Katie Holmes Tom Cruise Court Suri

(Life and Style)

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are NOT having an “explosive showdown in court” over their daughter Suri Cruise, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the report.

The new cover of Life & Style, which came out Wednesday, announces a “Battle Over Suri, Scientology & Money.” The accompanying story is headlined, “Tom & Katie Face To Face In Court.” And the magazine further states, “A nasty battle over daughter Suri has Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on a collision course.”

Because Cruise has not seen Suri in quite some time, “Katie now wants Tom to pay,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. “She’s fed up. Some friends say they’re headed back to court, where they would have an explosive showdown. And, they say, Katie feels she would triumph.”

The supposed snitch goes on, “It could be a brutal court battle. Katie used to be afraid of Tom and his legal team, but she’s not the same person she was when she split from Tom four years ago. She’s taken control of her life and is a lot stronger. Tom’s in for a real fight!”

As for Cruise’s side, a different “insider” claims to the outlet, “He has a group of pit bull attorneys, who will insist that he’s honored the divorce agreement and pays more than a substantial amount of child support. This isn’t going to be a cakewalk legal battle for Katie, either… Tom is going to make sure the showdown isn’t easy for Katie.”

Except there ISN’T any “showdown” looming. A rep for Holmes exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “There is no truth to it whatsoever.” And let’s not forget that Life & Style is the same publication Cruise infamously sued for $50 million back in 2012, a lawsuit that was later settled out of court.
