Cruise and Packer Bond, Holmes Shops at Target

According to the Herald Sun, Tom Cruise left Melbourne on Tuesday with good friend James Packer for a few days at sea on one of Packer’s yachts. Obviously, this is just hearsay.

The yacht is called the Arctic P and sails across the Pacific for some recreational fun. Those of you who follow Tom Cruise news know that he and Packer have been very good friends for sometime. Tom introduced Packer to the Church of Scientology and Tom was at his side when his father passed away.

From the sound of it, they haven’t been able to spend much time together because of their busy work and family lives.

Reportedly, while Tom was away, Katie and Suri did some shopping at Target. Accompanied by two security guards they spent about $800 on clothes, toys and housewares to make their stay at the Crown feel more like home.

Holmes and Suri, accompanied by two security guards, browsed the store before buying among other things a children’s bike, a Dora the Explorer piano, a Barbie doll, some flannelette sheets for a child’s bed, several floor mats with heart and flower designs, some board games, several children’s DVDs and an AFL football.

I could easily spend $800 at Target. Love that store!! I hope that Melbourne will feel like home for the Cruises.

      Hi Julie,

      I think you made a mistake in your post. Packer didn’t introduce Tom to Scientology. His first wife, Mimi Rogers did. She was raised in Scientology but has since left. Its actually the other way around. Tom introduced Packer to Scientology. If you do some quick research, you’ll see I’m correct.

      Just wanted to let you know. I’m sure you don’t want misinformation on the site. :)

      Here’s a quote from the actual Herald Sun article showing that Tom introduced James Packer to Scientology, not the other way around.

      “Tom mentored the then media scion through the One.Tel crisis, introduced him to his Church of Scientology at his lowest point, and was at Packer’s side following the death of his father, Kerry.”

      I stand corrected Charlotte Rose. I read it wrong.

      No problem, Julie. We all misread things occasionally. I had a similar situation happen with another article not long ago and I appreciated when someone corrected me!

      Take care!
