The revelation that Tom Cruise‘s daughter’s name was removed from his annual Christmas card has shocked many. Brooke Shields, a longtime friend of Cruise, recently revealed the moment she realized Suri had been cut from the card. Shields explained that she had been on the list for a good 10 years and always received the card and a delicious coconut bundt cake from Doan’s Bakery every holiday season.
Why was Tom Cruise’s Daughter’s Name Removed From Christmas Card?
The card used to be from Cruise, Suri, and her mother, but then it was just Cruise and eventually stopped coming altogether. Shields speculates that she was removed from the list after Cruise invited her to his wedding, but she’s not certain. She just knows she wants back on that cake list.
This news has left many wondering why Cruise would exclude his daughter from his annual Christmas card. Cruise and his ex-wife, Katie Holmes, have always been private about their relationship with their daughter, who was born in 2006. There have been rumors that Cruise’s involvement with Scientology has caused a rift between him and his daughter, but nothing has been confirmed.
Brooke Shields Did Not Address the Reason
Shields did not address the reason behind the exclusion, but she did mention a tiff she had with Cruise back in 2006. The actress had released a book about her struggles with postpartum depression and how antidepressants had helped her through it. Cruise, who is a known opponent of psychiatric drugs, took a dig at Shields in an interview with Matt Lauer, calling the drugs “dangerous.”
Whatever the reason for the exclusion, it’s clear that there’s some tension between Cruise and his daughter. It’s a shame that Suri is missing out on the joy of receiving a Christmas card from her father every year, but hopefully, they can work through whatever issues they may have and reconcile their relationship. Until then, we’ll all be left wondering what happened to cause the exclusion of Suri from the Christmas card list.
