Katie Holmes is “disappointed” at the release of a new tell-all book which may drudge up bad memories about the end of her relationship with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Who Is Katie Holmes? An Unauthorized Biography by Marc Shapiro was released on Wednesday.

Radar Online reports that the 34-year-old actress-and-mother “doesn’t see the point” of the tell-all tome, which may drudge up memories she would rather forget.  

“Katie has been so focused on Suri and getting her career back on track, that she just doesn’t see the point in someone publishing a book with stories that have already been reported in the past,” a source told the website.

“She’s disappointed that people try to capitalise on her life… especially when it’s certain things from the past she’s been trying to let go of.”

Insiders told Radar that Katie is “annoyed” that elements of her life including her relationship with Tom Cruise, the Church of Scientology and her childhood are being “rehashed for public consumption.”

The actress married the Mission Impossible star in 2006, and their divorce was finalised last summer and their daughter Suri will turn seven-years-old next month.

Despite Katie’s disappointment at the book’s existence, the source maintained to Radar that she was firmly “focused on her future.”

“Nothing is going to bring her down,” the insider insisted.

The book’s author Marc is a New York Times best-selling celebrity biographer.

He maintains that this new work will benefit readers and possibly Katie as well.

“Katie Holmes is not the typical Hollywood rags to riches story. In true storybook fashion she came out of nowhere to become the next big thing with Dawson’s Creek, but after her sudden stardom she became just another working actress,” he said.

“She tossed her career away when she married Tom Cruise. Now, post TomKat, the fire is burning again and she has returned to her true love, with the possibility of true accomplishment. The Katie Holmes story we tell is something everyone, in varying degrees, has experienced and we can all relate to.”
