Tom Cruise 'Bans' Ex-Wife Nicole Kidman From Son's Wedding

Tom Cruise has reportedly banned ex-wife Nicole Kidman from their son's wedding.

The 24-year-old Connor Cruise will tie the knot with his Italian girlfriend in a Scientology ceremony but his dad has reportedly refused to let his former spouse attend.

According to reports, a source told told RadarOnline: "Tom is behind this and what he wants is as good as law. Tom made the call and Connor followed."

The insider told the news outlet that Connor 'worships the ground his father walks on' and wouldn't ever defy his wishes.

Cruise and Kidman got hitched in 1990, later adopting two children, Connor and the now 26-year-old Isabella - whose wedding she also missed back in 2015 - but after the A-list couple split Cruise claimed custody of their kids.

The source reportedly went on to say: "First, Tom would never even consider inviting Nicole to Connor's wedding because she's considered a 'suppressive person' by the church - and, second, he doesn't want her there."

This shocking news comes after former follower, Leah Remini, opened up about her time within Scientology, claiming Cruise is considered to be a 'deity' by many of its followers.

The 48-year-old said: "Scientologists are told that Tom Cruise is saving the world single-handedly, so he is considered a deity within Scientology. He is second to David Miscavige - the savior of the free world. Tom is even called 'Mister Cruise' by staff members."

She claimed the hierarchy within the church try and make sure the actor never sees anything negative about the religion.

She added: "Scientology goes to great lengths to not allow Tom to see anything disparaging about Scientology. They'll go so far as, if he's going to walk a certain place, they'll make sure there are no magazines that are anti-Scientology, so he can't see that."

Both Connor and Isabella followed in their dad's footsteps as practising Scientologiest and Isabella reportedly claimed the cult had helped her find a 'missing piece' of her life after qualifying to be an auditor.
