In Touch: Tom Cruise hasn’t seen daughter Suri in-person in 1,346 days

Universal celebrates 'The Mummy Day' With 75-Foot Sarcophagus

Here are some photos of Tom Cruise on Mummy Day in LA over the weekend. It was just a promotional event for his latest film, The Mummy. I actually have to admit, I was never into the Brendan Fraser-Mummy movies, but I keep seeing the ads for this Cruise-led Mummy movie and they honestly don’t look terrible. The movie doesn’t look like it’s for little kids, but I could see teenagers liking it.

Anyway, Tom is going through the motions of another promotional tour, trying not to jump on any couches or make any news at all. Which has led to some interesting headlines. Here are some stories circulating about Cruise:

Tom said words about his daughter Suri. Tom hasn’t said much of anything to or about Suri in many, many years. Most people believe that he’s completely cut off ties with Suri and that CoS has convinced him that Suri is a Suppressive Person (SP). Anyway, Tom was asked if he thinks Suri wants to become an actor like her parents, and all Tom said was “You never know, you never know.”

In Touch Weekly says Tom just ignores Suri now. Like, he was in LA for this Mummy Day thing and Katie Holmes and Suri were in LA too, just a few miles away and Tom “did not set up a visit with her” and after the event, he got on a plane to Australia. In Touch says that he hasn’t seen Suri in person in “1,346 days.”

Don’t touch the hair. Tom’s surrounded by people, and those people tell other people to “step away” from The Cruise. The Cruise’s hair will not be touched by mere mortals. The Cruise’s hair will not be touched by Australian TV hair stylists. One of Tom’s people said that staffers are not allowed to touch the hair unless he was in total “privacy.”

Tom Gun 2 is totally happening. We’ve heard this before, but now Tom says it’s absolutely, “definitely happening.” He said they were probably going to film it next year. Ooh, I hope Meg Ryan comes back! And Val Kilmer!

    Never liked tom cruise and never saw his appeal. Good for Katie escaping and taking Siri out of the hell they would endure. Kudos. Well done.

    • Forestlass says:

      I can’t quit him.. Ok he’s part of a cult, don’t see his kids and his relationships are weird but on screen he’s a movie star!

      • hannah89 says:

        @Forestlass

        Maybe you should make some effort and watch Going Clear.

      • C says:

        I know what you mean. I love The last Samurai “

      • Sabrine says:

        How do they know for certain he doesn’t see Suri? Perhaps meetings are secret. It would be really sad for her though if she is totally ignored by him.

      • BooRadley says:

        FL and Sabrine I get what both of you are saying. It’s like wtf happened to him. Just saw risky business for the first time recently, and it still holds up. Now this creepy, robotic, crazed, and also pitiable now that we know how he’s been used :( for evil :’(
        But dammit if I don’t go see a Tom cruise movie, and usually in the theatres. It’s sad but true. He’s dependable, he delivers, but I do wish he’d stop taking off his shirt.

    • Lime'n'Orange says:

      I agree with Seraphina. She went into the marriage with wacky Tom with eyes wide open but a little star struck, but at least she made good her mistake and did the right thing by her daughter. I was just reading an old NYPost article, with some juicy leaks in it:How Katie was cast to play Tom’s wife. They had leaks from Sofia Vergara’s people saying Katie Holmes was a “much weaker and innocent” person than SV, who felt sorry for her during the couch-jumping era.

      It’s easy to forget when he’s playing action hero on screen, but here’s to stating the obvious again: there’s something very, very, very, very, very wrong with him. A man who can abandon his child just like that is not a sane person.

      • Carrie says:

        Agree there’s something very wrong with him. Ever since his treatment of Nicole, I’ve been wary. At one point Sally Field was interviewed somewhere, before his public antics, and she alluded to Tom not being a good guy. At that time, before anyone was saying anything remotely negative about him, that was shocking.

        During his marriage to Katie, he had a long interview – might have been with Barbara Walters – at his Aspen home. Katie kept telling him she loved him and he was dismissive of her – “yeah yeah ok” he said, if memory serves. It looked like she was trying to reassure him but he was just using her and she didn’t know that yet. It was sad.

        I can’t stand him now. Can’t even watch anything he did that I used to like. He’s a creepy manipulative person imo.

  2. alfaQ says:

    Pretty sure Scientology has a say in that. Guess they are still angry that Katie managed to escape.

