SURI: 1,000 DAYS WITH­OUT DADDY

In Touch (USA) - - News flash -

It’s been 1,000 days — more than two-and-a-half years — since Tom Cruise last saw his daugh­ter Suri in per­son. And in ad­di­tion to no phys­i­cal con­tact, the ac­tor hasn’t even spo­ken to her by phone, a source ex­clu­sively tells In Touch. “They used to Skype and text, but that trailed off dras­ti­cally,” says a sec­ond source. “He uses his film com­mit­ments as an ex­cuse, but the truth is that doesn’t hold much weight with Suri any­more.” The rea­son, says an in­sider, is Scien­tol­ogy’s “dis­con­nec­tion” pol­icy. The con­tro­ver­sial re­li­gion dis­cour­ages its mem­bers from as­so­ci­at­ing with those who have left the church, as Katie Holmes, 37, did when she split from Tom, 53, in 2012, tak­ing Suri, now 10, with her. “Tom eats, breathes and sleeps Scien­tol­ogy,” says the in­sider. “He’s disconnected from Katie, and then de facto from Suri, be­cause of her con­nec­tion to Katie. He hasn’t seen her since she was 7.” Luck­ily, Suri has an amaz­ing re­la­tion­ship with her other par­ent. “Katie’s a great, hands-on mom and is com­pletely de­voted to her daugh­ter,” says an­other in­sider. “Ev­ery de­ci­sion Katie makes, she puts Suri first. She’s ded­i­cated to try­ing to give Suri a won­der­ful, happy, healthy life.”

One of Tom’s last pho­tos with Suri is from Au­gust 2012.
