The Engagement and the Birth of Suri
Tom famously proposed to Katie in Paris in June 2005, just two months after they started dating. The couple’s whirlwind romance continued, and in April 2006, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Suri. The birth of their daughter further solidified their relationship, and they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Italy later that year.
The Rise of Scientology
Tom had been a member of the Church of Scientology for many years, and he had introduced Katie to the religion soon after they started dating. However, it wasn’t until after they got married that Katie became more involved in the church. This led to rumors that Tom was controlling her, and there were reports that the church played a role in their split.
After five years of marriage, Tom and Katie announced their split in June 2012. The news came as a shock to many, and rumors began to circulate that their different religious beliefs had played a role in the breakup. Katie was granted sole custody of their daughter, Suri, and Tom agreed to pay her $400,000 a year until she turned 18 years old. The divorce was finalized just two weeks after it was announced, and both parties have since moved on with their lives.
Tom’s Estrangement from Suri
Following the divorce, Tom has reportedly been estranged from his daughter, Suri. The actor has not been seen in public with her in over a decade, and it’s believed that his involvement with the Church of Scientology has played a role in their estrangement. However, Katie has continued to raise their daughter alone.
