Nicole Kidman has been told not to attend her son’s wedding by her ex-husband due to their ongoing disagreement over Scientology…

Australian actress Nicole Kidman has been ‘banned’ from attending her son’s wedding by ex-husband Tom Cruise UK newspaper The Sun reports. Her son Connor, 24, is set to marry his girlfriend in a Scientology ceremony but Tom has asked that Nicole not attend due to their ongoing disagreement over the religion.

A Difficult Separation

When Nicole and Tom split back in 2001 after eleven years of marriage, both children opted to live with their father and have maintained a close relationship with him ever since. They are also devout Scientologists and active members of the church. Nicole has been forced to keep her distance from both Connor and Isabella as Tom believes she is a bad influence. “Tom is behind this and what he wants is as good as law. Tom made the call and Connor followed,” an insider told Radar.”First, Tom would never even consider inviting Nicole to Connor’s wedding because she is considered a ‘suppressive person’ by the church, and second, he doesn’t want her there.” Nicole also missed daughter Isabella’s wedding in London back in 2015 and has implied that Scientology is to blame for the end of her marriage and the strained relationship she has with her two adopted children. “They are able to make her own decisions,” she told Who magazine. “They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them.”


All Grown Up

Although Isabella and Connor are now adults capable of making their own decisions and have every right to decide who attends their wedding, we can’t help but feel sorry for Nicole. Divorce is never easy, and she has been faced with the hurt of both her adopted children choosing to live with their father.

We definitely think Tom could have handled this situation with a little more sensitivity and understanding…

Do you think Tom was wrong to ‘ban’ Nicole from attending her children’s weddings? Share your thoughts in the comments.

  • What an awful thing for any parent to go through.


  • Such a pity that Nicole and Tom Cruise were ever a couple – his sect and he beliefs were never going to be aligned. The horrible part is that the two adopted children have to bein the limelight over this.


  • I have never liked Tom Cruise. He is just displaying more of his controlling attitude and behaviour here and disrespectful manner.


  • Not that I am a huge fan of Nicole Kidman, but Tom cruise has lost the plot since joining what sounds like a cult! The decision of whom should go or not go to their childrens wedding should soley rely on the children themselves. totally discusted on reading this news!


  • I think Tom is such an a**hole. I’m sure Nicole wouldn’t do anything to ruin her child’s wedding. You can’t shut off the love you have for your children. I think Tom has probably done his best to turn their children against Nicole.


  • I’m surprised their son didn’t speak up and invite her. I’d be livid if it was me and one if my parents banned the other from attending my own wedding and it should be him having the final say, not his dad.. That cult brainwashed its members.


  • This is what happens in a cult – it is all about control. She didn’t let him control her in the end – good on her for getting out but sad that she couldn’t bring her children.


  • how dare any parent ban another parent from their childs wedding or any other event
    Tom Cruise is being manipulative nasty and extremely childish and hurting his children and their mother in the process of just wanting to get his own way and keep control over everyone
    this is disgusting behaviour on his part and has been done with no real care or love for his children and their wellbeing
    regardless of how he feels about Nicole or anyone else he has absolutely NO RIGHT to behave in this manner
    After all its his childrens special day not his and they should have the right to choose guests at their own wedding
    think its definitely way past time Tom Cruise grew up and stopped being so childish


  • Tom is wrong on so many levels that have clearly been demonstrated with the ending of two marriages due to Scientology. Unfortunately, he has a stranglehold on his two eldest children. I really feel for Nicole.


  • No one should be excluded from their child’s wedding unless ther child wishes it to be that way.


  • Watch the documentary “Scientology the aftermath” (currently showing on Vice or SBS on demand) and you will understand why she is not allowed to her children’s weddings. It is very complex but basically anyone involved with Scientology shun any family members who are not. It would not be Nicoles choice not to attend.


  • I watch ‘TopGun’ and I think, what the heck went wrong with this guy….
    I’ve never understood Scientology so cant say why they can’t all just let it go and get along but it’s obviously a personal family issue


  • Yes Tom is wrong, but in the end it’s Connors decision as he is an adult.


  • Such a sad strange family dynamic. Tom keeps Nicole away from the kids,yet he has no contact with Suki for years.


  • very sad but from what I have read about scientology they really don’t make their own decisions, though they are adults the church (and their father) really do seem to control their lives and decisions
