Yes, it's true ... this afternoon outside Taverna Tony in Malibu, our photog asked Tom how he was doing ... and he said, "Good."

It's not much, but it is the first time Tom has talked on camera since his split from Katie Holmes ... who just last night topped Tom by uttering three words to our photog in NYC.

A chatty bunch, aren't they?

Yes, it's true ... last night outside the NoMad Hotel in New York City, our photog asked Katie how dinner was and she said, "Great, thank you." It's not much, but it's the first time Katie has talked on camera since her split from Tom Cruise. It counts, right?

The video is also interesting because Katie walked out with no security and no car waiting for her -- she hopped in a cab instead. 

Ain't freedom grand?

Tom Cruise
has had it with reports he's a bad dad, and his lawyer is calling one of the mags on the carpet.

Attorney Bert Fields just fired off an email, attacking "Life & Style," for what he says is "a bogus cover headline that Suri has been 'ABANDONED BY HER DAD.'"

Fields says, "That, as anyone knows who saw their photos together yesterday and today, is a disgusting, vicious lie." Fields goes on, "Until this week, Tom was shooting a film on location, but he spoke to Suri every day."

Fields adds, "He's with Suri right now; and he was with her the day before Life & Style trumpeted their cruelly false accusation. Tom dearly loves Suri and the last thing he would ever do is abandoned her."

As her 6-year-old daughter took a chopper ride with her 50-year-old estranged husband ... Katie went to SoulCycle for a little spinning.

Katie spins a lot ... at least that's what Tom's people say.

Tom Cruise capped off his first day back with Suri with a fancy sleepover at his swanky Manhattan hotel ... and now the father-daughter duo is all set for another day of fun, excitement and helicopters.

Security blanket? Check.
Dolly? Check.
Stuffed animal? Check.

We're told Tom rented out 3 suites for himself and staff ... so they had all sorts of room to play and hang out.

As for today ... Tom and Suri just boarded a chopper ... and we're told the two have an action-packed day ahead of them.

Tom Cruise looked just like any other dad -- who's world famous and watched by dozens of paparazzi -- as he took his daughter to gymnastics moments ago in NYC.

Suri Cruise had her head buried in Tom's shoulder as they left the Greenwich Hotel, and walked through a gauntlet of photogs and fans to get to their SUV.

Cameras were also waiting as they arrived a few minutes later at Chelsea Piers for Suri's gymnastics class.

Father and daughter had a full day of QT to catch up at his hotel room. Lots to talk about!

Tom Cruise
has reunited with his daughter for the first time since Katie Holmes filed for divorce last month.

Tom wrapped his latest movie shoot and flew to New York City, where we're told he'll be spending several days with his 6-year-old daughter. This pic (above) shows Tom carrying Suri into The Greenwich Hotel.

Sources tell TMZ ... Tom will have no contact with Katie. Suri will be picked up and taken back with the help of intermediaries.

The picture (below) shows Tom's sister, Cass, bearing gifts as she enters the hotel.

We're told Tom is "sad but not bitter" about the way things have gone down. Nevertheless, it looks like there is radio silence between Tom and Katie.

Tom Cruise

Didn't Pay Katie

Lump Sum in Divorce

7/13/2012 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0711_tom_cruise_secrets_Settlement_article_2Tom Cruise did not pay Katie Holmes a lump sum in his divorce settlement, but he will pay handsomely in the child support department ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Our well-connected sources tell us ... reports that Katie scored $50 million are "ridiculous." We're told she did not get a lump sum of money at all. As we previously reported, Katie signed a prenup which gave her goose eggs by ending the marriage. And, sources connected with Katie have been telling us from day 1 that she was not after his money. As one source put it, "She has her own money."

We do know, however, that Tom is paying "a lot of money" in the form of child support. Tom will be making regular payments for 12 years. Our sources say all tolled, Tom will be paying "more than $10 million" in child support, though no one would be more specific.

Tom's Crazy Couch Stunt

Did NOT Doom His Marriage

EXCLUSIVE

0712_oprah_winfrey_launch_video
It's one of his most famously bizarre moments -- Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah's couch ... on national TV -- but surprisingly, the big O doesn't think the outburst had ANY effect on his marriage.

Oprah was out in DC yesterday, when she was asked if Tom's infamous 2005 couch stunt damaged his relationship with Katie Holmes -- and she burst out laughing ... calling the mere notion "ridiculous."

In case you forgot, Tom had been dating Katie just over a month at the time ... and exploded on Oprah's show, explaining how head-over-heels he was about his new girl.

062912_oprah_cruise_launch
But here's the thing -- the incident is widely cited as evidence that Scientology had fundamentally changed Tom Cruise ... for the worse ... so it's not crazy to wonder if Katie saw red flags from the get go.

You gotta watch the clip -- Oprah's reaction is hilarious ... even Gayle gets involved.

Tom Cruise

Didn't Settle Divorce

To Hide 'Secrets'

7/12/2012 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0711_tom_cruise_secrets_Settlement_articleTom Cruise did NOT settle his divorce with Katie Holmes because he feared she might spill secrets about the actor -- this according to Tom's lawyer.

Attorney Bert Fields scoffs at reports claiming Tom was fearful of what Katie might reveal, telling TMZ, "Tom had nothing to hide and did nothing in the agreement to hide anything.  People are just making this stuff up."

As for the child custody arrangement, it appears Tom will indeed have the "significant" contact with Suri that we reported about last week.  Fields said, "Tom will definitely have a meaningful relationship with his daughter, but I can't talk about specifics of the agreement."

Fields said Tom's primary concern in the settlement was Suri and added Tom was "pleased we could work out how Suri will be treated and dealt with."

And, on the subject of Katie Holmes, Fields said, "I don't think Tom is bitter.  He's sad it came to this," adding, "The media firestorm which is replete with bogus information is unpleasant for him."

Suri Cruise

Triggered Divorce Settlement

EXCLUSIVE

0709_suri_cruise_getty
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise went from zero to nuclear war in an instant when she filed divorce papers, but it was little Suri who became the peacemaker ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... a week ago Thursday, after Katie filed, the hostility between the two was palpable and Suri became a weapon. Katie wanted to strip Tom of all decision-making power in Suri's life, and Tom responded by unleashing the biggest legal guns around to fight her.

We're told what turned everything around was a series of conversations that Suri would be irreparably damaged by parental warfare. It registered big time with both Tom and Katie, and it allowed their lawyers to strike a deal in what could be record time for this type of divorce.

Fact is ... it generally takes celebs in these high-profile divorces a lot longer to realize how bitterness affects small kids, so credit to both.
