Tom Cruise skips daughter’s wedding; Scientology tiff at root?

Isabella, the adopted daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman allegedly got married in a secret ceremony last month in the absence of her father and brother Connor Cruise.


Well, that’s a bombshell! Photos published by Women’s Day magazine show the 22-year-old “Bella” in a thigh-length lace white wedding dress, smiling with her bridesmaids after saying “I do” to British IT consultant Max Parker, also 22.

It’s unclear whether Tom skipped the wedding or wasn’t invited, but a source who was at the wedding reports that Kidman was there.

Indeed none of the newlywed couple’s parents attended the ceremony, in accordance with the pair’s wishes. Isabella is technically a member of the Church of Scientology, and still attends services regularly, according to reports.

Of course, this only furthers rumors that Isabella and Nicole Kidman don’t really communicate – which is something Nicole has denied in the past. According to Radar Online, Isabella actually didn’t have any of her immediate family members witness her “I do’s”. But despite of it, Nicole Kidman is reportedly delighted of the news of her daughter’s marriage.

Actors Nicole Kidman and husband Tom Cruise arrive at Sydney Kingsford Smith airport and introduce their children Connor and Isabella to the media January 24, 1996 in Sydney, Australia.

Max had five groomsmen, two of whom are Scientologists. “I’m definitely engaged in it but I don’t let it rule my life”. We never do. Once in a blue moon, we’ll text. “But mainly we say, ‘I want to hear your voice, ‘” Kidman added.


The actress divorced from actor Tom in 2001, she remarried in 2006 to singer Keith Urban.
