Katie Holmes escorted her daughter Suri and a few friends to a children's museum in NYC this morning, and 33-year-old actress later took the shy 6-year-old to Alice's Tea Cup for lunch. On Tuesday Katie and Suri stepped out to get ice cream, so this whole week seems like business as usual for the ladies.
And based on Katie's carefree smile, you'd never know she was on the verge of what could end up being one of the nastiest splits in Hollywood! Not only was soon-to-be-ex-husband Tom Cruise reportedly "blindsided" by her filing for divorce last week, but with his $250 million and a child custody battle looming on the horizon, this could get quite ugly. It was announced today that Tom will file his own divorce documents, and his attorney took a swipe at Katie when he confirmed the news. “We are letting 'the other side' [Holmes and her legal team], play the media until they wear everyone out," Bert Fields told BBC. "Then we’ll have something to say."
Tom is going to have to pay a hefty amount of child support no matter what, but legal experts say it's not going to be easy for Katie to get sole custody of Suri. Then again, given that Katie has allegedly stated in her divorce papers that she doesn’t want Suri raised as a Scientologist, it might be easier for her to convince a judge that she has her daughter's best interests at heart...
When we asked you earlier this week if you thought Katie's decision to divorce Tom was the best move for Suri, 85% of you said yes, 10% weren't sure and only 4% said no. But will Suri get to keep on having mid-day museum dates with mom? Or will Tom and his legal team fight back for joint custody ... or more?
What do you think will happen with Tom and Katie?
