Holmes, 33, filed for divorce in New York on Friday (June 29), and is actively seeking sole custody of the couple's 6-year-old daughter Suri.
Sources tell TMZ that Cruise was in New York City during the week of June 10 to film scenes for an upcoming movie, but opted to stay at the Greenwich Hotel rather than the Manhattan apartment he shares with Holmes.
The Mission: Impossible star allegedly received two unplanned visits from Holmes and Suri for only a few hours.
Friends close to the couple go on to say that Holmes was splitting her time between the couple's apartment and a new apartment that she recently bought.
Cruise, who has been married twice before, was reportedly shocked by the divorce filing, and allegedly plans to fight for shared custody of the pair's daughter.
