Tom CruiseSuri Cruise has seen a lot of changes in the past few months. Not only did the little girl start school for the first time ever but her parents obviously split up too. And it looks like daddy Tom Cruise is starting to feel a bit of that sole custody pain.

People reports that the father hasn’t seen his daughter in over a month but that they are Chatty Cathys:

“Tom talks to Suri several times a day. He misses Suri very much,” the source says…”

[Tom and Suri]

are very, very close,” the source adds. “He’s up on everything that’s going on in her life.”

Cruise has reportedly been away from his youngest because he has been on location filming in Europe. Not to mention that Suri now officially takes up full-time residence with Katie Holmes according to that speedy divorce settlement. However, considering the grand PR narrative that Team Katie managed to spin, in which Katy emerges as strong single mother, Team Tom is going to have to a hire a much better publicist before the public starts feeling his pain.
