Katie Holmes looks effortlessly chic in all black as she heads out for dinner with a friend in New York
Actress Katie Holmes kept it casual as she headed out to dinner with a friend in New York on Thursday.
The star looked effortlessly chic as she donned an all-black ensemble for the evening which showcased her slim frame.
The Dawson’s Creek star wore a fitted black racer back vest and wide leg black trousers which she paired with some shiny smart black shoes.
Katie let her voluminous brunette curls fall naturally over her shoulders as she accessorised the outfit with a collection of layered necklaces and her signature nose ring.
Enjoying a night out the star was pictured with the Vice President of Vision PR, Jessica Pierson.
Katie was married to Tom Cruise from 2006 until 2012 and the couple share 17-year-old Suri.
However it was revealed back in March that her Mission Impossible father ‘has no part’ in his child’s life.
Suri had been applying to colleges with the help of her mother, but Cruise was reportedly having no input.
A source close to Katie, 44, told DailyMail.com exclusively that Suri, who turns 17 next month, ‘has sent some applications out’ and is ‘leaning towards’ studying fashion in New York City – a choice that would make her style-savy mother Katie very pleased.
‘Suri is applying to schools all over the place. [Katie] really does want her to stay in New York so they can be close to each other. Katie takes great pride in her but is also extremely overprotective,’ the insider shared, adding that Katie is ‘overwhelmed’ by the idea of her daughter going off to college.
While Katie is taking an active role in helping her daughter with college applications, the teen’s father will not be lending a helping hand, having been estranged from his daughter since 2013, one year after he and Katie divorced.
At the time of their split, it was reported that Katie had chosen to end the couple’s marriage over fears about raising her daughter as a Scientologist – a religion that Tom is incredibly dedicated to.
Her decision to quit the religion, as well as the marriage, caused a major rift between the former spouses, which has seen Tom and Suri’s relationship become increasingly distant over the years.
The insider explained that Tom does ‘not have a part in [Suri’s] life’ – after it was previously revealed that the pair have not seen each other in years.
However, the source notes that – while Tom won’t have a hand in helping Suri choose where she goes to school – he will pay her college tuition costs, per his ultra-secret divorce agreement with his actress ex.
According to their divorce documents, Tom agreed to pay Katie $400,000 a year until Suri turned 18 years old.
The documents also state that Tom agreed to pay all of Suri’s expenses, including ‘medical, dental, insurance, education, college and other extracurricular costs.’
‘Tom has always maintained his responsibilities when it comes to financial obligations to Katie and Suri,’ the source told DailyMail.com.
