It is hardly a secret that Tom Cruise is brainwashed by Scientology. But some were actually surprised to hear that Tom has refused to see his daughter because of his devotion to "the religion."
The claim surfaced last week when In Touch Magazine reported that the actor has not seen Suri in two years.
Whether that's true or not, according to media outlets, Tom and his daughter Suri have finally reunited.
Apparently, Tom was able to stop loving himself long enough to actually love his daughter.
The 52-year-old Scientologist reportedly visited with his daughter for a cherished but short three hour visit on July 27.
While in New York City for the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, he took the chance to see 9-year-old Suri. And sources claim it was an “emotional” moment for both Tom and Suri.
According to Ok! Magazine, Tom set up the reunion, meeting Suri at an apartment near Central Park that belongs to someone in his management team.
He likely chose this location because going to his Katie Holme’s place would not only be weird, but would start a media and paparazzi frenzy.
Their day included a game of hide-and-seek and stories. Tom even reportedly gave Suri a huge teddy bear.
A source said, “Suri was so excited. “It was emotional for both of them. [Tom] was overcome seeing Suri again. He knows he could miss seeing her grow up if he’s not careful.”
Many believe that Tom has kept his distance from Suri because of Katie’s negative stance about Scientology. Could he be putting his weird Scientology days behind him to make more time for his daughter???
Tom has been so deeply devoted to Scientology that it is hard to believe he would leave the church.
However, Tom is reportedly looking for an apartment to buy in New York City. And with Katie’s support, he would like to start spending more time with Suri.
Maybe this is the first step to leaving “the church.”
Though they haven’t seen each other in a long time, Tom and Suri have often talked on the phone and video chatted.
It was during a phone call when Suri was telling Tom about her ballet class that Tom had a change of heart. He had never seen her dance, and he decided it is time to rebuild a connection with his child.
