Tom and Suri Cruise haven’t been seen in public together since a visit to Disneyland in 2012, as reported by Yahoo. According to Us Weekly, the “Mission: Impossible” leading man has the right to see his daughter up to ten days a month, but chooses not to, allegedly because of Holmes and Suri’s distance from the Church of Scientology. According to Huff Post, Tom admitted that post-divorce, Holmes and Suri were no longer practicing Scientologists.
In a deposition with Bauer Media, Cruise was asked whether he and the church considered Holmes a “Suppressive Person,” or someone who tries to keep others down. “That is a distortion and a simplification of the matter. I don’t want to just give an oversimplification of religious doctrine,” Cruise said. According to Scientology expert Rick Ross, Church followers are taught to avoid Suppressive Persons (SPs) and “Potential Trouble Sources,” (PTS). “Tom Cruise would not want to come in contact with an SP. And if he views his daughter as a PTS, which is very likely, he would not be that excited about dealing with her either,” Ross told Hollywood Life.
In June 2014, InTouch reported that Cruise had not seen or spoken to his daughter in 1,000 days. In April 2019, an insider told Hollywood Life that Tom “still loves” Suri and that “Tom never intended to be estranged from his daughter,” and “looks forward to repairing the relationship one day.”
