Suri Cruise misses her father Tom more and more with each year passing. The girl is 12 now, and the movie star was reportedly not at her birthday party this year either. She was heartbroken!
Some sources claim the man has not seen his daughter in at least four and a half years and continues to keep his distance despite the pre-teen being desperate to spend time with him.
That being said, he did not even visit her on her birthday.
Suri turned 12 on April 18 and reports say that while he sent her a present, he was not there for her in person.
‘Like any little girl, her greatest wish is for her father to be there, and now she has been disappointed again,’ one source shared, adding that Tom ‘has been absent for one milestone after another. That would be very painful for any child, and you ought to wonder what kind of emotional toll it is taking on Suri.
Another insider made it very clear this is not the first birthday he has missed.
‘Tom has not been there to watch Suri blow out the candles since she turned 7. It’s so sad!’
And as she gets older, she is becoming even more curious about why her father is never there for her.
She is definitely not believing her mother’s excuses for him anymore.
‘Suri has to be wondering why Tom does not come and visit. It seems like the older she gets, the more desperate she must be to see him. Now that Suri is older, [the excuses] may not fly anymore.’
At least, the actor makes sure always to send her a birthday gift.
‘Suri gets a gift from Tom on her birthday every year and this year was no exception. It isn’t something Katie talks about though, beyond saying that Tom does always come through with gifts for things like birthdays and Christmas, she is very tight-lipped.’
