What accusations? Katie Holmes appeared to be hitting back at Leah Remini’s shocking claims that she once left Suri ‘sobbing on a bathroom floor’ when she posted a sweet message about ‘love’ and ‘family’ to Instagram on Nov. 1. What do you think?
Sending a message, are you Katie Holmes? The 36-year-old actress took to Instagram to post a cute message about “love” and “family” after being slammed by actress Leah Remini, 45, for once leaving her then infant daughter, Suri Cruise, 7, to cry alone on a bathroom floor in her shocking new tell-all book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology.

While she has yet to speak out about Leah’s revealing new book, Katie appeared to be hitting back at one of the actress’s claims in particular when she took to Instagram on Nov. 1. Posting a cute photo of some perfectly decorated candy apples — created presumably with her look-a-like daughter— Katie captioned her photo: “#happyhalloween #family #love #candy” followed by over a dozen smiley face emojis. While that alone doesn’t necessarily mean much, the post came just days after it was revealed that Leah slammed Katie and her ex-husband Tom Cruise, 53, in her book, claiming they once left Suri sobbing on a bathroom floor. If we didn’t know any better, we’d say Katie’s cryptic message was her way of letting fans know that she is above all else a kind, caring and attentive mother.
In case you missed it, the New York Daily News recently obtained a copy of Leah’s scathing new book, in which she documents her experience at Tom and Katie’s 2006 wedding. As the story goes, Leah was at a dinner proceeding the couple’s ceremony in Italy when she overheard Suri — who was then just 7-months-old — crying from another room. As no one — Tom and Katie included — seemed to be concerned, Leah investigated only to find three women standing over a crying Suri as she was left lying on the floor of a bathroom. Leah wrote in her book that the women were treating Suri as if she were L. Ron Hubbard (the founder of Scientology) reincarnated, and could not touch her. She was finally able to convince the women to pick up Suri and feed the crying baby, but Leah recounts that it was an extremely uncomfortable situation. No kidding!

To be fair, Leah did go on to praise Katie for eventually getting herself and her daughter out of the Church of Scientology. “I know now [Katie] did what she did, leaving [Scientology] the way that she did, because she had to protect her daughter, which, in a way, connects us now,” Leah explained to Good Morning America on Monday, Nov. 2. Tom has yet to react to Leah’s claims, but considering how damaging some of these accusations are to both Katie and Tom’s reputations, it will be interesting to see what happens once Leah’s book actually hits shelves Nov 3.
