Nicole Kidman and her estranged daughter, Isabella Cruise, have reportedly shared an emotional reunion in London, just under a year after Isabella secretly wed British IT specialist Max Parker.

The 49-year-old has been estranged from her two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise, 54, ever since their divorce in 2001.

At the time, it was rumoured that Isabella, 23, and son Connor, 21, had limited contact with their mother, as they were still highly involved in the Church of Scientology. And as Nicole broke away from the church following the divorce, she was said to have been labelled a ‘suppressive person’, who Scientologists are to avoid all contact with.

‘The number one rule in Scientology is that celebrities get to break all the rules and if Isabella wanted to see her mum, then that’s fine,’ says Scientology expert, Tony Ortega.

‘Isabella did marry a non-Scientologist, and if it’s true that she saw her mum Nicole, I can understand why some people would look at her reunion as evidence that she’s edging away from the church. If she wasn’t a celebrity, she would probably not be allowed to see her mum who left the church, because she would be considered a suppressive person,’ he continued.

According to an insider, Nicole and Isabella shared a tearful reunion in London.

‘It was a very emotional moment for all of them, especially Nicole,’ the insider tells. ‘It didn’t take long for her to burst into tears, and Bella soon followed.’

‘Nic has been trying to build bridges with Bella since the start of the year,’ they added. ‘Nicole took an instant liking to Max and could see that he and Bella get on really well.’

Wonderful news for the mother-daughter duo!
