Suri Cruise is far away from the courtroom drama involving her father, Tom, who is suing a tabloid over their cover story that claimed he "abandoned" her.

Suri and her mom, Katie Holmes, took a trip Thursday to the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, South Africa, where Holmes is filming the movie The Giver.

The look-alike mother-daughter team appeared unfettered by the lawsuit thousands of miles away while eating their lunch alfresco. Suri, 7½, playfully offered some of her fish-and-chips to a statue of the former SA President, F.W. de Klerk.

Back in the U.S., Tom's explanation as to why he didn't see Suri in person for more than 100 days had been made public. In his deposition from Sept. 9, he gave details about his grueling work schedule, which he claimed did not permit an in-person visit, though he spoke with his daughter on the phone nearly every night.

"If she had asked me to be there, I would have been there," he said. "I would have worked it out any way I could."
