Isabella Cruise allegedly married a non-Scientologist & Tom didn’t show up

Tom Cruise

Isabella Cruise has always kept a low profile relative to her father’s fame. Most of the time, I remember her in sad-looking photos alongside Katie Holmes (at the point when it became clear that Katie was a prisoner of Scientology). Isabella was largely estranged from mom Nicole Kidman after church officials sat Isabella and Connor Cruise down to tell them their mother was a sociopath. Isabella lived with Tom, and he sort of approved of her Scientology boyfriends until he’d casually have them shipped off to Sea Org for billion-year contracts.

Women’s Day Australia has a new story about Isabella that comes completely out of the blue. They say Isabella married a non-Scientologist guy. Tom did not attend the ceremony, but Nicole did. The story would seem sketchy, but look at these photos of Isabella looking pretty bridal. Some details:

The 22-year-old married her partner Max Parker in a secret ceremony at The Dorchester Hotel in Central London on September 18. The pair, who has been dating since the beginning of the year, said ‘I do’ in front of a small group of their closest friends.

Nicole Kidman is said to have been present at the nuptials, however neither Bella’s dad Tom Cruise, 53, or her brother Connor Cruise, 20, were there. The magazine reports the notoriously private adopted daughter of the ex-couple didn’t want to risk her wedding becoming public knowledge before the day.

Bella, a practising Scientologist who recently graduated from a hair and make-up course, asked four fellow graduates from the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Academy to be her bridesmaids. She wore a sleeved, thigh-length lace dress while her bridesmaids wore pale pink jumpsuits.

Parker, a British IT consultant, had five groomsmen, two of which were Scientologists. According to one insider, Bella has already changed her name to Isabella Parker. Kidman and Cruise adopted Bella in 1993 and Connor in 1995, but after they divorced in 2001, both children decided to live with their father.

So there were Scientologists in the wedding party, but Radar says Max Parker is not a member of the “church.” That seems odd to me, but Tom not being there (and Nicole attending) would solidify that point. I hope this story is true because Isabella deserves happiness! She’s been a pawn in Tom’s life for far too long, and I don’t buy that Tom would willingly stay away from his little girl’s day just to spare her publicity. He’d be all over that ceremony doing the Risky Business dance.

    I really hope it’s true, I hope she’s escaped and rebuilt her relationship with Nichole Kidman. It’s her best chance for survival after growing up around all that lunacy.

  2. Lurker says:

    I think Isabella might be on her way to being an SP. GOOD FOR HER!

  3. MoxyLady007 says:

    I’m surprised he didn’t ship her off to clean toilets between teeth filings. He’s a complete psycho.

  4. Shijel says:

    If any of this is true, good for her. if Nicole was there, good for her, too. Can’t imagine what it must’ve been like to have been separated from your kiddos, adopted or not, and for kids to lose her because of this horrid cult.

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:


    • Suze says:

      I remember the photos of Isabella and Nicole in the early days. There was a real relationship there – not just some “for show” photo ops. The separation was indeed a tragedy.

      • Miss M says:

        In her Oscar speech , she mentioned Isabella (she was there) and you could tell she was getting emotional.

      • teacakes says:

        @Miss M – the year after the divorce, she mentioned that Isabella had picked her Oscars dress (the year she was nominated for Moulin Rouge)

        I can’t imagine how screwed up $cientology must be, to destroy a child’s relationship with her mother for not fitting into the cult. I really do hope Isabella has escaped too.

    • Pinky says:

      At some point, a child estranged from its mother will return to her to figure out why. TC never understood that and will end up very much alone, when all the dust settles.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        I agree with you 100%, Pinky.

      • Sarah says:

        I was a divorce lawyer and I saw this all the time. If a child was being raised by one parent and maybe not seeing the other parent much, the child would likely go to live with the other parent when the kid reached their teens. Or like Isabella, reconnecting after they move out.

    • livinglavitalola says:

      I agree. I really hope the reports are true too and nicole was there. Tom and that crazy cult did everything they could to separate nicole from her kids. It’s hard building a relationship with adult children who for years had their minds poisoned against you.

