NICOLE KIDMAN's plans to spend CHRISTMAS (01) with her family and ex-husband TOM CRUISE in Sydney will be strained by the presence of PenÚlope CRUZ. Nicole and Tom, who divorced in August (01) after 11 years together, want to prove their split is amicable for the sake of their two children ISABELLA, eight and CONOR, six.
But although Cruise has promised to spend the holiday with his ex-wife and kids in the Australian city, new love-interest Cruz will not be far away. She is due to fly in to Sydney on 19 December (01) to promote her new movie VANILLA SKY (2001), which also stars boyfriend Cruise. (KMW/WNWCNA/KW)
