Katie Holmes is making some drastic changes in her life. Her first order of business in her new life was getting rid of her husband, Tom Cruise. Although Tom and Katie are not talking about their marriage and ultimately their divorce, it is pretty much a given that Scientology and their different parenting beliefs are what drove them apart. With that said, the next step in Katie’s new life is getting daughter Suri Cruise as normal as possible.
Suri is normal, but not normal when it comes to the lifestyle of a typical six-year-old. Obviously, she is going to live a little differently considering who her father is, but her life has been different from most celebrity kids. Suri is a diva at the ripe age of six. Her kitten heels, makeup and designer clothes have been the focus of tabloid fodder for years. While it would seem her designer mom would be encouraging the little fashionista, that does not appear to be the case at all.
In fact, a new report indicates Katie is kiboshing Suri’s diva antics. A source claims, “All that inappropriate dress-up and make-up was down to Tom.” That is probably not entirely true and a little unfair, but it is understandable he would spoil his little girl. The source adds, “Katie’s keyword now when it comes to Suri is ‘normal’. Tom loved to spoil Suri and indulge her, but Katie has other ideas.”
Poor Suri will be relegated to the same standards of other Hollywood tots. Gone are the days when children’s designers could use Suri as a clothes horse. “Katie has been returning unsolicited gifts and loans from designers for Suri since she arrived in New York,” reports the insider. Playing dress-up on occasion is normal, but Katie Holmes is tired of her kid being a walking advertisement. “She’s also put the word out in LA to stop any mini-me diva products being sent her way.”
