Katies Holmes Fires Publicist In Favour Of Pre-Tom Cruise PR Company
Katies Holmes Fires Publicist In Favour Of Pre-Tom Cruise PR Company

After announced her break-up from Hollywood actor Tom Cruise over the weekend, Katie Holmes has now fired her publicist and re-appointed her old, pre-Cruise one.

After seven years with the same publicist, Katie fired the highly respected Slate PR earlier today and immediately signed with BWR again. In a statement they said: “Actress Katie Holmes has left her publicist at Slate PR and has signed with BWR Public Relations.”

The statement continued: “Following the announcement of her divorce from Tom Cruise, she is now represented by Leslie Sloane in the New York office and Nanci Ryder in Los Angeles. Katie is set to star alongside Chace Crawford in the upcoming film Responsible Adults which starts filming later this year.”

Katie seems to be keen to make a clean break from Tom, after rumours that the Top Gun actor was controlling and dictated who Katie saw and where she could go. Her choice to go back to her former PR company speaks volumes about her apparent need to cut all ties with Tom.

Tom meanwhile has apparently hired the same divorce lawyer he used for his separation from former wife, actress Nicole Kidman, and by all accounts the custody battle between them over Suri is shaping up to be a very nasty one.                           

Why Is Katie Holmes Divorcing Tom Cruise After Five Years Of Marriage?
Why Is Katie Holmes Divorcing Tom Cruise After Five Years Of Marriage?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have revealed they are divorcing after five years of marriage.

The Hollywood superstar, 49, said he was ‘deeply saddened’ that Katie, 33, had filed for a separation.

Tom revealed that the former Dawson’s Creek actress had initiated the split, bringing a dramatic end to one of Hollywood’s most high-profile romances.

In a move that has come as quite a shock to the rest of the world, Katie is understood to have filed for sole custody of the couple’s daughter Suri, six.

‘This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,’ Katie’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement to People magazine.

‘Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.’

A spokesperson for Tom, who is currently in Iceland filming his new sci-fi movie Oblivion, said: ‘Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.’

The actress filed documents in New York this week citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. She has asked for legal custody, primary residential custody and a ‘suitable amount’ of child support from her husband, TMZ reports.

In addition she has asked for the division of their property, although no mention of their pre-nuptial agreement is mentioned in the documents. The couple are worth a staggering $275 million, much of that owing to Tom’s box office success.

Katie is said to have told her husband of five-and-a-half years that she was filing for divorce, but she didn’t give him a chance to control the spread of the news, as he did with Nicole Kidman. The fact that she issued a solo statement speaks volumes about the end of their union.

The pair have not been seen together in public for almost three months; they were last pictured on April 5 while in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Furthermore, Katie failed to turn up to at any of the worldwide premieres of her husband’s latest film Rock of Ages, despite Tom’s constant protestations of love for his wife.

The final arguments seem to have been over where Cruise was going to spend his 50th birthday on Tuesday. He told her that he was planning to be on the set of his latest film Oblivion in Iceland and that seems to have been the last straw for her.

The gorgeous brunette had frequently been pictured looking drawn and exhausted during her marriage. One Hollywood source said she had been ‘utterly miserable with Tom for months, if not years’.

Indeed, the row over his birthday followed another bust-up over what Katie felt were embarrassingly bad taste pictures of him on the cover of W magazine last month. The photo’s saw him dressed – or rather undressed – as the rock star Stacee Jaxx, the character he plays in Rock of Ages. Two half dressed blondes were wrapped around him, one licking his face.

Katie was apparently ‘speechless’ with disgust and felt the pictures laid both of them open to ridicule.

Katie has chosen to stay with Suri in Tom’s New York apartment while he has travelled the world working. Suri has been her constant and only companion lately, and they are often photographed out together until late at night, and Katie – who gave up all the threads of her old life to become Mrs Tom Cruise – seems to have no other friends at all.

One Hollywood source said: ‘It was an open secret that she was utterly miserable with Tom, and had been for months if not years. They really couldn’t drag out the pretence any longer.’

