Tom Cruise’s Daughter Takes Bold Step to ‘Break Ties’ with Actor

Suri is shared by Tom Cruise and his ex Katie Holmes.

After years of estrangement, Tom Cruise’s daughter Suri Cruise moved away from her father and changed her last name.

The Mirror reports that in a tribute to her mother Katie Holmes, whose middle name is Noelle, the 18-year-old has altered her name to Suri Noelle. Relationship guru Louella Alderson told the publication exclusively that the abrupt shift indicated Suri wanted to “break ties” with the Mission Impossible star.

“Changing one’s name is usually significant and can be seen as a way of asserting independence and creating a separate identity,” she said.

“Suri’s case seems like she doesn’t have a relationship with her father and hasn’t seen him in years, so the name change could be a way of symbolically breaking ties with him for good and embracing her own identity.”

For the uninitiated, after her divorce from Tom, Katie was given full custody of her daughter.

This could have affected Suri’s choice to choose her mother’s name, Louella said.

“Suri has grown up mostly with her mother, Katie Holmes, and has likely developed a strong sense of identity that may not align with her father’s beliefs and values,” Alderson said.

“She seems to be giving her maternal side top priority and demonstrating her loyalty to her mother by renaming herself Noelle.”

“This could also be a way for Suri to establish herself as her person and distance herself from the media attention that comes with being Tom Cruise’s daughter,” she said.
