Holmes Slams Depression Stories

Subscribe to Tom Cruise alerts

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has lashed out at reports his fiancee Katie Holmes is suffering from post-natal depression following the birth of their daughter SURI last month (18APR06). Several US and UK publications claimed this week (begs22MAY06) the Batman BEGINS beauty, 27, was "constantly in tears" since becoming a mother. However, Cruise's publicist says, "Those reports are not true. Ms Holmes is doing wonderfully." Scientologist Cruise's stance on treatment for post-natal depression is well known, after he publicly criticised actress Brooke Shields last year (05) for using anti-depressants to treat her baby blues after giving birth to her daughter ROWAN in 2003. Cruise insists post-partum depression sufferers can be cured without medication, saying, "You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things." Shields fired back, "I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mr Cruise has never suffered from post-partum depression. Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women decide what treatment is best."