    • Nyawira says:

      Scientology needs Tom a lot more than he needs them. And by all accounts he is the defacto number two. Also even by their doctrine, Suri is not accountable for living with that Suppressive Person, Katie Holmes. If Tom WANTED to see Suri and remain in his cult, he could. He is just a deadbeat dad

      (And all things considered, Suri is lucky that he is a deadbeat)

      • amalia says:

        I think Tom is so brainwashed that he really thinks he needs Scientology. I doubt that he could live without them at this point. He donates so much money to them etc. and I wouldn’t be surprised if David Miscavige and his friends laugh behind his back.

      • Lime'n'Orange says:

        One of the documentaries I watched had some ex-Ho$er saying DM was gossiping about TC’s audit files and commenting how perverted he was. They also said definitively TC is not gay.

  3. Clare says:

    Probably good for the kid to stay as far away from this dude – no one needs a cult leading crazy for a dad.

  4. Miles says:

    Maybe it’s for the best that Suri doesn’t have contact with Tom. I don’t know.

    But I will say this…gossip rags need to do better when it comes to their stories. Katie and Suri were not in LA this past weekend. Katie was in NYC. You would think magazines like In Touch would realize that the Internet and Social Media can very easily disprove “stories” like this.

    Having said that…there is no doubt in my mind that Tom hasn’t seen Suri in a while, but like I said maybe it’s for the best and maybe it’s what Katie wants for her daughter.

    • Luca76 says:

      It’s got to be so weird having a father that’s one of the most famous men on earth with little or no contact. I think she’s better off away from Scientology however it’s just a bizarre thing.

    • CF98 says:

      Actually Katie/Suri were in LA they were at the U2 concert which was at the Rose Bowl.

  5. Stacey Dresden says:

    Hasn’t seen his daughter in years. Has means to see her often. That really says it all. Hollywood should blackball this pathetic cult member.

  6. Beth says:

    Many, many years ago, I loved Tom Cruise. He’s such a jerk now. Doesn’t see, care, or know anything about his daughter? Too bad fathers like him exist.
    Why is he standing like that? Close your damn legs, you look ridiculous!

  7. flybaby says:

    Why does he only do action movies now? He made some really good movies earlier in his career.

    • Stacey Dresden says:

      Perhaps they feed his ego.

    • amalia says:

      Rumor has it that he wanted an Oscar for one of his serious roles but when he realised he will never get one he continued to make action movies. He also earns the most with them.

    • V4Real says:

      And Tom confirmed that there will be a sequel to Top Gun, oh boy.

    • Marianne says:

      Either he wants to do action films (Maybe they’re funnier or simply a bigger paycheck) or he’s been typecast and producers simply cant see him in any other type of role.

    • third ginger says:

      Cruise’s best chance for an Oscar [he was actually the favorite to win] was in 1990 [movies from 89] was BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY. It was a perfectly good performance, but the man many think is the world’s greatest living actor, Sir Daniel Day-Lewis, won for MY LEFT FOOT. Cruise had a few more nominations after that but does not seem to focus on serious drama… unless THE MUMMY is serious drama.

      • Shiba says:

        Respectfully, the studio & Tom’s people pushed his performance in BotFoJuly HARD. It was all hype, though. That’s why you rarely see it replayed.

      • third ginger says:

        I have no doubt that’s true. Day-Lewis has been my favorite actor for over 30 years. There is no comparison between the two.

  8. Lafawnda says:

    It’s for the best that he hasn’t seen her, IMO. If they can make that guy’s wife disappear with hardly any investigation or questions, Tom could easily do that with Suri as well. If I were Katie, I wouldn’t let Suri out of my sight. I’m so glad she got herself and her daughter out of that dangerous cult.

  9. Jenns says:

    I’m torn on Tom Cruise. Obviously CoS is terrible and so is not seeing your kid.

    But after reading Going Clear, I came away thinking that Tom Cruise is the type of person who would fall into a cult very easily. Mostly because he’s described as being not very smart. I think David Miscavage has completely and totally indoctrinated him. Their relationship is so weird and unhealthy and I really believe the reason that you haven’t seen a girlfriend with Cruise for a while is because Miscavage is keeping him all to himself.

    • Birdie says:

      Don’t feel sorry for him. He is not a victim, he chose this life. If he really neglects Suri he is simply a pos!

    • minx says:

      He sold his soul to be a movie star, so….

    • Shannon says:

      Lots of people aren’t very smart – look at who our president is (gag). But to completely abandon your child over a stupid cult isn’t just “not very smart.” It’s horrible. If this is true, hopefully Suri just doesn’t gaf anymore and knows it’s his loss.

