Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were once a happy family. However, when the then-couple separated, his relationship with their daughter, Suri, was also cut.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes got married in 2006, but their marriage only lasted for six years. In 2012, the Dawson’s Creek alum surprised her then-husband when she filed for divorce. Following their split, Cruise did not only lose his wife, but also his daughter.
Tom Cruise hasn’t seen Suri for six years
Tom Cruise has allegedly no relationship with daughter, Suri, after he and Katie Holmes divorced.
According to The Things.com, after Holmes filed for divorce in 2012, she moved to New York immediately. She took their daughter, Suri Cruise, with her.
It didn’t take long for the press to uncover that Holmes no longer wanted to be tied to the Church of Scientology. The actress allegedly feared that the members of the church would be stalking her.
The publication also noted that Cruise was noticeably absent from his daughter’s life. In fact, in 2019, tabloids claimed that he had not seen his daughter for six years already.
In 2013, Cruise was spotted with her then 13-year-old daughter. However, according to Samantha Domingo, a former follower of The Scientology, the father and daughter sighting was likely just for appearances.
Domingo explained that Cruise is “not allowed” to have a relationship with her teenage daughter because she’s not a Scientologist.
“Maybe he did it for a photo op,” the Je Suis a Cult Whistleblower: Scientology Kills said. “To make it seem like he was connected so he wouldn’t be criticized.”
Cruise allegedly chose not to see Suri
Another source insisted to Us Weekly that Scientologists can see their children if they wanted to. It was allegedly Cruise’s choice not to visit and see Suri. However, Domingo adds that there was more to that situation.
Meanwhile, the church’s spokeswoman vehemently denied Doming’s allegations. The rep called Doming’s claim “fiction.”
“Everything about your inquiry misrepresents the Church of Scientology, its practices, and the lifestyle of its ministry,” the spokeswoman said.
Suri and Cruise communicate regularly
Amid the claims that Tom Cruise hasn’t seen his daughter for years, an unnamed source told Star a different story.
“Tom and Suri talk a lot. And he’s always trusted that they’d have time to bond in person at some point. He’s thrilled that the time is finally here,” the unnamed source said.
Even if the father and daughter have not seen each other, they reportedly never stopped communicating. They allegedly talk on the phone and text regularly.
“Hearing him talk, you’d never think anything but that they’re close. He raves to his friends and colleagues about how smart she is, and he’s happy to see what a confident and assured young adult she’s turning into,” the source said.
