As Katie Holmes was taking Suri Cruise home from gymnastics class in Manhattan on Monday night, their Mercedez-Benz limo was sideswiped by a giant recycling truck. Everyone’s OK, and the limo was merely dented on the left rear fender, according to TMZ. But now it’s time for the rumors to fly! Was it really a recycling truck, or was it a truck driven by Scientologists looking to remind Katie that they are still watching her?
OR, we have an entirely new theory, the truck was a Decepticon, sent from its home planet of Cybertron to photograph Katie and Suri, believing them to be the leaders of Earth. An honest mistake, right? (Also, Comic-Con has melted my brain.)
Actually, what scares us most about this whole story is the fact that just before the accident, there were paparazzi taking all sorts of pics of Suri in her gymnastics class. This isn’t the first time, of course, but it’s a big reminder of just how creepy the paps are getting, hiding out to snap little girls in leotards. Katie, we hope this doesn’t deter you from continuing your outings to ice cream parlors and Whole Foods and Chelsea Piers. It’s great to see you two leading normal lives!
