KATIE Holmes is prepared to play tough in her divorce from Tom Cruise.
RadarOnline reports that Katie’s lawyer, Allan E. Mayefsky, has a reputation for being ruthless, nasty, tough and cutthroat.
Legal analyst and author Lisa Bloom said Katie made a tactical move in hiring Mayefsky, who previously represented Peter Cook in his divorce from Christie Brinkley.
“She’s making it clear she’s going to play tough. Cruise is more of a high-profile celebrity than she is, so he has a greater distance to fall if grievances are aired,” said Bloom.
“Everyone has dirty laundry they don’t want aired. She’s saying play fair with me or else … Of course she would choose an experienced and tough lawyer. But the fact that she’d choose someone who’s been known to go to media in the past signals that she might have hired him for that reason.”
