7:36 am
noticeably absent. wednesday his lawyer lashed out at a tabloid report that cruise was abandoning suri, telling the "los angeles times" that the quote is a "disgusting, vicious lie." the attorney said cruise couldn't visit sooner because of his production schedule adding "he spoke to suri every day, tom really loves suri, the last thing he would do is abandon her." now he's been spotted several times currying suri into his hotel. cruise is also on the cover of "people" magazine reading "tom's shattered world." >> they can't control the magazine headlines but there is an effort going on on both sides to control what the media is saying about the divorce. >> reporter: cruise and holmes have reportedly not seen each other during his visit and wednesday holmes was seen going
