It’s been 1,000 days — more than two-and-a-half years — since Tom Cruise last saw his daughter, Suri in person. And in addition to no physical contact, the actor hasn’t spoken to her by phone, a source exclusively tells In Touch.
“They used to Skype and text, but that trailed off drastically,” says a second source. “He uses his film commitments as an excuse, but the truth is that doesn’t hold much weight with Suri anymore.”
The reason, says an insider, is Scientology’s “disconnection” policy. The controversial religion discourages its members from associating with those who have left the church, as Katie Holmes, 37, did when she split from Tom, 53, in 2012, taking Suri, now 10, with her.
“Tom eats, breathes and sleeps Scientology,” the insider states. “He’s disconnected from Katie, and then de facto from Suri, because of her connection to Katie. He hasn’t seen her since she was 7.”
