It has been four years since Tom Cruise has seen his daughter Suri. Now, In Touch has learned exclusively that Katie Holmes has tried to get in touch with Tom in hopes he could visit with his daughter in person.

Tom and Suri’s last public outing — a mini-golf playdate in Lake Placid, N.Y., — took place 1,465 days ago. “She has reached out…in the hopes of opening a dialogue about resuming contact with Suri,” a source tells In Touch.

Though Katie, who blindsided the Hollywood icon by filing for divorce in 2012 after nearly six years of marriage, has happily moved on with Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, says the source, “she truly wants Tom to be a part of Suri’s life.”

Tom has repeatedly refused to answer In Touch’s detailed questions about why he no longer visits Suri. He also avoids the topic during media interviews promoting his projects. And he seems more deeply immersed in Scientology than ever after selling his Beverly Hills mansion for a reported $40 million in 2016. His new home: Clearwater, FL, where Scientology has its headquarters.

Still, distance is no match for Katie’s resolve. “Tom is Suri’s father,” the source tells In Touch, “and she wants them to have a relationship.”
