Cruise, Holmes argue over Suri birthday plans
By Simon Reynolds
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are reportedly in dispute over how to celebrate daughter Suri's second birthday, according to the National Enquirer.
Cruise is allegedly planning to spend $500,000 on a lavish birthday party but Holmes believes it may be too extravagant.
"Tom is out to make Suris second birthday a spectacle like no other child has ever had," a source is quoted as saying.
The insider added: "Katie believes wholeheartedly it would set a bad example. She doesnt want her daughter to be a spoiled Beverly Hills rich kid who expects the biggest and the best for the rest of her life... Shes all for a nice party, but nothing ostentatious."
US reports claim Cruise wants to bring in an international cuisine, with a $60,000 cake, and acrobats from Cirque de Soleil costing $100,000.
