The Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce case might have been quietly handled and swept under the rug, but that definitely didn’t keep Americans from exercising their first amendment right!
The Hollywood Reporter recently conducted a series of polls amongst the general American public, seeing just what they thought of all the divorce dramz!
Let’s start with the custody of little six-year-old Suri — 48% thought Katie should get sole custody, whereas only 6% thought Tom should! 46% of people believe the couple should share the rights.
Now for Katie’s career…will it improve, stay the same or crash and burn, now that she’s split from Tom??
Well, it looks like America is hopeful for Mz. Holmes — 49% think her career WILL improve and 35% think she’s ready to jumpstart her next big movie!
As for how the TomKat divorce case faired when put up against other hot topics? 91% of 13-49-year-olds were aware of it, as opposed to only 84%, who were more informed on Obamacare!
So, who does America place the blame in the whole scheme of things? 79% think Tom is at fault and 85% think Katie wins in the long run!
The divorce settlement in itself was SUPER speedy, leaving 65% figuring it was all for Suri’s benefit…though one-third believe Katie has info on Tom that he doesn’t want getting out! 24% think Scientology had something to do with how fast things were settled.
While on the topic of Scientology, 60% think it was the MAIN reason for the split, whereas 52% think differing parenting views for Suri were to blame.
As for 47%? They think the two just fell out of love after five years of marriage and 81% of Americans believe Katie handled her divorce from Tom better than Nicole Kidman did in 2001!
Well, Perezcious readers, looks like Katie reigns supreme overall!
