Bella captioned the photo with one word: “squad.”
Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s Daughter Bella Is an Artist and Designer
Bella, who lives in London, recently showcased some of her art at an exhibition hosted by Courtney Love, widow of Kurt Cobain, the Daily Mail reports.
Kidman and Cruise adopted Bella and her adoptive brother, Connor, in 1995. The actors divorced in 2001. After their parents’ divorce, Bella reportedly drifted away from Kidman.
In fact, when Bella got married, Kidman didn’t attend the wedding, although she was appearing on stage in London when the wedding occurred.
Bella and Connor are reportedly Scientologists, like Cruise. The religion is very strict about outsiders, and church officials may have encouraged the children to distance from Kidman, who is not a Scientologist herself.
Kidman has declined to comment on her relationships with her adopted children.
But Bella has been liking Kidman’s Instagram posts of late, possibly a sign of a thaw between them.
“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,” a source told New Idea magazine recently.
“Since she was a child, her minders made it clear that Nicole was off-limits,” the source added. “So for her to publicly acknowledge her mother all of a sudden suggests something big is afoot.”
Kidman Has Since Remarried and Had Two Daughters
Meanwhile, the actress has been busy with her second family. In 2005, Kidman met fellow Aussie Keith Urban at a Los Angeles event for prominent Australians. The two eventually married and now have two young daughters together.
In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Kidman recounted their early courtship. She said she was more interested in him than he was in her at first, but they had mutual friends helping things along behind the scenes.
“He actually wasn’t that interested in me at the time—which he now says is not true; he was just sort of intimidated,” she said. “Yeah, I was really, really into him. He took a little time. And [now] he’s like, ‘That is so incorrect, Nicole.’”
The actress and the musician now seem to have found a happy rapport together. And Kidman says that while they’re “always working through stuff,” it’s going well overall.
“I want him to have the best life he can have, and he responds the same way,” she said.
