It looks like Katie’s parents, however, aren’t so shocked!
According to RadarOnline, a source told the site that they’re sad that their daughter has to go through a divorce, but they’re happy she’s splitting from Tom!
The source revealed:
“Obviously, Martin and Kathleen are sad that Katie is having to go through all this emotional turmoil and that she is going to be a single parent, but it’s not like she is going to have to go it alone and she certainly won’t have any financial hardship to worry about.”
It seems the parents of the bride weren’t completely sold from the beggining of the couples marriage. The source says:
“Both Martin and Kathleen had very strong reservations about Katie marrying Tom, but she was an adult and they obviously couldn’t stop her from following her heart. It’s been tough for them over the past five years to watch Katie be controlled by Tom and they really felt that they had lost their daughter to some extent.”
The source also says her parents are concerned about little Suri Cruise:
“Their real concern right now though is Suri. She is still trying to understand exactly what is going on and she is obviously picking up on her mom’s emotions at this time and playing up to a degree.”
Through thick and thin! That’s what family is for.
It sounds like the actress has a pretty supportive family behind her to help her through this tough time hopefully this split doesn’t get ugly.
