Katie Holmes: Tabloids Don’t Print The Truth
Katie Holmes is telling the world what Gossip Cop shares every day: Tabloids don’t print the truth.
The actress covers the April 2017 issue of Town & Country, and candidly discusses raising her daughter, Suri Cruise, and balancing motherhood with her career. As everyone knows, being part of Hollywood comes with media scrutiny. And to say Holmes has been the subject of a few tabloid cover stories over the years would be a massive understatement.
But she doesn’t take those gossip magazines seriously. And neither should anyone else. “In today’s world a lot of celebrities probably shield their children from the tabloids. In my household we know what they print isn’t true, so we don’t pay attention,” she says. “There are more important things… If people know who you are, they might write about you, and you can’t control that.”
Gossip Cop has corrected dozens of stories about Holmes since we launched in 2009. In recent years, the rumor mill has fixated on the former “Dawson’s Creek” star’s divorce from Tom Cruise and her supposed relationship with Jamie Foxx. Last month, OK! manufactured a cover story that claimed Holmes and Foxx revealed “how we fell in love.” Of course, neither star actually spoke to the tabloid.
Also in February, OK! sister publication the National Enquirer published a story alleging Holmes and Foxx had “split over Scientology.” Reps exclusively told Gossip Cop the tale was both “crazy” and a “complete fabrication.” And so now we stress what Holmes herself told Town & Country about the tabloids: “What they print isn’t true.”
