Is Katie Holmes Making Nicole Kidman Look Like A Bad Mother?

Is Katie Holmes Making Nicole Kidman Look Like A Bad Mother? 0703

The comparisons were inevitable so is Katie Holmes’ decision to keep Suri Cruise out of Tom Cruise and Scientology’s clutches making Nicole Kidman look like an uncaring mother or was she just a victim of Tom’s overwhelming power?

You knew it was going to get back to Nicole somehow because she hasn’t talked about Katie and Tom’s divorce. I can understand why she wouldn’t but I can’t understand why she hasn’t be hounded by the press yet. Obviously it’s not in Nicole’s nature to talk. She’s barely said a word about her ten-year marriage to Cruise since their divorce eleven years ago. But that divorce was weird and got weirder as time went on. People whisper that Tom had something on Nicole which is why she was able to go free with joint custody but pretty much left the kids behind to be raised 100% by Tom and his Scientology minions. Both Tom and Nicole’s kids are true Scientologists in every sense of the word.

So now the comparisons will come. Was Nicole just weak or did she not guard her audits as well as Katie did? Did she cheat on Tom and have a miscarriage like people speculated? Could Tom have ruined her career with that information? Because remember, Nicole scored an Oscar a couple years after the divorce. Were her children and her silence the price she paid to be considered one of the top actresses in Hollywood?

Does Katie have that to lose? Most would say no. Katie hasn’t wowed with her acting of late. So did Kidman choose her career over her children? We’ll probably never know but what’s interesting is that Rupert Murdoch is speaking out. The Australian mogul is VERY tight with Nicole, like she’s the godmother of his grandchild tight, and he took to twitter to go after Scientology. He tweeted, “Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hiearchy” and “Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.”

Why would Murdoch speak out? He’s no stranger to controversy, though he’s usually the one creating it, but could his tweets in some way be defending his friend when she won’t defend herself? Because what Rupert is really saying here is that Scientology is evil; Tom Cruise is Scientology, therefore, Tom Cruise is evil. So Nicole was living with an evil man and he did evil things. Don’t blame her for the way everything went down.

Do you buy this reasoning? I think Nicole does look like a sh-t mother for what she did. But did she have a choice? Lainey Gossip makes a good point in that Tom was at the top of the game when he divorced Nicole. The couch jumping and maniacal laughter hadn’t kicked in yet. He could basically do whatever he wanted and no one prodded into his private life too much. Times are different not. Katie has leverage from all the crazy and Tom might not have as much dirt on her so she’s willing to go to bat. Can you blame Nicole for not trying as hard to keep her children with her?

    Any mother should die trying.   Truly believe that Nicole Kidman should have fought for her children.  Adoption or not, she was the mother of those children, unless…..Tom adopted them (COS stuff) and she only went along with it to keep up the facade!  

    • SerenaK

      Have you ever considered there might have been a condition attached to the adoption papers that those two kids MUST remained Scientologists?   Hmm… “a mother should die trying”?  Then she’s absolutely of no use to the child because then he/she will be an orphan.

    Um I don’t know. It seems like the kids were also old enough when they divorced that they wanted to live with Tom. My parents are divorced and a lot of stuff goes down that no one knows about, or will know about. It turns nasty, whenever there are kids. So I wouldn’t judge Nicole too harshly. She’s probably not saying anything about it because for her to speak up would be in really poor form.

    I have always wondered what went down with those two and the fact that she appears to have given up her kids to Tom and the cult does not reflect well on her.  Obviously Katie is determined not to let go of Suri the same way, good for her.

      Nicole never gave up on her kids, but you have no idea what she was dealing with, a controlling man can do more than you know. Ever wondered why Tom allowed his two kids to call Katie “Mom?” Because he never respected Nicole’s role in those kids life, and he didn’t, and it appears the children don’t. They love Scientology more than they love Nicole, when it was Nicole who is mostly responsible for adopting them and helping them to have a better life. Their life is better because of Nicole and they don’t seem to appreciate it.

