Isabella Cruise’s wedding story changes: Tom paid & Nicole Kidman was banned?

Yesterday, we heard about the alleged marriage of Isabella Cruise to Max Parker in a low-key ceremony. The details were murky, but the story was that Bella maybe married a non-Scientologist, and Tom did not attend the ceremony, but Nicole Kidman did. Perhaps a victory cheer was premature, for new details make it clear that Bella won’t be heading towards suppressive person land anytime soon.

Now we’re hearing a tweaked tale of events. TMZ immediately spoke to a Tom-friendly source who said Isabella did not invite either of her parents to the ceremony, and Tom was totally “cool” with it. He even paid for the whole event at the Dorchester hotel, and he (allegedly) doesn’t care whether or not Bella’s new husband runs with Xenu. Yet another take comes from Page Six, which says Isabella really did snub Nicole, and the ceremony was totally a CO$ one that Tom did attend:

Nicole Kidman was not invited to daughter Isabella Cruise’s wedding last month, and the Australian actress had no idea the nuptials – a secret Scientology ceremony — were even happening.

We’re told devout Scientologist and proud father-of-the-bride Tom Cruise did attend the wedding at London’s Dorchester Hotel, despite reports he wasn’t there, and sources tell Page Six the date and location were arranged so the star could attend.

“The wedding was a Scientology ceremony,” a source familiar with the family told Page Six. “Nicole wasn’t there – she didn’t even know about it at all.”

We hear that Cruise had been in Europe before the wedding on Sept. 18, and “it was all arranged so he would be there, which he was.”

[From Page Six]

Ughhh, this is so messed up. This third version of events is probably how the wedding actually went down. The Australian tabloid we heard from in yesterday’s story probably got ahold of the pictures and framed a Kidman-friendly tale because she’s a local. Oh well. I guess it was fun to pretend for a day that Bella got away from the cult and reestablished a relationship with her mom. Tom has a firm grip on Bella, and it will stay that way because this is what happens when one of Tom’s kids is no longer a Scientologist.

    Isabella don’t disrespect your great beloved dad love him like he has loved you. Happy married life gal

    Also don’t take marriage advise from your dad.

    • Mia4S says:

      You mean the way her father disrespected her mother and helped destroy that relationship? He’s not a loving person in the least.

      My guess is we still don’t have the real story. This is Tiny’s PR at work, because appearing to be a good father is more important to him than actually being a good father.

      She’s doomed honestly. Neither kid has a proper education, neither appears to have any talent, so they have to live off Daddy’s money. You can’t break free if that’s the situation you’re in.

      • Luce says:

        Alienating your older kids from their mom AND disassociating from his youngest — not a loving dad.

    • Insomniac says:

      But disrespecting Mom is totally fine?

      • aims says:

        Right . It’s totally fine to disrespect your mother? It would take an act of God to keep me away from my daughter’s wedding. What they did to Nicole regarding her kids is awful.

  2. Palar says:

    I’m sad about this.

  3. Serenity now says:

    Perhaps having either parent there would create a media storm. Bella doesn’t seem to be interested in the limelight.
    I hope one day the truth about Nicole’s relationship with her two oldest children comes out. Such an evil religious institution to destroy family relationships like Scientology has. Read the article on the Masterson kids and their dad (former Scientology member)

  4. NewWester says:

    The more I read about Tom Cruise, the less I like him. The way he has been staying out of his youngest child’s life and now this story. This is going to come back and bite him hard one day.

    • Jules says:

      You could not pay me to watch one of his movies…………..

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      After everything that has been revealed about CO$ I am baffled that his films do so well at the box office, are people so desperate to be entertained that they can turn a blind eye to his benefiting from slave labour.

  5. Jayna says:

    What is this guy getting into? He’s not a Scientologist. It probably won’t affect him, the marriage. But if they have children, that’s a whole other story. The chances of this marriage failing are 50/50. So any children might become estranged from him. They probably didn’t invite family because his parents don’t approve. How do they not invite their little sister without it being a big gossip rag frenzy? She might get along with Nicole on a distant basis but it would make her ill at ease on her wedding day with her Scientology wedding. So they just decided to nix family, even Connor. Given all the messy circumstances, it was probably best not to deal with any of it. Of course, best would be to get out of the crazy cult.

    Mess, mess, mess.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I always thought Isabella and Connor were pretty close…It seems stranger to me that he wasn’t there than either of her parents….

    • Katydid20 says:

      I’m more surprised that she was allowed (?) to marry a non-scientologist. Everything I’ve ever read about Isabella was that she was pretty deep into the church…….surprised she actually met someone who wasn’t a scientologist, and married him.

      • Luce says:

        Yeah, it may be wishful thinking, but I bet the truth lies somewhere in the middle. This is prototypical CO$/Cruise-bots at their PR best, and Connor’s absence, Cruise’s absence regardless of what his absurd “close sources” say, and the groom’s non-CO$ background all point to things that don’t quite add up with this version either.

  6. Nancy says:

    Two days, two stories. Isn’t it always your side, their side and somewhere in the middle, the truth?

  7. OrigialTessa says:

    Tom’s sources have lied before, particularly about the status of his relationships with his kids…

  8. MrsBPitt says:

    I know most people hate conspiracy theories, but, here is mine, lol…..I think (in that picture of Isabella above) that she has some similarity in features to Nicole. And, I’ve always thought, that Connor had features similar to Tom. I think they may have “Frankensteined” the kids, by mixing up their DNA with someone else’s. Either Hubbards, or Miscavege, etc. because I think both Nicole and Tom had trouble in the baby making area! I know, It’s a crazy idea, but, then again, it’s a crazy cult!

