Emerging from the shadows of shame after getting ditched by his wife of five years, Tom Cruise arrived in New York City to meet up with his daughter.
After two weeks of Katie Holmes being spotted out and about with Suri since the split, Tom has stopped in for some family time and headlines of his own. Tom was snapped carrying Suri into a New York City hotel, doing his best to dodge cameras.
According to People magazine, the visit has been a long time coming.
"He's been dying to see her," a source said.
Cruise has been in Iceland shooting for a new sci-fi film Oblivion before production moved to wrap in northern California. It was when Tom was over in Iceland when he first heard about Katie’s divorce filing. This is the first time he’s been seen with Suri since.
Also present at the hotel was Tom’s sis Cass Mapother. The family member was spotted in the elevator with her arms full of gifts, including some stuffed animals and a bag of mystery goods.
Since the report that Tom and Katie had reached a mutual, out-of-court agreement, the waters have yet to be publicly tested. But, with this new sighting as proof, it seems that Hollywood’s newest ex-couple are, in fact, playing nice.
A previous statement from Katie’s lawyer Jonathan W. Wolfe seemed to predict the current calm temperament of Suri’s parents.
“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed,” said Wolfe. “We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”
Despite skepticism, Suri’s best interest seems to be the MVP so far for both of Tom and Kate’s opposing teams.
