Tom Cruise, one of the world’s biggest stars and infamous Scientologist, hasn’t seen his daughter Suri in 3 years, and according to some reports, he isn’t even trying.
According to a report in Fox News on Wednesday, the Mission Impossible star last saw his daughter when she was 7. She is now 10 years old, living with her mother Katie Holmes in New York while Cruise lives across the country in Los Angeles.
“If he wanted to see her, he could see her,” one source told New York Post in June. “Even people in prison have a right to see their children.”
Scientology, the cult-like religion Cruise infamously associates himself with, has been blamed for the growing distance between him and Suri. It was also the primary reason for his separation from Katie Holmes, to whom he was married from 2006-2012.
The Church forbids any connection to ‘non-believers’, which Suri and her mother would qualify as. A source cited in the New York Post story says that Holmes could be categorised as a SP (suppressive person) in Scientology terms, and Suri as a PTS (potential trouble source).
But Fox News suggests Suri isn’t too affected by this. “She’s thriving. She’s got lots of friends and a nice, normal life. This is his loss, his issue, his problem,” said a source in the Fox report. “He must be really brainwashed.”
Cruise was recently heavily featured in the tell-all Scientology documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief which went into great depth about the star’s involvement with the group.
