All of those reports about Tom Cruise not seeing his daughter, Suri, for three years is being confirmed by a supposedly reliable source. It’s true that the Mission: Impossible star hasn’t seen his 10-year-old daughter or tried making contact with her since divorcing her mom, Katie Holmes.
This week’s issue of OK! Magazine has a photo of Holmes and Suri on the cover that reads “Their Life Without Tom” with the subheading supposedly from Katie that says, “I’m raising Suri my way.”
It adds below that, “The SHOCKING TRUTH: Why Tom never sees his daughter.”
Gossip Cop routinely discredits OK! and other tabloids on a regular basis for promulgating lies and distorting facts. The site that many celebrity publicists call upon to set the record straight actually praises OK! for its “mostly right this week” report. It confirms that the cover story did a good job overall of not making anything up.
The surveillance site confirms that Tom hasn’t seen his daughter in three years.
“Not only hasn’t Cruise seen Suri in three-plus years, but we can exclusively report he has not even contacted his daughter in that time,” Gossip Cop confirms exclusively. “According to one of our sources, ‘There’s been no communication at all.'”

The article confirms a lot of things some reports have alleged. It also explains that it’s true Tom Cruise has opportunities to see Suri but never takes them up. Tom “can jet anywhere he wants, was just a few states away from Suri and never tried to see her, let alone contact her,” Gossip Cop continues.
Any reports that claim Tom is ready to fight for custody of Suri are deemed false because he doesn’t even attempt to contact her.
“It’s crazy people are focusing on [Cruise] looking for more custody when he hasn’t even attempted to contact [his daughter] in years,” a source told Gossip Cop.
A source described as “impeccable” also told the site, “Trying to get custody? How about seeing [Suri] first?”
A report by OK! last year claimed that Tom had a secret meeting with Suri in New York City when he was shooting a movie. The actor reportedly spent three hours with his daughter in an apartment said to be owned by “someone in his management team.” The report raved that Cruise gave Suri “a big teddy bear as the two embraced and then played hide-and-seek and read stories.” Gossip Cop called out the report as false soon after it published.
Scientology experts have weighed in on reports about Tom Cruise not seeing his daughter in three years. Scientology expert and author Tony Ortega spoke with Hollywood Life earlier this year about the situation. He said that Scientology alone is the reason for Suri’s absence in Cruise’s life.
“If Tom was not famous, he would NOT be allowed to have any contact with Katie and Suri who would be considered a Potential Trouble Source, meaning that as long as she’s connected to her mom, she could present a problem,” Ortega said. “She could hinder Tom’s spiritual growth in Scientology, which is by far the most important thing for a Scientologist.”

Ortega added that celebrities live by a different set of rules than normal members of the Church of Scientology, meaning he’d be given a pass of sorts if he did decide to visit his daughter. It’s this part that makes him wonder if Scientology leader David Miscavige and Tom consider Katie “an SP (Suppressive Person) and Suri, by extension, PTS (Potential Trouble Source).”
It’s evident Cruise has no plans to see his daughter after three years of keeping his distance. In the meantime, Suri is pictured with her mother on various outings and is seen on Katie’s Instagram. The mother-daughter duo look happy and appear as though nothing is missing in their life.
Has Tom Cruise completely cut his daughter out of his life?