    No it does NOT!!!!…. Remember there is one BIG difference here!…. Katie blind sided TC by 1 filing in NY… and 2 being the one that filed!… therefore insuring her chances of winning sole custody are higher in NY!… TC blind sided Nicole by 1 filing in Cali…and 2 being the one that filed assuring that he would most likely at least get shared custody!!… Cruise himself said Nicole was a great hands on mother!…. She is better of away from him though!

    Nicole is a suppressive person for the Church of Scientology. Her children have been disconnected from her. Usual Scientology stuff. Tony Ortega has plenty of reports that claim why Nicole doesn’t see her children. They’ve been raised as scientologists, this is the reason. Get informed and stop blaming her. She has no fault. If you read more about the disconnection policy you’ll be terrified. Scientology did horrible things and has a lot victims, Nicole is one of these. Nicole in 2001 had the law of California against her “divorce without fault” and joint custody of children. This is the reason why Katie failed for divorce in NY not in LA. Katie is doing exactly what Tom did to Nicole: she blindsided him like he did with Nicole. Good move. He’s having a taste of his medicine. Katie’s lawyers learned Nicole’s lesson very well, she doesn’t want to be screwed. Do you still have the courage to attack Nicole and call her a bad mother?

      no i was in an abusive marriage for 18 years you do what you have to do. i stayed with the ass—- but i started to drink to deal with it. im sorry i did that having been sober for 10 years. not out of control fall down etc but, when you are married to a rich nut case. the law listens to the money side. my x tried to get me kicked out of the house and take my child away, that i would not stand for, my x is a somewhat decent father , abusive towards me so i stayed thinking I could take the heat i was NOT going to leave my son, i told my lawyer i would take my child and leave the country if the judge went with my ex and i would have. my x blindsided me and filed to get sole custody of my son when he was 8. then we put the div on hold till my son went to college. he is a millionaire that hid all his money, i didnt get anything but my son is ging to college, something i never got to do AND I AM FREE free free. money sint EVERYTHING but Jesus Christ is!

      You don’t stand by and allow someone to prevent you from seeing your kids, period. Ms. Kidman could have gone to the courts and most likely would have got the courts to issue an order demanding that Tom Cruise allow her visitation. The publicity would have been so bad against Tom and Scientology that they probably woukd have backed down and worked something out.

      Ms. Kidman gets no sympathy from me and many others. Bottom line is she didn’t fight for her own kids, and that is disgusting.

    I would say that Nicole is not into the church as much as the author might think. Murdock pretty much dissed the church in 15 words or less. Nicole seems like a good mother. What ever happened with Nicole and Tom’s kids could be that the church has a lot of power. I have never seen her drugged or drunk, or hear of her being mean to her children she has now. 

    I think Tom does great movies, but his ego is way too big to fit through my front door. I think she should have full custody. Nicole is a great actress. Katie maybe not a Meryle Streep, but she could be around for a long time. And if she does not go crazy with the plastic surgery.

    Katie could do a lot of Lifetime movies and play the rich wife very well, she has that classic look. She reminds me of Jackie O a lot.

    What ever the reason for the divorce I don’t care. I just hope that she is able to keep her child with her unlike Nicole.

  • Debbeko

    Thanks to what Nicole was hit with by Tom, Katie has that warning in advance and can better plan her split out better to keep her child. Nicole did not have this warning, she did not know Tom would be controlling. It is obvious Tom was controlling with the kids, if no one knows how this is then please just do not judge Nicole, it truly is hard when you are dealing with someone who has the control to make everything turn out his own way. The only reason Katie will do better is from seeing what Nicole went through and being able to plan better, like she did, and going to New York to file.

    Not at all. Nicole Kidman didn’t have a chance on trying to claim her two children with Cruise as he blind-sighted her with a divorce. Cruise is obviously a powerhouse and is used to getting things done his way but he didn’t count on Katie Holmes going to her father and saying “I gotta get out of this or I am going to lose my child  to Scientology too.”