  10. Birdie says:

    Meg Ryan was in Top Gun?!

    • Aila says:

      Yeah, she was! She played Goose’s wife, Carole.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yep and so was Anthony Edwards (ER)! I doubt the rest of the cast will be invited back. They are “too old” for Tommy.

      I’ve been boycotting his movies since he told postpartum women to take some vitamins and exercise to get rid of depression.

      • supposedtobeworking says:

        I avoid his movies because I don’t want to financially support child slavery, and much of his money goes to the church.

      • Sayrah says:

        Well Goose won’t be back for the sequel.. and I doubt Kelly McGillis will return.

  11. Abigail says:

    His hair looks thinner and it seems like he’s aging noticeably for the first time.

  12. minx says:

    In Touch might as well stop counting, I’d don’t think he’s ever going to see her, and it’s what’s best for her.

  13. Pandy says:

    Well I’m taking this with a hefty grain of salt. Considering how undercover Katie and Jamie are, it wouldn’t be a big stretch that Tom arranges his visits just as stealthily.

    • Lady D says:

      If you were Katie would you let him go anywhere with your daughter?

      • Wendy says:

        Yes, because she is his daughter too and she deserves to know her father regardless of what the tabloids lead us to believe.

      • Ella says:

        It’s got nothing to do with “the tabloids.” It’s well established that Tom is heavily involved with a notoriously abusive cult. In this case it may not be best for Suri to see him regularly.

  14. Ollie says:

    Who knows if this is true. Katie seems to manage a secret relationship with Fox for years. No photos, no interviews, all silent. Cruise lives basically undercover when he’s not filming and promoting.
    So Tommy Boy might see his daughter in secret. As long as there is no proof, Scientology will accept such an arrangement. They just don’t want other members to see. Cruise sure gets special treatment. It would explain why he stays silent and doesn’t defend himself against the “horrible father” headlines. He always answers vague. He is so in love with himself, he would fight for his Image if he could.

    • Cynical Ann says:

      Yes-I agree. He’s super creepy, as is his “church” but we really don’t know if he sees Suri or not. This is not exactly a reputable news source.

    • Goldie says:

      It’s possible that he sees his daughter in private, but personally I don’t believe he would let the press get away with calling him a deadbeat dad, if it wasn’t true. Remember when he sued the tabloids for saying that he abandoned her? He obviously cares about public perception, and yet now, he doesn’t even bother to deny the stories that he hasn’t seen her in years. Some people have speculated that Tom has to pretend to not see Suri, so that he doesn’t appear to be getting special treatment, but I don’t buy that. Frankly, I don’t think he cares if other members of his church know that he receives special treatment. I think he sees himself as some sort demigod and other scientologists shouldn’t expect the normal rules to apply to him.
      Given how fanatic he is about Scientology, I just think it’s more likely that he has chosen to cut off ties with her.

    • Fanny says:

      When the transcript came out from the In Touch lawsuit, it confirmed that Tom doesn’t see Suri. Tom sued In Touch because they characterized him as a bad father for not seeing Suri. Tom’s defense is that he talked to her on the phone. Tom lost.

      Maybe he still talks to her on the phone, but I doubt it at this point.

      • Carrie says:

        I was just about to ask if he lost that lawsuit as it could explain why he doesn’t respond to ongoing stories. Not that a lack of response implies truth but in his case, it’s weird. Thanks for refreshing memory on this. So much about him to recall, it’s ridiculous.

    • Lime'n'Orange says:

      I’m pretty sure the rumours are true. Katie had her team leak to Gossip Cop several times, I believe, whenever the Cruise PR team’s loving-father-had-a-top-secret-meet-up-with-Suri stories came out, coincidentally around the time a new film was released.

      TC sued and settled with Bauer Media a few years back for writing he’d abandoned her. And remember his water-park pap shots where he invited the paps to stand literally 3 metres away while he played with Suri (around or right after divorce)?

      The guy would be suing all over the place right now if he really
      sees his daughter regularly, and he would make sure they got papped to dispel the daughter-abandonment rumours.

      It’s beyond obvious he doesn’t see her.

  15. Guest says:

    Why are his exes always named as victims? Geez Holmes always knew about his Scientology shit. She milked him the same way he used her. And how do we know that this bull with his daughter is true? I am not a fan of him and I really don’t watch his movies anymore. It’s just funny that the guy seems to be the second Guru but he dated Nicole and Penelope. Hollywood is a weird place. People still worship Woody or Roman. They banished Mel and welcomed him back in their arms. They closed the door for this guy who obviously raped someone in college but handed an Oscar to Casey. Cruise is a maniac like anyone else there. Cate Blanchet and Emma worked with Woody. Lawrence and all other chics still work with Harvey although he is a douche. If anyone in Hollywood would really care, a lot of people would crawl under a rock instead of partying in Cannes. It’s disgusting.

