Tom Cruise has not been seen with his daughter Suri Cruise except for one time (probably) and people speculate that the answer might lie in his religion. Tom Cruise practices Scientology and is a loyal Scientologist. Scientology is a religious body that in the simplest form is the blend of Science & Spirituality. Instead of believing in the concept of hell, heaven, and the afterlife, Scientology believes in focusing on the spirit.
Tom Cruise And Scientology
Tom Cruise involved in Scientology because of her first wife Mimi Rogers in the 1980s. Ever since then, he has been devoted to the Church of Scientology. He has reportedly even purchased a penthouse near Clearwater, Fla. That also happens to be quite near to the organization’s headquarters. Rumor has it that his devotion to his religion has cost him his marriages.
The Mission Impossible actor and Nicole Kidman never discussed the reason behind their divorce but many people believe it was because of Tom’s religious beliefs. Kidman never accepted Scientology as her religion and that made her ‘Suppressive Person’ or ‘SP’. Their adopted children Isabella and Connor lived with their father and became Scientologists themselves. Though, that did not come true for his daughter Suri Cruise.
Katie Holmes Wants To Protect Suri Cruise From Scientology
If we were to believe the rumors, it was the Church of Scientology that arranged Tom’s marriage with Katie Holmes. Holmes, just like Kidman, never converted to Scientology and filed for divorce. The divorce was quite sudden and came as a surprise for all. According to the sources, she took this step to protect her child Suri Cruise from Scientology and its influence. The Church, obviously unhappy with the decision, asked Tom to stay away from Suri as she is an SP. Tom being loyal to Scientology, listened and agreed.
Did Tom Cruise Really Abandon Suri Cruise?
Tom Cruise has gotten into controversy many times due to his support for Scientology. He was accused of abandoning his daughter, Suri Cruise. Responding to which, he sued a media house for such allegations. For a long time, he denied any connection of Scientology with his divorce. During his deposition, he got extremely agitated with the insinuation that his religion has anything to do with his failed marriage. He found the assumption that Holmes wanted to protect Suri from Scientology quite offensive. But in the end, he accepted that the said reason was one of the assertions.
According to sources, Tom lost all touch with his daughter Suri Cruise when she was seven. He could have easily stayed a part of her life and watched her grow closely if he wanted to. But rather, he decided to maintain his distance. People do not really remember when the last time Tom Cruise was seen with Suri Cruise was. Honestly, the last photo of the father-daughter duo was taken in 2013. Although a lot of people like to believe that the picture was photo-op and was taken for the sake of media. He wanted to avoid a bad image in the media.
Suri Cruise And Her Independent Life
Suri Cruise is now 14 and has turned out to be a stunning teenager. Her looks will definitely remind you of her parents. Suri has been raised quite protectively and aloof from her father. She recently celebrated her 14th birthday in April. She can be spotted with her mother Holmes at times candidly.
