Is Katie Holmes' daughter Suri Cruise sad about her mom's split from Jamie Foxx? That's the phony premise featured in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can set the record straight.
"How Suri's Coping With Losing Her Second Dad," reads a headline in the latest issue of In Touch, which claims the 13-year-old had come to think of the actor as a father figure in the years since she's been estranged from real dad Tom Cruise. An unknown source is quoted as telling the magazine, "When Suri asked about Jamie, her mom told her the truth - that they had broken up."
The anonymous insider adds, "Suri was sad, but she's able to handle it. She's a lot more mature than people think. She trusts her mom." In reality, the unreliable tabloid has absolutely zero insight into how Holmes' daughter feels about her mom's breakup.
For starters, trusted sources have repeatedly assured us that Foxx was never like a "second dad" to the teenage girl. The actor spent a very limited amount of time with Suri while he was dating her mom. Holmes and Foxx had an unconventional romance and lived their own lives when they weren't together.
As for this latest take on the subject, Holmes' spokesperson says on the record that it's completely untrue. The actress's rep assures us In Touch knows nothing about Suri and should "stop using Katie's daughter to sell magazines." Holmes' relationship with Foxx was kept totally separate from her family life.
Unfortunately, this wouldn't be the first time a tabloid has decided to drag Holmes' daughter into a story about the actress's romance with Foxx. Back in 2017, Gossip Cop busted In Touch's sister outlet, the National Enquirer, for falsely claiming Foxx would be legally adopting Suri. That obviously didn't happen.
Last year, Gossip Cop called out Woman's Day for making up a story about Holmes' daughter begging her to dump Foxx. The young girl never made such a request. Shortly after that, NW wrongly reported that Suri was fighting with her mom over Foxx moving in with them. The actor never lived with Holmes or her daughter.
As recently as April, Gossip Cop debunked a phony story claiming Holmes wanted Foxx to replace Cruise as Suri's new father. Nothing about this ongoing saga has ever been true. Suri wasn't involved in her mom's relationship with the actor. Now that Holmes and Foxx have split, the gossip media is just trying to involve Suri in the breakup too.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
