Because of his fierce loyalty to the Church of Scientology, Tom Cruise has reportedly not seen his daughter Suri, 11, in five years, and to make things worse, Katie Holmes isn’t expecting him to re-enter their lives anytime soon. Is Cruise’s absence giving Jamie Foxx a chance to be a father figure for Holmes’ daughter?
There have been rumors that Cruise is considering leaving his religion, so he can reunite with Suri, but Holmes isn’t buying it. Even though she would love for her ex-husband and daughter to have a relationship, she doesn’t believe Cruise could ever leave Scientology for good.
“Katie would be thrilled to see Tom leave Scientology, she’d love to see him build a healthy relationship with Suri,” reveals an insider. “It would be a dream come true actually.”
There are some people who have been able to escape the clutches of Scientology, like Leah Remini, but Holmes thinks Cruise is in way too deep at this point to do the same.
The chances of him leaving are slim, and Holmes knows it.

Luckily, Holmes has Foxx in her life, and her boyfriend is stepping up to be a dad for her daughter.
The source says that Holmes has tried to be all things for Suri since Cruise has left a hole in their life, and she is doing her best to fill it. But, she is grateful to have Foxx be the father Suri needs, and the two get along great.
Foxx has two daughters from previous relationships: Corinne, 23, and Analise, 9. Holmes is reportedly close to Foxx’s girls, and she spends time with them even when he isn’t there. She is especially tight with Analise since the Dawson’s Creek alum has been in her life since she was very young.
The 39-year-old actress recently posted a picture of Suri before she attended last weekend’s Grammy Awards, where she is smiling for the camera while snow falls in the background. Holmes captioned the picture with snowflake and heart emojis.
Suri is definitely growing up, and Holmes says that she is a great girl who is doing well, and she is enjoying this time with her daughter. She added that she is not yet worried about the teenage years.
Eyewitnesses spotted Holmes cozying up to Foxx during Clive Davis’ party the night before the awards show in a rare public outing together.
They have been together for five years, but have kept their relationship quiet. Cameras first spotted them together in 2013, just a year after Katie Holmes split from Tom Cruise after a six-year marriage.
