TOM Cruise has been using Skype to chat with his daughter Suri ever since Katie Holmes filed for divorce last month, RadarOnline reports. According to the site, Cruise — who’s recently been busy filming new movie Oblivion — has been relying technology to video chat with Suri while he’s been busy.
“It’s all part of the divorce settlement that Tom be allowed to video chat with Suri. Likewise, when Suri is with Tom, Katie can video chat with her,” a source said. “Tom and Katie were advised that this could be a very useful tool to help Suri with the adjustment of her parents getting divorced. Tom and Suri have been video chatting and Tom just lights up when her face appears on the computer screen.
“Tom and Suri also communicate on the telephone and there is no limit on the contact for either parent. If Suri wants to talk to Tom she will call him, with help of course. “The bulk of their divorce settlement deals with the custody agreement which is extremely detail oriented. Over 75% of the settlement documents deal with Suri and the custody agreement.
“There are provisions and clauses about which parent Suri will spend Thanksgiving, Christmas and her birthdays with. One of the most important clauses of the settlement is that NEITHER parent can talk negatively about the other in front of Suri and this includes anything about each parent’s respective religion.
“This was a crucial part of the custody agreement and something that both Tom and Katie wanted included. The custody settlement essentially puts both parents on notice that their personal feelings about each other can’t influence or harm Suri in any way and puts her needs first.”
Meanwhile, sources say Tom is still fuming over Katie’s betrayal and gearing up for the real fight — a no-holds barred battle against Katie for the soul of their daughter. “Tom will do whatever it takes to make sure he come out on top,” a source told America’s Star magazine.
“Everything is going on the line — the homes, the jets, the money in the bank. He’s worth $250 million, and he’s made it clear that he’s willing to spend every last cent fighting for Suri.”
