Now Seems Like A Good Time To Discuss The Classic ‘Chris Klein Is Suri Cruise’s Biological Father’ Rumors

There’s nothing normal about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ relationship. From the courtship via alleged casting to the high-profile divorce complete with Scientology stalkers, it all sounds like something that a sci-fi writer made-up on a deadline. But just in case, you’re looking to add a few more scintillating rumors to the mix, try this one on for size.

For years, people have suggested that Katie’s ex Chris Klein is Suri Cruise’s biological father. Mostly  because she got pregnant so quickly after “breaking up” with Chris Klein.

A Celebitchy article from 2008 lays out the case right here:

A lot of people speculated that Suri wasn’t born in April at all, and cited photos of Katie’s Holmes growing and shrinking bump to show that there was some funny business going on. One photo in particular that made us scratch our heads had Katie looking like she was smuggling a beach ball under her top. There are theories that Suri isn’t Tom Cruise’s biological baby and that Katie was instead pregnant with her ex Chris Klein’s child when she met Tom just a month after her breakup with Chris. Cruise was rumored to be sterile or at least unable to successfully reproduce, given the fact that he had no biological children with ex wife Nicole Kidman and she suffered some miscarriages during their marriage. The curious way that Suri was kept from the public and the lack of convincing evidence of her birthdate were used as evidence that she could be older than Holmes and Cruise claimed, which made her paternity up to question.

Why would the  Tom Cruise and his friends at Scientology agree to covering up the truth behind this pregnancy?

A pregnancy would not only prove(ish) that Tom Cruise intercoursed Katie Holmes (making him straighter than straight), but also that he’s virile healthy man full of testosterone and footballs and all the the other ingredients that make up a macho man. And that’s exactly the image he needs at the box office.

Not convinced that this could, maybe, possibly be true?

Let’s look at the timeline:

March 2005 – Chris Klein and Katie Holmes break-up

April 29th, 2005 – Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise publicly state that they’re dating.

June 17th, 2005- Tom Cruise proposes to Katie Holmes.

October 5, 2005 – Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise announce that Katie’s pregnant.

April 18th 2006 – Suri Cruise born.

A year after breaking up with her boyfriend of several years, Katie Holmes gives birth to Tom Cruise’s baby?! Definitely possible, but definitely strange. Or maybe, Katie Holmes gets cold feet about her absolutely insane whirlwind of a relationship to a man 17 years her senior and has a short-lived romantic affair with Chris Klein in late summer/early fall of 2005. Just the tips, just to see how it feels.

Or maybe  I’ll go out on a limb here and say that the entire pregnancy timeline got fudged and she really did give birth 9 months after meeting Tom. Sounds crazy, but so is everything else we’ve heard about this relationship thus far.

And it could certainly explain why Katie Holmes thinks she can get full custody of Suri, when Nicole Kidman get practically no custody of her children with Tom. Or it could just be another crazy rumor. But at this point, after hearing what I’ve heard so far, I’m ready to believe just about anything.

    Shall we just breeze over the fact that Suri really resembles Tom? Particularly in the eyes/eyebrows. Rofl.

  • Eileen

    She has a birth certificate that’s been seen around the internet. I mean, it could be a fake, if you’re a Cruise-birther.

    Even if Suri isn’t Tom’s, it really upsets me that the fact that he and Nicole Kidman chose to adopt their children is taken to imply that he couldn’t father natural children. Adoption-shaming much?

    • Jenni Maier

      I purposefully used the word “biological” father to differentiate that Tom’s still Suri’s father in the ways that count. As the person who wrote this article, you can bet your bottom dollar, I’m not an adoption shamer. http://crushable.com/entertainment/tom-cruise-nicole-kidman-bella-connor-adopted-842/

    • Eileen

      I wasn’t actually referring to you there – but rather to the fact that these assumptions have been made, which the Celebitchy article you quoted pointed out.

  • hihi90

    Nicole Kidman suffered like one or two miscarriages while married to him. Unless she had IVF then he is definitely capable of producing swimmers.