    • Oliphant says:

      Yeah I never understand this victim narrative Katie Holmes has woven for herself – she walked into that marriage eyes wide open

      • Goldie says:

        Whether Katie’s a victim or not is kind of beside the point. The point is that Tom has allegedly abandoned his daughter. Katie could be a terrible person, but that doesn’t excuse Tom for being an absent father.
        I always think it’s interesting that people always point out that Katie “knew what she was getting into” but people hardly ever point out that Tom knew what he was getting into as well. I mean he knew that she wasn’t a Scientologist. Why does Tom repeatedly choose to have children with women outside of his faith? Then when the relationship ends he either alienates the children from their mother (Nicole) or he abandons the child. It’s incredibly irresponsible. He should just settle down with a scientologist if his faith is so important to him.

      • anon33 says:

        Because, don’t you know, everything is the woman’s fault! always! This article is about how Tom is a deadbeat dad, but people just cannot stop themselves from talking shit about the woman who is ACTUALLY RAISING HER CHILD.

        Also, for maybe the nine hundredth time, people get blindsided by abuse ALL THE TIME. It’s kind of how abusers work, so when people say dumb shit like, “oh, whatever, she totes knew what she was getting into,” maybe stop talking if you haven’t been through something similar yourself.

      • Lime'n'Orange says:

        I agree Katie was silly to have put up with TC’s too much PDA and auditing and HO$ handlers and TC insisting she gets called Kate, not Katie, and ad nauseam, but she gets all her points put back for making The Great Escape and doing the right thing by her daughter.

      • CF98 says:

        How exactly has she woven this narrative she hasn’t talked about Tom at all since the divorce.

        Many will think she signed some NDA but that didn’t stop Nicole from saying she could wear heels again and still talk about Tom despite being married to someone else and having a new family.

        If anyone has gotten a pass its been Nicole who left her kids with Tom behind. At least Katie didn’t abandon Suri.

        Katie should’ve used better judgment but she appears to have learned from it now.

  16. Wren33 says:

    So….he has some sort of hair piece now?

  17. BeamMeUpScottie says:

    Guy sounds like he has serious issues.

  18. Pumpkin Pie says:

    “One of Tom’s people said that staffers are not allowed to touch the hair unless he was in total “privacy.” WTF?

  19. crazydaisy says:

    He sure turned out to be a strange, strange little man.

  20. Marianne says:

    It might be hard for Suri right now to not have her dad in her life but I’m sure in the long run it will be a lot better for her.

    Maybe it will be like a Kate Hudson thing where she will grow up and consider Jamie as her dad.

  21. jana says:

    This cult has absolutely ruined Tom Cruise. He used to be such a talented, sweet, kind guy. But now he’s just another age obsessed, vain, thrice divorced, bitter old Hollywood actor.

  22. angie0717 says:

    My heart BREAKS for that girl. Whether he’s in her life or not, one thing is true: he is doing what HE wants and with little/ no regard for his daughter. It is completely unfair that he’s an international star and can be found in movies, interviews, billboards around the globe but not anywhere near his daughter. It’s shameful. And I hope a journalist calls him out for it.

  23. JFIT says:

    He is a total douche bag. Poor Suri is lucky enough to have an actual father and he’s in the same radius and can’t take the time to see her. The poor girl only sees her father through the media, hanging out and having fun with others. Way to go Tom…one word…COWARD! The fact that Hollywood even hires such a disgraceful father is sad. Poor Katie as well to have to even possibly figure out how to begin to explain to her daughter why her father doesn’t have any love for her.

  24. DesertReal says:

    Anyone that picky about their hair (and who touches it) definitely has some pieces in place.
    Just sayin’
    And is it me or does it feel like we’ve been seeing the same Mummy promos for like…18 months. I swear it. Every single movie I’ve seen in the past year and a half (most recently the shockingly good Aliens Covenant) has had it attached.

  25. D says:

    This guy is 100% cancelled as far as im concerned. And TG2? What a joke.

  26. Bread and Circuses says:

    “One of Tom’s people said that staffers are not allowed to touch the hair unless he was in total “privacy.””

    Toupee?
