New rumors and details continue to emerge during the fallout of Katie Holmes filing for divorce from Tom Cruise last week as sources speak out.
Yesterday Cruise celebrated his 50th birthday by flying from Iceland, where he was filming Oblivion to California and Us Weekly is reporting that this was far from how the actor wanted to celebrate his 50th birthday.
A source for the magazine says that Cruise made a last-ditch effort last week, just before Holmes, 33, filed her divorce papers on Thursday, to get her to join him in Iceland for a birthday bash. “He begged her to come to Iceland for one last try at reconciliation," the source said. “He was confident he could talk her out of it and keep her with him.”
Meanwhile, a source for People claims that Holmes and her inner circle had been planning on filing for divorce since last month, keeping it a secret from Cruise.
“Her inner circle has been planning this and switching out cell phones since she was in China [in mid-June],” the source claims. “When new cell phones arrived, then nobody could reach her. Her old best friends from last week don't have her new number, no email. She's unreachable.”
Cruise also believed that Holmes moved to New York to avoid the constant eye of the paparazzi. Holmes filed for divorce in New York, where she has a better chance of getting full custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
There is also a report from TMZ suggesting that Holmes will get very little from the prenup she signed with Cruise, but she doesn’t care about that. "She's not about the money. She's not that girl. She loves to work,” a source told the site, adding that this is proof that she never married Cruise for his massive fortune.
