Tom Cruise was spotted on the sets of “The Mummy” in London on the day of his daughter Suri Cruise’s 10th birthday. The actor was not able to make it to Suri’s birthday because of work commitments.
The 53-year-old Scientologist stepped out in a black t-shirt and jeans in London Monday, according to photos shared by Just Jared. Cruise had reportedly informed Suri that he would not be able to make it for her birthday celebration.
Meanwhile, Suri appeared grumpy during an outing with her mother Katie Holmes, according to Hollywood Life, which speculated that she might be missing her father.
It was reported recently that another reason for Cruise not being able to be their Suri on her birthday was the Church of Scientology.
“[Cruise] had plenty of chances to see Suri in the past,” a source had told InTouch magazine, noting that it has been over 900 days since he has seen Suri. But Katie has been called a “suppressive person” by the Church of Scientology, the report claimed, and “the closeness to her daughter likely makes seeing them both off-limits to Tom.”
“Tom sees pictures of Suri growing into a young woman…and it eats away at him that he’s not there for it,” the source told InTouch, according to the entertainment website. However, Cruise is planning to make amendments after changing Suri’s custody arrangement, the report added.
Cruise is reportedly planning to move to the Scientology headquarters in the United Kingdom after selling his London house to spread the religion to Europe. He is expected to move into the 100-acre estate in a bid to expand Scientology in Europe. Latest renovations at the headquarters are reported to be worth $16 million.
