Who Is Connor Cruise's Fiancé? New Details About Silvia — And Why Nicole Kidman Is Banned From Their Wedding

Connor Cruise, the adopted son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman is all grown up and marrying his Italian girlfriend Silvia. It should be a happy day for the whole family, except ... reportedly, Tom Cruise has barred his ex-wife and Connor's mother Nicole Kidman from attending the wedding!

Connor is a Scientologist like his father and Nicole is not a Scientologist, and, well, Scientologists don't like to fraternize with people who do not believe in their rhetoric. A source told Radar: “Tom is behind this and what he wants is as good as law. Tom made the call and Connor followed.” Who is Connor Cruise's fiancé?

1. A Scientology Princess

Connor's bride to be Silvia is from a family of Scientologists who moved from Italy, to Clearwater, Florida where Scientology's headquarters are. That is where she met and fell in love with 24-year-old Connor, a former DJ who now spends his time deep sea fishing. Insiders say that Tom Cruise "adores" his future daughter-in-law and is thrilled Connor is marrying a fellow Scientologist.

2. A "Supressive Person" 

It isn't THAT suprising because according to former Scientologist Leah Remini's book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Nicole was slapped with the label "suppressive person" or "SP" — more on that definition below — by the controverisal church after she left its ranks. Reportedly, Nicole blames Scientology for ruining her marriage to Tom. The Insider told Radar: "First, Tom would never even consider inviting Nicole to Connor's wedding because she's considered a 'suppressive person' by the church — and, second, he doesn't want her there."

3. Nicole wasn't at Isabella's wedding, either

Along with adopted kids Connor and Isabella Cruise, Nicole is mom to 10-year-old Sunday Rose and 8-year-old Faith Margaret with Keith Urban. She did not attend the 2015 London wedding of her daughter Isabella to Max Parker. Tom Cruise paid for the wedding — but he didn't attend, either.

4. Is there a rift between Nicole and her kids with Tom Cruise?

Connor and Isabella Cruise have followed in their father's footsteps and chosen to be Scientologists. Nicole Kidman is a devout Catholic who reportedly loathes her ex-husband's religion. For years it has been reported that Kidman is estranged from Connor and Isabella. She has never confirmed that and keeps her relationships with all of her children private. Regarding Connor and Isabella's choices to be Scientologists, Kidman has said: "They have made the choice to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them.” Bella has refuted the rumors that she and her brother are estranged from their famous mother, saying: "Of course we talk, they're my parents. Anyone who says otherwise is full of s**t." Connor has said: “I don’t care what people say, I know that me and Mum are solid. I love her a lot. My family means everything.”

5. What is a suppressive person?

According to The Church of Scientology’s official website, a suppressive person is "also known as the Anti-Social Personality. Within this category one finds Napoleon, Hitler, the unrepentant killer and the drug lord. But if such are easily spotted, if only from the bodies they leave in their wake, Anti-Social Personalities also commonly exist in current life and often go undetected. The basic reason the Suppressive Person behaves as he or she does lies in a hidden terror of others. To such a person every other being is an enemy, an enemy to be covertly or overtly destroyed. The fixation is that survival itself depends on “keeping others down” or “keeping people ignorant.” If anyone were to promise to make others stronger or brighter, the Suppressive Person would suffer the utmost agony. 

Because of this, the Suppressive Person seeks to upset, continuously undermine, spread bad news about and denigrate betterment activities and groups. Thus the Anti-Social Personality is also against what Scientology is about — helping people become more able and improving conditions in society. As anyone can think of many examples of a Suppressive Person, this concept is not limited to Scientology. However, when such a person is connected to Scientology, for the good of the Church and the individuals in it, such a person is officially labeled a Suppressive Person so that others will know not to associate with them...

...When someone has been expelled from the religion, that person loses both his or her fellowship with the Church as well as with other Scientologists. The condition lasts until they have been restored to good standing. Once the person has been restored to good standing, the prohibition against fellowship with other Scientologists is lifted. Similar practices have been part of religious communities for thousands of years and have been recognized by courts of law as a fundamental right."
