Tom Cruise’s ‘Somber’ B-Day; Katie and Suri Celebrate July 4 in NYC
(NEW YORK) -- After being reportedly "blindsided" by Katie Holmes slapping him with divorce papers last week, Tom Cruise had a "somber" July 3 birthday in Los Angeles with his two adopted teens, Connor and Isabella, according to People magazine.
Meanwhile, in New York City, the New York Daily News got the first official comment from Holmes since she dropped her breakup bombshell.
As she strolled through a Whole Foods in the Chelsea neighborhood on Wednesday, she told the paper, "I'm alright, thank you," as she and her daughter shopped for burgers, buns and a few other items.
It was a different Fourth of July than her former Mission: Impossible star-hubby had in mind.
A source tells People, "The plan was he was going to spend his birthday with Katie and Suri [in New York City], then they were going to fly to California where he is going to finish [filming] Oblivion and spend time there."
Instead, Cruise avoided the paparazzi crush by bypassing the Big Apple, and for now talks with Suri "several" times a day by phone. The source described the star on his birthday as "just very, very sad."
TMZ.com is claiming that Holmes' camp has made it difficult for him to keep in touch with Suri. Sources say he has "absolutely no contact with Katie."
Meanwhile, Holmes' camp is denying a report she wanted an emergency hearing for custody and child support, People reports.
