Well, it finally looks like the divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is set to go ahead and provide tabloid newspapers with an endless amount of rumours and speculation.
Some people say they are surprised while others say that they could see this happening all along and then there or some others who seem to think the whole thing is nothing more than publicity stunt for Tom Cruise’s new movie, Rock of Ages.
One thing for certain is that the Hollywood couple have had their fair share of rumours which have surrounded their lives and their marriage so here we look at 5 of the Weirdest Rumours about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had a marriage contract
Since Katie Holmes has officially made her plans for divorce public this rumour has once again began to circulate. The rumour goes that Tom and Katie had a complex marriage contract that was for the sole purpose of positive publicity for Tom. Many people believe that if the marriage contract exists it is to hide the fact that Tom Cruise is gay, another rumour which has circulated for many years.
According to various sources if the rumours about a marriage contract are true it is designed to keep Katie in the marriage for at least 10 years at which point she would be granted a huge amount of extra money especially if she were to have a second child with Tom.
It is easy to see why this rumour is suddenly finding its feet and gaining traction once again.
Tom Cruise made Katie Holmes audition to be his wife
This rumour has been circulating since 2005 when it was first suggested that Tom Cruise had several well-known actresses audition for the part of his wife. It was reported that not only did Tom have Katie audition for the role but he also had Scarlett Johansson and Keri Russell audition as well. It was said that when Keri Russell auditioned a role in the Mission Impossible movies she also auditioned to be Tom’s real life girlfriend and wife.
Katie Holmes is under mind control of Tom Cruise
There is very little in the way of positive press when it comes to the Church of Scientology and this also means there are plenty of rumours which circulate regarding the mysterious cult religion and its many celebrity followers.
There has been a huge amount of speculation and concern over the years that Katie Holmes is actually under some form of mind control as a result of Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology brainwashing her. These rumours have been considered so serious that Tom’s close show business friends Leah Remini and Jada Pinkett Smith have actually spoke about (and denied) these rumours in a cover story in People magazine.
Suri Cruise is not the biological child of Tom and Katie
When Katie Holmes was pregnant with Suri back in 2006 there were plenty of rumours flying around that she was actually faking the pregnancy. This was mainly put down to various photos which seemed to show her baby bump vary in size from day to day. Such photos served as endless fuel for such rumours.
It has even been suggested that the founder of the Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, was actually the baby’s father and had frozen and donated his sperm for the baby Suri.
In the end Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes decided to prove that Suri really did exist by posing with her on the front cover of Vanity Fair magazine.
Katie Holmes cannot find work
Back as far as 2007 there was plenty of gossip that Katie was unable to find a job due to her relationship with Tom Cruise. It is believed that the majority of studios did not wish to hire her because she had become too much of a tabloid fixture. It was also rumoured that she even had to leave the movie, “The Dark Knight” as a result of her engagement and involvement with Tom Cruise.
