What is Connor Cruise's net worth? Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's adopted son is now a food vlogger on Instagram
Connor Cruise, the adopted son of actors Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, has launched a new food vlog channel on Instagram to show off his culinary skills. Called 'Connor's Meat Shack,' the channel will see the 26-year-old explore barbecue cooking, something of a passion for him.
The channel’s bio reads: “Wagyu. Chicken. Briskets. Bourbon. Treagers. Flat Tops..and charcoal.” Connor announced it on Wednesday, March 24, when he took to his main Instagram account and wrote, “After many friends telling me I have finally decided to start a food IG @connorsmeatshack with my bestie @kimj526. Give it a follow if you like backyard steaks, bourbon, chicken, or really whatever we are feeling like that day.”
The Instagram account’s first post was about "Smashburgers", which he cooked on a grill plate using a meat press. Following that, he shared videos of cooking rotisserie chicken shawarma, barbecue ribeye steak, Wagyu brisket, and more.
Connor lives in Florida, and briefly followed in his adoptive parents’ footsteps and starred in two films, 2008's ‘Seven Pounds’ and 2012's ‘Red Dawn’. But he has since busied himself in finding out what he is truly passionate about -- one of which is evidently barbecue. The other, as far as his Instagram is concerned, is definitely fishing.
He is also a DJ. Despite being the son of two A-list Hollywood stars, Connor has mostly remained a private person, avoiding the limelight, and rarely attracting media attention even when his high-profile parents divorced.
What is Connor Cruise’s net worth?
Connor was born in Florida in January 1995. Kidman and Tom adopted Connor and Bella during their ten-year marriage. The Hollywood couple split in 2001. As per CelebrityNetWorth.com, Connor has a net worth of $5 million dollars.
Reportedly, Kidman and Connor are not very close anymore. This is reportedly because he, like his father, was part of the Church of Scientology. In Leah Remini’s Scientology memoir, ‘Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology’, the ex-Scientologist and former close friend of Cruise recounted how she was riding in a car with Isabella and Connor after Cruise’s 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes and asked the children if they’d seen their mom recently.
According to Remini, Isabella replied, “Our mom is a f***ing SP” -- Scientology-speak for “suppressive person,” or someone who does not support Scientology and who the church demands followers cut all ties with.
After Kidman’s split with Cruise, Isabella and Connor lived with Cruise in LA. In 2010, Kidman said in an interview: “They live with Tom, which was their choice. I’d love them to live with us, but what can you do?”
But in 2018, she spoke about the two in an Australian magazine interview, "They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it's my job to love them. And I am an example of that tolerance and that's what I believe -- that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I'm open here."
Tom Cruise is now also a father to Suri Cruise, 14, with his now ex-wife Katie Holmes, while Kidman and her husband Keith Urban are parents to Sunday Rose, 12, and Faith Margaret, 10.