  • Ann Folly

    I think you can see more of a Cruise family resemblance if you look at Tom’s brother, William Mapother. Can definitely see Suri’s eyes are just like her father’s side of the family.

    • heather

      Tom Cruise doesn’t have any brothers. William Mapother is his cousin.

  • poppycarew

    If Tom didn’t want to be a father “the natural way” they still could have done IVF. Tom might have swimmers, but perhaps not many of them.

  • Katlyn

    Celebitchy isn’t even a real website. It’s Bossip lite!

  • Tobi

    While I definitely think Suri looks like Katie too, when I look at her, I just see a little-girl-version of what Tom looked like as a kid.

  • talkonacerealbox

    Suri Cruise looks just like Katie and Tom. She’s such a mix of them that I can’t really decide who she looks like more. To say she’s not Tom’s is absurd. He’s an asshat and a weirdo but I seriously doubt there was a conspiracy to cover up an outside pregnancy.

    • Khayer..

      I agree, Suri looks alot more like Katie and she also has a resemblance in TC, mouth and eyes.

  • Amy

    Dear commenters,

    Quit ruining this awesome conspiracy with all of your facts.
    I was just starting to have fun.

  • testing

    I think Suri looks just like Katie, I really don’t see much of Tom in her. Either way she dodged a bullet but not getting the nose that Tom and his brother have

  • clap85

    Suri looks like Katie and Joshua Jackson! look at some of his childhood photos. they’re identical!!!

    • BlueSailor

      You mean Joey and Pacey had a baby?!!?!?!?!?!? Dawson is going to be maaaad!

    • susie

      I agree with you – she does resemble Joshua Jackson even more as she’s gotten older. However, it is still possible Chris Klein is her dad – he had a nose job which changed his looks dramatically (not for the better, either). There is no way TC is the father…period.

    • Khayer..

      Nah, I don’t see any resemblance

  • morsette

    So what, if the relationship was a “sci-fi writer made-up” get your facts together. You are not making any sense.

  • SPR

    Suri is definitely Chris Kline’s child. Look at Chris and Suri’s eyebrows….identical. Shape of eyes…..identical. Blind Freddy could tell you she is the child of Chris and Katie.

  • SPR

    Do you really think Tom would let Katie walk away with Suri, if she were really his biological child??? Get real, he would bring out his big gun legal eagles to fight it, Katie would not stand a chance. Lest we forget what happened to Nicole and their adopted children, Connor and Isabella. She never stood a chance. He pulled out all the stops. Let’s be honest, he is

    • SPR

      Contd …a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood – he would have taken that child away in a heartbeat. That is Katie’s power, she is the only biological parent in that, soon to be, ex-marriage. He cannot risk fighting for Suri. Katie holds all the cards.

  • merietje

    denken jullie om het kind, dat straks ook alle roddels te horen krijgt op school ,kinderen praten ook , ik vind dit niet kunnen, kinderen horen te worden beschermd tegen roddels
    now ill try in engels

    you think to the child, who soon also get to hear all the gossip at school, children talking, I think this can not, children should be protected from gossip stop gossip when their are children concerned

  • lesley

    A friend of mine in the industry says this rumor along with the fact that Katie auditioned to become Tom’s contractual wife has been going on since 2007. Supposedly they also auditioned Jessica Biel for the ‘role’ but she promptly turned down their offer.

  • rerun

    pix of that kid are ‘throw a wig on chris klein & reduce him to toddler age’ dead ringer’ish

  • http://www.FiveBucker.com/ FiveBucker

    It may be easier to make an assessment if they showed childhood pictures of Chris and Tom when they were Suri’s age. Basically they all have dark features… so maybe the mailman could be the dad too.

  • http://twitter.com/surfgrl460 Ashley poulsen

    This kid looks nothing like Chris. Its a dead on for Tom. How would she have a kid 1 year later after the break up?

    • JustJenna

      I see no resemblance to Tom. She looks like a mini Katie to me.
