Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s daughter Isabella, 28, posts a very rare selfie… after crediting dad with keeping her from ‘drowning in my problems’
Former couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman have a daughter named Isabella Kidman Cruise who is rarely seen as she prefers to live her life out of the spotlight.
But on Wednesday the 28-year-old made the rare move of posting a selfie to her Instagram account.
The sister of Connor Cruise looked deep in thought in a black and white portrait. ‘Same face, new prints now available on the shop,’ she said in a caption for her 26K followers.

On her page Bella calls herself an artist and she shares several images of her paintings that use vibrant colors.
She was dressed in a warm zip-up jacket with a scarf and beanie cap with snowflakes here and there.
Her last selfie was posted in September 2020 and before that there was a photo of the painter from August.

Tom and his ex-wife Kidman adopted Bella in 1992. Her biological younger brother, Connor Cruise, now 26, was also adopted by the A-list couple three years later.
In a marketing ad, Bella credited the Church of Scientology for providing the missing piece in her life after undertaking extensive training to become an auditor.
In an email initially shared with London based Scientologists and subsequently published on Scientology blog The Underground Bunker, Bella claimed she was ‘drowning in problems’ before qualifying for the role.

Reflecting on her training, she wrote: ‘It turned out it was exactly what I needed. I dragged out the testing and correction, just made it through the drilling and then finally began my auditing adventure, and wow, I wasn’t prepared.
‘This IS what I had been searching for. The missing piece.’
Bella credited her father, full name Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, her aunt Cass Mapother and various members of the church for helping her through a series of issues while she underwent her training.

‘Thank you to my Dad for everything,’ she wrote. ‘To Cass. To Tash. I would have drowned in my own problems if you hadn’t been there to sup me or get me through the preliminaries.’
Cruise’s son, Connor, is also affiliated with Scientology, but he has never stated or confirmed that he is a practicing member.
Bella, a former art student, has chosen to live her life away from the spotlight in Croydon, a suburb 19 kilometers (12 miles) outside London.
They live in a simple three-bedroom semi-detached house, which they bought for $693,000 (£535,000) in June 2017, according to the title deeds.
She married computer programmer Max in a secret ceremony in 2015.
Just like her father, Bella is a staunch Scientologist, but has been living away from the rest of the Cruise family for the past five years, who have all relocated to be close to the Church headquarters in Clearwater, Florida.
Bella grew apart from Big Little Lies star Nicole after her divorce from the Top Gun star in 2001.
However, the mother and daughter pair may be on the road to reconciliation after fans noticed Bella had recently started liking Nicole’s Instagram posts.

A source told New Idea magazine: ‘Bella popping up on Nicole’s Instagram all of a sudden has got lots of people talking. It’s huge, given everything that’s happened between them.’
While Tom and Nicole initially shared custody of their children, it had been previously reported that Nicole had been estranged from Bella and Connor for years.
The fact that Nicole is not a member of the controversial religion likely makes her a ‘suppressive person’, or SP.

Scientologists are encouraged to ‘disconnect’ from so-called SPs because they are considered a barrier to spiritual growth.
Nicole did not attend her daughter’s wedding, despite being in London performing in a stage show at the time.
The Moulin Rouge! star has remained largely silent about her strained relationship with her adopted children.
‘I’m very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 per cent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is,’ she previously told Who magazine.
Following her divorce from Tom, Nicole welcomed another two daughters, Sunday, 12, and Faith, nine, with her second husband, country singer Keith Urban.
