Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman Split: A Must Read for Katie Holmes

Apr 3, 2006

It appears we will all learn soon the real reason behind the split of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. This sounds like a must read for the fabulous Katie Holmes as she awaits the birth of her first child.

The Real Reason - Will We Ever Know?

The Real Reason - Will We Ever Know?

Lenny Ann Low writes that this week the celebrity magazines dangle a carrot so golden, so mouth-wateringly mesmeric it's all that we can do to open the glossy pages.

Oh my - what could it be?


The Sydney Morning Herald dishes:

It all starts with the cover of Woman's Day and the headline "FBI Tapes Reveal Why Tom and Nicole Split". Inside, below a blurry photo of said ex-couple looking fed up and daggily coiffured, is news of a tape "that reveals why Nic and Tom split". Scandalous details are surely to follow.

It seems an American private investigator, Anthony Pellicano, has taped Kidman and Cruise having "very private and very intimate" phone conversations, possibly discussing "the reasons for their divorce". Rousing stuff.

Then, while we're still waiting to hear what made the pair split, WD delivers one almighty waffle about Kidman being "terrified", "distraught", "upset", "panicking", "distressed", "bracing herself", "reliving her nightmare" and "concerned" about the tapes. Must be really bad.


Indeed - it must be really bad.

But alas - we may have to wait for the move as the report apparently divulges little, leaving only the usual questions. But there has to be something in those tapes - right?

One nugget that is in the article, Low writes that WD kicks us in our desperate guts with reports the tapes are so embarrassing, Kidman and Cruise "could retreat out of the Hollywood spotlight completely."

That doesn't seem to be working so far.
