While Tom Cruise has yet to physically see his daughter Suri since news broke that he and her mother Katie Holmes were set to divorce earlier this month, he has allegedly been keeping up with her via video chatting.
It seems as part of the complex divorce and custody arrangements video chatting is a part of the settlement.
A source told RadarOnline: "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,"
"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 couple finalised details of their divorce settlement last week, (July 8) only 10 days after Katie filed for separation from her husband of five years. Managing to keep the details private and avoid a public court showdown.
But that doesn't mean the custody terms are straight forward as they reportedly contain a series of complex clauses and agreements that each parent has to follow.
"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,” the source explained.
It was revealed over the weekend that six year-old Suri will be attending New York's Convent of the Sacred Heart School for the first time this September after being home schooled for the first years of her education.
Sending her to a Catholic school, which boasts previous students Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga appears to show Katie moving away from the Scientology orientated world that she lived in with Tom with religion a key area of contention in the split.
“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," the source added.
"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."
