- Tom Cruise is set to buy a new home in New York City so he can spend more time with daughter Suri. The Rock of Ages actor is said to be looking into purchasing a new property in the city after estranged wife Katie Holmes relocated to 'The Big Apple' following her decision to divorce Tom and was then given primary custody of the six-year-old girl in their divorce settlement. Katie, 33, intends to live permanently in New York with Suri, so Tom wants a base there so he can see his child whenever he wants.
- A source told the New York Post: "Tom's looking for a new home here. He wants a fresh start. He doesn't want to go back to the East Village apartment where he was living with Katie. He's looking for something that's very private where he won't have to deal with going through a lobby, and people outside all the time."
Tom - who lives with his eldest children, Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Connor in the former couple's home in Beverly Hills, has told friends his main concern is having enough space for Suri to play in.
One pal said: "He also wants to have a nice amount of space for Suri, with outdoor space. That could mean high-end luxury apartments, but he's also looking at houses outside of the city or in gated communities." Katie filed for divorce last month after five years of marriage and they agreed on their divorce settlement within a matter of weeks, with the former Dawson's Creek
star getting primary custody of Suri with Tom being granted visitation rights.
