KIDMAN SPEAKS OUT
Nicole Kidman made her feelings of abandonment known in her attorneys' written response to Tom Cruise's divorce petition, Reuters reports. "This came as a shock to respondent [Kidman],'' the papers said. "On Dec. 24, the parties had happily celebrated their 10th anniversary with a group of friends. During the balance of December and thereafter, the parties were intimate. In fact, respondent [Kidman] became pregnant by petitioner [Cruise] but lost the baby through a miscarriage." Furthermore, the papers assert, Kidman "protested [Cruise's] intention to dissolve their marriage and urged him not to leave, but to enter marriage counseling with her or take other steps to address whatever problems may have existed in their marriage. [But Cruise] said his decision was final and he departed the parties' home."
