Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced more than two years ago, but their love lives remain very much entwined — wrongly so — in the pages of the tabloids. Gossip Cop has busted dozens of stories about the ex-couple in that time, and now here comes along the National Enquirer with yet another made-up Holmes-Cruise tale.

According to the supermarket tabloid, Holmes “feels hurt and betrayed” after Cruise supposedly started “romancing” and “publicly flirting” with Miranda Kerr while filming the new Mission: Impossible movie, a violation of a purported agreement to “keep their dating lives out of the public eye for at least a few years.” While the Enquirer claims Holmes is “enraged” at Cruise for “violating their promise,” the outlet says Cruise’s alleged actions may be “payback” for Holmes breaking it first, by having a “hush-hush affair” with his pal Jamie Foxx.

Of course, as Gossip Cop corrected multiple times, Holmes and Foxx never dated, secretly or otherwise, despite false claims from the Enquirer and other tabloids. It’s based on that faulty premise that the Enquirer fills outs its new article, going on to claim that this supposed revenge war between Holmes and Cruise has escalated to the actress now going after Kerr’s ex, Orlando Bloom. Did we mention this story was ridiculously convoluted?

The Enquirer alleges that Holmes and Bloom have been meeting up in New York, and even supposedly had a “romantic dinner” at her home in Los Angeles last month. “There were sparks between them, and Katie is interested in sticking it to Tom,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine, adding, “And if a hookup comes out of it, that’s a bonus!”

There will be no bonus. And certainly no points awarded to the Enquirer putting on a new but wrong spin on a tired and long-overwith saga. A rep for Holmes tells Gossip Cop that the tabloid’s latest claims are “all lies.”
