Katie Holmes Slams Depression Stories

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has lashed out at reports his fiancée Katie Holmes is suffering from postnatal depression following the birth of their daughter, Suri, last month.

Several U.S. and UK publications claimed this week the Batman Begins beauty, 27, was "constantly in tears" since becoming a mother.

However, Cruise's publicist says, "Those reports are not true. Ms. Holmes is doing wonderfully."

Scientologist Cruise's stance on treatment for postnatal depression is well known, after he publicly criticized actress Brooke Shields last year for using antidepressants to treat her baby blues after giving birth to her daughter Rowan in 2003.

Cruise insists postpartum depression sufferers can be cured without medication, saying, "You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things."

Shields fired back, "I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mr. Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression. Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women decide what treatment is best."
