Tom Cruise’s love for Scientology has driven more than a wife away from him, but unfortunately for his second wife Nicole Kidman, this also meant leaving her two children behind. In fact, she had to forget all about Bella and Conor Cruise after the couple's divorce in 2001 as the children chose Scientology and their father over her. According to Radar Online, Nicole is now working on having them back in her life.  

The utter absence of her older children in her life was especially evident in her acceptance speech during the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, where she won in the category of Best Actress in a TV movie of limited series for her role in ‘Big Little Lies.’ 

“I have two little girls, Sunday and Faith, and my darling Keith, who I ask to help me pursue this artistic path, and they have to sacrifice so much for it,” she had said, finishing big with, "So this is yours. I want my little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, ‘Every time my mama didn’t put me to bed, it is because of this. I got something." 

She thanked everyone involved in the show, her husband Keith Urban and the two children she shares with him - Sunday, 10, and Faith, 7. Noticeably absent from her speech? Bella and Conor, the two children she adopted with Cruise. Post this there were many reports about the “heartbreaking reason” she could not mention them or be in their lives, which is basically Scientology.

However, it turns out, she does want to have a relationship with them. According to Radar Online, Sunday and Faith have been asking why they do not have a relationship with their older siblings and Kidman wants to rectify this. “Nicole is trying to organize a big family get-together,” a source told reportedly told Radar. “She feels the need for some kind of connection between her four children.” 

The source further added, “As Sunday and Faith get older, Nicole sees that it’s important for them to have a chance to bond with their big brother and sister.” The first steps towards this have already been taken with Bella and Kidman tentatively rekindling their relationship. The 25-year-old recently kicked off her own T-shirt brand, which she christened BKC — for Bella Kidman Cruise. Having already accepted her mother’s last name as part of her own name, it is only a matter of time before they bury whatever differences they had in the past.

“Bella and Nicole have really grown closer over the past few months. They’re both focusing on moving forward with their relationship,” a family friend reportedly told the website. This marks a huge step in their relationship, considering Bella once told former Scientologist Leah Remini that she would never see her mother if she had a choice.  

Remini, who is now a strong criticizer of the Church of Scientology, had attended Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes, where she met both Bella and Conor. She had reportedly asked them, "How's your mom? Do you see her a lot?", to which the older sister shot back, "Not if I have a choice. Our mom is a f*****g SP." SP is the abbreviation for Suppressive Person, which is a term coined by L. Ron Hubbard, former sci-fi writer turned Scientology founder in the early 1950s. It is a term used to describe "antisocial personalities." 

Hopefully, Kidman will be able to mend her relationship with Conor as well.
