It looks like Tom Cruise is going to extreme lengths to avoid his youngest child, 11-year-old Suri Cruise. The 55-year-old has gone more than four years without seeing his youngest child, and now, a report claims that he doesn’t even want to see her on the Internet.
A former friend of Tom’s named Maryann Carter — who has stayed friendly with Tom since he dated her bestie back in high school — runs a Facebook fan page dedicated to the Jerry Maguire star. She made a post alleging that he asked that all pictures of his daughter with Katie Holmes be kept off the small fan page.
“I am going to ask that no one post anything with Suri in the future. She is no longer a part of his life! If you do [post], I will erase,” she posted. When someone asked if old pictures with Tom were still allowed, she replied, “No photos! His request.”
Tom has never given a reason as to why he no longer sees his youngest child, but most fans believe it’s because of her mother’s decision to abandon the Church of Scientology. In doing so, both Katie and Suri became “suppressive people,” aka people who get in the way of Tom’s “spiritual progress.”
While some may believe that “scheduling conflicts” are to blame for their estrangement, it would appear that Tom has had ample oportunity to reconnect with his daughter — such as when he was only miles from her and still made the baffling decision not to visit her. Earlier this year, while promoting his flick The Mummy, he gave a rare quote about the daughter he barely knows. When asked if she is interested in following in both her parents’ footsteps to become an actor, he replied, “You never know, you never know!”
Well, that isn’t exactly true, Tom! You may know… If you made an effort to see your child and be part of her life, rather than completely blocking her out — even on social media!
