Katie Holmes did not spend $200,000 when she brought her daughter Suri Cruise to Paris for her 13th birthday, despite a false report. Gossip Cop can correct the story. It's not accurate.
Last week, the actress flew Suri and two of her friends to Paris to celebrate the young girl's 13th birthday. According to Woman's Day Australia, Holmes spent an inordinate amount of money on the getaway. The outlet claims the actress splashed out $200,000 on first-class flights, five-star hotels and fancy meals for the group.
"It was every teenage girl's dream come true," a supposed insider tells the magazine. The alleged source goes on to say that Holmes typically tries to teach Suri "not to take things for granted," but she made an exception for her daughter's 13th birthday. "This was a special weekend. And Katie made that clear," adds the suspicious tipster. It was in fact a special weekend for Holmes and her daughter, it just didn't cost $200,000.
The tabloid's story is based on claims from an anonymous and seemingly imaginary "source," but Gossip Cop checked in with Holmes' spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it's untrue. Although the actress certainly treated her daughter to a lavish trip, she didn't spend nearly a quarter of a million dollars on it. Holmes' rep, who's qualified to speak on her behalf, tells us the magazine's price tag is "nuts."
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Woman's Day has come up with a bogus story surrounding one of the actress's trips with her daughter. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Holmes was adopting a brother for Suri. That false report came on the heels of the mother and daughter visiting Syrian refugees in Greece. The actress, however, never adopted any of the children they met there.
It should also be mentioned, Gossip Cop called out the publication last month for wrongly alleging that Holmes was "broke" and "moving back in with her parents." That story wasn't true, and this latest article makes no mention of the actress's supposed financial issues. Instead, the outlet now contends she spent $200,000 over one weekend. In addition to the magazine's reports being bogus, they're also inconsistent.
If it wasn't already clear that Woman's Day makes up stories about the actress, Gossip Cop can also point to a 2018 article claiming Holmes was pregnant with Jamie Foxx's baby. That clearly wasn't the case. This latest article involving Suri's 13th birthday is more fiction.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
