- Bella, 22, got married to IT consultant Max Parker in London in September
- Her Hollywood father funded the reception, but he wasn’t invited
- The pair reportedly said they didn’t want either set of parents there
- Kidman, Bella’s adoptive mother, was even in London at the time
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were banned from attending their daughter Bella’s wedding, even though her father paid for it, it has been claimed.
The hair and make-up artist wed her boyfriend of less than a year, Max Parker, in a small ceremony at London’s upmarket Dorchester Hotel last month.
Cruise is said to have funded the 22-year-old’s intimate nuptials but, like the other parents, he was told to stay away, TMZ reported.
Kidman, Bella’s adopted mother, was even in London at the time preparing for her stage role in West End production, Photograph 51.

Just married? Isabella Cruise tied the knot with her boyfriend of less than a year during a lavish ceremony in London last month, but she didn’t invite her parents
Not invited: Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, seen together at the Oscars in 2000, did not attend their daughter Bella’s wedding, but Cruise paid for it
The pair supposedly said they didn’t want either sets of parents to attend.
Only a small group of close friends were present for the wedding, with Bella’s brother Connor also not attending in a bid to keep the wedding out of the limelight.
Bella, 22, and her IT consultant boyfriend exchanged vows in one of the five-star establishment’s function rooms, according to Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine, which broke the news of the wedding.
Isabella is believed to have been introduced to her beau through mutual friends, with the pair beginning to date earlier this year.
Max is not thought to be a Scientologist, unlike his new wife and her father and brother.
While she was not present at the wedding, Nicole is currently based in London where she is starring in West End play Photograph 51.
Nicole and her former husband adopted Isabella and 20-year-old Connor in 1992 and 1995 respectively prior to their separation and subsequent divorce in 2001.
Both have embraced Tom’s belief in Scientology, with the religion cited as a wedge between Nicole and her children in director Alex Gibney’s hard-hitting documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.
The Church of Scientology has since denied the claims, while Nicole previously any refuted speculation of a divide prompted by her children’s religious leanings.
Indeed, the 48-year-old star, who has since remarried country singer Keith Urban, with whom she shares daughters Sunday, seven, and five-year-old Faith, insists her children with Tom are still a constant presence in her life.

Artist: Instead of following her famous parents into acting, Isabella this year graduated from the exclusive Delamar Academy of Make-up and Hair
She told DuJour magazine last month she relies on technology to stay in touch with the pair, saying: ‘I have four children, so to stay in touch with them is very important’.
‘I’m definitely engaged in [the Internet and technology] but I don’t let it rule my life. My husband and I never text each other. We never do. Once in a blue moon, we’ll text. But mainly we say, “I want to hear your voice.”‘
Instead of following her famous parents into acting, Isabella this year graduated from the exclusive Delamar Academy of Make-up and Hair.
The school is located at Ealing Studios, West London, a famous institution used for filming big budget movies, TV drama Downtown Abbey and music videos for the likes of Coldplay.
