Tom Cruise has not taken his daughter Suri away from Katie Holmes, despite a purposefully deceptive cover from In Touch. The tabloid screams on its cover that it’s “Katie’s nightmare,” and that “he blindsided Katie,” but none of that is true. Suri remains in Holmes’ custody and that’s not going to change.

Of course, it’s all really a classic bait-and-switch from the tabloid, which clearly has no real news to report. Once one gets past the sensationalized cover, the inside article says Cruise, who’s back in the U.S. after filming abroad for a long time, wants to spend more time with his daughter. The tabloid then adds some over-the-top quotes from so-called insiders, including, “[Holmes will] have to gear up for the fight of her life” and “It could be the dirtiest custody battle ever.”

Most of the remainder of the article is filler about how long it’s been since Cruise was last photographed with Suri. There are also quotes from a divorce attorney “who doesn’t represent Tom or Katie” and a child psychologist “who hasn’t counseled Suri.” What is missing, however, is anything to substantiate the cover’s headline of “Tom Takes Suri.”

Of course, In Touch is the same magazine Gossip Cop busted when it ran a cover claiming Suri wanted to “live with daddy” and that Cruise was “leaving Scientology” for his daughter. Those cover stories were not true back then, and the latest one alleging Cruise has taken Suri is also 100 percent false.
