London: Tom Cruise’s lawyer has said that the actor, who is “still saddened and shocked” by the split, is planning to see his daughter Suri “very soon.”
The ‘Mission Impossible’ star is struggling to get to grips with being dumped by Katie Holmes after five years of marriage.
The father and daughter have been apart for almost a month but have been speaking regularly on the phone.
“Tom will be seeing Suri very soon, I don’t know exactly when that will be, and I couldn’t tell you, but I do know it will be very soon,” the Daily Mail quoted Cruise’s lawyer, Bert Fields, as telling Radar Online.
“Tom loves his Suri very, very much, as he does his other two children. Tom is a family man, and dedicated to his children. They are the center of his world,” he added.
Although the divorce settlement was done swiftly, Cruise is “still tremendously saddened and shocked about the divorce.”
“Tom is obviously relieved that the settlement was reached, but is still sad, obviously,” the lawyer said.
Holmes has sole custody of Suri as part of the settlement agreement, but the actor will have substantial visitation rights.
