Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes” shock split surprised Hollywood. But a friend of the former couple insists any ripples of tension caused by their divorce have settled into calm waters.
Adam Shankman, who directed Tom”s 2012 film Rock of Ages, has given US Weekly an update on the pair”s new lives, saying “they are incredibly happy” and confirming that the couple”s daughter, Suri, 6, sees both her parents.
Speaking of Tom, 50, Adam said: “I”ve just been emailing with him. He”s coming back. He”s shooting [All You Need Is Kill] in London and seems as happy as a clam. I know he sees his daughter”.
“Katie seems really happy,” he added of the actress, who he knows from their time as judges on hit US show, So You Think You Can Dance.
Both Tom and Katie, 34, have been rebuilding their lives following a quickie divorce in the summer of 2012.
They reached an agreement less than two weeks into their headline-dominating separation but, despite the swift solution, Tom”s lawyer Burt Fields said his client was “still tremendously saddened and shocked about the divorce.”
“Tom is obviously relieved that the settlement was reached, but is still sad, obviously,” he said.
The couple agreed that Suri should live in New York with her mother, and the little girl has since enjoyed various visits to her father on the UK set of his latest film, All You Need Is Kill.
Katie, meanwhile, has been carrying on with life as a working single mother, enjoying critical acclaim with her Broadway play Dead Accounts as well as continuing success with the Holmes & Yang fashion line, which she runs with her stylist Jeanne Yangher.
