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.

IF EVERYONE STOPPED FOCUSING SO MUCH ON TRYING TO SEE THE BABY AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON - EITHER THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT OR IF THERE IS NO BABY WE WILL HERE AND SEE NOTHING. THE ONLY THING THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE GOING ON IS THAT THEY ARE WAITING FOR ANOTHER MOVIE TO PROMOTE OR TOM IS TRYING TO COVER UP THE THE RUMORS ALL THESE YEARS THAT HE IS GAY. IF HE LOVED HER SO MUCH, THEN HE SHOULD HAVE MARRIED HER ALREADY. ALL THE HIPE BEFORE THE BABY WAS RIDICULOUS AND IT WAS VERY TIMELY THAT WHEN TOM DID THE INTERVIEW WITH DIANE SAWYER, SHE CALLED IN ON HIS CELL AND THEY SHOWED IT ON TV. WHAT PERFECT TIMING.MY FEELINGS - IT IS A COVER FOR HIS SEXUALITY.BE DONE WITH THEM AND THE TRUTH WILL SURFACE.I USED TO THINK THAT TOM WAS A DECENT GUY BUT AFTER THAT VERBAL ATTACK ON MATT LAUER WAS OUT OF LINE. WHO DIED AND MADE TOM GOD?HE HAS NO MORALS WHATSOEVER AND IF HE DID HE WOULDN'T BE WITH SOMEONE SO YOUNG AND BE SO HIGH AND MIGHTY ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE THINKS HE KNOWS EVERYTHING AND THE WHOLE JUVENILE BEHAVIOR DURING THE "PREGNANCY".TOM NEEDS TO GROW UP.

The side-by-side photos are a red herring. In the 2nd one she is photographed from an angle more behind her [vs. a true silhouette.]

HOWEVER..... I, too, find it a bit weird and suspicious that Tom Cruise and Suri have shunned the spotlight since the birth. For almost a year you couldn't watch TV or read a mag without Tom eagerly appearing, usually with what's-her-name gazing at him adoringly.

Whether there is really a live baby or not, you gotta wonder if Tom didn't just offer her several million $$$ and priceless publicity if she'd pretend to be madly in love with him. While Nicole Kidman is an outstanding actress, would anybody even know about her if she hadn't been handpicked by TC to be his co-star and love interest.

If you've gotten this far, you're interested enough to seek out the comments made by his 1st known wife, Mimi Rodgers. This dude is just too weird. I don't think he's gay, I think he's nuts.

I knew a publicist on the set of "Days Of Thunder" who had a terrible time keeping Tom out of the papers when he was late-nighting in gay bars.
He is using Katie so his "fans" will think he's straight.
Let the little queen Tom come sue me... Loser.

Interesting enough sometimes when a baby dies in birth in a religious scientology setting it will remain a mystery and your not allowed to tell anyone and make it public. I know cause I had family involved in scientology, TMZ needs to check that one out..

The rumour I heard is that as a sick joke...the staff at the sperm bank gave Katie a black man's sperm....or maybe I started that rumour....

If I never hear the name of Tom Cruise, Katy Holmes, or their baby again, it will be too soon. Who cares? They put their pants on one leg at a time (when they aren't in each other's pants) just like every body else in the world. I think Paramount was wise to get rid of him. I think he was getting more and more obnoxious every week. I feel sorry for her. It appeared as if she was being dragged along everywhere they went, like she wasn't really in to what and where they were going. About their baby, if it exists; poor thing. I hope she has plenty of money to spend on a psychiatist's couch undoing the damage done to her by a father too full of himself.

I agree, this was two weeks before the birth so this makes perfect sense. The baby would have moved into the pelvic cavity and "dropped" in preparation for the birth. Lock & load, baby!

I think that the reason why Suri pictures have not surfaced yet is because something may be wrong with the baby.

i think that he is gay or cannot have kids and he had Katie invitro-fertilizationized with his kid, since she was a virgin up until they met, I think he thought it would be God-like to have a virgin birth! That is why the pictures don't add up and that is why no one has seen the baby, cuz the baby is older than we think it is, she had it like 2 months before we thought she did. Think about it, they met and went on a date and then he purposed and then she announced her pregnacy?? All in like one week, I don't buy it.

Anyone else thought that maybe she really did have a baby.. and the baby was born prior to the shot taken on the right?? I think she had the baby full term, they were covering up the due date as she was pregnant prior to her and T.C. hooking up.. Then when the baby was born, the baby was a different race??? How would they explain that???? The truth would then have to come out once the baby was seen in public!! Face it, Tom is gay, and for what ever reason he just doesn't want to admit it!!!!!

A co-worker brought up this theory, they(Tom-Katie) had a adoption lined up. She had a prothesis for the belly (obvious) it is Hollywood after all not that difficult to pull off, the adoption fell apart, death, change of heart by mother etc. Now they are looking for a new baby same age. Who knows but something is very fishy here right?