When Tom was filming Rock of Ages in Miami, Katie came along with Suri and they made a family holiday of it. But since then they have spent no more than a handful of nights under the same roof.

‘Katie spent her time avoiding him, and they rowed terribly,’ one Hollywood source claimed.

Now that Katie has walked away from Tom, maybe Suri will be allowed to go to a regular school, rather than being home schooled, and enjoy a proper childhood instead of being taken out on the town until midnight. And maybe her Mum, Katie, will begin to look happy once again.

Katy Perry Discusses Russell Brands ‘Weird Motives’
Katy Perry Discusses Russell Brands ‘Weird Motives’

Singer Katy Perry has suggested that her ex Russell Brand was threatened by her career and had ‘weird motives’ in her documentary.

Katy split from British comedian Russell in December after just 14 months of marriage, and although Katy thought he was ‘the one’, she admitted that work commitments got in the way.

Speaking in her new documentary film Katy Perry: Part of Me, she explained: “I thought to myself, ‘When I find that person that’s going to be my life partner, I won’t ever have to choose [between the partner and my career]. They won’t be threatened or have weird motives.’ Then I started to realise, that’s not true.”

Katy has now moved on and is dating Florence + the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd, but says she did everything in her power to save her marriage, before finally acknowledging it was over.

She said: “I have that same belief system with everything, from career to my life to my personal life, everything. And I will do everything it takes to not fail. And I did everything it took, but it still failed.”

Katy’s forthcoming 3D movie features footage shot around the time she split from Russell, including scenes where she is crying on a bed, despite Russell asking her to cut out the scenes involving him. Katy has previously revealed she wanted to include the clips to show people they can bounce back from their difficulties.

She said: “I think if you were to see the movie and it was completely avoided, you’d think, ‘Hmm that’s strange, I know something else happened in her life last year.’

“So I wanted to handle it delicately with the most integrity I could and show, ‘Yeah I’m going through the same situation that half of America goes through and somehow I landed on my feet, so you don’t have to lay down and die like you think.’ Just because you’re in the spotlight doesn’t mean you get to dodge the curveballs - they’re actually bigger.”

Russell Brand Talks About Katy Perry, Divorce, & Yoga

Russell Brand thinks his marriage to Katy Perry ‘did work out’, despite the fact that it only lasted for 14 months. 

The British comedian admitted that it’s ‘really good’ that the pair are not together anymore, explaining: ‘When I was married it did work out in a way because I was married for some time and that’s really good and then you’re not married and that’s really good. You just have to have acceptance of things.’

The Rock of Ages star said he feels ‘really good’ despite splitting up with the gorgeous Firework singer in December, and admits he still loves the brunette beauty: ‘She’s a person that I love but now this a new time. We were suited for that amount of time but this is a new time.’

The funnyman joked that he was finding divorce proceedings difficult - because of the paperwork. He laughed: “I suppose the divorce is difficult because of the admin. There’s a lot of admin.”

Since splitting with Katy, the 37-year-old star has been improving his ‘sexual charisma’ by regularly meditating and doing yoga.

He explained: ‘I’m in tune with some really beautiful things. I don’t want to sound like a lunatic but if you meditate and do yoga you become attuned to a different energy that is constant and very, very beautiful. Some people call it God, some people call it karma or the cosmos, but I call it sexual charisma.’

Russell’s latest film role sees him star in the movie adaptation of 1980s musical Rock of Ages alongside Alec Baldwin, and the 30 Rock star reminded him of a ‘big, hairy, powerful, sexy uncle.’

Speaking on UK television show, ‘Lorraine’, he added: ‘Nearly all of my scenes were with Alec Baldwin and he’s lovely. He’s like a big, hairy, powerful, sexy uncle which in the wrong circumstances can be a terrible thing but in my circumstances it was lovely. He’s really friendly and really clever and he gave me wonderful advice.’

Most Shocking Celebrity Splits
Most Shocking Celebrity Splits

Celebrities never fail to shock us with their whirlwind romances, often followed by speedy divorces. But which celebrity splits have shocked us the most in recent years?

