Poor Suri Cruise. Not only has the adorable little girl not seen her father, Tom Cruise, in the last three years — but they’ve barely communicated at all during that time! Get the latest on their strained relationship here.
“Tom hasn’t seen or even called Suri in about three years,” an insider tells Us Weekly, with another source adding, “Tom has no relationship with Suri.” The 54-year-old hasn’t been photographed with his daughter since 2012, when she was just six years old, and the duo took a trip to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park in Florida. Suri has been living with her mom, Katie Holmes, since the actress divorced Tom in 2012.
The ladies have reportedly been “excommunicated” from Tom’s life because of his belief in Scientology, according to the mag. However, the Church of Scientology issued a statement explaining that, “Scientologists respect the faith of others, associate with and befriend members of every religion. Scientologists do not cut ties with non-Scientologist friends or family members because they have chosen another religion.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, celebrities are able to “break all the rules” when it comes to Scientology, according to expert and author Tony Ortega. So, even if there is some sort of law that prohibits Tom from seeing his little girl, he should be able to get around it.
Despite spending no time with her dad in the last three years, Suri really does seem to be a happy kid overall — luckily, Katie has been a doting mother throughout this difficult time. Still, the 10-year-old needs a relationship with her father, so hopefully they’re able to figure some way to work something out…
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Tom and Suri don’t have a relationship? Do you think he’ll ever spend more time with his daughter?
