The TomKat/Suri Conspiracy Timeline

7/12/2006 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been 86 days since the birth of Suri Cruise -- and about a split-second since the latest conspiracy theory about Hollywood's most elusive baby.

New rumors surface by the hour -- that Tom and Katie are holding out for a better magazine photo deal, that Scientology is involved in the mystery, that Suri doesn't even exist!

So what has fueled the rumors? TMZ has created a timeline that may explain why Suri is becoming a national obsession.


Take a look at these pictures. On March 25, Katie, who was eight months pregnant at the time, looked ginormous. But then, on April 5, 13 days before she gave birth, Katie seemed to shrink.

And there's more.


We have video of Katie shopping at Barney's in Beverly Hills just days before her delivery. Katie spent hours inside on a wild shopping spree, and there's buzz that one of the items she purchased was a pair of size 26 Chip and Pepper jeans (which translate to a size 2) -- a bit odd for someone who had a long way to go to regain her figure.

And, of course, there was the never-ending public appearances by TomKat. The paparazzi followed them continent by continent, as the couple was bursting with joy over their impending arrival. But everything changed on April 18, with the birth of Suri.

These are the only images we could find of Katie post-pregnancy. And, of course, zilch on Suri.

And, as TMZ first reported, there are items of curiosity on Suri's birth certificate.

So you ask, why the conspiracy theories? As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

P.A.    

i think this whole thing is crazy on the media and their theories. You all know what they call theory conspiracy folks!!! Katie & tom probably do not want the rest of the world to see their baby -- what is wrong with that? AND I am not even a Tom Cruise fan. Why don't we focus on what is wrong with the world -- world peace, environment, etc. So many things wrong and we focus on if anyone has seen "the baby".

I was just wondering if Kate Holmes born Katherine Noelle Holmes officially changed her name to "Kate Holmes". Also did Thomas Cruise Mapother IV change his name legally to "Thomas Cruise" Otherwise, this adds 2 more erroneous pieces of information to the birth certificate.

the pic of her shopping you can obviously tell that is a fake belly, she had that baby long before the 2nd sise by side pic was taken. how much you wanna bet that there was complications or something and they just want to keep it under raps for now. but the truth will come out sooner or later. deffinately an ugly conspericy. katie and tom are ugly anyway

Look who cares about the conspiracy thories, or better yet who honestly cares about tomkat and thier baby.. its all a ploy really. think about it Two Failing careers and horrible movies in the past.. they have to find a way to stay on top somehow right.. besides what makes thier baby so special.. Seriously I mean any parent who has children think thier kids are pretty special as for those side by side pics.. You would think that with the technology of computers people would assume that they could be photo enhanced

When a baby drops, it maybe change the roundness of the bump but does not make it concave or that much smaller. andrea

Who really cares?? This is probably what they wanted..more publicity. For those that have to keep up with the lives of the rich and famous..you all need to get a life..a real life. I dont know who I feel more sorry for..Tom and Katie or you.......

WHO GIVES A S**T ABOUT SURI, SHE IS NOT REAL. TOM AND KATE ARE WACKO, U CAN SEE IT IN THEIR EYES. TOM IS BRAINED WASHED BY THAT SO CALLED RELIGION (SO THEY DO NOT HAVE TO PAY ANY TAX) WHAT U PEOPLE HAVE TO DO IS STOP SEING HIS MOVIES, CUZ IT IS ALL GOING TO THAT CULT! EVENTHOUGH, I THINK HE IS SO CUTE, HE HAS NEVER GOTTEN A PENNY FROM ME. I AM NO FOOL! AND HE NEVER WILL.

Shopping Spree: That looks like a big fake to me, (katie is a sucky actress).
Photos of 10 day difference: It not THAT subtle that she's shooting the camera, (or pubic) a bird.
Tom's behavior: If he's a devout scientologist, and the common practice is for women not to cry out during the birthing process, then he's got to be lying about NOT letting her do it. (of course if she's not ever been pregnant he wouldn't be lying, he'd be laughing... and so would she).
Katie's behavior: Brainwashed
PDA: FABBED, 10 films w/ her horrible acting and they'll split. It's a contract you see.
Baby Suri: They have to adopt one first and this takes time.( you know, to pick one out).
The reason: Well, attention for one, comes to mind.
Time will tell, look for the clues. The whole thing rings of an exagerated facade, and a pathetic ploy for attention. Somebody's used to being a winner and will do anything to NOT lose,e.g. Brad and Angelia.
If someone did do a side by side compare, why is it that evryone knows just how and when B and A met, the pregnancy, where and when and pics of the baby, but never one declaration of the true love, (because there is no need).
The complete opposite is true of T and K.

On those strechmark photos. To me it looks like Katie was sitting down and the jeans left an impression on her. This is one funky story though.

Whatever    

Tom should not be alloweed to breed. He is insane. Katie is the only girl stupid enough to let him brainwash her with all that scientology malarky.
