What is the Relationship Between Tom Cruise and His Daughter Suri?

Reports suggest that Tom Cruise's relationship with his daughter Suri is complicated, despite obtaining visitation rights during the divorce. One factor that likely contributes to the distance between Tom Cruise and his daughter is that they don't live in the same state or country. The custody agreement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes allows for him to see Suri for 10 days a month, but it appears that he has not been able to make it happen. Despite the prolonged estrangement from Suri, a supposed friend of Tom's has stated that the actor never intended to be so far away from his daughter.

Many people speculated (and Tom later confirmed) that Katie Holmes ended the marriage, at least in part, to protect Suri from Scientology, the religion Tom has been a part of for more than 20 years. In 2004, Katie Holmes admitted to Seventeen magazine that she had once fantasized about marrying Tom Cruise (according to HuffPost). The divorce agreement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes was finalized in 11 days (according to InStyle), which is quite remarkable.
