(LOS ANGELES) — Katie Holmes’ plan to divorce Tom Cruise was a top-secret affair.
The Los Angeles Times reports that prior to filing for divorce, Holmes used a disposable cellphone given to her by a friend that she used to contact lawyers without her husband’s knowledge.
The actress and Cruise announced earlier this week that they have reached a divorce settlement.
Holmes is probably handling the divorce OK.
In an interview with Elle magazine excerpted Tuesday on Us Weekly’s website, she says, “If something’s not okay, then I make it known. I will deal with things…the way my mom taught us girls how to be. She stressed listen, learn, always be strong and be true to yourself.”
