Tom Cruise did not ignore his daughter Suri Cruise after she supposedly reached out and begged for a reunion, despite a made-up tabloid report. The 13-year-old girl hasn't contacted her estranged dad. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.
An alleged source tells Life & Style that Suri "recently pleaded with Tom to come and visit," but "she didn't get an answer." The questionable source goes on to say the situation resulted in the young girl getting into a fight with her mom, Katie Holmes. "They're like all mothers and daughters," adds the suspicious tipster. "They argue."
The outlet's premise is based on claims from an anonymous and possibly fictitious "source," but Holmes' own spokesperson says on the record that her daughter never reached out to Cruise. The actress's rep, who's qualified to speak on her behalf, also confirms there's no tension between her and Suri over the matter. Holmes' spokesperson says, "This story has no truth. Katie is a wonderful mother and her daughter is thriving."
Additionally, the outlet doesn't bother to explain how Suri went about contacting her father. Did she call him? Leave a voicemail? Text? If so, how did she get his phone number? If there were any validity to the magazine's report, one would think there would be a few more details.
Unfortunately, Gossip Cop isn't surprised by the tabloid's phony story. Cruise's relationship with his daughter has been the subject of countless bogus reports. The gossip media simply has no insight into the situation. Last year, we busted Life & Style's sister publication, Star, for wrongly reporting that Cruise was quitting Scientology to reunite with his daughter. In the time since we debunked the narrative, the movie star purchased a penthouse in Clearwater, Florida, where the Church of Scientology's international headquarters are located.
Also last year, Gossip Cop called out Life & Style's other sister outlet, OK!, for making up a similar report about Suri begging her dad to visit her. In that version of the story, however, the movie star agreed to come back into his daughter's life. This latest article is offering up a different take on the narrative by saying that Cruise snubbed her request. Neither angle is accurate.
Gossip Cop also recently busted OK! for making up a story about Holmes having a "breakdown" over Suri supposedly wanting to reunite with her dad. There's a lot of mystery surrounding Cruise's estrangement from his daughter, but you won't find any insight in the tabloids, which have continued to peddle out fiction about the situation.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
