How Nicole Kidman Feels About Her Kids Being Scientologists

In an interview with Who, Nicole Kidman spoke about her relationship to her oldest children, Isabella and Connor, who she adopted in the '90s with her ex-hubby Tom Cruise.

"SP" stands for "Suppressive Person" and is a term reportedly given to former members that appears to indicate they have been "cut off" from their families, the Mail Online reports.

When Kidman and Cruise divorced in 2001 after a decade of marriage, Bella, 25, and Connor, 23, chose to live with their father in LA, and were raised to practise Scientology just like their dad.

In September past year, the Eyes Wide Shut star sparked backlash at the Emmy Awards after only mentioning Sunday and Faith, her daughters with now-husband Kieth Urban, and again in January during her Golden Globes acceptance speech.

It was a documentary in 2015 that delved into the hidden life of Scientology that first suggested the religion was behind the wedge between the Big Little Lies star and her older kids. The actor is a very high-profile Scientologist, but it's something Nicole very rarely speaks in public about.

A total of 27 people have so far been dismissed as potential jurors, out of almost 60 who have been questioned. The prosecution objected and the defense argued he should stay, but Cogan dismissed him.

She added, "I think that's so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family - I believe it's wrong". Leah claimed in her book that Isabella had referred to her mom Nicole as an SP, though the church denied the allegations.

When the actor pair made a decision to file for divorce after 11 years of marriage back in 2001, the children chose to live with their dad! "She was declared an SP and left the church, and she's doing OK". Just remember Nicole Kidman.

The closest Kidman had come to talking about her reported estrangement from Connor and Isabella was in 2016 when she was promoting the film Lion, in which she plays an adoptive mother. "This movie is a love letter to my children", she told Town & Country magazine.

"From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies", Kidman told Marie Claire magazine in 2007. "I would work, but I was still very much cocooned".

'When I say "protection", there is nearly like a barrier.