    • Ninks says:

      They’re both adopted, aren’t they? So DNA match to either parent?

    • FuefinaWG says:

      @MrsBPitt: I was just thinking the same thing! I see a little bit of Nicole in Isabella and a bit of Tom in Connor.
      If Isabella’s husband is not in COS isn’t he considered a suppressive person?

      • CharlotteCharlotte says:

        If her husband isn’t a member, then he’s a PTS (potential trouble source). Isabella will be told to “handle” him. There will be a lot of pressure to either keep him quiet, or convert him. Being TC’s daughter means she’s never faced the same pressures as other Co$ kids from other members, but she’s still under a lot pressure from her insanely devoted, insanely insane dad.
        If Bella had left the cult, that would be a reason why TC didn’t show up. She’d probably be spared the public shaming and websites devoted to smearing her character, but you’d never see her and TC together again.

        And never trust anything that comes from TC’s camp. They don’t have one iota of pause about lying. They will say anything to put a positive spin on Tom and Co$.
        Now I need to check The Underground Bunker because I’m sure people in there know what’s actually going on.

  9. Talie says:

    I feel bad for this girl. She seemingly has no real education and has no real job. I don’t know what to think…good for Katie Holmes for choosing her kid over her career. It’ll be worth it in the long run.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Yeah, poor, little rich girl! I’m kidding! I totally get what you are saying…she seems to have no direction in life, but at least (unless her daddy cuts her off) she won’t be starving or homeless anytime soon!

    • Naya says:

      @Talie what do you mean? Shes a 22 year old trained hairdresser. Very much at the beginning of her career or are you suggesting that that isnt a meaningful career? And by the way, 1) Katie IS a working mother 2) stay at home mothers are known to raise duds for human beings too and 3) Nicoles career didnt come in the way of mothering, the woman is the ultimate victim of parental allienation.

      • Jessiee says:

        Naya, is it? I think you’d better evaluate your comment that “stay at home moms are known to raise duds as children” or however you put it. That’s such a ridiculous & massive generalization that has no basis in fact that I can’t believe anyone would think it’s a legitimate statement. Really, now. Something tells me Einstein’s mother, Edison’s mother, Richard Feynman’s mother, Elizabeth Warren’s mother, Steve Jobs’s mother, MY MOTHER, AND I, and ANY of the mothers of the writers here OR THE WRITERS THEMSELVES — would take issue with your stupid comment. I can assure you none of us have raised duds.

      • Neah23 says:

        @ Jessiee

        How is Naya making a “massive generalization” read the comment against they are very clearly say that working mom as well as stay at mom can raise lazy kids with no direction in life.

        Unless you feel that only working mothers keep kids turn out no direction in life?

      • Luce says:

        I do think Jesssiee missed the “too” part of Naya’s comment, which wasn’t slanderous to SAHMs. Regardless, I do think Nicole was part of parental alienation, but I also think Katie Holmes did put her child first when Nicole gave up the fight or never seemed to do so. It’s well known that NK wasn’t willing to let CO$ expose her auditing sessions. I don’t blame her for the alienation, but with her financial resources and celebrity, it seems she could have done what KH did as well were she willing to risk career. Yes, I know that Tom Cruise was king of Hollywood at the time, and yes, she would have probably lost work, but still, she would have been protected from harm by publicly fighting for the kids. I don’t think that’s indicative of being SAHM or career–mom. I’m a career mom, and I love my career, but I would be willing to shuck corn on the side of the road or worse before I would give up fighting for my children.

  10. Tara says:

    Poor girl being raised in that evil cult. In the Scientology documentary a man who used to be in the church admitted that he was hired to break Tom and Nicole up. The church hated Nicole because she wasn’t in the religion and Tom was less into it when he was with her.

  11. The Original G says:

    Meh. I don’t believe any of these stories. Time will tell.

  12. dibba says:

    SNAFU in Cruise family

  13. Hannah says:

    The rumour mill in UK is that Nicole and Isabelle spent quite a bit of time together in UK recently. I can’t remember for the life of me where I read that.

  14. funcakes says:

    The story was that both set of parents were not invited. It might be that Isabel wanted to avoid drama. Its her day after all.
    I’m sure Miscavage is giving Tom instructions now that the cult is under a microscope.

  15. Colette says: claims Tom wasn’t there.They also say she started dating her husband this year(2015).Yet Tom spent last Thanksgiving and Christmas with her and her husband.I find that odd. I guess they could have been platonic friends last year when they spent the holidays with Tom.Personally I think it’s a web of lies.

    • Neah23 says:

      Yes somthing defiantly up, I wonder what went down that someone flooding the media with all of these mix message stories.

  16. Crumpet says:

    i loved Nicole’s natural curls. Why has she obliterated them? They made her look so exotic.

  17. DiamondGirl says:

    Nicole doesn’t say much about her older kids to keep their privacy, so if she was there, she won’t declare it to the world.

    Even when they were growing up, she didn’t let them be photographed.

    • Justaposter says:

      True. And then he troted out Suri like she was a show pony.

      I often wondered what her and Conner thought about that.

  18. kri says:

    Co$=vile cult. What is that tatoo on Bella’s arm?

  19. Pandy says:

    Ah who cares really? She’s set for life as long as she toes daddy’s line … and I do believe Tom paid for the wedding. A hairdresser cant afford a Dorchester wedding.

    • Neah23 says:

      If it’s true and she is married her mom can afford it and Tom money goes to church/cult

  20. captain says:

    I just can’t get over how BEAUTIFUL and head over heels in love these two were. I probably never will, I loved them together. Loved them.
