Katie Holmes isn't happy about Tom Cruise's absent in 11-year-old Suri's life.
According to a new report, Holmes' situation isn't ideal but she's learned to accept that Cruise's lifestyle choices have prevented him from playing an active role in her daughter's life.
“Katie has grown so tired, disappointed, and frustrated with Tom’s absence as a father,” a source close to Holmes revealed to Hollywood Life on September 21. “She has made peace with his lifestyle, work and spiritual choices, and has decided to do her best to parent Suri on her own.”
“Tom does not make time for Suri and she has learned to deal with not having her father around,” the insider continued. “As Suri matures into a young girl, she is learning more about who her father is in the world and about his busy lifestyle as a mega-star actor. But that does not make things any easier for the child.”
While Suri may be lacking when it comes to the paternal role model in her life, she and her mom have formed a great bond with one another and are said to be especially close. In addition, Suri has formed a relationship with Holmes' boyfriend, Jamie Foxx.
“Now that Jamie is more in the picture, Suri likes having a strong male role model in her life and Katie does too, because Tom has been simply absent for much of Suri’s formative years,” the insider dished. “What little communication Katie has with Tom, goes through Tom’s assistants, managers, or lawyers. They have been out of touch for years and Tom always has new excuses, usually based on traveling for work, as to why he cannot make time for Suri.”
