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.

Tom is a crazy nut and Katie is a stupid brainwashed idiot. These two should not have bred.

I think that poor little Suri, even though most babies are "cute", that she just isn't cute. And her dad can't stand not having a beautiful baby. He said she has wild hair,etc. Let's face it, some times beautiful parents have really ugly babies-til later on as they age. I really think this is what's heppening here! They're embarraased that Brad & Angelina & everyone has beautiful babies & they don't want theirs to be compared to anyone elses in the media.

There is a baby, and it is his---but Tom wants lots of attention and money. They are waiting until the baby becomes less wrinkled and colicky, etc and more beautiful. If the baby had been stillborn or ill, we would know it by now.

Oprah will get the first public glimpse, I am betting. Or Diane Sawyer will unveil the baby with tight security. They will go to Tom & Katie and baby---not them going to the show. I wonder if Barbara Walters has a shot?

I gained 60 lbs while pg and you cannot fake the changes in your appearance---Katie looked fat and swollen in the face --so I do think she really had a baby.
And I looked less pg at 9 months than I did at 7 months --The placement of the baby changes and you cannot go by a picture---
A conspiracy would have to involve so many fringe people and believe me people will talk who are on the fringes of it ...Why? they would get big bucks for the gossip! If someone offerred you a million to spill the beans wouldn't you?
He simply could not take a chance on that.

Tom was very disturbed when he did not get a lot of money for pics of his baby. So he is "stickin" it to the media and when she finally is unveiled, he will probably get 10 million or something. You wait.
Also--Remember his adopted children did not appear publicly for a very long time.
it had to be a real pregnancy and a real baby....
Besides her parents would have to be bought off and good luck with that....

I think Katie Holmes is a great actress......looks like she's wearing a pregnancy bodysuit......Mr. Cruise and his ex, the current Mrs. Urban were not able to have children, they adopted.......if Nic and Keith are blessed with a gorgeous bundle of joy.......we'll be able to surmise that maybe there never was a "Suri".
Katie has long said she 'idolized' Cruise as a teenager, wouldn't she 'do anything' to be with him, in his life????? Plus isn't Cruise really gay? Maybe he's afraid to be honest and tell the world.....Katie's a great 'smoke screen'....the "baby idea" was excellent........they should be nominated for an award!!!!
Some day, Cruise's looks will fade, his midriff with widen, his hair will whiten and thin, his teeth will be removable........just a matter of time.........now is his time to be arrogant and obnoxious......who really cares!!!!! You can tell I'm not a Cruise fan......Dr. McDreamy's more MY type of guy.

DOUG FLUTIE did not hide JR he loves his boy and was proud to give him his name. bless you FLUTIE theCUTIE,

First, i think Katie was impregnated by in vitro. She was hired specifically by TC (to play his girlfriend/wife and have "his" baby) because she bears a pretty uncanny resemblance to him and any offspring she produces may actually look as though it could be his child. This child will prove to be his the way Jacko's children will eventually prove to be HIS- NOT. I think the reason she has changed sizes so much is because the in vitro was successful a lot sooner than they thought it would be and the child was actually born at least a few weeks before they said it was. As for poor Katie, has anyone else noticed how WARY she always looks around him? and has since the beginning of their "relationship". She always has a look on her face like she doesnt know what to think of him, especially when he is throwing down a PDA. OH well, i am sure she regrets whatever she may have sold her soul for but we all know how privacy contracts work. She can't say a word or risk being sued, or being left behind when the mother ship arrives!!

give it a break let them live in privacy. if they want to show ther baby they will, the money issued on who will pay the most is outragous, they have enough money to live happily ever after, why do they want more. a baby is a baby. just cas your a hollwood star doesnt mean jack...... think about all the other babies that are born into this world with little of nothing to survive on but we all manage to give them the happiness that they all deserve one way or another. some are lucky ,some are not. suri is just one of the lucky ones. she wont know what its like to go hungry, to not have a roof over here head, no worries on what clothes she'll haven't to wear everyday, no wories on any finacial debts in life. she's one of the luckiest one, i count my blessing on those that are lessed unfortunate. may god bless us all

Shopping for shoes? Right before giving birth? the feet and legs are too swollen to be shopping for shoes. I remember thinking all i wanted to do was soak my feet and the only shopping for my feet was a good pair of soft comfy socks to wear at the hospital. Doesn't make sense.

First off, I have no clue why I'm reading or responding to this crap. It's stupid and the only people who buy into these "conspiracies" are middle-aged, fat, possibly balding losers with fifty cats. They probably also think that the Home Shopping Network is the greatest thing ever.

Secondly, WHO CARES?! What could Tom Cruise possibly hope to gain by faking a baby? As insane and--dare I say--'glib' as Cruise is, I doubt that even he would try to pull that off. How would he explain away a missing kid 18 years from now? "Oh, uh, she has a pimple and can't be seen... Sorry." And that's only assuming that he has a career 18 years from now.

I have been pregnant twice and There is NO DAMN way she could lose weight so fast...uh, no way! Not unless she was maybe buleimic, but the side by side photos...the first one doesn't even look like she's really pregnant. A mommy's tummy is round, not pointed no matter if the baby dropped it stays rounded out, and for her to lose weight before the baby's born, it was probably just a stuffed pillow like the ones they use at the maternity shops for mommys who are trying on clothes for months later on down the line. Yeah, there's no baby...if there was you know Tom would be showing it off, making pictures and all that junk. He has the money and if the baby was deformed or whatever they might be saying EVERY PARENT THINKS THEIR OWN CHILD IS BEAUTIFUL. It had to have a arm in the wrong place or something to the extent for them to not show it off. Like I said, there's no baby. They just wanted to get into the group. Everyone had one except them and they didn't really want one so they faked it. Why not? Some people are so sick...and stupid!
