    “The Big Issue Really Was Raising Suri As A…”: Katie Holmes Divorced Tom Cruise For Her Daughter

    There’s hardly something a mother won’t do to protect her children. When it comes to the safe and successful future of her babies, even Hollywood moms are ready to do anything, even letting their marriage crumble in the spotlight. You would be shocked to know the reason behind Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce.

    Hollywood’s sweetheart Katie, allegedly allowed her high-profile marriage to crumble, all for the sake of securing her daughter’s life. The couple tied the knot in 2006 and then untied it six years later in 2012. People say the third time’s a charm, guess not for Tom Cruise.

    Katie Holmes, the third wife of Tom Cruise, reportedly initiated the divorce to shield her daughter, Suri, from the controversial grasp of Scientology. Sources reveal that Holmes and Cruise had fundamental differences in their beliefs about life. The primary bone of contention was the upbringing of Suri within the confines of Tom’s religion. Scientology is a religion founded by Ron Miscavige in 1950 and Tom was converted to the said practice in 1986 by his first wife Mimi Rogers. 

    The current Scientology leader is David Miscavige who is the son of Ron Miscavige. Ron had previously disclosed in an interview with DailyMail that Holmes feared Suri’s potential disconnection from her if she followed in Cruise’s footsteps. He said, “The big issue really was raising Suri as a Scientologist,” adding, “If that happened, someday it was a possibility that she would disconnect from Katie. Ultimately this is what has happened to me.”

    According to reports, Holmes sought assistance from her father, Martin Joseph Holmes to divorce Cruise. Known for his rigid principles, Martin is said to have played a pivotal role in the legal proceedings. He helped ensure that Holmes could chart a new course for herself and, more importantly, for her daughter Suri.

    The daughter for whom Katie put her marriage in court is now carving her path in the world. As Holmes intended, 17-year-old Suri has maintained distance from the controversies surrounding Scientology. Suri holds a passion for fashion and is keen on pursuing that in college. Her decision is fully supported by her slightly overprotective mother. Holmes, ever watchful, wants to keep Suri close. 

    Despite Holmes’ best efforts to shield her daughter from the glitzy allure of Hollywood, the talented teenager’s voice made a brief appearance in 2021’s ‘Alone Together’. Holmes is very proud of her daughter’s talent as at the time she said, “She’s very, very talented. She said she would do it and she recorded it. I let her do her thing. That’s the way I direct, in general.”
