Suri Cruise’s Pain Will Break Every Divorced Parent’s Heart

katie holmes and suriIt may seem like little Suri Cruise has a charmed life, but according to Us Weekly, the tyke is having a very tough time adjusting to parents Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's very public and nasty split.

The newly single mom has been opening up about her their new life and the details will make your heart break for the little girl.


"She said the divorce has been hard on Suri and she's acting out," Holmes' friend told the magazine. Poor thing. This is a reminder for us all that, although she jets to the Hamptons on helicopters and is a fashionista in her own right, Suri is still very much a child just like yours and mine.

Divorce is devastating to a kid -- no matter how good they seem to be handling it. "Katie says no to some things, but gives a little leeway. She knows Tom is going to spoil her," said the pal. This must be an incredibly confusing time for Suri. This is a child who wakes up to throngs of reporters and paparazzi following her every move. To lose the comfort of having both parents together is undoubtedly difficult for her. There are even reports that she hasn't seen dad Tom in over a month, though he calls every day.

The divorce and an abrupt move to NYC haven't been Suri's only major life change. She recently started at Manhattan's elite, $40,000 a year private school Avenues. Being the new kid is never easy, no matter who your parents are. Added the friend, "She wants [her] to fit in and be more of a normal kid." Let's just hope her wish comes true.
