Cruise and Holmes 'not splitting'

Tom Cruise's publicists are furiously denying reports the movie hunk and his pregnant fiancée Katie Holmes are splitting.

Soon after reports in US tabloid Life & Style surfaced yesterday, suggesting the couple had called off their wedding plans, Cruise's handlers fired off a statement rubbishing the claims.

The magazine claims it has quotes from several confirmed sources revealing the couple's relationship is over.

The insiders claim Cruise, 43, and Holmes, 27, plan to keep the romance going until the birth of their baby this spring.

The couple reportedly will live in Cruise's Beverly Hills, California mansion and stay in separate bedrooms through the summer and then officially announce the separation.

The tabloid claims Cruise plans to buy a home nearby for Holmes so he has access to his child and that they will share custody.

But Cruise's publicist blasts the reports, stating: "The story is 100% false.

"Mr Cruise and Ms Holmes are still engaged and are moving forward with their wedding plans, as well as planning for the arrival of their child.

"Despite the malicious fallacies put forth by Life & Style magazine, the couple is looking forward to a long and happy life together as a family."
