Tom Cruise hasn’t seen daughter Suri for years, according to a new report in UsWeekly.
The magazine, quoting an anonymous source, alleges that the Hollywood star is allowed to visit the 12-year-old up to 10 days a month but ‘chooses not to because she is not a Scientologist.’
Cruise and third wife Katie Holmes divorced in 2012 after six years of marriage with the actress being granted primary custody of their daughter.

Cruise has not been photographed with Suri since 2013, the magazine article noted.
He has been a devotee of Scientology for decades after being introduced to the organization by first wife Mimi Rogers. Following his divorce from Rogers in 1990, he married Nicole Kidman.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Tom and Katie for comment.
Last month, former Scientologist Leah Remini, who was a guest at Cruise and Holmes’s wedding in Italy in 2006, claimed that the actress is not allowed to have a meal with her because it might cause her to lose custody of Suri.
‘We used to be close friends,’ Remini said in an interview with LaPalme magazine. ‘It’s quite sick, really.’

In response to Remini’s claims, The Church of Scientology issued a statement.
Their response read: ‘Ms. Remini’s ridiculous rants are unending and the myths and tales she and her co-producer spread are grown more bizarre by the day…
‘They hire producers to rehash tired, preposterous myths invented and spread by the same handful of former Scientologists motivated by greed and anger’.
