Tom Cruise is one of the world’s biggest movie stars, but ever since his divorce from Katie Holmes back in 2012, his relationship with his daughter Suri has been reportedly strained.
So much so, that a source has revealed the Rain Man actor ‘has no part’ in the sixteen-year-old’s life.
Cruise is a celebrity who has always had an element of mystery…
His disingenuous persona in interviews alongside the oddly secretive nature of his private life has led many to believe that all is not what it seems with the celebrated actor.
There’s been a fair amount of speculation about his private life since he rose to fame. So much so, in fact, that it’s turned into something of a full-blown conspiracy theory.
Many speculate that a lot of the weirdness in his life can be attributed to his religious beliefs, with him being a member of the Church of Scientology, but that’s a whole other story.
Despite this, throughout his career, Cruise has been in some of the highest-grossing movies ever, which is the central source of his income.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Cruise’s breakthrough role in Risky Business (1983) earned him $75,000.
And that was only the very start, as Cruise later earned a whopping $2 million for his role in the 1986 movie Top Gun, the outlet reports, which was the beginning of his amazing career.
Cruise reportedly made $70 million for the first Mission Impossible movie and $75 million for Mission Impossible 3, mostly thanks to producer credits.
But his most profitable movie in the franchise was Mission Impossible 2, where he apparently earned $100 million thanks to backend deals and earned the same for 2005’s War of the Worlds.
With his latest movie, Top Gun: Maverick bringing in over $100 million, there’s no wonder Forbes has listed Cruise as one of the richest actors in the world.
And so, it makes sense that despite his daughter’s estrangement, the actor still pays for her education, per The Daily Mail.
A source revealed to the outlet that: “Suri is applying to schools all over the place. [Katie] really does want her to stay in New York so they can be close to each other. Katie takes great pride in her but is also extremely overprotective.”
They also confirmed that Cruise ‘has no part’ in his daughter’s life since 2013, one year after his divorce from Holmes. However, the insider also shared that the sixty-year-old actor will still pay for Suri’s college tuition, per his and Holmes’ secretive divorce agreement.
“Tom has always maintained his responsibilities when it comes to financial obligations to Katie and Suri,” the source confirmed.
They further elaborated on Suri’s life with her mother: “Being raised by a single mom in New York has made Suri who she is. Katie has always put Suri first and Suri loves her mom more than anything.”
“She is a smart girl, and she is turning into a very intelligent mature woman. She has a very close group of loyal friends, and she knows exactly where she comes from,” they added.
At the time of her parents’ split, it was widely reported that it was due to Holmes having concerns over raising their daughter as a Scientologist. This allegedly caused a huge clash between Cruise and Holmes, and hence is likely one of the causes of the estrangement.
