Suri 'coping' with parents' split

Suri Cruise is "adjusting well" following her parents' split.

The six-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is now living in New York with her mother following the actress filing for divorce last month, and insiders say the couple are keeping their problems away from the little girl in order to make the separation as easy as possible for her.

A source said: "Both Katie and Tom have really gone out of their way to make sure the transition between both households is as easy and normal as possible for Suri.

"Tom and Katie aren't fighting with each other because they haven't seen each other and so Suri has been protected from any uncomfortable situations. And both have agreed to not say anything derogatory about the other."

Insiders believe that Suri is adjusting so well as she was used to Tom being away for long periods of time with his work before he and Katie split.

The source added to RadarOnline.com: "Suri is used to her dad being away filming and not spending every single day with him. She loves the daddy/daughter time they get together and loves the trips so this isn't a new thing for her. She always spent time with him either on set or at home and even on vacation so she's really adjusted well."

And though Katie - who allegedly filed for divorce because she didn't want Suri subjected to a Scientology upbringing - has begun imposing more rules and restrictions on her daughter, the youngster is enjoying having some responsibilities.

The source said: "Suri likes doing the little things that Katie asks her to do, she has fun and Katie isn't making her feel like she's being punished at all."