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony shocked the world last summer by announcing their divorce. The couple have twin toddlers - Max and Emme - and have both moved on in their love lives. The ex couple continued to work closely together on their TV project, and remain on good terms for the sake of their children.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have become infamous for their failed marriage which lasted just 72 days. The couple are now in a bitter divorce battle. For some the split came as a shock, but for others, not so much, with many claiming Kim was in it purely for the money; a claim she fiercely denies.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore didn’t have the odds in their favor due to the big age gap. However, despite the media attention and gossip, the couple appeared to be very much in love. Their marriage lasted six whole years but, sadly, the couple split after rumours that Ashton had cheated on his wife, on the eve of their anniversary (ouch!), which led Demi to spiral into depression and later, rehab.      

Actress Jennie Garth and her Twilight star hubby, Peter Facinelli, confirmed their split after being married for 11 years. The couple have three daughters of whom they are hoping to keep joint custody. Jennie’s jealousy over Peter’s ‘Twilight' success is said to have broken them up. Peter plays Carlisle Cullen in the hit Vampire movies.

Heidi Klum and Seal probably had the most shocking breakup of recent years. The couple’s split seemed to come out of nowhere, as they appeared to be very much in love. The couple have four children, three of which are biologically Seal’s, but all of whom he has raised. The couple married on May 10, 2005 on a beach in Mexico.   

On November 21, 2009, Heidi officially adopted Seal’s surname and became legally known as Heidi Samuel. Soon after, in December 2009, Seal officially adopted Leni, and her last name was changed to Samuel. During their marriage, Heidi and musician Seal renewed their vows to one another each year on their anniversary in front of family and friends.

On January 22, 2012, the couple announced that they were separating after almost seven years of marriage. She filed for divorce from Seal three months later on April 6, 2012. She also requested that her name be restored to her birth name of Heidi Klum.

Kim Kardashian Speaks About Her ‘Difficult’ & ‘Draining’ Divorce
Kim Kardashian Speaks About Her ‘Difficult’ & ‘Draining’ Divorce

Kim Kardashian is finding her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries “draining.”

The reality TV star split from basketball player Kris Humphries just 72 days after their fairytale - and highly publicised - wedding in October last year, and has told her sister that she is finding officially ending their union “so difficult.”

Speaking to Khloe on their hit TV show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ on Monday 28 May, she said: “My divorce has been really draining, really stressful. I just want to leave this chapter of my life behind me.’

Unable to stop herself taking a jibe at her ex, Kim added: “I think someone just wants to make it so difficult. When one person just wants a divorce and the other one is just p***ed, they try to make it so difficult.”

One of the main reasons for the delay in the couple’s divorce is that Kris reportedly wants Kim to explain what happened to all their wedding gifts. However, sources close to her accuse him of dragging proceedings out for longer than necessary.

Kim - who is now dating rapper Kanye West - was inspired by her sister’s advice to have more fun on the show, so she went wig shopping, buying one blonde and one red wig, then assuming two alter egos; one a Southern Belle and the other a spy.

She said: “Khloe’s talk really inspired me just to have more fun. Wearing wigs is so liberating.”

The 31-year-old’s new personas were not so well received by her family, with her brother, Rob, refusing to be seen in public with her and her manager and mother, Kris Jenner, seeming a little confused.

Kanye West Warns Kris Humphries To Stop Prolonging Kim Kardashian Divorce
Kanye West Warns Kris Humphries To Stop Prolonging Kim Kardashian Divorce

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been dating for around two months but, despite their busy schedules, they are virtually inseparable.

Kanye has now reportedly warned Kim’s ex-husband Kris Humhpries to stop attacking her or he will go after him. The ‘Gold Digger’ star is said to be livid over the way Kris is dragging out the divorce following their 72 day marriage that ended last October, and has threatened the NBA star and warned him not to continue upsetting her.

An insider told Reality Weekly that the 27 year-old NBA star is using the divorce to get his own back on his curvaceous ex, who he believes married him just for her TV show.

