Did Tom Cruise Beg Katie Holmes to Delay Divorce Filing?

On May 23, 2005, Tom Cruise couldn’t contain his excitement over his relationship with actress Katie Holmes. (Harpo)

-Well, this is oddly fitting. I started at Dose in 2005, shortly after Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah‘s couch in an unhinged declaration of love for Katie Holmes. And now, the day that I’m leaving, the pair announce their split. Looks like the divorce is Katie’s call; Tom’s rep just released a statement saying he’s “deeply saddened.” She’s already filed for primary custody(!), and reportedly refused his pleas to wait six months before announcing the split. There’s no word what happened (just a few weeks ago he was giving mushy interviews about her during the Rock of Love promo tour, and she was spotted wearing her wedding ring just two days ago), but expect this to dominate covers for the rest of the summer.

-Now that she’s split from her longterm girlfriend, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are 100% dating, claims Us Weekly. I’m still not sure if I’m totally buying it. Of course, I thought the ‘he bought her a horse’ story was pure poop and it turned out to be true, so what do I know?
