The Tom Cruise Scientology compound just got a little lighter. It seems Katie Holmes has grown a spine. Since their wedding in 2006, Cruise's mother, sister and her two sons have been living with TomKat, and insiders say Katiebot has grown tired of the commune-like atmosphere.
Tom and Katie recently moved into their $35 million Beverly Hills mansion and left Momma Mary Lee and sister Cass to fend for themselves in the duplex apartment in the Scientology Centre, where the entire Cruise clan stayed while renovations were being done on the home.
The adjustment may be difficult for Tom, 46. His mother, Mary Lee South, and three sisters have been a constant presence in his life since he divorced Nicole in 2001. All are Scientologists, and Mary Lee and sister Cass have lived with him at different points. “He’s very close with his sisters and his mother and he always welcomes his family into his house,” an insider says. Cass has even home schooled Connor and Isabella. “Cass and her sons have been an integral part of Tom’s life, and Cass helps take care of Tom’s children when he is away,” adds the insider.
Now mind you, I'm sure this is no ordinary duplex apartment. The ENTIRE Cruise clan, including little Suri and Tom's other two children, Isabella and Conner, from his marriage to Nicole Kidman, stayed there. And this is, afterall, a
46? It's about damn time to cut those apron strings. Good for you Katiebot! You better watch out though, you may end up being sent for more programming if you assert yourself too much.
