Actors Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise married in 1990 and adopted two children - Connor, now 24, and Isabella, now 26. The pair split in 2001 and Tom kept custody of the children with reports at the time stating both Connor and Isabella were devout Scientologists and elected to stay with their dad. Nicole is said to have blamed the religion for ruining her marriage and relationship with her two children. Now it seems the split within the family has grown deeper as she has reportedly been banned from attending her son's wedding.
Why is Tom Cruise banning Nicole Kidman from son's wedding?
A source told RadarOnline Tom had "banned ex-wife Nicole Kidman from their 24-year-old son's wedding."The source said: "Tom is behind this and what he wants is as good as law. Tom made the call and Connor followed."The insider went on to say Connor "worships the ground his father walks on" so would not dare of going against the 56-year-old film star.
The insider reportedly told Radar: "First, Tom would never even consider inviting Nicole to Connor's wedding because she's considered a 'suppressive person' by the church — and, second, he doesn't want her there."Nicole did not attend daughter Isabella's wedding to husband Max Parker in 2015.The actress has previously sparked controversy when in January 2018 she thanked her two children with husband Keith Urban, 10-year-old Sunday and eight-year-old Faith, after winning a Golden Globe.The award was for her performance in Big Little Lies - but the star seemingly snubbed her two adopted children in her acceptance speech.
However, in an interview with Who magazine in 2018, Nicole implied she does not have a rift with Isabella - who earlier this week claimed Scientology saved her life - and Connor.She told the publication at the time: "I'm very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships."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."Connor's soon-to-be wife is reportedly dubbed the "Scientology Princess" with both her and her family devout followers of the religion.Sources have claimed Tom "adores" his future daughter-in-law and is happy his son has chosen to marry a fellow Scientologist.