      ETA: it seems like I haven’t seen suri in ages.

  5. Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

    This is one batsh*t crazy guy.. My God…
    If the story is true good for both Isabella and Nicole….

  6. Jayna says:

    It’ s not that he didn’t show up. I don’t think he was invited, nor the groom’s family. It sounds almost like an elopement but in town with just their small group of friends. It didn’t say family from either side.

    He’s not a Scientologist, so I wonder how that plays out, if she knows he would be against it. Tom dated Penelope Cruz for two years and she wasn’t. But marriage is a different thing.

    It sounds like something they put together fast and there wasn’t some engagement. I wonder if she’s pregnant.

    Edit. I reread it and Nicole was there. She is in London doing that play. Hmm, interesting. Nicole, not Tom or Connor. Five groomsmen. How small could it be? LOL

    • Mia4S says:

      ” I wonder how that plays out”

      How that plays out is, unless husband embraces the Xenu, this psycho abandons and rejects another daughter for the sake of his cult. Cruise is seriously repulsive. All about making silly action movies with no effort to being a good father and as far as I’ve seen next to zero efforts for legitimate charity. Yuck.

      • teacakes says:

        I am so disgusted by Tom abandoning Suri, and if he does the same to Isabella for the sake of this cult, he’s even more of a scumbag than I thought.

        I never thought much of Katie Holmes before 2012, but I have a lot of respect for her ninja-ing her way out of that marriage and Co$ and making sure that sh-t never touches her daughter again. Nicole may not have been able to do the same for Connor and Isabella when they were children, but clearly she didn’t give up on them either.

  7. Neah23 says:

    Woman’s Day Australia is a trashy tabloid that is in the same league as Star magazine . So I’m calling this story BS no matter how much I wish it was true.

    • Zingara says:

      Thanks, Neah23. I was hoping someone would pipe up about their reputation. Examples:

      August 17: “KEITH CAUGHT OUT! The video that will break Nicole’s heart!” Story regarding Keith’s meeting with a young singer named Kelsea something. Same issue: “Ben and Jen Divorce – THE NANNYS PREGNANT! SHOCK CLAIM.”

      August 24: “Jens Joy! PREGNANT WITH TWINS!” (J Aniston)

      September 14: 7-WEEK MYSTERY SOLVED. BABY NO. 3!” (Duchess of Cambridge). Same issue: TWIN GIRLS FOR JEN!” (Aniston.)

      September 21: Harry and Chelsy REUNITED?!”

      September 28: “HARRY FINALLY FINDS HIS PRINCESS!” Referring to Chelsy again. There’s also a story about Isabella Cruise’s 10kg weight loss, new look and new life. No mention of any boyfriend, but she apparently caught up with her dad and Scientology friends in LA in July, and regularly attends the CO$ centre in London.

      Eh, you get the idea…

  8. Bridget says:

    There’s been quiet talk for a while of Isabella Cruise wanting out of the Church. Either I have no sense of time, or this isn’t her first non-CO$ boyfriend either.

  9. Suze says:

    I fervently hope this is true. I hope she found love with a non-Scientologist, I hope her mother was at the wedding and I hope in the future the crazed world of Tom Cruise is but a distant and infrequent visitor in her life.

  10. Mayamae says:

    The article almost forgot to mention she was adopted, but nope! Even after twenty-two years she’s still just the adopted daughter. I’m sure the media will put it in her eulogy. She looked really cute in her selfie. I’m not surprised Connor didn’t show. He seems to have grown into an asshole just like his father.

    • Suze says:

      Why is that? It’s insane really. The media needs to drop all these labels.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yeah that drives me batty, I am 35 and adopted at birth and some family members still referred to me as adopted Zapp, I have even had people tell me that having adopted children is “not the same” as your own “real” children. Long story short people are morons.

      • Jayna says:

        That’s awful.

        And I have been disgusted for a long time when these publications always refer to the children of celebrities as adopted, no matter how many years goes by. It’s disgusting to me. They are their children. That’s the title, period.

      • Mich says:

        I’ve had people tell me the same – and I have adopted children. It is infuriating. How dare they insinuate that they love their children more than I love mine.

