Tom Cruise has finally reunited with his daughter. Cruise arrived in Manhattan. According to TMZ, he picked his daughter up from Katie Holmes’ apartment. He was reportedly there for only five minutes and did not see his estranged wife.
Photographers snapped pictures of the father-daughter duo walking through the streets of Manhattan. Suri was clad in a little orange dress and patent leather flats as her dad carried her through the city. Several reports say that they will spend “several days” together and one of their outings included Suri’s gymnastics lessons. Cruise’s sister Cass Mapother was also seen carrying toys into the Greenwich Hotel where Cruise is currently staying.
This is the first time Suri and her father have been seen together in about a month. Their last public outing was dinner at a sushi restaurant in Iceland with Katie Holmes on June 16. Holmes filed for divorce almost two weeks later.
According to Radar Online, Cruise had been keeping in contact with Suri via video chat software while he was filming his newest film Oblivion in Iceland. “Katie wants to make sure the visits are in the context of him being a parent figure,” said a source close to Holmes. “He adores Suri, but now he’s afraid he won’t be able to have a close relationship with her.”
In addition to the divorce drama, Holmes and Suri were involved in a minor car crash on Monday evening. According to Reuters, the Mercedes Benz the pair was riding in was struck by a sanitation truck at around 9:30 p.m. There were no injuries and, according to police on the scene, the car had a large dent and some scratches on its surface. “It was nothing major other than the fact that it was Katie Holmes,” said a witness at the scene of the accident.
