Katie Holmes `dead set` on keeping sole custody of Suri
Washington: For the past few days, legal teams for both Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have been working steadily in an attempt to reach a settlement for the divorcing stars, but it seems that she is not about to cave when it comes to their little girl.
“She is dead set on keeping custody of Suri,” Us magazine quoted a Holmes source as saying.
The 33-year-old actress -- whose future projects include the new film Molly (which she wrote) and a Holmes and Yang runway debut at New York Fashion Week this fall -- filed for divorce from the Mission Impossible star on June 28, and asked for sole legal custody of their six-year-old daughter.
“Katie is not going to compromise on certain issues, all regarding Suri,” the source said.
During their nearly six-year marriage, Holmes had apparently become increasingly uncomfortable with the bizarre rules and restrictions of Scientology -- particularly with respect with how to raise and educate her only child with the 50-year-old actor.
“This is about protecting her daughter,” another source explained.
While Holmes has been highly visible since the news broke, stepping out with Suri near their new NYC apartment almost every day, Cruise has been reportedly holed up at his L.A.-area home.
The Rock of Ages star and his team “are in major crisis mode,” a Cruise source admitted.
“He is on the phone with his lawyers 24/7,” the source added.
