Since Tom and Katie got married this past fall they've had Isabella and Connor, which means Nicole has barely spent any time with her children. Currently Nicole is down in Australia while she shoots a film. She'd love to spend more time with her children.
Keith has made remarks that due to his rehab time he hasn't had the opportunity to really get to know his new stepchildren and would like the chance. Nicole and Keith are planning on fixing that come this fall.
Does this mean there may be a custody issue? Is Tom willing to send the kids so far away? Something tells me they won't get to see them for too long. Tom does seem very connected with the children and I can't see him spending that much time away from them. I also believe that he may use the issue that Keith has had a drug problem.