“[Kris is] going after her financially, but he’s also using it as a chance to air all her dirty laundry,” the insider revealed.

Kanye is said to be less than impressed at Kris’ tactics and, despite being smaller than the 6ft4 sportsman, is ready to take him on to defend Kim.

The insider continued: “[he] thinks Kris is just a thug hiding behind lawyers. Kanye knows he’s smarter than Kris, and he’s not all that intimidated!”

As for the 31 year-old reality TV star, she is said to be loving being stuck in the middle, and finds it a turn on that her new beau is so fiercely protective. Kim wouldn’t mind seeing Kris get what he deserves for causing her so many problems.

“She is extremely flattered and told a friend she would secretly love to see Kanye and Kris have a face-off,” the insider added.

Kris Humphries to give evidence that Kim Kardashian marriage was ‘far from real’
Kris Humphries to give evidence that Kim Kardashian marriage was ‘far from real’

Kris Humphries’ divorce attorneys will reportedly exhibit evidence that his marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian was “far from real.”

The basketball star’s union with the reality TV beauty lasted just 72 days and Kris believes that his entire relationship with Kim was staged, and will present proof of this at the former couple’s upcoming deposition in June.

“Kris’ lawyers plan on asking Kim when she is being deposed about producers of the reality show telling Kris in an email to ask Jonathan about his sexuality,” a source told Radar Online.

“Kris has written proof that he was instructed to ask Jonathan the very personal question, and they will be presented with this evidence during her deposition. It’s Kris’ contention that this only further provides proof that this relationship was far from real — he was set up by producers to ask the question — then made to look bad — and the entire scenario was staged, it was methodically planned out, just like the rest of their time together it seems.”

“Kris would have never asked Jonathan if he was gay or not, without being told to do so. He especially wouldn’t have asked that question with the cameras rolling because he would never want to embarrass anyone or cause any awkwardness.”

Russell Brand’s emotional plee to Katy Perry - she responds with cryptic tweet
Russell Brand’s emotional plee to Katy Perry - she responds with cryptic tweet

It seems like Russell Brand's dealing with a cold case of you don't know what you've got until it's gone, according to British newspaper The Daily Mail.

The British comic is said to be ‘seething with jealously’ after his ex-wife Katy Perry was pictured at Coachella last month with Robert Ackroyd of Florence and the Machine.

The pics reportedly led him to send her a long email admitting that he ‘gave up’ on their marriage too soon. Russell filed for divorce from Katy in December and cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split. However, now it appears being faced with the green-eyed monster has caused him to think things over… or maybe it’s seeing his wife looking incredible in the new Adidas advert?

Either way, it has been reported that Russell sent the 27-year-old singer an emotional e-mail in which he has asked for a second chance and admitted that ending their 14 month marriage was a ‘mistake’.

A source close to the 36-year-old told Grazia, ‘Word has it Russell was “seething with jealousy” when he saw pictures of her with Rob. He apparently feels he gave up on their relationship too easily.’

The source continued, ‘It’s fair to say that Russell only wishes Katy happiness but perhaps he should have realised just how special his wife was when he was married to her rather than five months later.’

When Russell filed for divorce at the end of last year, it was reported that he did not agree with Katy’s partying lifestyle and he told her to ‘tone it down’. Added to the fact that Katy was on a mammoth tour, it seems their marriage ultimately paid the price.

Yesterday, Katy tweeted, ‘Dear God make me a bird, so I can fly far far far away from here.’

Could this possibly be a sign that she might be thinking things over as well?

Kim Kardashian is ready for a fight as she lawyers up
Kim Kardashian is ready for a fight as she lawyers up

As news broke on Friday that her ex-husband Kris Humphries was pressing for a divorce trial, Kim Kardashian was soon in the company of her lawyer.

The 31-year-old reality TV star was seen at lawyer-to-the-stars Laura Wasser’s residence in Beverly Hills. Make-up free, the reality star appeared as though she had come from the gym in her work-out leggings. Furiously checking her phone, Kim appeared somewhat anxious.

