The world first reacted with shock and disbelief upon the news of Tom and Katie’s divorce! According to a new report, Katie’s parents have reacted to the news as well! Find out all the details!
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after 5 years together! And while Katie’s parents, Martin and Kathleen Holmes, are reportedly sad to see their daughter go through a split, they are happy to have the “old Katie” back!
According to Radar Online, a source close to Katie’s family said, “Obviously, Martin and Kathleen are sad that Katie is having to go through all this emotional turmoil and that she is going to be a single parent, but it’s not like she is going to have to go it alone and she certainly won’t have any financial hardship to worry about.”
Allegedly, Martin and Kathleen were never big fans of Tom — from the very beginning! The source continues, “Both Martin and Kathleen had very strong reservations about Katie marrying Tom, but she was an adult and they obviously couldn’t stop her from following her heart. It’s been tough for them over the past five years to watch Katie be controlled by Tom and they really felt that they had lost their daughter to some extent.”
On a more positive note, “They feel like they’re getting the old Katie back again, the strong, independent willful Katie that had all but disappeared since marrying Tom.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will we see a different Katie, 33, outside of her life with Tom, 49?
