Katie Holmes turned to Tom Cruise’s second wife, Nicole Kidman, via phone calls for divorce advice and emotional support. The Jack and Jill actress reportedly contacted the Australian actress, who was married to Cruise from 1990 through 2001.
The two women have been friends since the TomKat marriage in 2006, but I bet Holmes didn’t think she would be going to Cruise’s ex-wife for divorce advice.
A source told US Weekly magazine, “They’ve spoken over the last few weeks. Nicole has been supportive, saying she’s been through it too and to hang in there.”
Over the weekend, Katie and Tom’s lawyers worked out the details of the couple’s divorce, and both actors mutually agreed that their daughter, Suri, should stay with her mother. They were able to avoid the potential mess that most celebrities go through.
In a joint statement released this week, the couple said, “We want to keep matters affecting our family private, and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs, and support each other’s roles as parents.”
This is Katie’s first divorce and Cruise’s third; apparently, he is having a hard time finding a woman who agrees with his Scientology beliefs.