      • Eleonor says:

        Adopted child here too.
        My mum was told, once, long ago, if she was feeling the motherhood like “real mothers do”.
        Some people should just shut their freaking mouth. FFS.

    • Mayamae says:

      I’m adopted and have a huge extended family. I’m never referred to as the adopted one, and some of my cousins don’t know or have even forgotten. Marie Osmond is pretty loopy, but she refuses to categorize her children to the press. When asked which are adopted, she answers “I’ve forgotten”.

    • Colette says:

      When Bob Hope died they referred to his son as his adopted son.The man was about 70 years old.

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, you would think after the adoption announcement things would settle into just daughter or son. Why do journalists keep doing that? Why does it matter to them so much?

    • (Original, not CDAN) Violet says:

      I noticed that, too. Bugs the hell out of me. Isabella is Tom and Nicole’s daughter, full stop.

    • Crumpet says:

      That always strikes me as odd too. Why is this relevant?

  11. saras says:

    He is a sucio- scientologist dad so no surprise he does not do anything nice unless they fall in line with his cult…

    • JenniferJustice says:

      This has nothing to do with anything, but I just have to say it — Tom looks like a ridiculous joke! That stupid guffaw grin with those obvious fake teeth….just uggghhhhhhhhhh!!!

      • Belle Epoch says:

        JENNIFERJ totally agree. He has two faces: fake smile/joy and fake serious/intelligent. He’s overacting.

      • CatJ says:

        And even with the fake teeeth, they don’t line up, the center of his top lip is in line with one front tooth, and it looks so strange….. but, that’s what he is…. I wonder if Isabella will continue her scientology, try to convert her new husband…. hmmmmm

      • Jaded says:

        He may have been born with a genetic disorder that, in mild cases, can cause extremely misaligned teeth with one centre tooth that can’t be realigned. Google some of his teen photos and his teeth are a mess and he had to have major dental work done. In a more serious case it can cause facial deformities and mental retardation, and if a woman is carrying a fetus with the gene she will often miscarry – something that happened twice to Nicole. Hence the whispers that Tom isn’t really Suri’s father, that a turkey baster of someone else’s “seed” (*coughTommyDaviscough*) was used. Katie may have been told it was Tom’s but when she found out it wasn’t, she threatened to go public if he didn’t agree to a quick and quiet divorce.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Found it! Thanks, JADED

        if a fetus does not develop correctly bilaterally that would be a HUGE deal. This article points out that the frontal lobes are affected (critical thinking skills… ahem).

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I get that it’s not his fault if he wasn’t born with perfectly symmetical teeth, but it’s the WAY he smiles and acts that I find irritating. He doesn’t know how to just be normal. Why are there no pictures of him just sort of smiling – you know – subtle smile? All pics are either smiling like a horse (hearing his “Ha Ha!!!” in my head) or not smiling at all and looking all intense. He can’t stop acting.

      • Crumpet says:

        Nah, he doesn’t have a disorder. He was just born without one incisor. It is actually quite common.

      • SusanneToo says:

        It’s the swollen face that caught my eye. Not good.

      • Bridget says:

        Are the teeth fake? He had braces about a decade and a half ago. The crazy grin on the other hand, is definitely all him. Though I don’t know what’s worse, the grin or the puffy face and jet black hair.

      • Zingara says:

        “He has two faces: fake smile/joy and fake serious/intelligent. He’s overacting.” Yeeeeessss!

        Belle Epoch….. So, he’s a ham, then? Or a pig? But I really like piggies… He’s a boar. Boor. Bore. Aaahh… That’s better.

    • minority here says:

      On a separate note, Isabelle looks really good with that hair color (like her mom’s) in the top photo. She actually looks like a young, carefree woman rather than the miserable servant she was with Katie.

  12. manda says:

    I was so happy to see this! The last I heard is she followed her scientology boyfriend to the sea org. This sounds like it should be much better than that!

  13. Nancy says:

    Thumbs up to Isabella and Frances Cobain for managing to avoid the Meet the Parents moment. Isabella doesn’t have his freakish blood flowing in her body and that makes me happy. Just looking at little Suri and you just know something is brewing inside of her and it doesn’t seem good. Congrats Isabella, hope your brother escaped as well.

