Tom Cruise Might Be Calling It Quits With Scientology His 9-year-old daughter, Suri, is becoming a problem for the church. By Sean Fitz-Gerald Shares Getty Tom Cruise, the unofficial public face of Scientology, might soon be cutting ties with the organization so he can spend more time with his daughter, according to reports. Sources at Star claim the actor's 9-year-old daughter, Suri, is close to earning the title of "suppressive person," essentially a pariah who shouldn't be contacted, in the eyes of other influential Scientologists. Problems have arisen because Cruise hasn't been raising Suri as a Scientologist, and this means that his relationship with his daughter is limited—and will be increasingly so as she continues to mature outside the church. Cruise reportedly had a poignant moment of clarity after a recent phone call with her. "She was going on and on about her ballet class and how much she loves it. That's when Tom realized he's never seen her perform ballet and he started to tear up," a source told Star. "It hit him that she's growing up before his eyes and he's not there to witness most of it. They talk on the phone and video chat, but it's not the same." According to reports, it's looking like Cruise is finally going to put his daughter (who he allegedly hasn't seen for two years) before the church because he's already missed birthdays, school events, and other special moments and milestones. "Suri is not a baby anymore; she is fully aware that her father isn't around much," a Cruise insider told Star. "When she speaks to him on the phone, it's becoming more and more like she's talking to a stranger." Cruise was recently one of the focal points of a scathing documentary about Scientology, Going Clear. The film is littered with Cruise (and other celeb) revelations that have the potential to further discredit the already-contentious church. Esquire.com contributor Logan Hill wrote on the subject earlier this year: Relying on interviews with formerly high-ranking group officials, the documentary makes a strong argument in support of the idea that celebrities (like other members) could be fearing the release of some of the massive personal files of information on the celebrities, culled from surveillance and confessional-style "auditing" sessions, in which members are encouraged to recapitulate their most guilty or shameful secrets. Former associates say that [David] Miscavige himself would often eavesdrop on Cruise and Travolta's sessions and then review the transcripts afterward. And the film explains how those low-paid church members were often ordered to perform absurd celebrity-pampering tasks, like pimping out Tom Cruise's fleet of cars, in the name of faith. In the film's biggest bombshell, former Sea Org (a wing of Scientology) member and Tom Cruise "auditor" Mark "Marty" Rathbun talks about how David Miscavige worked to break up Cruise's marriage to Nicole Kidman, believing her psychologist father to be a "Potential Trouble Source," and, eventually, Kidman herself to be a S.P., or "Suppressive Person." Rathbun alleges that Cruise idly suggested tapping Kidman's phones and then Miscavige not only gave the orders to tap Kidman's phones, but personally obsessed over the audio tapes, looking for ways to isolate her from Cruise—and her children. As Redbook points out: Just as Scientology was not supportive of Cruise's relationship with Kidman, it also wasn't keen on the actor's marriage with Katie Holmes. The two allegedly split because of religious disagreements that hinged on Cruise's church and his daughter's participation.
