Does Suri Cruise have a $100,000 treehouse with electricity & shag carpeting?


This story is almost certainly BS, but I kind of love it anyway. According to this week’s In Touch Weekly, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes gave Suri Cruise the gift that keeps on giving: a $100,000 treehouse. According to sources, the “treehouse” isn’t exactly up a tree, but is more like Suri’s little garden cottage on stilts, I think. There is no rope ladder – there is a spiral staircase. There are no garage-sale finds and EZ-Bake Ovens. There is running water, electricity and shag carpeting. Which sounds more like Suri’s $100,000 “pied-à-terre” rather than a “treehouse” (how gauche).

Apparently, this treehouse also comes with security cameras and “a slew of nannies” who cater to the 5-year-old’s needs. It’s starting to sound less and less like a treehouse, right? Well, the idea of this has enchanted me nonetheless. When I was a kid, I never had a treehouse and I always wanted one. I would have settled for a shed in which I could make into my own kid playhouse, decorating it how I wanted. Did anyone else have a childhood interest in designing and decorating small spaces? I used to draw layouts for how I would arrange my treehouse/shed too. Seriously. Like, I would make blueprints. Ah, to be young again!

Anyway, Gossip Cop got a denial from Tom’s rep. I wonder why they even bothered denying it, though. I prefer the idea of the Cruises blowing hundreds of thousands of dollars on treehouses, rather than custom-made Louboutins.

    Would they PLEASE put some shoes on that kid and stop carrying her like she was 2 years old?

  2. gamblea says:

    They look so sketchy. Never give up your dream to build a treehouse.

  3. Ron says:

    So. My tree house had a Limoges tea set, Reed and Barton sterling, and silk damask drapes to match the hand woven rugs.

  4. teehee says:

    Wow look how fast she is growing— she’s gonna be super beautiful when she’s matured– I’m eagerly awaiting it ;) lol

    • What to think says:

      Seriously, not to be mean.

      Do the parents make sure this kid gets a bath each day? Even Katie’s hair appears not to have been washed or brushed.

      The clothing mom is wearing is slovenly, and yet a pair of star treck boots which she must think is classing up her outfit most wouldn’t even go to the supermarket it.

      Finally, I have NEVER seen a photo of this kid where she is smiling. Never. The kid is miserable and learning to be extremely manipulative.

      Gawd…imagine being Suri’s nanny! Holy crap. Put up with abuse from the brat and wacked out parents who “think” a 5 year old belongs in heels.

      As if Suri gets on the computer and orders these ugly outfits and shoes. Who the heck is shopping for her (and mom)?

      Just weird. Beginning to think Tom might be the most normal of the 3, but then none of them seem even remotely normal.

      They all need a good shower, and one needs to be told “NO!”. Pretty sure we know which one that is!

      P.S. Suri’s not a baby (waa waa), she’s a 5 year old brat who needs bathing. Beautiful? Maybe in the eyes of the beholder. ahh hem… ewww…

  5. mln76 says:

    ITA with teehee Suri is really a gorgeous little girl…I always wanted a treehouse..I hope she’s got one.

    • What to think says:

      “WHO” would say this kid is beautiful? If she were on a playground with 20 other kids, no one would pick her out as being “beautiful.” Average maybe. Future nose sculpting plans for sure.

      Give me a break, Cruise paid bloggers.

      She’s not a fashionista either. The kid is the worst dressed kid I can think of, sort of visiting a homeless shelter where she’d fit in beautifully. Dirty, disheveled and with that continual unhappy face she’d fit in perfectly.

  6. Elizabeth says:

    Sounds like an apartment I had in Toronto. Under 400 sq ft but it had everything. Except the nannies! Damn, I knew something was missing.

  7. Kimbob says:

    Yes…of course she has a swanky tree house pad….all built by the blood, sweat and tears of Scientology minions.

  8. Angelina says:

    She is going to grow up one spoilt young woman

    No fault of hers though

  9. bluhare says:

    Of course she does. And they really cheaped out if they only spent $100K. They spent $150K on her shoes for godsakes!

  10. Sloane Wyatt says:

    This post is so cute *grins*!

    When I was five, I had a little yellow shed in the back yard & I loved it! It had a mini table with it’s own chairs too. Many a summer’s day, the neighbor kids and their puppies and kittens would play dress up and play house in it. Too bad I got caught playing ‘doctor’ in it *blushing*.

  11. the original bellaluna says:

    You know, I would much rather read about the amount of money the Sci-co & KatieBot have donated to any one of the communities effected by the flood/tornadoes/storms in the south & mid-west; or the Red Cross; or the victims of Japan’s horrible triple-whammy disaster.

    I don’t care if this kid pees pure molten gold. If I had their kind of money, I would give my child what I could WITHIN REASON. But you can bet your arse I’d give a whole lot more to those without.

