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.

With everything going on in the world, is this really thhaatttt important? a little curious maybe, but they know the second they walk out of their home they are going to be hounded by photographers, of course they arent in a rush to do that. as nosy as we all are since we are reading this, they are still entitiled to privacy and hopefully all is well with the baby.

OK, TOM, KATE,
MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU. IF THERE IS A DISFIGUREMENT, IT DOESNT MATTER, BECAUSE A LIFE IS A LIFE AND GOD LOVES US ALL REGARDLESS OF HOW WE LOOK. IF I WERE IN THE CAMERA ALL THE TIME, I WOULD GET SICK OF IT TOO. I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE THINK YOUR SO DIFFERENT FROM THE AVERAGE JOE, ONLY DIFFERENCE IS YOU HAVE A GIFT OF ACTING SO THAT OTHERS CAN ESCAPE WHATEVER TRIALS THEY ARE GOING THROUGH BY WATCHING YOUR ART. THANK YOU FOR THAT! AS FOR SURI, THANK GOD FOR HER AND SHE IS PRECIOUS IN GOD'S SIGHT. TEACH HER HOW TO LOVE HERSELF AND OTHERS. AGAIN, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.

This is just unreal, alot of hollywood couples hide there kids, not everyone is Brad Pit and angelina Jolie! Another thing, in the 1st pic it looks like her hands r in her shirt on her bump, and for the 2nd one, most mothers know, the closer u get to giving birth the baby drops.

Alright, this is to the person who posted comment 44..in the first picture with the side-by-side, her arms are not around her stomach. They are in her sleeves. If they weren't..what is that odd fist-shaped thing at the bottom of her sleeve? Hmm?

And this is to everyone who keeps talking about the baby dropping, if the baby did indeed drop then why does she look so BIG again at the Barney's shopping trip? Which was "days before the delivery" which makes me think it was *less than* thirteen days. So, did they baby drop and then come back up again? I doubt it.

Why the need for a fake baby? Lest we forget Mimi Rogers wife #1 said Tom had problems in bed (they were trying for a baby) fueling the HE'S GAY rumors.
Does anybody really believe he and Katie "did it."
After all his nutty couch jumping AND wanting to eat the baby's pacenta? only show that he's nutty as a friut cake- so I hope he hasn't reproduced!
But D*MN he's F***ING HOT!

From that vid of Katie shopping, she looks like she's stuffed with a livingroom ottoman. I mean, JEEZ! How big can you get carrying one child. I've never seen anyone pregnant with one child get nearly that big!

Who can blame them with not going public. People are saying some crazy crap. She's really not pregnant or it's a monster baby. Let them enjoy this time. Why are pepole so judgemental when we don't know these people. Find a hobby and stop acting like you know their business. We only wish we were pals with them. Keep dreaming. I wish them all the best.Its easy to judge but look into your own problems! Bet your not perfect.

I was thinking the very same thing about that video of Katie shopping in Barneys...she does NOT walk like a pregnant woman! She is just strolling around, no pregnant 'waddle' or anything. Amazing. I really don't care either way, but it seems so weird to go to such great lengths to create this illusion. Pathetic really. So let's just hope that it's all good and there is a Suri somewhere out there!!

i think maybe theres something wrong with the baby or maybe just a publicity stunt... i'm sort of worried about katie. The whole sciencetology is confusing and i don't know if i could give birth by myself... maybe having to put up with Tom is making Katie crazy. I just hope eveyrthing's ok, eventually we'll all find out

Whatever    

tomkat are two stupid turkeys. How pathetic is it to foam at the mouth whenever they see a camera and blab on and on about how much they love each other and can't wait for the baby then hide it? Do these morons think the public will be waiting on pins and needles to finally see a baby picture? Tom needs therapy including pills. Someone should sneak pills into his morning cup of coffee.

I have said all along that I don't think she was ever actually pregnant. The "Suri sightings" by other celebs are pretty much confirm that the Hollywood Elite stick together. Who's to say Tom is putting them up to it?

I can't wait to hear the real story on this whole bizzaro relationship. I think it will turn out to be the ultimate scam. Cruise is obviously gone over to "Hubbard World". Hope Katie can escape!!

Just heard Tom will be selling pics of the baby to Vanity Fair. There goes the theory of him wanting to protect her from the media.