The fact that she also went to Wasser’s residential home means things are quite serious, and by reports a war is ready to kick off between Kim and Kris. Reportedly Kris wants his former wife to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Wasser accused Humphries of attempting to prolong the proceedings to dissolve their marriage for publicity’s sake during a brief hearing on Friday morning. But the NBA player is not intimidated, according to Radar Online, and he is pressing for a divorce trial rather than an out-of-court settlement in order to get the truth out.

‘The only way that this case won’t go to trial is if Kim publicly apologizes to Kris and admits that she only married him for television ratings,’ revealed a source close to Kris. ‘Kris just wants the truth to come out and Kim is just absolutely livid that she isn’t getting her own way. Kris wants Kim to answer questions about their relationship, under oath.’

The source continued, ‘Kris is ready for a fight and he has said that Kim should “bring it on.” Kris won’t be silenced and he isn’t after her money, he doesn’t want one dime from her. It’s just about the truth coming out, something that Kim’s camp seems to be petrified about.’

The 27-year-old Brooklyn Nets player wants to know what happened to one of their wedding presents, a $325k white Ferrari, given to the couple by a wealthy Malaysian businessman, among other things.

‘Kris is ready to be deposed and answer questions under oath. He looks forward to Kim being deposed and he will be there when it happens,’ the source said.

Mena Suvari talks divorce and why her ex’s end up hating her
Mena Suvari talks divorce and why her ex’s end up hating her

Mena Suvari has revealed that her ex-partners always end up hating her.

The 33-year-old actress is currently promoting American Reunion, the latest in the American Pie franchise. It sees a group of former school friends attend a get together, although Mena wouldn’t entertain going to such a party in real life.

When things are over she prefers to leave them that way - which also goes for her love life. She told Look magazine: “I’ve never been to a school reunion and never run into an ex who I’ve fallen back in love with. They all end up hating me. I just keep moving on. I don’t like going back, I don’t think it’s healthy.”

Mena is in the process of getting divorced from Simone Sestito, who she wed in 2010. At the moment she is happily single, although she isn’t ruling anything out: “I’m sure there is [room for romance] but it’s not something I focus on,” she said. “I feel like I’ve got to a place in my life where I’m happy - I’m the main focus and that feels good. If [a new guy] was to happen [he’d] have to complement me, instead of taking away from me. There’s a possibility of that.”

Mena hinted some of her previous relationships haven’t ended well, although she doesn’t regret opening her life to any of the people she’s been involved with. At the moment, Mena says she has no plans to settle down fully.

“I don’t know, [marriage] is so far from my mind,” she said. “I’m still going through a divorce right now. Maybe marriage isn’t in my path, and that’s fine with me.”

Katy Perry embraces single status

Katy Perry's reported new love, Bapitiste Giabiconi, has said they are 'just friends', but that didn't seem to phase the singer as she found herself a new man to keep her company while at Coachella over the weekend.

The 27-year-old was spotted holding hands with a mystery tattooed man while best friend Rihanna performed at the music festival yesterday. She looked happy and carefree as she led the man in question through the crowd during Calvin Harris' set on Sunday. The mystery man wore all black and had an 80s-style Erasure haircut.

The Wide Awake singer had been linked to gorgeous French model Bapitiste Giabiconi after splitting with husband Russell Brand in December. However, the model has adamantly stated that they are not seriously dating. He told Grazia magazine: ‘We’re just friends. But right now, my focus is on my album and my career.’

Being linked to the pop star wouldn’t be the worst career move he could make, but Giabiconi seems to think highly of the now  purple haired beauty, saying: “I think the world of Katy. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s also extremely intelligent and super-talented. I have always a big crush on Katy. She is an amazing girl.She is everything a man would want.”

While Katy appeared to be having the time of her life at the festival, her ex-husband has reportedly moved in with model Nikolett Barabas. The Hungarian beauty recently spoke out about their relationship, saying: “He’s amazing, so funny, he’s beautiful. I like being with him; he’s amazing, so amazing. He’s a good person.”


The British comedian and Katy announced their split after just 14 months of marriage; their divorce will be finalised in June.
