Katie Holmes ‘lying low with love’

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes is more concerned with being a single mother and building her acting career as opposed to dating.

The 34-year-old actress divorced Tom Cruise in 2012 after five years of marriage.

Now she is focused on taking care of their seven-year-old daughter Suri as opposed to finding love.

“She had the courage to leave and take control of her life. Things have been tough for her, but she’s happy. She’s moving on,” a producer told People magazine.

“She’s lying low on the romantic side of things. She doesn’t need that right now. Her focus is on Suri. I don’t think she’s ready.”

Katie was recently rumoured to be seeing her Mania Days co-star Luke Kirby.

However sources have since confirmed they “are just friends”.

Apparently the pair, “spend lots of time together [as] Luke thinks Katie is terrific.”

As well as looking after her child, Katie is also trying to make a bigger career for herself.

Apparently she is disappointed at her various rejections and flops including Broadway play Dead Accounts, which closed shortly after it opened at the end of last year.

“It’s been hard for her to find a job,” a friend said. “She hasn’t worked much, and it’s not by choice.”

As her youngster grows older and becomes aware of the changes at home, Katie is said to be finding single parenthood difficult to cope with.

The screen beauty regularly gets frustrated with balancing mothering duties and earning money.

“Katie seems flustered a lot,” a neighbour revealed. “You can see the struggle in her face. Suri is quite a handful.”
