Hollywood has always been a whirlwind of controversy, speculation, and sensational stories. The latest buzz making waves, as reported by the Mirror, is that iconic actor Tom Cruise is contemplating leaving the Church of Scientology, a faith he has staunchly followed for over three decades.

The purported reason? His daughter, Suri Cruise.

Rekindling Father-Daughter Bonds

Ever since his divorce with Katie Holmes in 2012, Tom Cruise's relationship with his youngest child, Suri, has been a subject of great curiosity and speculation.

Yahoo mentions that many believe the Church of Scientology to be the wedge driving father and daughter apart. In a tumultuous divorce, Holmes was granted full custody of Suri, along with a staggering $400,000 monthly in child support until Suri's 18th birthday.

Notably, it has been about a decade since Cruise had any meaningful interaction with his daughter, as noted by the Mirror. Now, as Suri gears up for college and approaches adulthood, the air is thick with whispers that Cruise wishes to mend the fractured relationship.

Fueling these speculations, Cruise has curiously refrained from visiting the UK headquarters of the Church of Scientology. This, despite spending approximately three years in the UK filming his recent cinematic projects.

Scientology's Role in Cruise's Personal Life

The Church of Scientology and Cruise's personal life have been intricately intertwined, influencing not only his relationship with Suri but also with his two other children with Nicole Kidman – Isabella Jane and Connor.

Both are practicing Scientologists, with Isabella reportedly holding a high position within the Church's hierarchy. Cruise's dedication to Scientology has had profound effects on his personal life. He candidly shared that his former spouse, Katie Holmes, initiated the divorce proceedings partly due to her reluctance to involve their daughter with the Church.

Delving deeper into his beliefs, Cruise once stated in 2008: "It’s like, we’re here to help. If you’re a Scientologist, you see life, things, the way they are, in all its glory, in all of its perplexity, and the more you know as a Scientologist, the more you become overwhelmed by it."
