As if little Suri Cruise hasn’t had it bad enough in recent weeks, what with her parents’ very public breakup, a Monday evening collision with a garbage truck in New York City leaves the 6-year-old rattled.
Every aspect of Suri Cruise’s young life has been documented — down to the tree house she plays in and, now, the times she chats with dad, Tom Cruise, following the actor’s very public split with wife of six years, Katie Holmes.
So it should come as no surprise that the paps were there when a garbage truck smashed into a limo reportedly carrying Suri and Katie on Monday evening.
Pacific Coast News and X17Online, by way of the Daily Mail, claim the accident happened shortly after the pair were picked up at Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers, where Suri takes gymnastics.
Reports differ somewhat, with either the dump truck turning right into the mother and daughter’s Mercedes-Benz limo, or backing into their vehicle.
“Suri was crying in the car,” a source told People.
Luckily, that appears to be the extent of the damage. No outlets were reporting that either mom or daughter were injured.
Katie already had plenty of sense knocked into her to leave Tom Cruise, if even only some of the Scientology-related stories are true.
So we don’t quite know what’s going on with all the collisions as of late, because this marks the second time in less than a week that cars carrying Holmes and her daughter have been hit.
People reports last Friday a paparazzi’s car rammed into their vehicle as the pair was leaving an FAO Schwartz toy store.
Overzealousness on the part of the paps is nothing new for Suri. But it’s at a fever-pitch now that famous mom and dad have called it quits.
