KNKN says:

    I must be the only person on earth to not want Katie to be miserable. I think Tom is nuts, but I hope she’s happy with her nutball.

  7. Syko says:

    KNKN, I don’t think anyone here wants Katie miserable. If we’re secretly hoping for her marriage to the Scientonazi to break up, it’s because we wish her well, and wish for her to escape the prison in which she’s caught. We don’t dislike her.

  8. Sasha says:

    Forget trial, she needs the full-court press, if you know what I mean.

  9. anni says:

    even IF it was true, which i doubt, tom will do everything to keep suri. he has a lot of power and will get her, if they ever seperate. i think that´s one of the reasons katie won´t leave him. she fears that he will take her daughter away.

  10. Daisy says:

    where is she? no see in long time

  11. Bodhi says:

    I dislike her. But thats neither here nor there.

    I’d LOVE for her to take Suri & get the hell away from TinyTom, but I just don’t see it happening. Damn it.

  12. Enonymous says:

    I think Katie can take Tom in one on one if she had too, she is taller then Tom and maybe even stronger so she could totally kick TinyTom’s ass. I for one would so like to see

  13. didi says:

    nope, not gonna happen. Katie’s stuck like glue to Tom, unfortunately. She will lose her child to Scientology otherwise. He has her right where he wants her, under his thumb. No free will, no escape.

  14. Anonymous Gurl says:

    Well we’ve known since last summer that he is basically starving her and punishing her in other sick ways under the mantle of Scientology…

    so this news doesn’t surprise me. i’d have been out a long time ago, with or without my money.

  15. Scientology is destroying their relationship.

    Katie is a beautiful girl and never should have got involved. What sort of man has to audition his wife?

    The same type of guy who’d make her do a personality test with an e-meter. Like the one an MP’s daughter from Norway did right before she killed herself.

    How much money has Tom poured into Scientology when he could be donating to Africa like Angelina and Brad do.


    Oh right. That would be a cult.

    Get out now Katie, get out why you still can.

  16. Herman B says:

    dude. i cannot believe that you would let katie go. if she were mine’s, she’d be my sex slave and so much more.

  17. keeta says:

    As if this is true. As much as I want it to be I know it’s not. It will take much longer for Katie Holmes to get free of Tom Cruise and by then she’ll have lost her daughter.

  18. Trashaddict says:

    Right on, anon69. Run, Katie, run!!
    Do not pass go, do not collect 2 million shopping dollars.
    Maybe Katie has seen all the blogs and is beginning to wake up. Maybe if she sees the Star cover, she’ll pick up on the message that everybody thinks she should get the hell out.
