Isabella Cruise, known as Bella, is finally coming clean on her relationship with parents Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, which has been strained by the commitment of Tom Cruise and Bella Cruise to Scientology. When the marriage of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman dissolved, reportedly due to differences of opinion about Scientology, Bella Cruise and her brother Conor reportedly began referring to Nicole Kidman as a “subversive person,” a term used in Scientology about people to be avoided.
According to The Inquisitr, Bella Cruise got married this fall, and neither parent was in attendance, but Nicole Kidman was in London for the arrangements, and had dinner with Bella Cruise and her new husband. Though neither Tom Cruise nor Nicole Kidman attended their daughter’s wedding, sources say the parents paid the tab, and did not want to make Bella Cruise’s wedding a media circus, so they stayed away from London’s Dorchester Hotel.
Page Six is reporting that Bella Cruise seems to have matured past the point where Scientology determines her relationship with her mother Nicole Kidman. Bella Cruise says that any rumors of estrangement between herself and parents Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise are untrue.
“Of course [we talk], they’re my parents.”
Bella Cruise married Ben Parker in London, and they prefer to stay out of the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle.
“Yeah, you could say that. It’s more [of a] weird [situation] for everyone else.”
Bella Cruise commented that she is interested in expanding her family with Parker soon, but she is still a baby herself.
Bella Cruise told New Idea that she rejects her mother, Nicole Kidman’s millionaire lifestyle of jet setting and glamour, though makes no big deal of her father Tom Cruise’s billionaire lifestyle. Bella Cruise says she prefers to live a modest life, and rejects money from her “A-list” parents, though sources say that Tom Cruise and/or Nicole Kidman did pay for a high-end London wedding.
But even though Bella Cruise now claims that she has normal contact with parents Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, information from former Scientology member Leah Remini refutes this, at least in the past, and says she was shocked at how Bella Cruise and her brother Conor were turned against Nicole Kidman, according to the Daily Mail.
At Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes, which was called the Scientology event of the year, Remini got the chance to ask a then teen Bella Cruise about her relationship with her mother Nicole Kidman. Remini asked if Bella sees Kidman.
“Not if I have a choice,” Bella said, according to Remini’s tell-all new book. “Our mom is a f*****g SP.”
After the wedding, Katie Holmes broke stepmother code and said that Bella and Conor Cruise call her “mom.”
Though Nicole Kidman left Tom Cruise and Scientology, she has chosen not to speak publicly about Cruise or Scientology, because her children Bella and Conor both still consider themselves followers of Scientology.
“I’ve chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children who are Scientologists—Connor and Isabella—and I utterly respect their beliefs.”
It is still unclear whether Kidman and Cruise chose not to attend Bella Cruise’s wedding, or whether they were not invited. Bella’s husband, Max Parker, is reportedly not a member of the Church of Scientology, though the couple’s London home is close to the London chapter of the Church of Scientology.
On the topic of Kidman, Conor Cruise said that he loves his mom, and the two are close. “We are solid.” Nicole Kidman seems to also feel that both Conor and Bella Cruise are amazing people.
‘They are generous, kind and hardworking,” she told Woman’s Weekly. “And these are traits that I love to see in my children.”
Happily, though Bella and Conor Cruise are children of divorce, they seem to have a bond with both Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, despite the religious differences over Scientology.
Do you think that Bella Cruise’s relationship with her mother, Nicole Kidman, was harmed by Scientology?
