Do you think it’s totally crazy that Tom & Katie feed their little girl’s shoe addiction like that?
We knew Suri Cruise loves shoes, but this is ridiculous! Star magazine is reporting that Suri, 5, has amassed an outrageous $150,000 shoe collection, and mom Katie Holmes does whatever it takes to ger little girl the designer pairs she wants.
“Suri is … a massive fan of Marc Jacobs and she’s had several shoes custom-made, so if they didn’t come with a heel, Katie had them redesigned for Suri,” a source tells the mag. “She commissioned a pair of Louboutins for her a while back!”
The 5-year-old is so obsessed with heels, in fact, that she reportedly “cries if Katie reaches for anything but a little pair of sandals with some sort of heel.”
“Suri’s desire to wear heels, in some way she is trying to be like her
mother,” child psychiatrist Dr. Susan Abbott tells HollyBaby.com. “Most children try to emulate adults.”
And child psychologist Dr. Lawrence Balter agrees, although he believes kids need restrictions when it comes to things like clothes and shoes — even if they are celebrity kids.
“Children often cry if they do not get what they want, but parents need
to explain why certain things might be necessary and others might not
be,” he explains to HollyBaby.com. “It sounds like she is a miniature Imelda Marcos.”
