15 White Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Raising Black Children
Back in the day, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman adopted an African-American boy named Connor Cruise (they also adopted his older sister, Isabella Cruise). Connor is 17 years old now and an aspiring DJ. If you’re into Celebrity drama, Connor is definitely one to watch. Here’s what a friend of the family told In Touch Weekly about Connor:
“Connor has always had a difficult relationship with his parents, and it has definitely affected him. He has broken down crying about it…When he was young, Tom was always off doing his thing, working like a madman. He traveled all the time, and was totally focused on his career. When he came home, he didn’t always have much left to give.
“Tom is a very difficult man to get to know on a deep level. It’s almost like he treats Connor like a business associate rather than a son.”
“He’s starting to rebel against his father and the other components in their life, maybe even Scientology. He wants to be independent, but Tom doesn’t want to give up control over his son.”