    • Neah23 says:

      You do know this story has a 5% chance of being real right?

      • Nancy says:

        Really? I thought everything I read on the internet was true….especially celeb gossip sites. Yeah, I know what color the sky is.

      • Neah23 says:

        I was going by the tone of your comment since your congratulating her on a marriage that most likely did happen and on escaping when we don’t know if it’s true.

      • noway says:

        Oh come on can’t we go with 25-50%, because I like this story! We believe all the crap, let me believe this one for a bit please. Hope it’s true and she is happy.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      Wow what a mean thing to say about a young child. I don’t think anything is ‘brewing’ inside of suri.

      • Tara says:

        Yeah I think Suri has an excellent chance of being her own person. Esp with $cientology, I believe it’s more nuture ( or lack thereof ) than nature.

  14. Chloe says:

    I’m so hopeful that this is true! It would be awesome if she left Scientology and was reunited with Nicole!
    Also, I love that her bridesmaids were wearing jumpsuits/pants? I hate dresses, and when I was a bridesmaid I was so uncomfortable! Not sure if jumpsuits (if that’s what these are) would be better or not, but I’m thinking they would.

  15. H says:

    It’s rumored that Tom and Connor broke ties with Isabella earlier in the year because she’d been hanging out with non-Co$ folks in London.

    If that’s true, good for her. Who needs a nut job like that for a father?

    • Colette says:

      Most of Connor’s closest friends aren’t COS including Josh Vegas,Drake Sweet.Connor is on Twitter and IG,most of the guys he hangs out with are not COS.

  16. Chelly says:

    All he concerns himself with is his celebrity status & that bullsh*t CO$. He was a controlling emotionally abusive husband & an absentee father who apparently cant give two sh*ts about Suri’s growth into a young girl bc his main focus in life is a goddamn brainwashing building. Forgive my language, CB but this man is just horrid all around & stories about him piss me off. I hope she got away from that lunacy, as well as her brother. Anyone who chooses this “religion” over their children need not have any

    • Neah23 says:

      He didn’t seem to care about his two older kids ether when they were growing up. Tom sister is the one who raised them after the split with Nicole. He spent most of his time away filming or playing happy family with Katie and Suri, while Isabella and Connor said in LA.

  17. Colette says:

    What difference does it make if she married a non Scientologist? Tom Cruise married Katie and Nicole,they were non Scientologist yet he is still a Scientologist.What am I missing?

    • Mayamae says:

      Nicole and Katie were involved with CO$. They went through the auditing and brainwashing. With Katie, Tom publically renounced her Catholicism and named her a Scientologist.

      • lucy2 says:

        I don’t believe Nicole ever went full into it – she and Tom were together during a time he’d drifted away from it, and when they pulled him back in, they broke up the marriage.

    • Mich says:

      I don’t mean this to sound rude but do you really know so little about Scientology?

      • Luce says:

        Pretty sure Collette is a CO$ responder. They always have people whose sole focus is to debunk any negative Cruise-CO$ press.

    • Bridget says:

      Cults don’t like it when you keep your outside connections.

  18. megan says:

    Now this makes me wonder if this is why Nicole took a job in London…trying to reestablish relationships with her children?

    • Mayamae says:

      I don’t know, but I’m so glad that people are realizing she didn’t just abandon her oldest children. If she had attacked Tom hardcore years ago, she may have alienated them for a lifetime.

      • Neah23 says:

        This !!!!!

      • Jaded says:

        I think if she had attacked Tom Co$ would have released her audit tapes and humiliated her publicly. He would have ruined her without a shred of guilt or compassion.

      • Betsy says:

        I think anyone who knows even the barest facts of Scientology has guessed that she did not absent herself by choice.

      • Crumpet says:

        Parents should never speak ill of exes, it is damaging to children. That is why she never talked about it. She is a smart lady with a good head on her shoulders.

