NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tom Cruise visited his daughter Suri in New York City on Tuesday for the first time since his high-profile divorce from her mother, actress Katie Holmes, People magazine reported.

The 50-year-old Hollywood star was photographed holding his 6-year-old daughter on a New York street as she wraps one arm around the "Mission: Impossible" star's neck and in the other, clutches a stuffed animal toy. The picture was posted on People's website.

Cruise was filming his latest movie in Iceland back in June when Holmes, 33, filed for a divorce, surprising the Hollywood superstar. Since then, he has returned to the United States and the pair have settled issues including custody of Suri. Celebrity watchers have eagerly awaited the day when Cruise would reunite with his daughter.

Separately on Monday night, Holmes and Suri were involved in a minor car accident with a sanitation truck in New York but were not hurt, a police source said.

Holmes was in a Mercedes with their daughter when a New York City Sanitation truck hit the car, the source said.

A New York Police Department spokesman said an accident involving a Mercedes and a truck occurred around 9:30 p.m. EDT on Monday (0130 GMT on Tuesday) but said he could not name the passengers. A separate source speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed Holmes and her daughter were in the car.

There were no injuries and no criminal charges were expected, police said.

Representatives for Holmes could not immediately be reached.

Mercy! Is it going to be World News every time Cruise visits Suri?
Not a good way to raise a child.

As a parent, I would like to see Suri having a great and close relationship with her parents. But since I know Tom Cruise personally and witness his verbal and physical abuses and know that he is only visiting Suire for PR purposes, I also know Tom Cruise is plotting a way to start brainwashing Suri. I hate to se Suri hurt in a long run, because I know Tom Cruise’s nasty intentions. Tom’s man-wife David Miscavige would do anything to keep Tom Cruise “devoted to himself. It is because of David Miscavige (leader of the church of scientology) that Tom Cruise lost 3 marriages and several girlfriends. I have first hand information on how David Miscavige ordered his right hand man, Greg Wilhere and Tommy Davis (Ann Archer’s son) and Tommy’s wife Jessica Feschback (now dying of Leukemia) to audition girls 20-25 years old in 2004-2005 and once approved by David Miscavige then pass her on to Tom Cruise. Tom tried several girls who blindly walked in to a “Special project” and then when they couldn’t control those girls, they would be disappeared, till Katie Holmes came along. They thought Katie would be stupid and nahieve for them to control, but Katie proved them wrong and freed herself and Suri.

I wish them best and hope Tom Cruise and his lover David Miscavige get the justice they through deserve for their crimes.
