Worse part of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise's divorce

However, there is a side of Kidman’s past that seems to have more or less been obliterated - her adopted children Connor and Isabella. Following her divorce and consequent withdrawal from the Church of Scientology, Kidman became estranged from her children, so much so they ceased all communication.

The strain on their relationship was obvious at the Golden Globes. Kidman, when accepting her award for Outstanding Lead Actress in Big Little Lies, thanked everyone who had contributed to her success, including her daughters, Sunday Rose, and Faith Margaret. And she did not even once mention Connor and Isabella.

Nicole became estranged from her children

Both children are now Scientologists like their dad and have been told to avoid Kidman at all costs. Sydney Morning Herald recorded actress Leah Remini talking about the kids.

When she asked the children, "How's your mom? Do you see her a lot?" Isabella said:

"Not if I have a choice. Our mom is an SP.

According to the Scientology doctrine, SP is a "suppressive person". Members of the church are encouraged to disconnect themselves from people who have been given this label.

Possible reconciliation

If there was anything that hurt Kidman after her separation, it was not being able to see her children again. She also missed out on seeing them grow and being a mother. But there may be hope yet for a rekindling in the future.

Nicole is reported to have met her daughter Isabella and her son-in-law in 2016, and it seems like the pair may be forging a relationship after all.

With Isabella and Connor still being staunch members of the Church of Scientology, there is no saying if this will be another happily-ever-after story for Kidman and her children.

In the time being, she seems pretty happy with her new family, and we are hoping she stays that way.
