Tom Cruise has painted on a brave face and seems to be getting on with his life after Katie Holmes filed for divorce. He flew to New York City to spend some time with Suri Cruise, but has left once again. New Yorkers may be seeing a lot more of the Mission Impossible actor in the months and years to come.
Apparently, the actor is looking for a home in NYC that will put him near his 6-year-old daughter. Katie packed up and moved out of the apartment she shared with Tom and found her own digs. Although there is a perfectly good, albeit empty apartment with Tom’s name on it, he does not want it any more. All those bad or fond memories with his ex-wife are a little more company than he wants.
A source reports, “He doesn’t want to go back to the East Village apartment where he was living with Katie.” Totally understandable. He is not the first divorcÃ© who wants to remove any reminders of their old life. According to the insider, “Tom’s looking for a new home here. He wants a fresh start.”
The actor has some specific requirements when it comes to his new East Coast base. “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,” the source reports. He is keeping Suri’s needs in mind as well and is reportedly looking for somewhere that offers plenty of space, indoors and out. Tom Cruise can certainly afford to buy a nice, safe home somewhere outside the city.
