suri cruise disappears from us weekly


Us Weekly posted a blog entry twelve hours ago about the mystery that is Suri Cruise -- and now the posting is gone. The article was also accompanied by an image of this week's Us Weekly cover in which Suri Cruise is the top story.

Check out what the posting said -

Where is Suri?
Three months after her birth, Baby Suri, is still unseen, even by the family’s closest friends. A source says Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have yet to show her off to fellow Scientologists John Travolta, Kelly Preston and Lisa Marie Presley. Even good pals Will and Jada Pinkett Smith supposedly have not met her, despite repeated calls to Cruise. “Every time, it’s a different excuse: He’s busy or Kate’s not feeling well,” says a source. ‘[The Smiths] think it’s so weird.”

Soon after the baby was born, photo agency WireImage approached multiple outlets (including Us) with the news that it would be offering pictures of Suri for auction. Days later, on May 11, before official bidding was even underway, the agency sent out an e-mail declaring that “the baby shoot is on hold for now. There is no additional info as to when this may happen or if it will even happen at all.”

What’s behind the secrecy? And what about TomKat’s wedding, which Cruise promised would happen either mid-summer or fall? For more details, check out the current issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands this week.
