Tom Cruise’s mother and sister finally move out – at Katie’s insistence

It seems Katie Holmesbot may have a backbone after all. Or at least a tail bone. It may have taken years and years, but Katie has finally gotten her way on one important issue – living alone with her husband and their children. Tom’s mother, sister, and his sister’s two children have been living with him for several years, since his divorce from Nicole Kidman. His sister Cass even homeschooled Tom and Nicole’s kids, and took care of them whenever he was traveling.

Katie has been rumored to be unhappy with the living arrangement pretty much since the time she first came into Tom’s life. Of course the thought of Katie Holmesbot having a say in who lives in her house is kind of ridiculous, so it didn’t seem like anything would ever come of it. But she’s finally gotten her way – when the couple moved into their new home, mom and sister Cruise stayed behind, and are now living at the Scientology Centre.

…when Katie and Tom recently moved into a $35 million home in Beverly Hills, Katie put her foot down and insisted that everyone – other than Suri and Tom’s two children with Nicole Kidman, Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13 – find another place to live. “It’s about time for Tom and Katie to live alone,” another pal adds. “They never have before.”

The adjustment may be difficult for Tom, 46. His mother, Mary Lee South, and three sisters have been a constant presence in his life since he divorced Nicole in 2001. All are Scientologists, and Mary Lee and sister Cass have lived with him at different points. “He’s very close with his sisters and his mother and he always welcomes his family into his house,” an insider says …“Cass and her sons have been an integral part of Tom’s life, and Cass helps take care of Tom’s children when he is away,” adds the insider.
