Before North West and Blue Ivy Carter, there was Suri Cruise, the daughter of Tom Cruise and his then wife, Katie Holmes.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' divorce
Paparazzi cameras kept up with Holmes and Cruise, and their marriage was followed closely. With the birth of their daughter, fans of the Hollywood couple were given regular updates about each public sighting.
In fact, their love story seemed magical, until it wasn’t. Katie Holmes filed for divorce in 2012, asking primarily that she be granted sole custody of their daughter, with visitation rights given to Cruise.
She reportedly feared that her daughter would be indoctrinated into Cruise's Scientology believes.
Suri was 6 when her parents went their separate ways, and the last time she was photographed with her famous father was in 2013.
Since then, the father and daughter have not being seen together publicly. It is not clear whether they have met up away from the gaze of the media.
However, it has been said that Cruise’s reason for keeping his distance from Katie Holmes and, by extension, Suri is religious. Life and Style Magazine claims that the actor’s Church of Scientology labelled his ex-wife a suppressive person. This is supposed to mean that she was standing in the way of her spiritual progress and needed to be kept at a distance.
It is not clear how this label affected Cruise’s decision to stay away from his daughter. The dad of 3 is known to have a great relationship with his two children, 25-year-old Isabella and 23-year-old Connor. Both children, adopted by his ex-wife Nicole Kidman, are said to be committed scientologists.
It is hoped that Cruise will find a way to reach out to his daughter, particularly now that she is growing older and their paths are moving in different directions.
