Tom Cruise Agreed To Pay $400,000 To Ex-wife Katie Holmes Every Month And Not Seeing His Daughter Suri For Over 10 Years

For numerous years, Tom Cruise has occupied a prominent position within the Church of Scientology, and his two eldest children have also become engaged members. However, recent reports indicate that Cruise has decided to distance himself from the church, relinquishing its influence over his life after being associated with it for an extended period.

According to The Mirror, Tom Cruise has predominantly stationed himself in the UK over the past three years for the purpose of filming his latest cinematic ventures. While snapshots of him have surfaced in locales like Birmingham and Cotswolds, it’s been noted that he’s ceased his visits to the UK Scientology headquarters. Furthermore, he has not been captured in imagery at the Church of Scientology establishment situated in central London.

Tom Cruise Isn’t Close To Suri Because Of Scientology

Tom Cruise has yet to provide any response to these speculations, but the revelations are jarring, especially when one considers the profound role the Church has played in his private affairs. It’s purported that Scientology exerted an influence on his divorces from Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, and strong speculation suggests it also contributed to his apparent absence from the life of his and Katie Holmes’ 17-year-old daughter, Suri.

In 2012, Katie Holmes initiated divorce proceedings with Tom Cruise, terminating their 7-year marital union, and remarkably, the process concluded in a mere few weeks. Katie secured a substantial settlement, amounting to $400,000 monthly until their daughter Suri reaches the age of 18. Equally significant was her attainment of sole custody over their child. Various accounts asserted that the divorce was driven by Katie Holmes’ determination to liberate her family from the sway of Scientology. Shortly after the separation, she enrolled Suri in a Catholic school.

By consenting to grant Katie complete custody, it seems Tom simultaneously conceded to refrain from engaging with Suri while she remains a minor, possibly stemming from the contentious Scientology-related discord between him and Katie. Yet, as news emerges of Tom disassociating from the Church, there might be a chance for him to mend ties with Suri, despite it reportedly having been a decade since their last interaction.

Tom Cruise’s Oldest Daughter Is Member Of The Church

Even as Cruise’s departure from Scientology gains attention, his two older children continue to maintain strong ties with the faith. In 2019, his daughter Isabella disclosed her elevation to the role of an auditor – the individual tasked with probing fellow Scientologists about their personal experiences. In a promotional video, she expressed that the religion played a pivotal role in rescuing her life.

After his split from their mother, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise’s eldest children resided with him, partly due to their shared adherence to Scientology. However, if Cruise indeed chooses to distance himself from the contentious belief system, it might introduce a strain in their relationship. Conversely, such a decision could potentially lead to ameliorated ties between him and Suri.
