Katie Holmes Wants Suri Cruise to Be a “Normal Kid,” Says the Divorce Has Been Hard on Her
It’s hard to deny that Suri Cruise, daughter of recent exes Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is living a charmed life, even in spite of being trapped in the middle of her parent’s high-profile divorce. But could it be time for Suri’s celebrity parents to lay off the frequent gifts and private helicopter rides?
Her mother seems to think so, at least.
“She wants [her] to fit in and be more of a normal kid,” an insider told Us Weekly of Katie’s approach to parenting Suri.
And other than a few tantrum-fueled trips to FAO Schwarz, Katie is reportedly doing what she can to make sure Suri doesn’t wind up too spoiled, a difficult task considering the 6-year-old’s parents earn multiple millions every year.
"She said the divorce has been hard on Suri and she's acting out," another friend of the actress said. "Katie says no to some things, but gives a little leeway. She knows Tom is going to spoil her."
