A few were surprised by the public display of affection, with one saying, "Shocking." However, some fans brushed off the fuss, with one remarking, "Lol. It's just a simple kiss. Nothing dramatic. Not a big deal."

Suri and her boyfriend, Toby stole the spotlight on Wednesday, 19 as they stepped out in New York City for their high school prom. The LaGuardia High School students attended the glamorous event at the Ascent Lounge in midtown Manhattan. Their appearance had everyone talking.

One fan even remarked, "She definitely looks like her dad... but of course prettier." Suri's outfit also sparked a range of opinions. Admirers gushed over her look, with one saying, "A very pretty dress," while some critics deemed it "very revealing."

The artistic teen, with a keen interest in fashion, applied to several colleges before making her choice. Suri shared her college plans in a fun TikTok video where she and her friends revealed their chosen schools by wearing their respective sweatshirts.

The video, posted by a fellow student from New York City's LaGuardia High School, was captioned "LaG commitment day." Set to Abbi Sutphen's song "Always Remember You," the clip featured about a dozen students sporting sweatshirts with their future college names.

When the camera panned to Suri, she proudly showcased her red Carnegie Mellon hoodie, with "Carnegie Mellon" written in bold white letters across the chest.

Grinning and making playful faces, she highlighted her school's name with enthusiasm. Katie is undoubtedly proud of her daughter's stellar achievements, but sources say she's feeling overwhelmed at the thought of sending Suri off to college.

Suri's college expenses will be covered by her dad, Tom, as agreed in their divorce settlement, which includes an annual payment of $400,000 until she turned 18. However, Tom's involvement in Suri's life has been mostly financial, as the two reportedly haven't been seen together since 2013.

Their estranged relationship took a dramatic turn recently when Suri, now 18, decided to drop her father's surname. She made this bold change public during her performance in the musical "Head Over Heels" in New York, where she played Princess Philoclea.

The casting sheet for the high school playlisted her as Suri Noelle, adopting her mother's middle name—Holmes' full name is Kate Noelle Holmes. After announcing the change, Suri was spotted strolling through New York City, wearing a pink top and white pants, with earphones in, appearing unbothered.

Now that she has turned 18, her legal adulthood brings more than just a name change; it also gives her the freedom to speak openly about her personal life, including her relationship with her father and his ties to Scientology.

Scientology expert Tony Ortega noted that Suri was previously too young to be bound by any agreements restricting her from speaking out. Now, as an adult, she has the liberty to share her thoughts if she chooses, and Ortega suggests it will be intriguing to hear what she might reveal.

He also pointed out that Katie left Tom when Suri was just six to protect her from the influence of his religion, having seen its impact on Tom's older children, Isabella and Connor. Whether Suri decides to open up or keep her personal matters private, her 18th birthday marks the start of an exciting new chapter.
