Suri Cruise may have to celebrate her birthday without her dad! It has reportedly been years since Tom Cruise has seen his daughter, but will he finally make an effort to see Suri for her double-digit b-day?
Turning 10 is a huge deal in the kid world, but not if you can’t celebrate it with those you love. As Suri Cruise hits double digits on April 18, there’s no doubt that her momma, Katie Holmes, 37, will be there for her big day — Tom Cruise, 53, on the other hand, is sadly a giant question mark. No child should be upset on their birthday, but that could just be what happens for poor Suri!
Back in November, it was reported that Tom had not seen Suri for 800 days, which would mean he had at least missed her last two birthdays. Even though her 10th birthday is perhaps Suri’s most monumental one yet, nothing is signaling that Tom’s streak of absence will be broken. Despite an April 6 report that Tom is planning a major effort to spend more time with Suri, Tom has yet to make any strides with his promise. Now that Suri’s birthday has arrived, it would be the perfect time to make that effort…but so far, Tom hasn’t done anything!
In fact, an insider revealed to InTouch magazine that Tom has already broken the news to Suri that he can’t be at her birthday celebration, giving his “usual excuse” to his little 10-year-old. According to the source, Tom is “in the middle of filming The Mummy and couldn’t tear himself away,” but c’mon — can’t he take one day to spend some time with his daughter?
With or without a movie in the works, though, it seems Tom isn’t exactly the best at taking advantage of opportunities to see Suri. Tom has had “plenty of chances to see Suri in the past,” the insider added, which totally breaks Katie’s heart for Suri. We can only imagine how little Suri feels herself!
While it seems like Tom doesn’t really care about Suri, he apparently hates that he’s not around to watch her grow up. But even with plans to change things between himself and his daughter, Tom wants to change Suri’s custody arrangement before anything happens. And with his religion of Scientology also in the way (Suri and Katie are no longer part of the church, making time with Suri off-limits) it doesn’t really sound like Suri can count on Tom to be there for her b-day. We’re crossing our fingers that Tom surprises us by showing up to Suri’s b-day, though — because turning 10 is too special for Suri not to be happy!
