Report: Katie Holmes Has Been Planning Her Split From Tom Cruise For Weeks
During a July 3 trip to an ice cream shop, Katie Holmes was all smiles while enjoying a frozen treat with daughter Suri. Considering she only filed for divorce from Tom Cruise on June 29, one might think she’d retreat somewhere secluded for privacy or reflection or mediation or something. Instead, she’s out and about in New York City, laughing with friends. Despite her lighthearted appearance, however, Radar Online reports that Katie also filed for an emergency custody hearing on the same day.
If things seem to be moving quickly, perhaps it's because the split wasn’t a big surprise to Katie —unlike Tom, who had “no idea [it] was coming.” According to what a source tells PEOPLE, “Her inner circle has been planning this and switching out cell phones since she was in China [in mid-June].” Even Katie’s closest friends were unable to reach her once she got a new phone, says the source. The apartment Katie and Suri moved into on June 28 has also been on hand for several weeks. “[Tom] knew that she moved there, but [he thought it was] for different reasons,” the insider claims.
In the four days since the divorce announcement, Katie has already ditched her ring and taped an appearance on Project Runway All Stars (during which she was “engaged” and “articulate”).
Either Katie’s definitely moving on from her marriage or she deserves an Oscar!
