Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes finalized their divorce agreement in an astonishing 11 days, granting the actor visitation rights to his daughter Suri for 10 days a month. However, despite this, Cruise has not been able to make it happen and has been estranged from his daughter for a prolonged period of time. Sources say that the actor never intended to be so far away from his daughter, so what is the reason behind this estrangement? In 2004, Katie Holmes, then engaged, admitted to Seventeen that she had once fantasized about marrying Tom Cruise. The couple eventually tied the knot in 2006 and welcomed their daughter Suri in April of the same year.
However, after six years of marriage, Holmes filed for divorce in 2012.The custody agreement reached between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes makes it clear that he can see his daughter for 10 days a month. But due to the fact that they don't live in the same state or country, it seems that Cruise has not been able to make it happen. This could be one of the main factors that complicate the relationship between Tom Cruise and his daughter Suri. It is possible that Tom Cruise's busy schedule as an actor and producer has also played a role in his estrangement from Suri.
Since 2012, he has starred in several movies such as Oblivion (2013), Edge of Tomorrow (2014), Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015), The Mummy (2017) and Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018). He also produced films such as Jack Reacher (2012) and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015). It is also possible that Scientology could be another factor that has contributed to Tom Cruise's estrangement from his daughter. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holmes was worried about her daughter being raised as a Scientologist and wanted her to have a normal childhood.
Whatever the reason may be, it is clear that Tom Cruise's prolonged period of estrangement from Suri has been difficult for both father and daughter. Hopefully, they will be able to reunite soon and build a strong relationship.
