Katie Holmes: Single and loving it

09 August 2012, 12:01

Los Angeles - Katie Holmes is a "new woman" since splitting from Tom Cruise.

The former Dawson's Creek actress filed for divorce from her husband of five years in June and insiders say she is happier than ever as she is no longer under his control or has to follow the rules of his religion, Scientology.

A source close to Katie - who has been given primary custody of the couple's six-year-old daughter Suri - told RadarOnline: "She now gets to see her family more, feels free to concentrate on her career and is no longer living in fear of Scientology.

"Katie is a new woman, she feels refreshed, free of Tom and doesn't have a worry in the world."

Embracing single life

Katie is also embracing single life as it means she can put herself first and not worry about upsetting Tom.

The source continued: "When before she used to fret if she was ever single, now she's happy to be alone. Katie's enjoying her independence and is working on herself right now.

"Tom also influenced what movies she appeared in, so she was unable to steer her career in the way she wanted to. Now, she has full control over what she wants to do and that freedom is exciting for her."

Katie, 33, and 50-year-old Tom signed a top-secret divorce settlement last month, which gave her primary custody of Suri while the Rock of Ages actor got extensive visitation rights.
