Is Tom Cruise leaving Scientology to be with daughter Suri? Reports say yes!
Tom Cruise seems to have made a big decision of leaving Scientology behind in order to rekindle his relationship with daughter Suri.
Tom Cruise has always been vocal about his relationship with the Church of Scientology since the time he became part of it in 1990. At the same time, he has also been an advocate of the religion through the years, but according to a source, who spoke to Star, Tom is ready to give it all in order to mend his relationship with daughter Suri Cruise.
It has been nearly five years since the time Tom has had any contact with his 11-year-old daughter and looks like the actor cannot take it anymore. "He has reached the breaking point, and something has to give," a source told Star. However, rekindling the relationship is not coming cheap for Tom as he will have to walk out of the religion which he truly believes in.
"If he wants her back, he’ll have to walk away from the church, which has been a huge part of his life, to say the least," the source added. "Leaving Scientology would be the toughest decision he’ll ever have to make!" The source also adds that it is not so easy for Tom to walk of the system as they seem to get back at people who decide to leave abruptly. "If Scientology declared open season on Tom, they could bury him, since they’ve probably got all sorts of dirt on him from his audit sessions," the source said.
"It’s an unspoken threat, but Tom has to be aware that the church would do everything in its power to keep him from leaving," the source added. However, it seems like the Mission Impossible actor may have found a way out of the deal by not losing a lot.
The source believes that Tom may try to cut a deal "where he would be left in peace as long as he doesn’t speak out against Scientology. That way, both sides win." This news comes days after a source close to Katie Holmes told OK! that Suri has missed having her father around. "She’s at an age where she needs her father’s love," the source said.
"Any child in her position would naturally begin to question why her father won’t see her," the source added. Even the last time that Tom and Suri were publicly spotted together was in 2012 when he took her to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Previously, there were many reports of how Tom had been a devotee of Scientology for a long time and in doing so, he was pushing his personal life aside.
“I guess Tom would rather isolate himself from his flesh and blood than risk upsetting Scientology,” OK! reported adding that, “His church and his career are the priorities now.” Tom shares Suri with his ex-wife, Katie Holmes. The couple tied the knot in 2006 and six years after their marriage they welcomed Suri.
However, the couple decided to split soon after. According to Daily Mail, Katie Holmes decided to split from Tom Cruise as she feared that she would also be losing her daughter to Scientology, just like Nicole Kidman did. Even their marriage came crumbling down when church members moved into their Los Angeles home so they could cater to Tom.
Katie reportedly feared that if in future Suri did decide to follow Scientology, one day she might make the decision of disconnecting herself from Katie. However, looking at Tom's recent decision of leaving Scientology behind to reconnect with his daughter, seems like the actor is rethinking his decisions in life. One could also say that he might be a prioritizing certain aspect of his life.
