The Calm Before The Storm: Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Kept Low Profile Prior To Split

By Radar Staff

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting after more than five years of marriage, and is taking a closer look at the weeks leading to Friday’s shocking announcement.  

Some red flags might have been raised last month when the couple was mysteriously apart for Father’s Day. Suri spent the June 17 holiday with her father in Iceland, where he’s filming the movie, Oblivion. A week later on June 24, Katie took Suri to see a film as Tom was still in Iceland.

In interviews on the promotional trail for Rock Of Ages, Tom downplayed any possible rift he might have had with his wife since November 2006.

He told Playboy in May of Katie: “She is an extraordinary person… Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity. She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her.

“What we have is very special.”

A National Enquirer report in mid-May claimed Katie was jealous after seeing Tom’s sexy shoot for his steamy W magazine shoot with models Abbey Lee Kershaw and Edita Vilkeviciute.

“Katie will be devastated by the erotic and explicit nature of the pictures,” a source told the Enquirer, adding the pics were “certain to spark a shocking blowup between them!”

Holmes’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe told People, “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
