Tom Cruise Washington, May 1 (ANI): Tom Cruise has opened doors of his Beverly Hills mansion for wife Katie Holmes’ recently widowed sister, while she grieves the loss of her estranged husband.

Holmes’ eldest sister Tamera was married to Joseph Jeffrey Fretti, who died because of a heart attack at his mother’s home in Sarasota, Florida on April 12.

Tamera, 41, had filed for divorce on Feb 13, but was left distraught by the tragedy.

When the ‘Top Gun’ star saw how worried Holmes was for her sister - a single mum of two-he invited his sister-in-law and her kids into his home to help her deal with grief.

“Katie was so worried and upset for Tammy. They are really close and Katie wanted to help any way she could,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the National Enquirer.

The source added: “Then Tom came up with the idea of inviting Tammy and the boys to live with them. It meant Katie could keep a close watch on her sister and help her through this tough time. Tom really was a saviour. He wants Katie to be happy, and he knew this would make it so much easier for her.

“The fact that Tom stepped forward and offered to open his home to Tammy and her boys was a great comfort to Katie, her sister and the entire Holmes family at this difficult time.” (ANI)