      • Bridget says:

        At the time of Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman’s split, it was gearing up to get ugly. He was disputing their breakup date, Anthony Pellicano was tapping Nicole’s phone, and of course don’t forget that humiliating and painful incident where it turned out that Nicole was pregnant and miscarried as they were splitting up (it did indeed turn out to be Tom’s baby). She may not have believed that Isabella and Connor would be alienated from her. This was also probably the most powerful that Tom Cruise and $cientology were. Is it any real wonder that she didn’t buckle down for a fight?

  19. anne_000 says:

    “… both children decided to live with their father.”

    Or maybe it was easier than to fight over Co$.

    I’m glad she married a non-Co$. And just rub salt in the wound, I hope he’s a staunch Roman Catholic.

    But I hope Cruise doesn’t sic Co$ spies on them.

  20. GreenieWeenie says:

    do you think he ever looks around and absorbs the fact that his religion has pushed him away from virtually everyone in his immediate family, besides his son?

    • jwoolman says:

      He might lose his son if Conner ever figures out that being the heir apparent to the Scientology Empire isn’t quite the solid gig he thought.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      I don’t think he truly loves his children the way we do. I think they are props to him.

    • Bridget says:

      It hasn’t, though. He’s still close with his mom and sister. And don’t forget, that $ci folks have convinced him that he’s SPECIAL that he has a PURPOSE. He’s the #2 in their Church for goodness sake.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      He *might* wonder about this when he runs out of assets to sell and money to donate to his “church.” We’ll see how much Co$ loves him then.

  21. jess says:

    That’s great parenting right there Nicole, supporting your daughter even you know this won’t last a year, but you do it anyway to upset Tom because he will be paying for this mess

  22. Maum says:

    What does that even mean Jess? How will Tom be paying for anything? It’s not like he’s actively involved in his kids’ lives.

    Btw am I crazy or does Bella look a hell of a lot like Nicole on the header picture? I know there have been a lot of conspiracy theories about her bio parents…

    • jess says:

      Bella and Connor lifestyle is paid by Tom.

      And yes I agree Bella looks like Nicole, if you check a picture of Nicole when she was a child you will see the clear resemblance.

  23. iheartgossip says:

    I really, really hope she did marry someone outside of ‘Tology. And why would Tommy Gurl make an appearance? He doesn’t have 1 flying ‘F’ to give about his children.

  24. Sochan says:

    Sort of off-topic: I watched “Going Clear” last night. I highly recommend it. I actually cried in a couple of places. I shuddered more often than cried, though. This cult is terrifying.

    • Jayna says:

      It was fantastic. I was horrified when they showed what they believed with the aliens and all that. It was so absurd and I couldn’t believe that people buy that bizarre story after they find out and stay. I will have to watch it again, because I’ve forgotten parts of it. The leader was a certifiable nut and scammer and created a religion to make money.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      Check out Tony Ortega’s website at The more I read about this “church” and “religion,” the more furious I am that the IRS buckled and granted them tax-exempt status. It is a sick, destructive cult which ruins lives and engages in all kinds of illegal and immoral activities.

  25. Jayna says:

    ‘Tom Cruise did not go to his daughter’s wedding, but we found out he was nobody special, because none of the parents — on either side — were invited. There are reports Tom snubbed 22-year-old Bella, who married Max Parker last month. Sources connected with Tom and Bella tell TMZ, she and Max wanted a super small wedding in London with a few friends and that was it … no parents were invited.
    We’re told Tom was not only cool with the decision, he footed the bill for the wedding and party at the fancy schmancy Dorchester hotel.
    Some media reports suggest Tom stayed away because Max is not a Scientologist. We’re told that was never an issue. We’re told Tom and Max get along well … Max and Bella spent Thanksgiving and XMAS with Tom.’

    I know im late to the party here, but I was in NYC over the weekend, and walked right by the Scientology Centre. I was seeing “Finding Neverland” (it’s great go see it!) and the theater was right next to the SC. I really wanted to go inside and give those crazies a piece of my mind. My sisters wouldn’t let me, sadly(they didn’t want the crazies after me) But knowing what destruction they’ve caused to so many people just made me angry. I did look in the window though. The place looked fairly empty other than the receptionist.
