AN irate Tom Cruise is upset with his ex Katie Holmes over her steamy poses in a series of eye-popping photos, sources say.

The doe-eyed beauty let it all hang out in a sizzling new ad campaign for H. Stern in which she’s made to look naked and barely covering her breasts with her hands.

Besides that, 34-year-old Katie got wet and wild on the cover of the April issue of “Allure” magazine, appearing to be topless and dripping wet with a sultry, come-hither look on her face.

“I think Tom is fit to be tied over Katie’s red-hot new image,” an in­sider told The ENQUIRER. “It is sure to burn him up because he probably thinks Katie is deliberately trying to rub his nose in her sassy single-girl persona.

Katie’s provocative poses made worldwide headlines, and the 50-year-old “Mission: Impossible” hunk read her the riot act for putting herself on public display like that, says the source.
