She’s moved out of the family home – now Tom Cruise’s daughter Isabella has plans to move in with her mum Nicole Kidman.
According to new reports, Isabella, 17, longs for a low-key life with Nicole, 43, and stepdad Keith Urban, 42, in Nashville, Tennessee.
‘When her parents divorced, [Isabella] chose to stay with her dad because that was the only life she knew,’ a source tells UK Grazia.
‘But over the years, she’s become closer to Nicole. They talk on the phone every day. Katie does her best to bond with Isabella, but can never be as close as Nicole. There is friction.’
Another insider tells In Touch: ‘Tom is caught in the middle, as Bella is clashing with Katie because of her bond with Nicole. Bella is saying she’s moving in with Nicole as soon as she can.’
But Tom is furious the move could draw the teenager away from Scientology.
‘Katie and Tom are protesting Bella moving in with Nicole because Bella will likely stop her Scientology studies,’ says the insider, who adds that Nicole is not a follower.
These claims follow New Idea’s report that Isabella was becoming restless.
Having moved out to live with a family friend, she was keen to forge a career as a make-up artist, without her father’s help.
‘She’s keen for her independence,’ a source told New Idea at the time.
But Isabella’s motivation to ditch LA may also be driven by a desire to spend time with her young sister Sunday Rose, Nicole and Keith’s two-year-old.
‘Sunday now wears Bella’s pearl bracelet,’ her mum tells People, describing it as ‘a tiny seed-pearl bracelet that Bella had when she was 18 months’.
She adds: ‘I [tell her]: “That’s your big sister Bella’s bracelet.”’
And it seems Nicole would welcome her eldest daughter with open arms.
‘My priority is very much keeping my family together and not being away from them,’ she says.