  12. Bill Hicks is God says:

    If Suri Cruise is responsible for bringing Shag carpeting back into vogue, I have only one thing to say: Damien!

  13. dorothy says:

    They need to let the kid walk. Her leg muscles are going to atrophy from lack of use.

  14. 4Real says:

    She so DAYAM CUTE! I’m sorry she reminds me of my lil girl. Just FEARLESS, adorable and makes no appology about it.

  15. You don't say says:

    Yes Suri is spoiled, though she is not spoiling herself. But I really don’t like when children are featured in stories, no one’s children, not even when her parent’s seem to be pushing her out there.

  16. Rita says:

    My brothers had a treehouse but I wasn’t allowed so I threw dog poop in it. To this day they think the birds carried it up there…..(shhhhh don’t say anything).

  17. ladybert62 says:

    What is that on Katie feet?

  18. Kim says:

    Im sure this story is true. Some of my neighbors have those $30-50k playsets in their yard & they have no where near the funds the Cruises do.

  19. the original bellaluna says:

    @ Rita – Oh, you sly devil.

    I had a playhouse, including a little kitchenette with a sink. No running water, of course, but I filled the sink with water so I could wash the dishes. Mom was a single mother at the time, and it didn’t cost anywhere near $100K, but it was mine and I loved it.

  20. mln76 says:

    @Kimbob of course she has a swanky tree house pad….all built by the blood, sweat and tears of Scientology minions

    Never even crossed my mind I can sooooo see Tom doing that (It’s already been proven he uses COS slaves) Poor Suri.
    I take it back I hope she doesn’t have a treehouse, :(

  21. Roma says:

    @Sloane Wyatt: I had a shed too! Except it was up where we camped. For years it was my little play area when I was too young to go out with my brothers and eventually I slept in it as well. My friend and I also built a secret lock box that her dad helped me with that we buried behind the shed so we could leave each other notes.

    Then one of my brothers smashed our box and read our notes.

    We stopped camping soon after. But I loved that shed.

  22. Madisyn says:

    “There is running water, electricity and shag carpeting”.

    Shag carpeting? What, no hardwood floors? Now thats gauche.

    On a more serious note, if the tree house story is true or false, doesn’t matter, its their money but pictures DO NOT LIE. AGAIN, parents covered up like they live in Alaska and Suri has no arm coverings and no shoes. Unbelievable!

    Waving at @ Rita and @ bellaluna

  23. Crittle says:

    My dad built us a treehouse, it had electricity, cable and plumbing. I think he built it because he was tired of us destroying his house

  24. Incredulous says:

    Pfft. My friend Eoin built his 6-year-old daughter a “Princess House”. It looks like a log cabin/shed, has seats, shelves, a rug and mirrored windows so you can’t see in but you can see out. Beside it is an old motorbike covered in ivy that he’s going to build a sidecar for. World’s best (and financially prudent) dad? Probably.

  25. Eve says:

    I have the feeling this kid is a total brat.

  26. Rita says:

    @Bellaluna and Madysin

    No “binge tailgating” in the treehouse. (I seen your latest message. Bet you have two cans connected with a string for secret messages…can you hear me now?)

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    @ Roma – You’re not bitter, you’re smart. (You know what I’m talking about.)

    @ Rita – We promise! *fingers crossed* We’ll be good!

    *waving @ Rita & Madisyn*

  28. fabgrrl says:

    I love treehouses to this day! I have a treehouse calendar in my office. We are planning to build one, a really nice one, when we have a little money saved up. I fully intend to have electricity, and possibly water, going to it. I’ll let the kids play in it too, sometimes :^)

  29. Madisyn says:

    @ Rita

    “No binge tailgating in the treehouse”

    Your too much. . . and I love it!

    We do have two cans but we made it so it has four cans, one for you, @brin, @bellaluna and myself. Can YOU hear me now?

  30. duh says:

    @anoneemouse – I don’t think you need to worry about her, she can walk by herself. I think it’s just convenient for Kate to carry Suri in her arms when she wants to rush through the paparazzi. I would also feel very protective of my child walking into a crowd of strangers who wanted to take her picture. I think that’s the reason why we see so many celebrities carrying their 4 or 5 year olds.

  31. photo jojo says:

    To quote Michael K “What in the hell kind of GD outfit is that?”

  32. spinner says:

    ok Rita…it will be our little secret. But first…you must sign zee papers.

  33. Andrea says:

    Gotta have some where to store all those Lubitons she has.

  34. brin says:

    @Rita, Madisyn & bellaluna….I got my tin can and I can hear all of you!

  35. huh says:

    Totally believable.

    Check these things out. Lofts, hardwood floors, kitchens with running water. Am sure people w/ lot less $$ than Cruise are buying these.

