Suri Cruise is the daughter of Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes‘ 16-year-old daughter Suri has already started applying to colleges with the help of her mother – but the teen’s famous father Tom Cruise won’t have a hand in helping her, because the actor ‘has no part’ in his child’s life.  A source close to Katie, 44, tells exclusively that Suri, who turns 17 next month, ‘has sent some applications out’ and is ‘leaning towards’ studying fashion in New York City – a choice that would make her style-savvy mother Katie very pleased.  ‘Suri is applying to schools all over the place. [Katie] really does want her to stay in New York so they can be close to each other. Katie takes great pride in her but is also extremely overprotective,’ the insider shared, adding that Katie is ‘overwhelmed’ by the idea of her daughter going off to college.
