When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes ended their marriage in 2012, it resulted in the Mission Impossible star having a strained relationship with his daughter, Suri. Since the split, cameras have often caught Holmes with her daughter, but we rarely see Cruise with the 12-year-old. But, now a new report claims that Suri is begging her famous dad to come home and repair their relationship, and Cruise has finally responded.
According to Radar Online, Suri has sent her dad a series of heartbreaking letters, and she has been calling him and leaving voicemails asking for him to visit her. An inside source says that after Suri’s begging, Cruise is starting to pave the way to getting back into his daughter’s life permanently.

“He’s contacted Suri through a third party, who he trusts implicitly, to check in and make sure she’s okay,” said the insider. “He wants her to know that he’s thought of her all this time and that he got all of her messages. In fact, he read and listened to each and every word.”
Another source says that Cruise has been absent for multiple milestones in Suri’s life since he and Holmes divorced, and it has been painful for her.
When someone leaves the Church of Scientology as Holmes did, they require members to “disconnect” from those people, so Cruise couldn’t keep in contact with Suri because she lived with Holmes after she fled the religion.
However, since Cruise is one of the top celebrities in Scientology, a source says that the actor believes he can bypass that rule. Even though he is building a home in Florida to help build his Church’s membership, he has an ulterior motive. An insider says that what he is really doing is setting the stage to reunite with his youngest daughter.

Holmes reportedly fully supports Suri seeing her dad, and she would never stand in the way of her daughter having a relationship with Cruise. After missing out on so much, the superstar actor wants Suri to be a part of his life.
Cruise keeps his offscreen life – and his relationship with his kids – extremely private. In addition to Suri, the 56-year-old is also the father of 25-year-old Bella and 23-year-old Connor who he adopted with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
Both Bella and Connor have mostly remained out of the spotlight. Bella married Max Parker in 2015, and the couple lives in London. However, neither of her parents attended the wedding. Connor lives in a Scientology community in Clearwater, Florida, near the church’s headquarters, and is a competitive deep-sea fisherman.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have not publicly commented on the Mission Impossible star’s relationship with his daughter.
