Katies dad furious about shotgun wedding

Tom Cruises future father-in-law apparently isnt a happy camper.

Katie Holmess dad is said to be very upset because his unmarried daughter is pregnant with Cruises child. And, whats more, the devoutly Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his daughters involvement in her husband-to-bes controversial religion, Scientology.

[Martin Holmes] was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie, the forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes a close friend of Cruise as saying. Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right thing and get married before any baby came along. After scolding his daughter, according to the mag, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by declaring Youre no good.

He said he and his wife were very upset by the news, according to the source, and demanded the pair get married quickly.

Furthermore, a member of Christ the King Church, which the Holmes family belongs to, told L&S that Cruise and Holmes publicist, his sister Lee Anne DeVette, sent a letter to parishioners, asking them not to talk to reporters. Although a family friend told the mag that the Holmes family is thrilled by the news of a grandchild, theyre also concerned.

It seemed like Katie was being controlled by Scientologists, the friend told L&S. Now they wonder if its a Rosemarys Baby situation, where Katie is being groomed to provide Tom with a child.

DeVette didnt respond to The Scoops repeated requests for comment.
