Tom Cruise is allegedly leaving the Scientology religion to reconnect with his estranged daughter, according to the latest issue of Star Magazine.
Suri Cruise, 11, whose mother is actress Katie Holmes, is reported to have not seen her dad in more than four years with the religion's policy of 'disconnection' - which sees former members shunned once they leave the Church - largely to blame.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split in 2012, which saw Katie leave the strange and secretive religion.
Tom Cruise has been a vocal supporter of the religion since he joined in 1990.
A source told Star: "He has reached the breaking point, and something has to give. If he wants her back, he'll have to walk away from the church, which has been a huge part of his life, to say the least.
"Leaving Scientology would be the toughest decision he'll ever have to make! If Scientology declared open season on Tom, they could bury hum, since they've probably got all sorts of dirt on him from his audit sessions."
It's an unspoken threat, but Tom has to be aware that the church would do everything in its power to keep him from leaving.
Holmes herself doesn't have 'high hopes' that Tom will leave the church to spend time with his daughter, according to Celebrity Insider.
An insider told them: "Katie would be thrilled to see Tom leave Scientology, she would love to have him build a healthy relationship with Suri.
"It'd be a dream come true actually, but she is not expecting it. She has zero hope Tom will leave Scientology for Suri - he has made it clear many times that he is in it for life...
"People change, and they leave, so it is possible Tom will walk away, but it is very slim, and she knows it. It breaks Katie's heart Suri does not have a relationship with Tom, there is a hole in her life because of it - he's missed."
The reports are unconfirmed.