  36. Charlotte says:

    That kid just looks dirty and in need of a scrubbing!

  37. Deb says:

    @ the Original BellaLuna, it seems like any time $cientologists do something charitable, there’s always a catch. They’re like those missionaries that go to countries where people are starving and only give them food so they can convert them. When $cientologists have showed up at disaster areas in the past, it was always clear that their main agenda was to get more Xenu zombies into the fold.

  38. Rita says:


    I ain’t signin’ no papers.

    When I was helping my mom dry the dishes she gave me the suspicious “side eye” when my brother asked why crows would put dog poop in the treehouse.

    I had to help with the dishes ’cause I stuck my fork in my baked potato and let it sit there until it got real hot. Then I pressed it against my brother’s shirtless boob. He screamed but he never sat at the table again without a shirt.

  39. Thea says:

    I think I am offended they put shag carpeting in her tree house. Thats common. Why not silk damask?

  40. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I had a treehouse of my own–oh, the pastries and faux-shepherdessing! It was called Le Petit Trianon, and…wait, what?

    Was it me who had that Playskool Whorehouse? It probably explains my continued aversion towards phonics.

    Wait, no. It was The He-Man Xenu-Haters Turl Club. Imagine my embarassment when I showed up with a drum of jheri curl activator. Turl, Turl, alright! Sheesh, don’t have a Miscavige over it. At least I got a novella out of my experience there– At The Shoe Lifts of Madness, have you read it yet? I hope it fares better than my last attempt, becuase Harry Potter And This Fucking Deluge Of Hype didn’t go over well, at all.

    Anyone else here feeling ‘over it’ in reference a pregnant lady you know? Trust me, babies, you can easily counter Song Of Myself: My Mucous Plug And You, I will send you a special copy of my, ahem, seminal work, Pregnancy Today, The Henry Miller Way. You won’t be anyone’s work but your own after that, but keep quiet becuase the OB-GYNs and Big Vulva don’t want you to this important work of discovery. I had very strange experience at the AfterBirthers rally, and can say with truth that my chances of gaining membership at Augusta are pretty much nil. I guess my milk julip consumption won’t be cradled by rich, Corinthian leather or a manservant with whom I should never make eye contact name Leopold.

  41. spinner says:

    @ Rita…ummmm…I’m thinkin after the hot fork story you are a formidable foe. errr…we can just go for a gentleman’s agreement. *sweating profusely*

  42. Catherine says:

    I want to see pictures.

  43. Sakyiwaa says:

    LMAO! @Jo Mama Besser and Rita’s hot fork story.

  44. Anguishedcorn says:

    I’m just too distracted by Tom’s shoes, which obviously have lifts in the soles.

  45. Susan says:

    Suri always looks nasty (dirty)….Poor thing needs a bath….I bet her bath is like Francis’s bath on Pee Wee’s Big Adventure….

  46. Annie_Grey says:

    The kid is looking more and more like Josh Hartnett.

  47. jaye E says:

    Sometimes Suri looks like a beggar child.

  48. DrM says:

    Can I just say that those are truly the most heinous clothes on Kate…OMG. I am all for comfort at home slobbing around. No worries…but NOT out in public…she looks like a homeless person… Not great on Tom either…YUCK

  49. Jilly Bean says:

    how is katie ever considered a fashionista? she looks like she is in university studying for exams in that get-up…

  50. thesea says:

    Love the little skinned knee.

    Tom actually looks pretty hot.

  51. Falliblehuman says:

    I would have LOVED a treehouse or a playhouse growing up! I do, however, sincerely hope they didn’t pay $100,00 for one.

    On the ageless question of why Suri is so often carried: Hasn’t anyone else noticed the look of harrassment on her face, frequently seen in these pictures? Sometimes she’s visibly cringing and covering her eyes. She clearly doesn’t like the clamor and flashbulbs. I imagine it could feel like an attack. I’d pick her up too, if I was her mom.

  52. Belle Epoch says:

    I bet it’s not going to make Suri any happier, whether she does the dishes OR plays “doctor.” she doesn’t seem to have friends. Do you think they carry her up the staircase?

    Predicting massive blowout with this girl in a few years.

  53. bluhare says:

    Re Suri looking disheveled. Just goes to show that spending a fortune on clothes does not a clothes pony make.

  54. jayem says:

    That poor kid. She always looks like she’s desperately trying to wish everyone into the cornfield…

  55. Eve says:

    @ Jayem:

    That poor kid. She always looks like she’s desperately trying to wish everyone into the cornfield…


  56. chris says:

    The child looks like she’s being kidnapped by homeless people.

  57. KitKat says:

    This is sickening when you think of the starving children even in the USA! Why not give to help some of the ravaged countries and feed others?
    …and carrying that kid!!? She is as tall as her dad is!
