Reports suggest that Cruise doesn't see his daughter frequently despite obtaining visitation rights during the divorce. One factor that probably complicates the relationship between Tom Cruise and his daughter Suri is that they don't live in the same state or in the same country. Although the custody agreement reached between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes makes it clear that he can see his daughter, Suri Cruise, for 10 days a month, it seems that he has not been able to make it happen. Despite Tom Cruise's prolonged period of estrangement from Suri, a supposed friend of his has stated that the actor never intended to be so far away from his daughter.
Many people speculated (and Tom later confirmed) that Holmes ended the marriage, at least in part, in an effort to protect Suri from Scientology, the controversial “religion that Tom has been a part of for more than 20 years.” In 2004, Katie Holmes, then engaged, admitted to Seventeen that she had once fantasized about marrying Tom Cruise (according to HuffPost). Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes finalized the details of their divorce agreement in 11 days (according to InStyle), which is quite remarkable.
