Tom Cruise may have had a good reason for his recent mea culpa, when he apologized to Brooke Shields last week for criticizing her use of drugs to treat postpartum depression. We hear the actor told Shields that his baby’s mama, Katie Holmes, was herself suffering from the same type of depression after the birth of their daughter, Suri.
Although Holmes’s agent never returned our calls, Cruise’s publicist, Arnold Robinson insists Holmes is not suffering from postpartum depression. “She is in perfect health,” he tells Radar in an e-mail message. Last week, Robinson told the Associated Press that Cruise “has not changed his position about antidepressants, which, as evidenced by the black-label warnings issued by the FDA on these types of drugs, are unhealthy.”
